I didn't have a view room but it had a comfortable bed and nice bathroom. The best part was the staff: I got in after midnight and manager Rachel let shuttle driver Aaron drive me to find take-out dinner. He first took me to a 24 hour Mexican place, but they were closed unexpectedly. We then stopped at Arandinas (also...

I stayed here for 2 nights with my wife on a a weekend trip to Austin. I'd say that the one truly exceptional thing about this hotel was the service. I'd give the hotel a 3.5 rating if I could, but I'm rounding up to 4 because of the service--everyone was really friendly and accommodating. The location was also a...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. We’re glad you enjoyed our property and location. I have to agree that Rainey Street is more laid back than 6th Street and it’s fortunate that it’s just a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. Many guests have positive comments on Austin’s newest entertainment district. You may be glad...

I needed a room for a couple nights while in for a convention. After web browsing and calling around, I chose Holiday Inn Town-Lake. The price and reviews were attractive. And it was blocks away from Austin Convention Center. Check in was easy and friendly, even as they had a lot of activity with check ins. Its when my own...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn on Town Lake at the beginning of this summer. The hotel was just OK. Priced way too high. Unfortunately, they have issues with their sewage ventilation and we were swamped with sewage smells all night. The building is very antiquated and probably needs knocked over and built again. I must say the location was...

I stayed her on business and got a large room with a view. Excellent staff and food. Free parking too. Pool overlooks the lake and you can watch the boats go by or walk the trail along the lake to the Congress Street Bridge and see the bats! Will return!

My wife, her mother and I stayed here last week and the staff and accommodations were all first class.

I stayed one night here in the Tower on the 12th floor with a view of the freeway. The windows seemed TOO thin to be so high... A "trip and fall" into the glass would NOT be something I would care to risk. Especially if I had children! The view was nice and although the windows seemed thin, I couldn't...

Thanks for the 4 star review. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay. The windows in the North Tower may be deceiving but they are indeed thick double paned glass that helps us reduce the exterior sound. That’s why you couldn’t hear the traffic. I can tell you that since they were installed, we’ve not lost one to breakage. Although we’re...

First of all, stayed 2 nights on labor day weekend. Great great location. Everything else not so much. Stayed in north tower overlooking freeway. On 12th floor. Rooms are like a pizza shape meaning they are huge towards the window but tight spaced towards the door. That included the restroom. Very small. Cleanliness of room was beyond superb.
