This was a good location for downtown Austin and not too far from the conference center. I wasn't facing the river but there was a path down to the river where people gather to watch the bats come out in the evening. I saw that other review talk about dated room - I must have been in one of the updated rooms because my room was great. And staff could not have been friendlier.

Room Tip: Had I thought ahead, I would have asked for a room facing the river

I wrote a review a few days ago about the rooms being dated and the hotel not having cable. The hotel responded that they offer 75 channels. I would just like to clarify that the night I stayed at the hotel there were only a few (about 6-10) local channels. Maybe the cable was out that night, but it would have been nice if the staff informed me of this when I checked in, so I was at least aware. For the hotel to just respond that there are in fact 75 channels is irritating, because it simply was NOT true last week when I stayed there. I am not a picky reviewer, but I felt the need to post that review, because it was pretty irritating, and I thought people should know. For the hotel to respond and basically say that I am lying just makes me realize what terrible customer service they have.

The rooms are spacious - but dated. Couch ripped, found diaper under bed skirt, and rather shabby for Radisson. Disappointed that there was only one cup of coffee bag each day. Really? Would not go back. (Loved the fish aquarium in lobby).

This hotel is a little under-rated by many reviewers. It has a great location, walkable to most places in downtown and South Congress, friendly staff, a small pool, great bar area and nice restaurant, great deals on food and drinks for happy hour. OK, so maybe the rooms are a bit dated, but they are clean and comfortable. What's not to like?

Stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend. Great location! Walking distance to all downtown Austin attractions. Lobby, bar/restraunt, and pool are beautiful. Overlooking the river and the Congress street bridge. Happy hour from 4 - 6 daily with half off drinks and bar food. Rooms are a bit dated but clean and comfortable. You could not ask for a nicer staff. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great location and a wonderful hotel staff. We had a great stay!

I'm not a very picky person, but the rooms of the hotel are pretty dated. Also, if you like to curl up in bed and watch cable channels you don't get at home, you are out of luck. They have about 10 local channels. You would think at $150/night, they could afford to give the guests a few extra channels.

The staff are so friendly in this hotel. The Valet guys are really helpful too. The outdoor pool is nice, altough its not very big.
The rooms are comfortable but in need of a refurb. The handle was hanging off our bathroom door but it did the job for what we needed it to do.
