Reviewed yesterday NEW

Wonderful service in an historic hotel in a great location. This boutique hotel underwent a thorough renovation in about 2000 and is technologically up to date. They used very high quality materials and paid careful attention to details. However, some may consider the rooms small in comparison to newer hotel properties.

Located close to everything and the service at this hotel was fantastic. Our room was ready right away and the upgrade to the suite didn't hurt. The only downfall was the construction right next door.

Well done in nearly every area of measurement. Excellent staff. Attention to detail. Attentive. Anticipates the client's every need. Always polite and courteous. The bell staff was prepared for our group's arrival and ensured every guest's needs were met. Greeted them with bottles of water while they waited to check in at the front desk.

This hotel is for me the best downtown Austin, can walk to any location and have fun. Try the indoor pool, didn't see one better than this one. I highly recommend this hotel , the only issue is parking is very expensive .

A very convenient location near the capitol. The rooms are all very upscale and the staff seems eager to please and be helpful. The Roaring Fork restaurant is location off the lobby and has the best mac and cheese I have ever enjoyed. I'll definitely stay there again as I visit Austin.

Reminds me of the way hotels used to be: special, discreet, personal, tasteful. The first thing I noticed was the lack of huge splashy brand name at the entrance, in fact the best way to find it in the middle of downtown is to trust your GPS, when it says you're there, you are, entrance is on 7th. Valet quick...

The hotel is in a great location of downtown Austin, however the rooms are very small and for the cost there are much better choices throughout the downtown area. The rooms are very clean and updated, but again very small.

Great service. The staff went out of the way to make sure I heard the wakeup call when I did not answer the phone because I was in the shower. They made sure I did not miss my flight. The room was comfortable and well maintained.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Keeping it weird in style ever since we opened in 1924, thanks to the people of Austin who funded our construction! When we opened we were the tallest building in Austin at 10 stories tall. We have gotten a little taller, 15 stories currently, but the city has grown up around us over the years making us a hidden gem in the heart of downtown. We are located 1 block from 6th street, 3 blocks from the Capitol and walking distance to all the activities that make Austin the amazing city that it is. If you are looking for the true experience of Texas and Austin book a room with us. ... more   less
