Very nice surprise on a business trip to Austin last October. Arrived early to settle in and chill out before a writer's conference, and found just what I was looking for: a quiet and restful place near downtown Austin. Service was first rate, room spacious and very comfortable, with a spacious balcony I enjoyed relaxing on with a cigar (non-smoking room).
Very quiet at night- slept like a baby.
When not sleeping, the legendary Austin music strip is just 11 blocks away, walk or taxi.
There's no restaurant on premises, but that's fine, since there is an excellent Tex-Mex joint directly across the street and wonderful, funky little coffee place a block away that serves breakfast and lunch. There's also a Japanese restaurant across the street open for dinner.
The room wasn't exactly a bargain at $240 a night w/tax (I travelled solo), but you get what you pay for, and I'd recommend this hotel for either business or pleasure when visiting Austin. What a great city.
