Take a 5-7 minutes walking to some night clubs. It is quiet in the room but it's also easy if you wanna have some fun.

Business in Austin

The hotel is near to the state capital but 8 blocks from the convention center. That's not bad unless it is 104 degrees outside and you are wearing a suit. Next time, I will stay closer.

La Quinta at the Texas Capitol

Right at the crest of the hill above the State Capitol. The perfect stay for the budget minded. Not shiny or sparkling but utilitarian, great location, *very* friendly and helpful staff. and the included breakfast in the morning that the nearby Marriot lacks! At a much lower price. Hipster bars (& Stubbs) 4 blocks S and 3 bl E, upscale business/prof. bars & dining 5 blocks S and 5 W.

Business Trip/Pleasure

I did not realize this hotel was valet parking only. I prefer to have the option to valet or self park. Also the ac broke down at 3 in the morning it was 89 degrees outside and over 100 in the room. The hotel staff said we could move but we did not want to move at 3AM. They provided a fan. The ac was repaired the next day. The valet parking crew was great. The front desk was ok. 1 staffer in particular was not very friendly.

Convenient Location But ...

Highly convenient location to UT, State Capitol area. Valet only parking is inconvenient. Room was acceptable though carpets were filthy (recommend you not walk in stockings or bare feet). Some street noise from late night revelers. Overall, acceptable if you don't plan on spending much time in your hotel room.

great experience

First trip to Austin and this hotel was a great choice. It was within walking distance of all the fun stuff downtown. Had easy access to the Capital, shopping, dining, and nightlife. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.
