  • Bed was excellent - Staff was professional - A bit hard to get in and out of
  • Room was beautiful - Piano room was a great place
  • Room was nicely sized - Restrooms adjacent to the foyer - Restaurant/bar are the cleanest in the area

    Excellent hotel, attention payed to all details. Exquisite. Breakfast, dinner, of very good quality, and also at affordable prices. I even do not represent myself a better hotel. Congratulations to the management.

    At the reception desk the lady was ice-cold. She made me somehow subliminally understand that the low rate I paid (165 usd) by reserving with Booked.net does not qualify me (in her eyes) as a regular visitor of the hotel; all other staff however very friendly, while remaining fully professional (that is why I gave maximum points for the hotel staff).

    Very comfortable, relaxing atmosphere, great local!!

    I thought it would be moe antique, it seemed to be a hodgepodge collectiion of furniture, the matress and linens, wonderful, the bath, very nice, the vineum piece at the end of the bed? Tacky. Awesome paint, ceiling detail, wonderful, cheap bathroom shelves, not so great.

    The friendlliness of the staff was exceptional.

    the rooms were too small. It was hard to find room to even unpack .

    The food was amazingly delicious, Every time!

    Over-rated. The lobby is fantastic, the people are Great, the Food is Perfect, the shower hot water was intoxicating, but, the room, ah ... over-rated ... the attention to details, like light coming thru the door at night ... from the sides ... Unsecure Internet service; why bother. Room next to the elevator way, Way too noisy.

    its right on 6th street and the hotel has a courtersy conceirge car that will drive you down to south congress for some shopping (or anywhere downtown for that matter). I stayed in one of the smaller rooms which was fine. The bed was huge, plenty of room to hang clothes and a functional bathroom so it had everything I needed.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and will be returning in January for a few nights. The staff were very friendly and the amenities were clean, beautiful and well maintained. The character and history of this hotel make it interesting and a unique experience, one I would highly recommend. I will be using this hotel for my future business trips to Austin.

    Hotel has a breathtakingly beautiful lobby, but the rooms are rather cramped.

    The hotel was antique-hip (it's a historic landmark) and well located for city life (nightlife, theater, arts, riverfront). The lounge seemed well-equipped and well-used. The staff were excellent: attentive, very helpful and courteous. The room was small but clean and well-decorated; it had a lot more character than a chain hotel does. Free WiFi worked seamlessly. Wonderful robes and towels.

    The hotel wasn't perfect for my business needs. I had trouble keeping plugs securely in the sockets to charge my gear. The mattress needed turning or replacing; it sagged so badly in the middle that I slept crosswise. The bathroom had nowhere to put my makeup kit other than on the toilet. In-room water cost $6 a bottle. Valet parking (the only option) was an additional $26/day, something to keep in mind when making your reservation. Also, not the hotel's fault, but being in a lively area made it noisier and harder to get work done. I arrived on Halloween, and discovered that the hotel was smack-dab in the center of a major street party. Next morning, a rappelling event down the tall building outside my window was loud while I was working.

    The friendliest place I've ever stayed.

    Nothing. I would not stay there or recommend it.

    Very poor value. Expensive for a Class D motel!

  • Older travelers

    The architecture was wonderful and the location was perfect for seeing downtown Austin

    The feather pillows/comforter triggered a lot of allergy symptoms and smelled musty

  • Older travelers

    The room, the service, the decor, the bar, the restaurant. The staff was very friendly, and the service was good

    Paid for "street view" room, but got a room with a view of a run down roof top.

  • Couple
    10.0

    Everything. The concierge was extremely helpful, the valet was prompt and extremely polite, and the rest of the hotel staff was great. The room was extremely nice and was a good size. Slept like a baby on the bed and the shower was amazing (great water pressure and neat shower head and faucet). The hotel has a lot of character and is is located in a perfect spot right on 6th street.

    The only negative was that the bathroom was small relative to the overall size of the room (i.e. it was crammed and hard to maneuver with two people).
