I had no idea

Would recommend Sun, Nov 29, 2015
I am from Austin. You'd think I would have know about this hotel. But. I didn't. What a lovely property! The other Historic Hotel, which I will not name, seems to overshadow this gem downtown. I was pleased with this one night stay for Thanksgiving. The staff are friendly and professional. The room was lovely and very very clean without any overwhelming smell of cleaning solutions. The bed was comfortable although the very firm mattress would be better with a soft pillow overlay. I loved the pillows. Please know all parking is valet and I believe it's charged. I didn't find free wifi either., but the hotel is right in the heart of downtown within walking distance of the Capital, 6th st, etc.

Good stay!

Would recommend Sat, Sep 12, 2015
The hotel is centrally situated, walking distance from most downtown sights and sounds. Or just drive about, as you'd do in Austin. You're greeted by a proper lobby, with armchairs and sofas, refreshments and reading material. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious very well kept and plush almost. Loved the little vanity section in the bathroom! Stop by the restaurant connected to the hotel for your fill of delicious tacos and margaritas! There is also a gym and tiny long pool in the basement. My only peeve is that parking is valet only. Since I was staying only one night, I opted to use a parking garage around the block.

Austin gem

Would recommend Tue, Oct 14, 2014
A centrally located hotel; not to far from 6th street, but not too close. I attended a meeting that was held at the Convention Center and it was an easy, comfortable walk to the CC. There is a great burger joint just across the street: The Wholly Cow. The hotel staff were all wonderful

Dining

While Roppolo's pizza is well known, try the Jackalope's instead.

Great Time. Weekend stay

Would recommend Mon, Aug 25, 2014
This is a beautiful place to stay and is located close to everything in Downtown Austin. 6th street and great resturants nearby. The Staff are excellent there. The only cons I have with the place is that the A/C did not work very well in the room. It stayed warm. Also, If you don't like a firm bed then you are going to have a problem. My wife and I did not sleep well on this matress.

Dining

The hotel resturant "Roaring Fork" was great but a little pricey. About $42 for a steak meal. Fantastic food.

Work Retreat

Would recommend Mon, Jul 14, 2014
This hotel is in a fantastic location, close to the action but just far enough away to enjoy peace quiet when needed. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The comfort of the bed was average which was somewhat dissappointing for a 4 star hotel. You can tell the hotel was remodeled, the entry was grand but the room seemed very hodge podge and somewhat strange if the decor matters. The bathroom was very nice with the exception of the hard towels that felt very scratchy. The hotel is a great price considering the location but be aware, there are extra charges for EVERYTHING. The usual upcharges and more. Overall a nice place but I may try another on my next visit to Austin.
