This established downtown hotel, popular with business travelers, ushered in a few new much-needed updates in the past year. The highly acclaimed, Southwestern-inspired restaurant, Chavez, recently replaced a tired T.G.I.F. location, much to guests’ (and locals’) pleasure. And a newly renovated infinity pool and sun deck is chic. Many of the East Tower's two-room suites have gorgeous views of the lake or downtown. All rooms feature beds with adjustable Sleep Number mattresses. Congress Avenue, the hike-and-bike trail, and Sixth Street, are within walking distance.

Stayed here on business May 29 to June 2, 2013 - 4 nights. Was completely impressed with every aspect of the hotel. Details: - Special $139 rate was honored even though the booking agency dropped the reservation. The staff - Staff - every one of them - went out of their way to be friendly and helpful - Room was flawlessly designed and well furnished, every detail suited me - Restaurant on premises - TGI Friday - offered great morning breakfast
buffet at 6:30 (perfect for me) and delicious salad w/chicken breast for supper (low cal and delicious) - WiFi free and flawless I was so positively impressed I left the General Manager a hand written note -- something I've never done before. If I come back to Austin downtown, I'll be back at this hotel for sure!
