Love this hotel!

This is the second time to stay at this hotel (son goes to UT)...I will not stay anywhere else when I visit him. The bed is comfortable, the service is great, the lobby bar is very nice and enjoyable, the location is near campus, the rooms are clean and nice, coffee maker with my kind of cream...the buffet for breakfast is either $9.00 or $12.00, depending on which you select but when in Austin, go out for meals as there are so many great restaurants, so I am really not rating their food. The staff is very helpful asking if you need directions anywhere. Can't beat it!

Good price, good location, great bed!

The Sheraton Austin at the Capitol is a great hotel. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We arrived early and our room wasn't quite ready, so they moved us to the club level on the top floor for no extra charge. The room was very nice and inviting. The bed was awesome... slept like a baby! The only thing that could have made the room better would be the addition of a refrigerator.

Peace in Austin

It was a beautiful hotel in a prime location. THe only problem I had was there were a lot of teenagers at the hotel and then tended to be loud at night. The staff was friendly and the room was clean and comfortable.

Sheraton Austin

When I arrived at the Sheraton I was somewhat disappointed about the location of the hotel it was quite close to the Interstate and upon approach not scenic. But I was duly surprised. It was on the contrary located in one the most convenient spots for first time visitors to Austin. Walking distance to Capital and surrounding entertainment spots. The staffs were quite welcoming, pleasant and helpful. I was initially placed in a room facing the Interstate, I requested another with an alternate view and I was pleasantly surprised. My new room had a great view of downtown and the pool area. When I walked it the room was proper neat, smelled fresh and clean and had two bottles of water gratis. I have to say the price was quite reasonable for the location. I was truly impressed and they have a pretty decent Crab Cake if you should decide to get room service. I have stayed at the other hotel in that location and I have to say I would certainly return to Sheraton if the price remains reasonable.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Austin has multiple options for dining. I was in Austin on weekend on Saturday morning at Guadelaupe and 5th street they have the farmers Market and I had a blast trying out all the local vendors. We found some great organic food at great price (bring cash). Also we were looking for a place to have breakfast and by happenstance we came upon a lovely Spanish restaurant called La Condessa... I ordered Huevos Condesa and on gratis my server offered me this corn on the cob that had some sweet, spice and cheese...Oh it was quite delish and certainly an unexpected surprise and compliment to my meal...I have to say that was ace service, I would give them thumbs up on food, service and ambiance.

Awesome Austin

The sheraton was very close to all the action in Austin. A short walk to the Capitol Building, Bob Bullock Museum and 6th Street restaurants and bars.

Best location for the price

Best location for the price. Its a nice conference center hotel that is within walking distance of live music venues on Red River between 6th and 10th streets. Very convenient to walk to 6th Street and various downton destinations including the Capitol. If you self park, beware that you need a ticket from teh front desk that allows you to come and go as you please. Its very frustrating if the front desk fails to ask you whether you did valet or self park (which they did in my case).

Excellent Hotel Experience

Our stay was brief, just hours. We needed a room to freshen up after a day of work and traveling. My date and I had tickets to a concert and wanted to have a room to freshen up and dress for the concert. The staff at the front dest was awsome, polite, and pleasant. The room was awsome with a great view. We had a nice dinner in the hotel and it kicked off a wonderful evening for us. Unfortunately, we had to get back to our hometown as we both had to work the next day. I sure would have elected to say the night if we could have done so.
