Convenient location and complimentary transport.

The hotel is a short distance away from numerous bars and restaurants which the guests found extremely convenient. Those who wanted to visit the center of Austin and venture further afield were pleased to find that the hotel offers a free shuttle service making it very easy for guests to plan their outings without having to worry about parking and transportation.

Pleasant and well-appointed communal areas

Many of the guests enjoyed spending time in the on-site bar which was said to have a very pleasant atmosphere and decor. Apart from the stylish bar, guests said that being able to have their breakfast and morning coffee on the wrap-around veranda was one of the highlights of their stay.

Spacious and well-equipped rooms.

Negative Reviews

Unimpressive views.

Some of the room look out onto the parking lot and the wall of the adjoining building much to the disappointment of some of the guests. If you are keen on having a picturesque view it's advisable to inform the staff prior to making your booking.

Sluggish Wi-Fi.

Although the hotel advertises free Wi-Fi guests who wanted to connect to the internet from their rooms said that the signal was very weak and that they had to take their device closer to the reception area in order to get online.

Noise issues.

The hotel is located close to a major road and some guests objected to the level of traffic noise which they described as quite intrusive and prevented many from getting a good night's sleep.
