My two teens and I will be visiting Austin late February to tour UT Austin. I am trying to decide between Embassy Suites and the Doubletree Suites. Prices seem comparable. My son would like to really get the feel of life as a college student in Austin and will be spending one night in a dorm but would like to check out the social scene the remaining nights. I am interested in NOT renting a car if possible, preferring to walk to UT and to restaurants.
Which hotel is closer to the "action" so to speak for my son? Which hotel is closer to UT and restaurants (walking distance if possible)?
I appreciate all your help and am looking forward to our trip. Thank you.
