      A Must Stay In Austin

      The hotel was really beautiful, especially the lobby. The room was a little small but the furniture and ambience was elegant. Even the body soap was top tier. Front desk was polite and courteous.

      Rachel at the front desk was very professional. Hotel management should consider her for a promotion. She was professional, friendly and knowledgeable about local restaurants and attractions. Rodney at the front desk was also excellent who gave us a lot of good tips.

      Another good stay

      Had my second stay this year at this hotel last week. It’s a beautiful hotel, about a half mile to 2nd street and a mile to Rainey Street and right across the street from the Driskill. I didn’t swim but the pool was open and the fitness center was one of the best I’ve seen in a hotel— with an array of cardio machines, including a Peloton, all the usual upper body machines, free weights, kettle balls, medicine balls and yoga mats. They just need a place to get drinking water! The one big annoyance was that I could hear loud vehicles going down the street all night, over my white noise app — even on the 9th floor. I’m sure the windows are thinner because they’re original so I’m not sure how else they can combat that. Since they’re not stocking the mini bar due to COVID, you can use it as a fridge—which is a plus.
