Stylish suites just outside Austin

Just four miles from downtown Austin, the Embassy Suites Austin Central's façade resembles that of the traditional hotel, but upon entering guests find a distinct environment. The southwestern style lobby has tiled ceilings, ornate furniture and sparkling chandeliers, leading guests into a ten-story tropical atrium with waterfalls, palm trees, lush foliage and an abundance of natural light. All suites feature kitchenettes and sitting areas with a sofa bed, chairs and second TV.

Highlights
  • Ten-story atrium with waterfalls and lush foliage
  • Complimentary cooked-to-serve hot breakfast
  • Manager's reception each evening with complimentary cold drinks
Location

The Embassy Suites Austin is located just north of Capital Plaza Shopping Center, four miles northeast of downtown Austin.

Rooms

All guests at the Embassy Suites Austin Central have spacious, two-room suites with 200-thread-count linens, one or two beds and a sleeper sofa. A soothing shade of blue dominates the suite, complemented by white and beige accents. Guests can lounge on the sofa while watching TV, get some fresh air on the balcony or prepare a quick bite to eat in the kitchenette. An activity table with upholstered chairs is a perfect place to enjoy a meal. Bathrooms have a marble vanity and feature Bloom Energy bath products. Wireless Internet is available (fees may apply).

Features

Wake up and catch the full, cooked-to-order breakfast. Start your day with an omelet, then set out to explore Austin's many attractions. Return to the hotel in time for a cold drink at the complimentary manager's reception in the atrium or a relaxing soak in the hotel's whirlpool. If you're up for a jog, hit the Embassy Suites Austin Central's fitness center, where each of the Precor cardio machines has its own TV, or go for a swim in the indoor pool. The Lynx Steakhouse serves American cuisine for lunch or dinner. Request a seat with a view of the lush tropical atrium.

 

The hotel's courtesy shuttle takes guests anywhere within a two-mile radius of the hotel. Complimentary self-parking is available, as well as wireless Internet access (fees may apply).

Great Weekend Getaway

The hotel is beautiful and the staff were all kind and welcoming. A big kudos to Marcus who works breakfast. He took the time to check to see which foods were ok for my daughter who was a good allergy. Later, he even checked to make sure she was enjoying her food. Breakfast was fabulous. The kids love the huge atrium, beautiful elevators and koi ponds inside.

Just OK

This hotel is showing its age - everything felt a little worn and dated. The room was basically clean but needed a good carpet shampooing. The location is convenient, if you can navigate your way off I-35, and the made-to-order breakfast is always a winner.

Noise

The evening cocktails was very nice but the steak in the I ordered was $33.00 and was hard to chew. My room was very clean and everything looked great until it was time to go to bed. They put me in a room on the corner next to the ice machine and the elevator machinery. Needless to say, I did not sleep. Breakfast was very nice. Staff were very nice.

Fun Girls weekend getaway

We used this hotel for a girl's weekend away. There are two queen beds and a pull out sofa bed in another room. There is a good sized fridge and microwave. The free breakfast buffet is great. There is a small, but well kept fitness room. Clean hotel in a good location. Walking distance to Target! The only downside is they allow pets, with dogs barking early in the morning!
