Sean and his staff are excellent. Whatever you need, they can help. Restaurant recommendations, directions to anywhere, room, breakfast or whatever other questions answered quickly. Terrific location in the center of everything. Walkable to museums, UT, restaurants. Courteous and knowledgeable people in every position at the hotel. I would definitely return.

Ambiance and Service could not be better! Every employee is friendly and they can not do enough to make certain that your stay is enjoyable. There is a beautiful pool and if you are a UT fan, you can walk to the stadium.

This hotel is conveniently located next to UT Austin and within walking distance or a short cab/fasten ride to all the hotspots downtown. It has a great complimentary real breakfast and the fact that you can bring your dog is a great plus. They even have doggie treats at the front desk. The rooms are huge with plenty of space...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay this past weekend while visiting my daughter for a Mom's weekend with her. I arrived a little early, but my room was ready and neat. A very nice note and snack bag was waiting for me in my room. The nice view of the Capitol was just what I asked for!!! I especially enjoyed having...

A very nice hotel with free breakfast and WiFi at great location between the University of Texas campus and the Texas State Capital. Parking is an added $21 per night. A very comfortable room with great TV.

Good location if you are going to a university function or to the capital building. Not many great restaurants immediately surrounding the hotel. Pillows were not great. I much preferred the Hampton Inn Downtown Austin.

A previous booking had not gone as planned, creating some definite frustration.

We stayed here for a college visit to University of Texas. The room was very small for four people. Barely enough room to walk around the end of beds and only one person at a time.
