Radisson Hotel & Suites Austin-Downtown

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Always our preference of stay every time we come to Austin. So convenient to all of the hot spots and we love that it's only a few minutes away from trails and kayaking. The stay is beyond outstanding!!!!!

This hotel was in a great location for the viewing of the bats taking flight in Austin

I stayed on the 8th floor and had a fantastic view of the Austin Bat Bridge. Also great pool in hotel and nice park by the river. In addition the staff was friendly and very helpful. Easily 5 stars from me.

Beautiful views of Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin. Staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is older but the rooms have been updated in recent years and were bright, airy and clean. I recommend a lake view as the back of the hotel looks over Congress Avenue South and Lady Bird Lake. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance.

I mentioned multiple times how grateful I was that we decided to stay at this Radisson location. We decided to stay downtown to be close to restaurants and everything, but we found ourselves spending the most time around South Congress and South First Street - not too far to walk! We LOVED staying right off the greenbelt and I was so happy that our room overlooked the Congress St. Bridge (the bats were far and away my favorite part of Austin. Nature is crazy!). We had no problem getting rides using the rideshare app as there were plenty of folks driving around the area. While the location was most important to me, the room was very comfortable and clean. The pool was so perfect, too. The staff were all very kind, helpful and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again for a future visit.

Great value and awesome location. A fun way to experience austin

Pros: Great location, clean, and comfortable. Cons: Wifi is terrible and slow

Easy access , free parking, free wifi. Friendly, professional staff; walking distance to good restaurants, entertainment, lake. very nice property

The hotel was in a great area, just at the edge of Congress street where the hustle and bustle of the downtown area is. Very close to restaurants, bars, shopping, and the capitol. I did not have to take a taxi anywhere. Also very easy to get to from the hotel, I took the bus and it dropped me right by the hotel. The room was nice, but a little dirty (hair, stained walls), but overall pretty comfortable.

Friendly staff. Comfortable bed. Clean. Convenient to downtown Austin sights and activities. Park and walk. We had VIP status, so the parking was complimentary. Ask about that when you book.

There are two things that make this hotel a top choice - the staff and the location. The staff are all really friendly, helpful and fun - some of the nicest people I met during my entire trip. The hotel itself is a little dated in appearance - but the rooms are comfortable, good size and all you really need.

The description was room with a view of the river; most of the view was the top of a building and industrial fans.

I was in town for NYE, so really only needed a place to stay for the night. The room was clean and tidy and everything that was described was there in nice condition. The only thing that could be improved was adding a couch to the room. Other than that, it was a really nice stay.

Awesome Location!!!!! Able to walk everywhere. Staff was very friendly

Great place to stay. A little pricy for the room that I had but the hotel is in a good location and the staf is great I give the an A.

Its kind of an old Hotel nothing special about it.

The hotel is located near all the downtown places one likes to stroll on foot. Near great restaurants, the bridge from which the bats fly, SoCo, etc. Not cheap.

I don't like when the sink is not outside the bathroom. I hate the sleep number bed. The pool was beautiful.

This hotel is nicely situated along the Lady Bird Lake and the Congress Ave Bridge as well as within walking distance to all the other attractions on W. 6th and ACL. Although the room is a bit dated, they do offer a Sleep Number bed which was nice and comfy. It's a good value and I would stay there again.
