This place is so pretty! We didn’t stay there, just walked around. It doesn’t take long to see the lobby and bar area. If you have time though, sit in the bar and have a cocktail. I literally felt like I was in the 1880’s.More

Recent renovations have buffed up the lobby. Love the location but parking is a problem. Valet parking or nothing. And the valet rate is $40 - a bit rich by Austin standards. Rooms are fine — comfortable mattress and nice linens. But the hotel charges...More

The hotel is nice, but lacked the attention to detail you normally find in this price range. Sheets were worn with holes in the pillowcase. Shampoos and body wash provided didn't lather. Was not the luxury hotel I was expecting Staff was very friendly though.More

We were at the bar and people was casual but elegant, not shorts or sandals... kind of like date night - I have to imagine that the restaurant for the hotel would be elegant as well.
