Acceptable, Good Value

Check-in was painless. Lobby was clean. Parts of the parking lot are dark at night, but it mostly feels safe. Room was clean, everything stocked (coffee maker, iron, towels, trash, toilet paper, soaps, etc.) Breakfast buffet was acceptable, though short-staffed for a bit. Once all team members arrived, it was a good breakfast service. Only issue during this stay was the smell of smoking coming through the bathroom vent from the room next door (our floor was non-smoking). One call to the front desk was needed, and then everything was fine. I would stay here with my family again.

The Wind Did It !

The hotel was great; expect the alarm went off 3 AM, soon stopped. Thought it was the next room. Again the lites and claxson was sounding off. Call the desk - sorry probably the wind caused the alarm to go off. At check-off the desk know nothing. Since it wasn't booked through us can't do anything. Gave me two free coffee coupons. Over priced dino !

Great hotel, great location, and reasonably priced

I stayed at this hotel for a whole week while visiting Austin for the first time. It was extremely clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others looking to visit Austin.

Could have been much better

The hotel itself was clean and the rooms were nice but it could use some improvement. 1. Don't take the 'complimentary breakfast' seriously. Whether this is a misunderstanding on the website's part or the hotel put out the wrong message, there is no complimentary breakfast unless you're on the executive floor. One of the reasons we chose this hotel was for the supposed complimentary breakfast so that it'd make it easy to grab a bite before heading out for the stuff we had planned for the weekend. Our first morning we came down to the breakfast area and asked about what parts of the buffet were complimentary and the hostess told us unless we were on the 7th/executive floor, we would have to pay $7.00 for the muffins, juices, etc. and on a per item basis for the grill. When I showed the hostess that our ticket had complimentary breakfast included, she simply said that those were the rules and couldn't do anything about it. 2. We checked out around 11a on Sunday and about 2p I noticed I accidentally left my kindle behind so I called the front desk. While speaking to the front desk, they told me that without the 'lost/found manager' they couldn't give me any information because they couldn't access the stuff in lost and found. I explained that it was from just a few hours ago and who could I speak to that would receive these things until Monday. They let me know there wasn't anyone else, just this guy, which didn't make sense to me. So I left a message Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Finally Tuesday I get a call back and was told there wasn't any kindle. I'd expected that answer but when I asked if they could double check between the chair cushions where I was reading they let me know that they would have already checked and if it's not in his office, it's not there. Without even getting the room number he left me know that the room has been occupied since so it was now out of his hands, which sounded quite impossible to pin point my room without any mention of it. It would have been nice to at least have some reassurance, even if they didn't really do it, that they did everything they could to help me out. Would I stay this hotel again? No, unfortunately not. Could it have been a much worse stay? Definitely a yes but knowing there are better options out there, I won't be returning.

Austin one-day getaway

Excellent check in and check out. Immaculate room though well-worn (office chair back broken). Easy to find location on interstate with convenient access to downtown Austin. Had to point out advertised complimentary breakfast and was given voucher for members of my party.

Good value over the holidays

The price was really right for a Crown Plaza for our over the holidays stay. The stuff was very pleasant and accommodating. They changed our room when we complained about noise from a nearby side exit door. There are cartridge loaded coffee makers in each room but my wife is a tea drinker and they did not provide tea capability. Otherwise generally a okay experience.

Walls to thin..couldn't sleep

We heard the fight between a couple all night next door. I called the front desk and they called the couple and they took it into the restroom which we could still hear. The window shades need to be updated to curtains that do not allow so much light from the outside. The wall need insulation to keep conversations quiet & private.
