Great Get Away

My teenage boy girl twins and I stayed at the hotel, and we were very pleased. We worked out, ran the trail by the lake just outside the hotel, and we loved the pool and its view of the lake. It is also very centrally located to fun things to do in Austin.

Great Staff

The staff was very friendly - from the front desk personnel, the restaurant staff even the shuttle driver. Wish the pool were larger. Other than that, a great place to stay after touring downtown Austin.

Great hotel!

I haven't stayed here in over ten years and was afraid that over time, there would be a dropoff. It was spectacular and just as I remembered it. The pool view overlooking the lake is amazing. The breakfast was fantastic. Thanks so much.

Family getaway

Staff was polite and friendly. Free parking and WiFi is great considering the location. Stayed in a tower room facing the highway, but the room was very well insulated from the noise.

Average

Overall the stay was nice, I should have booked the "executive" Suite, Since the view of the lake was at somewhat of an odd angle, to see it clearly we had to step outside on the pool's balcony. I'm wondering if they have another pool on the tower which is part of that "executive" area. I hope they at least have another gym in it... The pool was small, and so was the gym area. The Hotel staff is courteous and helpful, just as others have mentioned before. The location is perfect for a short drive to downtown, and being next to the freeway makes it easy to get anywhere else in town. If you're up for a run around the lake, you can take a jog around at any time of the day since it's so close.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you're in the area around the time you want to see the Mexican Bats, it's a "Mid walk" down to Congress Bridge. Make sure that you study the Austin freeways if you're new to the area, a simple "U-turn" might take you 5-10 minutes due to the next underpass to get back to where you wanted to go.

Holiday Inn in Austin

We enjoyed our stay here. The outdoor pool on the 6th floor was refreshing, and you have a great view up the Colorado River towards the Congress Street bridge where you can see the bats flying. Perfect for bat watchers that want a great spot. Close to great food, shopping and the capitol building.
