10/10 Exceptional

It could not be better.
Third time here in the last 3 months-our kids and grandkids are in Austin. Every time we stay here, we like it better. This time we used the pool and the Revue restaurant for a late dinner. Food and service we great. I grabbed a cigar at Rules and Regs on evening and it was a gracious experience. Each of our 3 young grandkids stayed with us one night and the loved the breakfasts, afternoon snacks-what kid would not like that array of candy , and after dinner desserts at the Gold club. All the staff was more than accommodating to us and our young grandkids. This place is awesome.

This is top of the line
Awesome hotel, every works perfectly, staff is one of the best I have experienced. The Gold Experience was worth every penny , our grandkids loved the club room for breakfast and treats. I could go on but the best I can say is we made our reservation for our next trip to Austin before we checked out. Kudos to the Fairmont.

The friendliness of the staff, The only suggestion i will make is to have the chairs made quit in the Gold lounge We stayed in the room right below the lounge and where awaken each morning by folks dragging the chair on the floor to sit down, Felt stick on feet would really help.

4/10 Fair

Beds are not comfortable and the front desk was rude when leaving. Not a good experience. Based on the reviews I was excited but it turned out to be disappointing. Don’t ask for a late check out, won’t happen. I stay at hotels every weekend and I was not impressed with the overall experience.
