Positive Reviews

Very good location

Most guests of this hotel have loved its location, as the property sits right in the heart of the action on South Congress Avenue on the outskirts of downtown Austin. There is plenty to do within walking distance, which guests appreciated while staying there.

Friendly staff members

Numerous guests of this property have reported that the staff is very friendly. These staff members ensured that guests enjoyed their time at the hotel, as they are accommodating and welcoming.

Great on-site bars

The majority of guests have had good things to say about the pool bar and the lobby bar at this hotel. Both of these bars get quite lively and provide an excellent atmosphere, so guests didn't have to venture out in order to enjoy their time in Austin.

Negative Reviews

Poor lighting

Past guests have mentioned that the lighting in the guest rooms isn't very good. This caused guests to wish that better lighting was available, as it was difficult to see what they were doing in their rooms once the sun had gone down for the night.

Strange window in the bathroom

Rooms at this property have a window between the shower and the main room, which guests found quite uncomfortable while showering. This was particularly uncomfortable for those sharing a room with their children or a friend because there was no privacy.

Nowhere to hang towels

There have been complaints about the fact that there aren't any hooks in the bathroom on which to hang a towel. Guests found this inconvenient because they had to throw their towels on the floor after finishing with them.
