Nice hotel, excellent staff

This hotel is about what you would expect from a Sheraton in terms of the look and feel of the place. What I was impressed with was the staff. The check-in process was simple and the lady was so friendly. Same with check-out. They really made me feel like they would go out of their way to help me with anything I needed. And they did it in a friendly way with a smile. We upgraded to the club view and the view was nice from the club level. We could see downtown Austin. The food for breakfast was really better than expected with berries and eggs and toast. The coffee was excellent. Overall, this is a great hotel in this price range.

Could have been better

The first room I checked into must have been a smoking room in previous years. It still smelled of smoke. Checkin was smooth and front desk was friendly. They changed the room. In the evening wanted something to snack on. Room service stopped at 11 so had to resort to vending machine. Vending machines only took quarters. Went to front desk to ask for change. The clerk told me they do not keep change for guests. Had to go out and down the street to convinence store. Asked for a late check out, which to my surprise after being granted that it would cost and additional 50.00. I feel the hotel was of value until started seeing all the extra charges added on.

My wife and I were very pleased with our stay at the Sheraton, Austin. The facility was great and the proximity to eateries was awesome and so convenient. We definitely look forward to staying at the Sheraton Austin again in the near future.

Several dining spots within a few blocks radius of the hotel. Leave your vehicle in the parking garage, save gas and enjoy a brisk walk which is great exercise.

Someone else's room

Someone else had been in our room, I suppose a guest who decided to change rooms. They didn't go back in and straighten things up. Someone had obviously been laying in the bed, lights were all on, luggage rack out, AC turned on, etc. So we asked to change rooms, they took care of it. Pam at the front desk was wonderful, upgrading our room and providing free breakfast. Overall, this hotel was not worth how much we spent for it, but the staff was nice and helpful.
