Barton Creek Resort & Spa Review

Fortune 1000 execs and groups galore flock to this resort on 4,000 acres of prime Hill Country acreage in a tony area west of Austin. Among the many top-resort amenities are four championship golf courses (two rated among Texas's best), 11 tennis courts, a spa with salon services, and a huge fitness center. Major 2007 and 2008 renovations considerably improved formerly dowdy interiors, but old-money luxury remains the theme. Standard rooms have one king- or two queen-size beds, 1½ baths, a radio with iPod docking station, a 42-inch flat-screen TV, and a well-stocked minibar. Many have panoramic views of the countryside. Downtown is a 15-minute drive outside of rush hour. All rooms are no-smoking.

    Disappointing

    We were expecting a top-flight hotel and a great experience and were disappointed in almost all respects. The rooms are dark and dreary and clearly in need of a major redo. When we sought relief at the pool,instead of peace and quiet we were blasted by a DJ playing rap music! And then the valet could not find our car on two separate occasions. We were happy to check out.
