Fine place in convenient neighborhood but LOUD AC
Check-in was quick and easy, despite being earlier than usual (around 10:30 AM). Room was clean, comfortable, in good condition, and properly supplied with the usual stuff *plus earplugs*. The shower door was not quite vertical, but there wasn't much leakage, so okay. Had a great lunch at the famous Stubb's, just down the block from across the street. Then came breakfast, and also dinner. They're apparently in the midst of a big transition in the restaurant (Ladybird Kitchen + Bar), so there were some snafus, but nothing major, and all corrected pretty quickly. Just remember, it's Texas, so even the "small plates" are pretty big. ;-) Check-out was also quick and easy. Neighborhood is convenient for walking to downtown core and Capitol, trivial to 6th St, reasonable for waterfront. Immediate area seems a bit run-down though. On the downside, there is apparently some night music venue within easy earshot, hence the earplugs. Also, the HVAC fan is ridiculously loud. The first night, I used the earplugs, but that combo masked the alarm on my phone for several minutes. The second night, I put the fan on auto, and still used earplugs -- and when it came on, it woke me up. So I turned the HVAC off. Fine in a mild winter, maybe not so much in the height of summer.

Lovely hotel! Will stay here again!
This was a very clean and cool hotel! Updates/renovations have been made to this 6yr old property. We would definitely stay here again! Note: Valet parking is about the only way to go as the only self parking is around the block, not convenient.

Don't forget it's the Music Capitol
Stayed overnight so we could see a great show across the street. After our show, in our room, we could very plainly hear another show down the street until 2am. If that's a problem for you, best stay away from downtown Austin completely.

Good location but loud
Decent hotel with good location. but overpriced for the condition, did not get a chance to use the pool because of the limited hours. There were two music venues that were super loud until 2 AM at night

6/10 Good

Do NOT come here if you want food, server was overwhelmed with two tables, when help offered, he was beyond rude. Their ability to make food, serv food was horrible. I suspect lack of training, or in the wrong job. Front desk staff were great. I am not sure I would stay here if looking for a quiet room, unless facing the pool. After front desk staff, not much else to say. Oh, front door people were also friendly and helpful.
