Great hotel in downtown Austin Mar 09, 2011
Great hotel in downtown Austin. It's on 8th street, so you're 2 blocks away from all the action on 6th street. Pool and hot tub on the roof. Workout facility. It's one of Austin's nicest hotels. Either 3.5 or 4 stars (depending on rating service).

I got it on Priceline for $130 a night the week before SxSW festival as the city was filling up.

Good and Central Apr 10, 2008
We stayed here while attending the Texas Hill Country Food and Wine Festival. I figured since we were going to spend so much time downtown, why not. It was a pretty nice hotel, but I think you can find better.

The price was pretty good, for a downtown Austin Hotel. The parking was rather expensive, but it was covered and secure, so I didn’t mind paying the price of $18 plus tax a day. We did end up getting the parking paid for because they were doing some renovations on the 6th floor and didn't tell us. We found out one morning at 7am. I went and talk to the Manager and he was very nice. Offered us a $30 credit for breakfast and paid the parking.

We ate at the Ancho’s restaurant in the glass atrium. Ancho’s specialized in southwestern cuisine. We had the quick breakfast, but the also serve lunch and dinner. On weekdays they feature a rotating luncheon buffets which isn't that bad. It is open Mon. – Fri. 6:30 am – 10 pm and Sat. – Sun. 7 am – 10 pm.

They have a heated rooftop pool, but beware, if you go up after posted close time, you will get locked up there. I had to call a friend on my cell phone, thank God I took it with me, to come and open the door. They do have internet, but to get it for free you have to sign up to be in this thing called the Select Guest Program, or you can pay the $9.95 a day plus tax.

For the most part it was a good stay and I will probably go back again next year.
