Stayed here for 4 nights while in town for SpiceWorld 2013 (conference for IT pros).

So many things to rave about, in no particular order: manager's reception, breakfast and location.

Manager's reception: two hours of free booze every night from 5:30p-7:30p

Breakfast: daily cooked to order breakfast downstairs in the dining area. Omelets, pancakes, BACON, etc

Location:
Right by Congress Ave bridge where you can view ~1M bats fly out every evening
10 steps from the bus stop that'll take you directly to the airport (take bus 100)
10 minute walk to the convention center
15 minute walk to 6th Ave (nightlife, restaurants, shops)

Also, huge two-room suites, friendly staff and clean property.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river.

I spent five nights at the Embassy Suites in Austin. The. hotel was really conveniently located, spotlessly clean and check in and out was simple.

However, it seemed to me that the hotel was on the edge of being unworkable. The internet was extremely spotty, the phones worked intermittently, the batteries in the remote went out in both TVs, the key card only worked for 24 hours maximum before needing a recharge, taxis wouldn't respond to calls because the shuttle drivers talked so many people of using them instead of the cabs, the drop off area was so small that cars couldn't maneuver and I had to meet people on Congress because it was so inconvenient to drive in. I didn't have a car, but $16.00 a day for parking in a garage around the corner seems crazy.

The staff was polite, but totally disengaged. It really felt like an imposition to talk to them.

To sum up, a clean, convenient hotel with a crazy kind of edginess, you just never know what's going to work and what isn't.

Good location close to both 6th street action and S Congress shops and restaurants. Like all Embassy Suites, the rooms are spacious, but we did have problems with not being able to set the clock (oddly, we're told only the "engineers" can set their clocks - also experience this in San Antonio Embassy). Clock was 2.5 hours off which was annoying. WHy doesn't the housekeeper notice and get it fixed? Toilet seat was also very loose...again, poor attention paid by housekeepers to keep maintenance informed. Lastly, the AC went out at a crucial time getting ready for a formal event. Hot ! The "engineers" fixed it within 90 minutes while we were getting showered and dressed. Free happy hour great! Nice complimentary full breakfast, but coffee kept running out on consecutive days ! Overall, average hotel because employees have to be asked to fix stuff or bring out coffee.

Room Tip: Try to get a corner room.....better views and sometimes 2 windows

In a great location if you have a car. Midway between SoCo and downtown activities. Self-parking is easy in the garage next door. We were put on the top floor, the premiere level, which only meant complimentary bottles of water and bags of trail mix.

Extremely dated decor, including plastic ivy throughout. Complimentary breakfast is pretty plain, but gets your day started. Everything, including our bathroom, was spotlessly clean!

I always get good, consistent service and accommodations with Embassy Suites. This time was no different. Nice lobby and great bar! The staff was welcoming, the rooms were nice and spacious. The internet connection was scarce and the noise in the morning was annoying; but that definately will not deter myself from staying there again. Very pleasant experience!
