were a bit beat up. Bathrooms are small. TVs are small. I'm spoiled, so honestly there is nothing wrong with the rooms! Beds and pillows were great, dark rooms to sleep in. Son loved the pool. Exercise room ok, but not great.

Great location for getting around Austin and SOCO. Easy to walk to many things. The made to order Omelets might be the best thing about this hotel ! Complimentary breakfast is ok- very basic food choices / nothing special and only a few fresh fruit choices. Hotel is over-priced during peak-demand times for what you get. This hotel looks old...

I stay at the Embassy Suites on Town Lake every year for the Capitol 10,000 10K. This hotel goes out of their way to accommodate the runners. It's right on the start line. The staff is great and I have never had a bad experience here.

This hotel gives you a ton of value. The free shuttle service is reason enough to book here. The corner Suite room was HUGE. Free breakfast was nice. Free Happy hour with with wine beer & mixed drinks. The Free happy hour snacks were pretty lame compared to other Embassy Suites, but...free. Lemon water in the lobby was great after...

The custom omelets are fabulous. The staff is always so helpful & the bartender is fun. The rooms are spacious. There is a door separating the king bed from the sofa bed in the living room but the door has to be opened to get to the bathroom.

Ideal location but needs facelift desperately. Excellent folks in the kitchen - good quality food and very approachable staff. However in the reception the staff can be more friendly and smile a little more. Giving toothpaste in plastic sachet is very poor taste & no mouth wash in the toilet? No bathrobe in the wardrobe?

We typically enjoy Embassy Suites hotels and try to stay in them when we travel as they are clean & have good size rooms for families. This hotel is in a great location - easily walkable to South Congress. That's about where the good ends.... Overall the hotel needs a major upgrade & cleaning. Bathrooms were grimy and dusty, furniture...

Nice and friendly staff. very willing to accommodate our needs. I'm a clean freak, so no hotel is ever clean enough. I always do a lysol wipe down when I arrive. This room was one of the cleaner rooms I've stayed in.
