This hotel was great. It was in a great location, walk-able to downtown restaurants and bars and the Congress bridge where the bats come out. Everyone at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The hotel breakfast was good and offered a lot including an omelet station. Rooms were a great size and comfortable bed; just needs a little updating but nothing serious. Would definitely recommend.

Great trip

Really nice location and accommodations were awesome. Manager’s special keeps me coming back.

The air conditioning didn’t work in September !!

I wish the pool was 24 hours like the ftness room

I have been coming to embassy suites with my family since I was a kid. We loved the breakfast and my parents enjoyed the happy hour. Since then, I’ve always chosen to stay at embassy suites because it was always such a treat when I stayed there as a kid and has always been one of my favorite hotels. This is the first time I’ve been since covid and I was excited about the happy hour only to find that I only get 2 drink vouchers and a choice of either beer or wine in cups that are not even remotely the size of a small glass of wine. The breakfast used to be amazing with made to order omelets and pancakes. This breakfast was absolutely unsatisfactory. Though there was opportunity to fill your plate/plates, the food was not at all what I expected or what was advertised. The parking cost $33 to walk behind the hotel and up 4 flights of stairs in 98 degree humid, Texas heat with an injured knee because the elevator was out of order. I woke up sweating even though the air conditioner was set to 64. House keeping came in waking up my fiancé at 9am when check out isn’t until 11. I was immensely upset to have spent my money here and do not intend on returning.

We stayed the weekend, but didn't get our room turned on Saturday, at all. We had to call to request fresh towels. We saw trash items left outside the door of other rooms that were not picked up timely.

They got rid of the actual happy hour and now you get two small tea cups of beer. Breakfast was far below standard but could be because of Covid. Staff, as always , was really great!

Great place to stay, close to everything.

The Embassy Suites in downtown Austin is an excellent place to relax & recharge as you stay close to the many entertainment & historical sites in Austin.

Friendly staff, clean rooms. The room they put us in had an awesome view of downtown

It’s very spacious and clean. Quick check in and they give you free drinks for happy hour.

Great location. Very clean hotel. Friendly staff. Great hot breakfast even in the middle of covid, serves with covid precautions.

Very clean and nice hotel. The hotel is very open and interesting.

Nothing good spot would of loved to have a hot tub but it's all lovely place

It was good zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Great location. Enjoyed the easy access to the river trails and downtown

Front desk staff were friendly, welcoming, and checked me in quickly. I loved the free shuttle service. Nice selection of items for the breakfast buffet, and as a beer-lover, I appreciated the variety of craft beer options at the bar.
