I loved the free breakfast. I strongly dislike that I had to pay for parking in the hotel lot for each nights stay AND THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH PARKING therefore, I had to park on the street one night but was still charged by the hotel.

Hi and thank you for your honest review, we would like to apologize for all the inconveniences you went though with our parking, we haven't got this busy since the pandemic happen, and with spring breakers driving to town, we have the tendency to have overflow parking. I know we have a drop off zone on 17th street, which is still technically still a pay parking spot. We hope you give us a second chance on your next trip to Austin.

When we first got to our room our shower was running and we couldn’t turn it off. We asked the staff to fix it while we went to dinner and when we got back it was still running with a note saying to “turn to the right”. Literally it ran the entire night.

Hello and thank you for your review, i appreciate you for the detail information about your stay, I am sorry to hear it was not a pleasant one and i hope you can give us a next shoot redemption when you are back in town.

It was nice enough, but the constant and excessively loud construction sounds were unnerving, not that the hotel could really do anything about that, it just shows you how thin the walls are. Just about everything felt cheap, I could feel the springs in the king-sized bed, the sink drain stunk really bad, the towels were very cheap and scratchy feeling and smelled way too strongly of chlorine. Not what I'd expect for what I paid, but I guess that's what you get trying to stay downtown in Austin. Would I stay again? No, I'll take my chances elsewhere in hopes for better conditions for sure.

Ice machine was not working on the floor I was staying on. The AC was slow and took forever to cool the room.
