“Still A Wonderful Resort”
Reviewed 27 October 2010

We chose the Unlimited Fazio Package (appears to be the guarantee to Fazio availability) for two and were joined by another couple. In case you are wondering how much Fazio is enough ... your subsequent rounds that day are on a space available basis. We were there Texas/OU weekend and it was pretty quiet. Try alternate shot or scramble golf for your second outing of the day (why wear yourself out?). There are four golf courses: Fazio Foothills and Crenshaw Cliffside are right on the resort property (Foothills is a championship caliber track for championship caliber players - not for 18 handicappers), Fazio Canyons (lots of fun) is about two miles away (shuttle service), and the Palmer Lakeside is in Spicewood, Texas (40 minutes west!). Check in for all four is in the pro shop downstairs at the main resort building (very efficient overall). If Fazio Foothills is "cart path only", don't bother; play somewhere else. If Fazio Foothills has been overseeded within the last 10 days, it will be cart path only. Rental clubs are Calaway X-22 at $80 a day and includes a dozen Calaway balls in a logo tote bag (they try to make it a good value!).

Our room (in the original building) was very nice.

The restaurants and services are first rate. You don't need to leave the property. Free self parking is abundant.

The staff was on the money with suggestions and ideas for off-site dining which included a true Mexican dinner and a local breakfast hangout. However, we we couldn't wait to get back to the 8212 Bar and enjoy an amazing hamburger or pork nachos followed by a grapefruit martini!

The room was beautiful with a relaxing view of the local hill country. The bed was very comfortable that I did not miss my Tempurpedic bed to much.

Austin is a wonderful place to visit and the location of the club is perfect.

'Twas the day before Memorial Day..... My bf, the baby & I decide to do a quickie getaway just for our lil family... So off we went to Austin..

We left pretty late evening, so it was dark.. We got to Austin around 11:30pm.. It was hard to find the street that leads to the other stret that leads to the hotel entrance. The first street was kind of cool because the road was curvy (lol) and you get to see all this big big houses by the golf courses... Yes, I said golf courses because Barton Creek have several golf courses not just one and you can only play if you have a membership with them or you're a guest of the hotel. The second street was pretty short, lead up to the hotel entrance. They need more lighting at night....

The valet guys were nice & courteous.. The bellman was even nicer. We got a lot of stuff with us because we decided to bring the baby's exersaucer/jumper & her big round floatie so she can swim with us.. hehe plus the baby's bag, her toys bag & food/formula bag, our overnight duffel & our snack bag and the baby's pillow.... yeahhh we travel with extra baggage... lol

He hauled it up, yes I know it's his job.. then he organize our stuff around the room.. Meanwhile, the check-in was easy as a breeze. They got my reservation and comply with my request for a baby crib in our room *yayyy* Oh and he went downstairs to get us our bar fridge key (yes, they locked it), and then he empty the bar enough so we can put the baby formula bottles there. Awesome blossom!!

The room was pretty roomy. It was clean & neat. The bathroom is nice but can be nicer.. The hotel looks like it's pretty old, however it's nice enough. Our bed was comfy. The baby crib looks antique hehe... Our baby slept there peacefully with her musical seahorse..

We woke up around 10-ish... Get ready & go downstairs for swimming.... *another yay* Plenty of towels for the pool which is nice! Got our spot right in front of the pool steps on the right.... The view from the pool to the golf course was amazing by the way! Got some music playing in the background which is nice... The water is perfect.... Our baby was so happy swimming away.... Around 11am the pool was packed.... It's Memorial Day so yea everyone is at the pool! No more empty recliners.... There's still people coming & some of them have to just lay their stuff on the concrete because the pool was so jam-packed! It was awesome!! The bar is cool too because they have their waiter & waitress go around with the menu and take orders.... Plusssss they serve complimentary ice coldddd water with lemon... In this hot day, that's a big big plus for you Barton Creek!

We just chilled on our lounger around the pool... Sunbathing, people watching, enjoying the view, relaxing.... It was NICE..... After that we went for a walk... There's a nature's trail... Another plus thing....

Then we went back to the comfort of our air-conditioned room.... The robe is pretty nice. We took a lil nap after shower and then we are ready to check out... Late check-out is complimentary. Another Plus for you Barton Creek! Check out was easy breezy.... Oh the valet is extra charge, you can park the car yourself if you want to, but we didn't want to, so we opt for the valet & it was worth it!! The valet got our car ready & the bellman put all our "extra baggage" in the trunk & front seat lol.... Off we go Bye Barton Creek Resort, until next time! Adiossss...

Sounds like this wonderful family had a nice time during their visit with us. Their opening note reminds me to make sure that all of our guests come and enjoy the 1st Annual Holiday Lights and Ice Extravaganza between Nov 24th and Jan 2nd this Holiday Season. We will install a 3,800sf Ice Skating Rink under the Resort Pavilon along with some spectacular lighting displays around the resort. Appreciate this past guest's feedback.

Barton Creek is a very nice hotel. I've stayed there several times on trips to Austin and would stay there again. It's an older hotel that has been renovated over the years so some rooms are larger than others. The layout of the hotel is very weird - I felt like I walked a mile every time we left the room. The spa services were excellent. The spa is nice but smaller than I expected. The gym is one of the best hotel gyms I have seen. Lots of machines and free weights and they offer various aerobic classes, as well. The hotel is known for it's golf course. Overall, a very nice hotel with excellent services. The staff is very attentive to the guests.

This hotel is average and not worth the price you will pay. However, there are limited places to stay in the Westlake area of Austin so I did not want to pay for a taxi nor did I want to be downtown during ACL weekend. The staff was okay and mostly under the age of 25. The bar and room service both end at 1:00 and you cannot check-in to the hotel past 1:30 so if you are coming in from out of town, plan to arrive early. I will say though that this resort has one of the most golf courses and the location is breathtaking. Another thing is you are mixed with the country club members and those staying at the hotel and its just kind of an uncomfortable mix of people. The members make you feel like you are not welcome. Now, I hjope your still reading because the was the WORST PART of our trip...When we were at their 8212 Wine & Bar Club, my best friends husband found a plastic looking hinge in his burger and pulled it out of his mouth!!!!! The waiter told us it must have come off a plastic bag they use for portions. But I mean how do you miss that in a burger!?!? Then she (a platinum blonde) found a black hair wrapped around her french fry! So if you do decide to stay here, skip this restaurant. Oh and they did NOT comp is meal.

Barton Creek is a great getaway. Everything from the rooms to the restaurants to the golf courses are top-notch. Add to this the exceptional service provided by the Resort staff, and Barton Creek becomes a great place to vacation. I will be back!

We live in Austin but opted to stay the night at BCR for our wedding night instead of home. There was a 2 night minimum which we thought was a waste of money since we live here, so we worked it out and was able to schedule manicures instead of staying the extra night. The morning of the wedding, the girls and I met up and got our manicures. Not impressed. One girl received only a polish change, but of course I was charged full price (didn't find out till later that this happened.) Nice ladies, but that's about it. My assistant had scheduled a quick lunch at their grill weeks prior. We popped over there right at opening time and they hadn't gotten a large table together. The hostess even noted that they were expecting us. They knew we were on a time crunch, but still took their time. It took over an hour to get our food. We were their first customers. The night of the wedding, we were expecting a quick check-in, but it seemed like they didn't even know we were showing. Why have reservations? Once we got into our room, we were expecting a 4-star deluxe suite. Nope... not what we got. Is this all that Austin has to offer for luxury?! The suite was 2 regular rooms converted into a large suite.The bathroom wasn't even touched. Small for $450/night. The bathroom, which we thought would be large was simple. There was a sink inside the room just outside the bathroom. The bathtub was your typical shower/bath combo. Which unfortunately was covered in soap scum and a dead roach. Overall not impressed. Waste of money. Waste of a good first night as husband and wife. Thanks BCR!

I was disappointed to read the review above regarding the issues that our newly weds experienced on what is always meant to be a very happy and joyous time. We will reach out to this couple in order to speak with them. It continues to be very important to ensure that all of our guests have a very pleasant experience with us.
