The appeal of the property is its ability to incorporate Austin within the four walls though it exists outside the four walls. I am applaud by the attention of each staff member. The commitment to detail is a difference-maker. The GM, Sean, is a true hands-on operator and knows what brings people into the lobby. The location coupled with the...

Located at the southern boarder of the UT campus. Perfect for visiting kids in school, near downtown dining and entertainment, and best of all, its walking distance to DKR football stadium. Just outside the front door the tailgates begin. Approx 6 blocks of bbq, burgers and beer. Hotel was clean and on newer side. Secure self park, great ac and...

Dear dennisdallas2016, Thank you for your review on Tripadivsor. I was happy to see that you enjoyed our location and hotel. Yes, one of the great things about our location during football games is that you do not need to drive to tailgates or the game. We are close enough where it is about a 20 minute walk we are...

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The lobby was very well appointed as were the rooms. The breakfast buffet was excellent, much better than other free buffets I have seen. The rooftop pool and seating area had cool views of the city. They offered free Lone Star beer as a nice bonus as well.

i spend a LOT of time in hotels. The FREE breakfast is, by far, the best and most extensive I have ever encountered. The staff is incredibly courteous, the hotel is immaculate. Great lobby area. I highly recommend it

My room looked into an interior courtyard (I would say air shaft). And even that view was tiny because the windows were so narrow and covered with multiple layers of curtains. Everything about the room was a bit off. For example, it was huge, but not very useful. IWould be a perfect hotel if your plan was to stay out...

I was dropping my son off at UT. The location of this hotel only blocks from campus and his dorm, the parking (although there is an additional charge), and the quality of the rooms and staff make this my go-to place every time I visit.

I've been to many hotels, and this one is the best bang for buck if you value room size, big tv's and staff services as your most important criterion for booking. It is great value for what you get.
