I recently stayed in Austin at this hotel and was there for 2 nights. The room smelled faintly of smoke when I walked in but seemed to lessen, so I didn't mention it to any staff. I spent part of the day working in my room and so no one cleaned it, but when I left for dinner, I mentioned...

Thank you for taking the time to relay your observations. We certainly regret that your stay was not up to our standards. We are a 100% non smoking hotel per Austin city ordinances and charge a hefty cleaning fee if a guest smokes in a guest room. Unfortunately, some guests still choose to violate these policies. As with most hotels,...

3 day trip to see my daughter's cyclo cross bike team competition. I chose this hotel because this is where the team stayed. I made my reservation 3 weeks in advance and was surprised when the entire stay was immediately charged to my credit card. When I checked in I had to allow another 60.00 charge for potential incidentals. Building...

Thank you for the concise and positive review. We work hard to provide every guest with the same facilities and service you enjoyed during your stay. Rainey Street is indeed a short 5 minute walk from our front door and has really blossomed into a major entertainment district.

Lots of pros and cons to this place. Pros - got a good deal using Hotwire. Staff was very friendly from front desk to wait staff. Great location: just off of highway, about 20 minutes from airport (although a little funky to get to at first), right next to Town Lake Trail and Rainey Street. Room was clean. Plenty of...

We had a room with wonderful view of the lake/river in the south tower. The beds were good and everything worked - except that the heating in our room was quite noisy the first night.

We do indeed have some wonderful views from both towers. Our location provides easy access to all that Austin has to offer. It’s about a 15 minute walk down the hike and bike trail to downtown and roughly the same if you go directly north and down Rainey Street.

Stayed one night while travelling through Texas with our Texan friends. The hotel was ideal for our stop handy to find. The staff gave our party adjacent rooms our room was close to the elevator but the noise didn't bother us after we had a night out on Sixth Street we slept well.

Good location, just step outdoors and you are able to start a walk in a good walking trail alongside water. After the walk, you can enjoy a rich breakfast in the well managed restaurant of the hotel. The staff is friendly, the room was clean with a nice view of the lake

Thank you for the great review. The Butler Hike and Bike Trail is indeed a pleasant place to take a morning walk. At 10.1 miles is encircles Lady Bird Lake on all sides. Also recently added is an elevated boardwalk along the south shore near the hotel. Come back and join us again soon.
