I was in town for a wedding and stayed here for a night. The self parking outside is a pleasant surprise, as I am tired of mandatory valet where they get you for $30 a day.
Inside the hotel was clean, and the people at the front desk got us checked in quickly. The room was clean, and modern. It looked like it had been updated recently. The showers are somewhat weird for a hotel. They are square and have sliding doors. On the upside, they have great water pressure and the water gets nice and hot. I tried to make a cup of coffee, but my coffee maker just belched steam and did not end up working.
At one point I called the front desk and asked them to call me a cab. They declined and told me to download a cab calling app. I was a little stunned, as this was the first time I have not been called a cab by a hotel. I know I could call one, but I thought hotels usually had a go-to cab company. Plus at $240 per night if I want one phone call I feel like they should be accommodating.
This is a clean, modern hotel. If I am in Austin again and the price is right, I will stay here again.
