Overall Good

We had an OK time at the hotel. Good location but at edge of downtown area so a bit of a walk. Room was nice and clean with nice beds. Maid left dirty towels and didn't give us enough towels one day. Nickel and Dime you on the internet (~10 a day), Parking (16 a day) and if you want to order an in room movie it was a whopping $18. This is pretty typical of nicer hotels so overall I'd say it was a fine stay and would stay there again although if you want to be in the action more, something a little more central would be preferable, especially if you have a hard time walking a long distance

We had great dinners at Lambert's on 2nd street and Roaring Fork on Congress. The Old Pecan Cafe was nice for brunch.

Austin Getaway

Overall average. My hang-ups were on the parking $16 for self-parking/$26 for valet. And not having free internet and free breakfast. I have no problem paying for breakfast, but if what you serve is a continental breakfast, why I am I paying for what other 'lesser chains' provide for free?

Great Location, nice hotel.

Only negative was parking. You have to pay to park. An overnight parking pass sets you back $16. At night sometimes the parking sports were all packed.

Noisy

Rooms were nice, beds weren't up to Holiday Inn Express, and I listened to the elevators going up and down all night. Other than the fact it's an older hotel, it was OK.

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!

room

The room was clean, the bed was nice, the view was nice, but the a.c. was not good and the shower was a tub that would fill with water and you had to splash around as you showered... did not like that and when i asked for an other room they would not as i booked on line. The location was the best part of the stay.

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.
