My family of 5 stayed here over graduation weekend. I'm rating it 4 stars because it only faltered in one area (see below). We will definitely stay here when we come to Austin again.
Hotel: We had a great, spacious 2 bedroom/2 bath suite. Our room was clean, beds were comfortable, and it had everything we needed. The staff was very nice and helpful. They had a heated pool, full-size basketball court, and fire pit outside in a nice courtyard area with beautiful live oaks shading it.
Area: Austin traffic is always frustrating, but this hotel is in a great location being right off Mopac (Loop 1), which is a less-busy north/south route through Austin than I-35, and 183 which can get you across east/west if needed. Target is right down the street, and there are several restaurants in the area, too.
Cons: The only real con for us was that the hotel breakfast was not as good as other Staybridge's or other hotels in this class. They did have hot options each morning (eggs, sausage, french toast) and the typical bagels, bread, pastries, waffles, etc. However, the hotel was so busy this weekend and they were very low on everything and didn't have the breakfast area staffed well enough to keep things stocked and the trash cans were overflowing. Had the breakfast been better serviced, I'd have given it 5 stars.More
