Reviewed 27 March 2014

The hotel was nice except the TV never worked even after they came up to fix or replace it. I missed all of the NCAA games on Sunday. I was, othersise, very satidfied with the hotel. The service was average.

Enjoyed the hotel staff and their quick ability to satisfy our every whim. Very nice and professional staff that really know how to please. Quick response to any questions or needs that my family and I had.

We found the hotel really comfortable and well appointed. It is really handy for the university, which is why we chose the place, but it is a fair distance from Downtown. This didn't bother us as we are always happy to walk when on holiday, but it is well over a mile to 6th Street, some of it along fairly quiet streets.

I thought it would be good to pay a bit more for a "city view" and there was a great view over Downtown from our room. However, given the proximity to the busy Interstate, which lies between the hotel and the city centre, our room was very noisy - and this did disturb us a bit. In retrospect it might have been better to have been in a standard room.

We were room only, but there is an excellent diner right next to the hotel, which serves great breakfasts.

Room Tip: If you have a city view, take ear plugs.

This is one of the host hotels for SXSW. It was a bit north to be convenient especially since you could not get cab service nor shuttle at the hotel. They were very nice, but attention to detail not so much. The clock was still in CST. No room service menu and you had to move the coffee maker to find a plug. Simple stuff that you shouldn't have to even think of

Stayed here for a 2 day event at the Erwin Center, so this hotel was very convenient. Staff was friendly, entryways were secure. Room was spotless and very spacious with an area for work and good quality toiletries. Disappointed that there was no refrigerator, microwave, or in-room safe - basics in rooms costing a lot less than this one. Other than that, no complaints.

Ordered a room through hotels.com for 5 people, check in was fast and easy. The room was quite large and easily big enough for the 5 of us. I would say good value for money and good location if you are on a weekend trip wishing to party and sightsee.

Everything about our stay was fantastic... We needed the room for a second night and the manager at the front desk was great about securing that for us at a very good price... the place was clean and the breakfast buffet was good... no complaints at all... would stay here again... Thanks for a great stay....
