The good, the bad, the ugly

The Hotel was great, and so was the location. The restaurants were pricey, but delicious. But the Valet parking was the worst. They scratched up my car on the drivers side. Then they tried to cover it up with a red sharpie! I brought it to their attention and wrote a police report. I am still in contact with them, and they still have yet to pay for $1,500 in damages! I am furious!

Disappointing getaway

The atmosphere was too cold. The staff lacked personality. My husband and I were celebrating our 5yr anniversary and probably should have chosen another place to stay with a more "romantic" atmosphere.

Overnight stay

Hi, we came to sign some business papers and see a few sights. This hotel was very close to the business office which was very convenience. The room was clean, but I was disappointed at how small and plain the room was. I've rented more impressive rooms for a third of the price. The lobby was very nice, but I didn't sleep in the lobby.

Good Location

Everything was good about this hotel except for the HUGE cockroach in the bathroom that almost gave me a heart attack. Management did allow me to change rooms and gave my family and I free breakfast that morning which was nice. Valet and self parking rates are ridiculous but I guess that's expected for that area. Also make sure you check your checkout receipt, I was overcharged for some things. Oh the pool area is very small compared to the picture, and only about 3ft, the picture online makes it look huge. Overall the hotel was nice, and the staff was great and attentive.

Weired Hotel

Weird sums it up. When you arrive, your not sure your at a hotel. There was no valet or bell staff present. I had to go to the second floor to find the front desk and any staff. Most days I could not find a valet. I asked the front desk for change for $5 bill and they were worried they could not handle that request. 10 mins later they wrangled up 5 $1's. No mini bar. Soda/watrer machines on the other side of the building. For the price, this hotel was a total rip off! Very nice building and decent rooms. Small bathroom.

Accitental Discovery...

Not one hotel in all of downtown Austin had a single room available this weekend; proms, end of school balls, etc, I guess. I was about to give up when I search one final time and up popped one room at the AT&T Executive Education & Conference Center Hotel. The name was a little lame, but I booked it nonetheless. Found it easily, right on the edge of UT campus. Valet parking was fast and efficient. From car to the room in 5 minutes. Room was very nice. Immediately went to take a nap, but there were some some brownish coffee-like stains on the sheets. Called down and in 3 minutes a team of two were changing the bedding. Walked from the hotel to our reunion in West Campus area. Slept great that night, and checked out the next morning without any hassle whatsoever. For the price, I'd stay there again for sure, especially if I was going to be visiting a kid who's at school at UT.

Walk a few blocks down Guadelupe over to 24th, and go west into the West Campus area for a late dinner. Many places are open late into the night... like 4am.
