I stayed at the Highlander for SXSW. It worked out really well. They have Car2Go right in the parking lot. If you're traveling to Austin and want a quick cheap way to get around, I'd recommend Car2Go. Make sure you download the app a couple days ahead of time so they have time to clear your drivers license. The hotel...

This obviously newly renovated hotel has a great staff (we loved Q and Vanessa especially!), is clean, and the beds are super comfortable. It was a great location for our purposes in Austin. Would highly recommend and definitely stay again.

I stayed at the Highlander hotel for 4 nights while visiting my boyfriend in Austin. As the other reviews and photos state, there ARE pink sheep everywhere. I loved it. My room was clean, my bathroom was clean and it was very quiet. The breakfast was yummy. They had mini breakfast burritos, yogurt, bagels, muffins, yogurt, cereal, etc. The staff...

We came here to celebrate my friend's birthday. First off - love the colors and the sheep. That was a neat touch. The rooms are your basic hotel rooms in terms of amenities, and you can go to the desk if you need a toothbrush or any other little thing you've forgotten. Now, here's the bummer part: the restrooms aren't...

such a fun place to stay! breakfast was awesome, not the typical hotel breakfast! great for young adults who are in Austin for fun, but still quiet enough for if you happen to be in town with family or for business! our neighbors did get a little rowdy at one point but we didn't really mind.

Let me just start by saying I have never written a review, good or bad, for anything ever. And like all of us, I have had some bad experiences. The attitude of the staff here has really stuck with me in a bad way which has led me to do my first review of anything ever. The pink sheep are...

We had a pre-paid reservation at this hotel. When we arrived after a late night three hour drive, we were told our reservations would not be honored because we made it through a third party (Priceline -- wonderful experience with them, by the way). We would not have known about the hotel without the third party service. Priceline helped us,...
