We stayed here in order to attend a concert at the Austin Music Hall, which was about a 7 minute walk up the street. For us, location was wonderful. It was very easy to access from the highway (we drove from Dallas) and easy to get around the city with GPS.
Valet parking here can be nightmarish...lots of long waits to park and leave keys as well as to retrieve the car when leaving. The valet stand had 3 or 4 staff working it, but it still wasn't enough.
Most of the hotel staff from the sidewalk to the check-in appeared to be college aged kids, and in fact most of the guests were too the weekend we were there. Finding ear plugs already provided on the bedside table had me fearing the worst, but we never needed them, which was a nice surprise!
The hotel is pretty big and because of that has an "every floor looks the same, and all guests blend together" feel to it. But that comes with a big chain hotel.
The room was clean, quiet and roomy enough for us. Could have used a bit more counterspace in the bathroom, but everything there was fine too.
Breakfast buffet was robust and good but hard to find a table both mornings we were there.
While this was a pretty generic hotel experience, we'd probably return if in the area again.
