    The smoke alarm flashed all night long. Not extremely bright but bothered both of us initially when we were trying to fall asleep.

    Mainly the people. The staff to a person was very friendly and helpful at every turn. Yummy bed and spacious bathroom.

    The location was great, the facilities were OK, but quite frankly nothing special. We liked the atmosphere and casual vibe.

    The lighting in the room (#321) was bad. Very harsh, stark light or dark, especially in the bathroom. Tried to have breakfast, but told 20-25 minute wait even though numerous tables were empty. Didn't want to seat our party of 2 at a 4-top. Not the service we expected. More interested in 1st Thursday than actual hotel customers.

    Cool and Comfortable

    This hotel has an amazing design esthetic and uses high end finishes and products on the property and in the hotel rooms. The beds and linens were so incredibly comfortable I would have been happy hanging out in the room than braving the heat of a summer day in Austin. The valet was great and very easy to use. When were ready to pick up our car we would just send a text and the car would be ready within minutes. We never had to wait which was really nice. On the grounds of the hotel there were two restaurants, one of which served as room service, an excellent coffee shop and a few very nice boutiques.

    I had a great time and was very happy with our stay.
