    Location is all. However the parking garage looked over the lake. You would think the hotel would.

    Not worth $210.00 a night. The a/c was out the first night, The facet in bath was very loose and moved around the counter top, the microwave went out, The bathroom door knob was loose, and the floor stayed wet between the beds. ????

    Location. Period.

    Bathroom was tiny, toilet leaked. Pillows lumpy. Bait and switch pricing. Will you fix that? I doubt it. I booked at $168/night and was given a room at $249/night because Austin was busy. Can't wait to see my refund!

    Very good

    The bed was very comfortable. The front desk staff were friendly and seemed on the ball.

    The quality of the breakfast food was not good. Omelet ordered on day one with cheese and broccoli had oil running on the plate from fake cheese. The potatoes on the plate were saturated with some low grade oil and the omelet was tasteless. Breakfast buffet, day 2 and 3 -- all 3 of the bananas were old, dented and rotting. Presentation of hot food (runny scrambled eggs, low grade eggs) needs upgrading. The dining room was depressing. I was at a restaurant in another part of Austin that night and in conversation with the server there, I told her where I was staying. She spontaneously said, "That's a depressing place." At least I knew it wasn't just me. You really need to terse up that dining room with a Food & Beverage professional. It's not like you can walk to another option for breakfast in that location. / The wireless service did not work well at all -- in my room or in the lobby.

    The room was very nice and affordable. I am very familiar w/ Austin and knew that the holiday was located for the weekend we were hoping to enjoy. Being directly downtown and affordable and a good quality it meant all my needs.

    The parking tower lot spaces are a bit tiny. We drove my husand's small Toyota and it was still hard to manuver confidentally thru the parking sturtuce, but that was a minor thing.

    Location was OK (close to river which is a big plus for me) but not walking distance from downtown.

    1. Breakfast wasn't good. 2. Hotel was under construction, so all hotel facilities were temporary.

    Fabulous

    Very convenient and easy to find.

    The air freshener was overpowering upon arrival. It was very hard to breath for an asthmatic. We turned the air on high and was much better when we returned in a few hours.

    Good

    Rooms very comfortable and modern, loved the location, near the lakes and downtown. Staff very polite and helpful.

    Of course the renovations caused a lot of inconvenience. The pool was a big disappointment. They could do a lot with the grounds being at that location, maybe an outside cafe and bar. Had to watch the fireworks on the roof of the garage

    Superb

    A very nice hotel, currently under renovation, and in a great location - convenient to the airport, downtown, Rainey Street, and the Lady Bird Johnson Lake green areas. Very helpful free shuttle service to/from the airport, and also to the Austin Convention Center in the mornings. Very friendly, courteous and helpful staff and shuttle drivers, and well-appointed and comfortable rooms. Also a small but useful exercise facility on the first floor is a nice extra. I very much enjoyed my stay.

    The only (very) minor issues during my stay were that the hotel is currently undergoing a fairly major renovation, so it is just a little bit disordered on the main floor, and it would also be nice to have a small continental breakfast at lobby in the morning.

    The room

    If I stay here again, I would ask for a room with a full view of town lake. We had a view of IH35!
