The hotel is convenient located and walking distance to Rainey Street and Downtown. The staff were busy, very busy but friendly. The restaurant and bar was good. The room was clean and comfortable and the wifi was fast. I would stay here again if I was to return to Austin.

Hotel is located within walking distance of downtown. Terrific opportunities for unique dining. Easy Uber to 6th St for nightlife. Hotel is old but being remodeled. Lobby and restaurant are largely complete and done well. Rooms have been remodeled but still have issues that can not be changed easily. Rooms are small, shower heads are low, and bathrooms are small.... More

We stayed here for two nights and the hotel is great. Try to stay as high as possible and get a lake view.

The lobby, entrance, and hallways were all off limits when I visited this summer. The work looked good, but it sure made for some awkward coming and going.

This property appears to be in the middle of a significant re-modeling but there is a long way to go and there will still be issues when they finish.

Lobby and public areas have very recently been refurbished and look good. However, the work does highlight the rather shoddy guest rooms, lifts and corridors. And unless the refurb of the rooms includes triple- noise-reducing glazing, then the rooms to the front will still be plagued by traffic noise from the nearby highway.
