QUESTION: Why would you stay anywhere else in Downtown Austin? ANSWER: You wouldn't! Excellent location with wonderful staff, timeless and historical charm. Make sure to enjoy the lounge/bar area for the food, drinks, art, music and characters who hangout.

We were at the bar and people was casual but elegant, not shorts or sandals... kind of like date night - I have to imagine that the restaurant for the hotel would be elegant as well.
