The hotel is well located for the University and the capital. They have a very complete complimentary breakfast each morning. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a room in this area. The staff was friendly and helpful and we received an upgrade when we arrived

I unexpectedly needed to get a room and luckily, there were rooms available. The staff were extremely friendly and warm. I got upgraded to a suite overlooking the pool. Walking to the room, I noticed the hallways were well lit and clean. The room and the television were huge. The room was clean and I didn't hear any noise outside...

Great stay at a clean hotel, with courteous staff. I had reserved a balcony room, however upon arrival there were none available. The host promptly provided a suite, at a reduced rate. Excellent customer service. Location is excellent for UT and the TX capitol.

Start to finish the staff was courteous and very enthusiastic about supporting my visit. Worked an early check-in when I arrived early. Rooms were very, very clean and I enjoyed the fitness center and breakfast - all top quality. Good location to work in the Capital or with Gov agencies
