Business travelers and some short-term leisure travelers patronize this five-story hotel in suburban, shopaholic Northwest Austin. Set just off I-35’s access road, the hotel is surprisingly quiet, with ample parking. Contemporary rooms were updated this year and have a mini-fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, flat-panel TV, and Sleep Number mattresses. Hearty breakfasts, with made-to-order omelets and eggs benedict, are served in the lobby lounge and outdoor patio. A full
bar and dinner service was recently introduced. The Domain shopping center (featuring fabulous dining options) is a short drive away.
