Comfortable and worth it!

I stayed at the Renaissance when on a business trip to Austin. The rooms and bathrooms are large and set up very nicely and were very comfortable. The fitness center and pool, located in the lower levels of the hotel, are really nice too, with their own outdoor decks. You can walk to the mall next door from the hotel, through a little park. The staff was friendly and helpful with suggestions. My only peeve about my stay will have to be the sound that echoes up into the rooms from the atrium below, but that's just the architecture and honestly did not affect my stay very much. I'd definitely stay here again!

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a walk out the back of the hotel to the park and mall next door. There are several restaurants and stores. There's also a nice overlook from where you can view over the wooded area and lake.

Great option for the offer

Walking distance from various spots for food and shopping. Very nice staff, clean rooms, taxis always available, room service (could use more options but food is good). No free wifi (that was a bummer)

Dinner at Uchi - reservations are hard to get but you can walk in just make sure you're ok with waiting for 1hr. It's worth it - go hungry so you can try as much as you can

Great people, Nice hotel

The staff was amazing. Everyone was nice and super accommodating. The hotel was clean and the restaurant had good food. The servers were nice and professional. My room was nice, but I wish it didn't face the central indoor courtyard (it can get loud.) The valet was quick and courteous. The only cons: no free high-speed WiFi and the location is VERY far from downtown.

Great hotel stay

The hotel was very nice and clean. It located outside of downtown Austin but is convieniently located. We were 10-15 minutes drive from anywhere we needed to go. The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed everything about this stay.

All kinds of entertainment are just a short drive away. The hotel is located near the major roads and highways so getting where you want to go is pretty easy.

Enjoyable parents weekend

Had my parents and aunt stay for the weekend. They said beds were extremely comfortable, the rooms are very roomy and the decor is beautiful. Even though the hotel was busy, they had no noise issues. Check in staff were polite. The bell hop was wonderful, extremely helpful and friendly which I greatly appreciated with getting my parents and elderly aunt in and out of the car in the very cold weather! Breakfast was just okay. I would be happy to have them stay again, since they said they enjoyed their stay immensely.
