I came to Austin for a meeting in late February and stayed two nights at this hotel. The location is great. It is within walking distance of all downtown office buildings, the state capitol, restaurants and the famous music clubs on Sixth Street and Red River.
Service is very friendly - from the doorman to the front desk clerks to the concierge - everyone I met was helpful.
For an early riser like me, there is a small kiosk that opens at 6:30 am, serving Starbucks coffee, bagels, scones and yogurt cups with fruit and granola. The breakfast buffet at the main hotel restaurant in the atrium is reasonably priced and very good with many options, including a made to order omelet station, hot dishes such as breakfast pizza, pancakes and the usual breakfast meats, and a cold buffet of fresh cut fruits, berries, dried fruits, granola, yogurt, etc.
A few of the people who attended my meeting and stayed at this hotel reported hearing very loud "YEEEEEEEEEEEE-HA!!!!" yells (hey, it IS Texas!) down on the street at the 7th Street end of the hotel around 2:30 am that kept them awake for a half hour or so. I heard nothing. If you're a light sleeper, you may want to ask for a room facing the interior atrium or at the 8th Street end of the hotel.
The bed was very comfortable and everything was impeccably clean. The only negative comment is about the business center - very expensive Internet access. Why is free Internet in the business center such a rarity outside of the Northeast?
Except for the expensive Internet, this is a great hotel that I would stay in again when I come to Austin.
