The pluses of this hotel is that it is in a nice location for walking to downtown, it's right next to the bridge with the bats, and is close to the entrance of the lovely running trail along the river. The breakfast was great and the rooms are spacious. A few frustrating things about the hotel - the decor of...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

It's my first time to visit Austin but I will look nowhere else if I go back again. The hotel is located perfectly on the rim of downtown. You can basically walk to anywhere within 30 minutes. There is a direct bus (100) connecting the airport and hotel and the bus stop is right in front of main entrance. Oh,...

Stayed here for a wedding. Staff was lovely and shuttle very appreciated. Does not go to airport though. Super Shuttle was inexpensive. Rooms are a bit worn but comfortable. Beds were comfortable and rooms cleaned. Breakfast included and nicely done. The cocktail reception each night was nice. It was tough getting on wifi and you have to be a Hilton...

Overall the hotel worked very well for our group. Excellent service provided by all staff. Liked the breakfast and happy hour. Our room, although very nice, showed many areas of wear and tear. Proximity to University of Texas was a big plus. Short drive from airport. It would be nice if the hotel provided shuttle service to and from the...

We did a team meeting here, and the service was amazing, the location was awesome for walking everywhere downtown, and the business meeting team was perfect. I highly recommend this hotel. It has been remodeled. You can get to South Congress, or to 2nd/4th/6th Street very easily. All within walking distance.

The hotel is in a great location close to downtown and Soco area, all within walking distance. We had requested an upgrade to a two bedroom suite and was told there was none available. Another friend had come from San Antonio to visit and was able to book a two bedroom suite without a reservation. This made me feel like...

Room was more than sufficient. Wifi was iffy but it was dark and quiet in the overnight hours (I am an insomniac so that is important). Clean and spacious. Oh and the Long Island Tea was fabulous! Breakfast was good!

Stayed at the Congress Avenue Embassy Suites for a full week in May 2017 for OSCON. Now, while my hubby was at the conference, I visited colleagues at UT Austin Astronomy Department, but mostly I was stuck in the large suite with bronchitis. Every morning we went down for the complimentary breakfast which included the "made-to-order" omelette station. More often...

We were here for two nights. Unfortunately for me, I fell ill on the second day and spent most of my time in bed until we checked out. Lucky for me, it was at this property. The room was so comfortable and it really helped that it was a suite. My husband was able to sit in a separate room...
