3 night business trip. Staff always helpful and friendly. Room service was prompt and reasonably priced for a downtown hotel. Recommend king room on lakeside -- larger and quieter rooms, plus you get a great view of the bats flying to the "bat bridge" in the evenings.

We stayed here during a conference and were happy with our choice, primarily because the hotel is right next to the Town Lake which has a great walking/running path, and also right next to the Congress Street bridge where the bats emerge every night. The room was oddly shaped but that meant that we had an amazing view over the lake - it was a nice place to work and watch out the floor to ceiling windows. The Starbucks in the hotel was great, I used the gym one day, and went in the pool once.

Food-wise, my favorite spot was the Crepe place just 2 blocks away. Went there twice, for a lunch and breakfast crepe, and would have also enjoyed sitting there with a book and cafe au lait.

The hotel is a 5 min walk from the convention center - just about 3 blocks.

Down-sides to be prepared for: the closet is teeny, not really a closet, and the bathroom is just functional. And internet costs extra.

Clean, comfortable rooms. Staff is courteous and friendly. (But all people in Texas are!) Parking garage is a bit tight (could not imagine trying to park a huge SUV in there).

Nice view off the back side of hotel to watch the bats fly out at sunset. Get a table in the back of the TGI Friday's located in the hotel and you can watch them while you dine. Was a great unexpected surprise for us.

All the attractions including the Capital are just blocks away. Great choice of restaurants and clubs all within walking distance. I felt more than safe walking to and from 6th street area and back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the backside of the hotel if you are there during

You expect clean and comfortable when you book into a Radisson, and this hotel lives up to the brand name. However it has more going for it in a friendly and attentive staff, and a location that can't be beat: within walking distance of Austin's various entertainment districts, interesting restaurants and the largest urban bat colony living under the Ann Richards Bridge.

Very clean hotel rooms. Has a TGI Fridays and starbucks on property. Great location to Austin entertainment district and to the Congress street bridge. They are on the corner of Congress and all you need to do is walk onto bridge about 7:30 to 8 pm. It was 8PM for us and you will see a 1.5 million colony of bats emerge from under the bridge. It was quite a sight and something I will always remember. The pool was great. I heard it was one of the best downtown and i believe it! TGI Fridays served drinks and food by pool. Very relaxing. They have the sleep number beds and it was wonderful. I would recommend this hotel for business or families. Be sure and join the Carlson club before going and you can enjoy free internet. Great time!!

We booked the Radisson through Hotwire, and I am so glad that we did. We stayed here for a week while we attended training at UT.

Location: Right on the corner of 1st (Cesar Chavez) and Congress. This is a perfect location right in between the South Congress area and the 4th & 6th Street area. Even better, it is the PERFECT location for bat-watching because it is right there on the Congress Avenue bridge.

Amenities: Join the Radisson club ahead of time, and you will get free Wifi access. It is normally 9.95 a day, so this is a no-brainer. They have a large pool in the back right between the hotel and Lady Bird Lake/Congress Ave bridge. The TGI Fridays servers come out to the pool, so if you want drinks/food while you are out there, you can get some. There is a Starbucks in the lobby if you like that.

Staff: This was some of the nicest staff that I've encountered. From the valet guys when we arrived to the front desk staff to the concierge, we always saw smiling faces and very helpful advice. We walked almost everywhere just because, and the concierge was always there to help us find places to go.

Room: Perfectly clean and spacious. Comfortable Sleep Number beds. Clean bathrooms.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Austin. The training was horrible, but we always looked forward to our evenings. I think the only thing I can complain about is that there was no refrigerator in the room. Oh, and you have to pay for parking, but I don't know of many hotels in the city that offer free parking. There are some, but not very many.
