Great Staff

The room was very small. The hotel needed some updating. The Staff was fantastic and we had to use the shuttle service ALOT. The shuttle service and staff were also fantastic. The bar was accommodating on playing our college games for us too. Very appreciated. Overall great stay.

Great location and helpful staff

We enjoyed our stay here very much. It was in a great location--right around the corner from Rainey St, and within walking distance to 6th St. The staff was friendly and helped us figure out the best places to eat and how to get there. The bar and restaurant areas felt comfortable and the staff was very welcoming. It is also very convenient that the hotel offers a shuttle service to downtown or to the airport! My only complaint is that the pool was closed for maintenance--it would have been a great view from the deck.

Holiday Inn in Austin

We enjoyed our stay here. The outdoor pool on the 6th floor was refreshing, and you have a great view up the Colorado River towards the Congress Street bridge where you can see the bats flying. Perfect for bat watchers that want a great spot. Close to great food, shopping and the capitol building.

Austin

Our stay was good. Navigating the two towers was a bit confusing at first but the staff was very friendly. Clean room. We walked to see the bats. Its about 15 minutes down a trail by the river.

The staff was friendly, and informative. The room was spacious, and clean. Service was good in restaurant, and bar. Didn't run air conditioning in hallways though. Room was cool, however.
