Came to visit our son at UT/Austin with my parents and we were greeted at the get-go with genuine warmth. The hotel is very well run. Great staff. Spacious rooms. Most importantly, we were very comfortable in every aspect of our stay. And all at a fair price. Tough to beat.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Traveled to Austin over Spring Break to visit the capitol and museums. This hotel is a 10 minute walk to the capitol, and a 5 minute walk to the Bob Bullock Museum, so we never had to worry about driving and parking in downtown Austin- we just left the car in the hotel's secure parking garage which was so nice...

This exceeded our expectations, every thing was wonderful, we will make it a point to stay here again. It was close to everything we needed. The service was great, the free breakfasts were perfect and a large selection. Parking was good. The price was very fair.

You cannot ask for a better value for the location. You are right in the heart of Austin - within walking distance to all of the amazing areas the city has to offer. The rooms are spacious, clean - and the bed was incredibly comfortable with some of the softest sheets Ive had at any hotel room. There also is...

I expected the accommodations of a limited service hotel, but felt like I was in a full service Hilton hotel room. At first I was hesitant to book this hotel because of the higher price, but needed a hotel close to the Capital Building. The service and accommodations were outstanding, the cleanest hotel room I've ever been in. As a...

This hotel was awesome! The staff was exceptional and even upgraded us to a king suite for FREE! Will checked us in and was so great, the maids were super sweet, and even a man that I assume is a manager was nice at breakfast and asked us if we needed anything. The breakfast was good, make your own waffles,...

Extra $10 for the balcony was totally worth it! The staff was super friendly! (Forgot toothpaste, but staff had travel sizes) Very clean, very spacious, very comfortable. Great variety of breakfast choices.

Quiet location. Not really a lot going on up in this neighborhood, other than the university of course, so there weren't things right outside our door to do, but probably only a 20 minute walk at most to the downtown area and the quiet was nice. The free breakfast was plentiful, but not very good even by Hampton standards. The...

I agree, while we have a great location, central near all Austin has to offer, we are not in the middle of the wild, loud 6th street chaos. I understand some individuals want to be part...
