    Breakfast was good

    The wifi wouldn't work and the desk person didn't offer premium for free. Said yep it's not working on your phone and seemed disinterested in fixing the problem.

    The room was great. Plenty of room. Comfortable bed. Pool was not big but very nice. Got in room food from restaurant. Burger was good.

    Only thing I didn't like is $25.00/night to park your car in their garage.

    Loved the inside heated pool & hot tub. Also liked a full, hot breakfast, not a muffin and fruit like other 'so-called' breakfasts. Also pleased to find out that there was a hotel-provided van that could drop us off close by.

    I guess it was a bit spendy, but still worth it.

    Decor dated, just seemed drab

    Very good

    Value for money in a good location. Very large suite with plenty of room to stretch out. Very easy stroll to some of Austin's tourist highlights, with the option of taking the Hotel Shuttle.

    The dining area looks a little tired. Fairly dark and uninviting. The free evening snacks were nothing wonderful and we can't comment on our breakfast as the kitchen closed at 1000 and we had slept it.Room looked out on the high rise car park.

    The hotel is centrally located for downtown Austin. Large suites with tea/coffee machine and fridge. Good display of free snacks at happy hour plus wine, beer and soft drinks. Pool and gym available. Shuttle bus available for local drop off which runs on a tip basis. Staff very helpful and friendly.

    Bar closed at 11 which is rather early

    We liked the breakfast, valet parking. The room was updated. However, the lobby area smelled like the pool, and the lobby was rather outdated.
