Very Nice Stay and A Solid Breakfast
The front desk staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. I'd especially like to highlight Alisha. She was extremely positive and accommodated an unusual request from me, that I be allowed to use a color printer in their sales office (as the customer printer was OOO). She was also the driver for our ride in from the airport after 11 PM and her attitude and helpfulness were highlights of the stay. The one issue I'd call out is your WiFi. It was a little spotty from my 2nd floor room.

Austin weekend getaway
The hotel is in a good location for Raney Street and downtown area as well as the river. The traffic on 35 is annoying as it can be hard to get to the hotel during busy times of day. Also our room faced 35 so there was traffic noise. I liked that there was free parking so didn't need a valet to bring your car every time you go out. Overall it was a good choice for the money.

Hidden Gem
This really is a gem of a property. It's within walking distance to Rainey Street. It's clean, the beds our comfortable and our room had a view of the lake that was beautiful. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It's also very reasonable priced.
