Convenient location, great room, comfortable bed, good restaurant for breakfast, nice bar. Would stay again! You can hear the music from sixth street on Friday nights-but you're in Austin right?
Bed Room service (quick) View Heater did not work they gave us a portable heater and could not fix the heater. The days we stayed were cold so the portable heater was used but really didnt like having to do that extra work have having to make sure to turn it off before heading out.
Great staff, location, and layout!! The shower was our only issue. The temperature was either scolding hot or ice cold. Made showering very uncomfortable.
Our shower flooded and my husband's side of the mattress had what seemed like a broken spring or hole that sank down very deep. Our mini fridge was warm, nothing inside was cold or even cool. The light was on but it wasn't working. The Internet was $9.99 a day and then it didn't even work! I called for help twice, the first time they transferred my call to an offsite wifi support line - not helpful. The second time they were very rude and said they would be sending up engineers. We waited for 1.5 hours before giving up as they never showed up. If you can't help us that would be one thing, but don't say you'll help and then not show up! We left the next morning for another hotel that didn't feel outdated and had better service, better mattresses, and free internet.
Good if you're traveling for business. Facilities are just okay.
Nice place. Great rooftop pool! Some things in this place didn't quite work as intended. However management was quick to resolve the issue.
The pool is nice, the service was good, the location is ok. Way too loud and I was told that I should have expected the noisy drunk people outside my door for 2 hours every morning when the bars let out because it's the weekend. I wouldn't stay here unless you like frat parties.
There was not much to like Hotel lobby was always like a ghost town and neigborhood crazy. Two people were shot dead while we were staying there during the 4th of July weekend. We were stuck in our rooms with no room service and were escorted out through the back doors to get out of the hotel. It was a horrifying experience for my pregnant wife and I to get woken up by gun shots and murders at 5AM and ruined the rest of our trip. We want our money back for this stay.
I enjoyed the scenery with all the extra amenities! We were grateful for not having to go out on the town and place ourselves in a precarious situation! The local restaurant and bar greatly satisfied our pleasures! The comfort and relaxing atmosphere of our room made it for a romantic night! We highly recommend your facility and plan to make more future stays at your location! Thank you for exceeding our expectations !
It was extremely loud with guests partying until all hours and loudness outside.
Miguel Dubose was very accommodating when I called needing to let my fiancé check in before I myself was able to arrive. Our cleaning lady was very friendly and when I asked for a fan for the room she made it happen. Our server Fransico was very personable and friendly. Hmmm where do I start? Pictures online associated with the Omni downtown are pretty deceiving. The television in our room had a terrible picture. None of the hdmi ports worked or would even register that anything had been plugged into them. The AC in our room was useless. The coldest the room would get was 74 degrees. The unit would allow you to go as low as 60 degrees but the room never got below 74 and that was at 2-4am by the time it would cool to 74. We couldn't sleep or was so hot in the room. I called the front desk twice and they told me they would send an engineer to access the problem. He never arrived. Once I asked our cleaning lady she brought me a small fan. But at that point something was better than nothing. We could hear the entire conversation of the guests in the room next to us. The mattress are quite firm. Not that big of a deal. But the fact of not being able to sleep due to being sweaty and sticky was very annoying. Not once did anyone ask us if we would like to move to a different room. Maybe one where the AC actually worked worth a flip. The safe in our room was malfunicationing and would not open. Spent ten minutes trying to get into our room safe to remove my belongings. We live in Dallas and have never had an issue at the omni Dallas. But I will say that I will not stay at the omni in Austin again!
No thing stand out Location, parking, service for the price, quality of breakfast/food was awful, gym was outdated Overall for the price you pay you can get much better hotel that this place
When we checked in there was a candy wrapper on floor, pieces of trash in closet and a small piece on bathroom floor. I had to call housekeeping to clean our room Saturday after 4:30 pm. They didn't wipe the tops of bedside tables that needed it. Parking service was a nightmare. Long wait times.
Rooms very average...In addition it was very noisy, could hear everything going on opening/closing of doors.. etc.
The location was awesome, the staff was super friendly and very accommodating, the room was clean and had an amazing view of downtown. Overall it was perfect for a couple of girlfriends and I to getaway and explore austin. One thing that I didn't like was that the pool was extremely crowded every day and night that we were there. There was barely room to get IN the pool (you were pretty much shoulder to shoulder in there) let alone find a chair to relax on because they were all taken. We were really excited about the pool too but turns out it wasn't so relaxing. That's my only complaint tho, this hotel was amazing so I can't blame everyone wanting to be there and to enjoy the pool as well.
The JW is centrally located to the Austin downtown area and many trendy restaurants and bars were within walking distance. In addition, the room, staff and on-site restaurants were excellent. When I spend that amount of money for a nightly accommodation, WiFi and Internet need to be a part of the package.
Very new and nice hotel. Very big hotel that has hundreds of people in the lobby at a given time. Never had a bad stay there and service is good. But always feel like I am a convention when I stay there.
I liked how friendly the staff was. The entire place is super clean and nice. Accessible to many great restaurants and 6th st. Also there's a lake only two blocks away! The only reason why I didn't give it a five stars rating is because the entrance to the parking lot is so busy. They only had one entrance and unless you valet you were waiting to get into the garage. On the upside the wait was less than 7 minutes. Also the pool bar needs more kore bartenders. The pool attendees were really nice once you flag them down for attention.
Great gym/workout facility Very comfortable room Love the full length windows and light Great location Charge $$$ for wifi Noise from the street was surprisingly loud, even on the 30th floor
Everything! Beautiful room, beautiful city, excellent location.
Everything was great Staff was very friendly and helpful Our room was awesome and so was the view. Definitely coming back !! Only a couple small things that I would have to say was the sink was plugged due to the little mount in the drain was disconnected, but they fixed it right away which was great !! And there was food left behind by the previous guests in our small fridge it's ok no biggie
The room was a nice size also great view The lights were dim in the room. Definitely needs better lighting.
Room was filthy when we first came in, beer bottle caps on the floor, bathroom amenities were all used half empty bottles ( lotions, shampoo and conditioner ).
Rooms were great better than average. Staff very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms didn't have fans and there was no fridge or microwave in room. Also thought parking was too expensive
Location was good. A walk to downtown and south congress. Tv was broken, couldn't watch it. The bathroom was old feeling. Not what you would expect for $300/night.
Beautiful hotel. Within walking distance to downtown, Lady Bird Johnson and Congress. We normally stay at another hotel on the lake but after a negative experience we chose to stay here. We will be booking here from now on.
Seemed very clean, friendly staff, great dining recommendations. Expected more for the price. Self park was not clear it was a charge until check out. Hotel drinks were pricey.
I was placed in a recently upgraded room. Fit and finish was very modern, very clean, and comfortable for my 5 night stay. Restaurant and room service was very good. The location of the hotel was great. Directly next to Congress St. Bridge (bat bridge), pretty cool If you get a chance to check it out. The hotel sits directly on the recreation trail circling Lady Bird Lake, this was a great place to go for a walk or run. A quick walk across the bridge also put you in the core of downtown with lots of restaurant choices, Austin city limits, etc. The workout facility was also very nice and open 24 hours/ day. Overall great hotel and would stay again. Only reccomedation would be to have the simple sundries store open 24 hrs./ Day providing acces to snacks , medicines, etc. this would be a nice convenience and seems viable that it could be staffed by one of the night desk attendants as it is located right at the front desk anyway. Other than that, great stay.
Great food menu with healthy choices. Friendly staff. Nice tall ceilings in room. Great location. Nice decor for the holidays.
Bed was amazing, architecture was beautiful, right in the heart of 6th street entertainment district Had issues with Valet parking service on two separate occasions. Normally I wouldn't mind, but when I have to pay for parking at a nightly rate then I expect service to match.
beautiful location in the middle of the city. Rooms are beautiful and very romantic.
Location on 6th street was unmatched, excellent service as should be expected The room i was in wasnt worth the price paid, even though location couldnt be better.
The hotel decor and ambiance is very nicely done, makes you feel like you are in the midst of royalty. The bed is very comfortable. The service is excellent, we needed a few extra things since my wife wanted to celebrate my birthday. The bakery downstairs made a real good cake. The location of the hotel is great, it is right in the middle of the nightlife of Austin and makes going bar hopping or clubbing that much easier, cant imagine a better location. The elevator floor tiles were duck taped on which was odd. The room is a little small by texas standards but ok by NY standards. There is a surprising number fo bums on the streets outside, just ignore them and be on your own way, if you are from NYC you'll be fine but even otherwise nothing to be alarmed of. A bit pricey.
We had a wonderful stay at the driskill. The staff was very helpful with suggestions on what to do in the area. We were staying for my birthday and web we arrived they had chocolate covered strawberries and champagne delivered to the room.
Had massive character and charm. Gorgeous lobby. Bar always always had a nice vibe. There was an old musty odor in the bar and lobby. Reminded me of an old basement. Parking was $40/day.
What a great stay! The staff was helpful and friendly from start to finish. It was like taking a step back in time without having to give up any modern conveniences. The price is worth all the little details.
The staff, at every level, were responsive and had amazing attitudes. Very well done.
I was expecting to be wowed at the four seasons, particularly given the price. I found the hotel to be nothing special. Everything was just ok. The staff was friendly, but then again, everyone in Austin is friendly. I could not believe they charged for wi-fi. That was really a cheap move. The spa was alright, small with not much atmosphere. The entire experience was just alright. I did feel a bit ripped off for the price. The are many hotels in the area for substantially less money with the same features. I would explore other options if I return.
Great service and wait staff N/a
Very friendly and professional hotel staff. Very timely room service. The Outdoor space on the river side of the hotel could be spruced up, but it's not bad.
The charm and the location. The bar was also fun and lively. Rooms were a little dated.
I attended a conference at this hotel, so the rate was much below market rate. I upgraded from a Cityview room to a Lakeview room. The two rooms are identical, the only difference is the view, so decide if the view is worth the extra. In my case, I thought it might be quieter facing the lake, and it gave me a fabulous view of the bridge where the famous Austin bats emerge each night. The room was attractive and comfortable. I liked that the small fridge in the room containing items you have to pay for could be emptied out and filled with my own items. Room service charges were exhorbitant: $ total for a salad with seared chicken on it, and the greens were not fresh by the time I got the meal. Outside of meals provided by the conference, I didn't eat at the hotel. Service was wonderful. One weird thing is that they don't put a book in your room acquainting you with the locations of all their services (pool, spa, ice machines, etc.) When I asked about it, the desk clerk immediately and cheerfully offered to escort me around the hotel showing me where everything was, which was nice, but not what I wanted. I loved the robe they provided, and the bath amenities were wonderful. Housecleaning staff were great, turndown service every night also good. They didn't have an option to re-use the towels, I wish they'd do that to save water. Speaking of which, the water pressure was insanely good. Can't imagine how much water they're using daily in a desert environment. Overall, I'd definitely stay there again, but not if I have to pay full freight myself.
My husband, two kids (5 years and 2 1/2 years old) and myself took a vacation to Austin, Texas for a couple of days and we decided to stay at the Four Seasons. Because there is construction going on City side of the hotel, we upgraded to a Lakeview Suite. The Lakeview suite was double the money and then some -- but we figured, Hey, we are on vacation and for that price, this has got to be luxurious. Well, I'm sorry to say that I was very disappointed with both the size and the look of the suite. It was much smaller than I anticipated and the furnishings were very basic. Just a basic pull out sofa -- no frills at all. The bathroom was very small and very plain looking. My husband and I have travelled a lot before and this room was most definitely not worth the price tag. That being said, everything else, and I mean everything, was superb. The service was incredible, everyone was polite and we were all treated like celebrities. Honestly, the staff is wonderful and made us all as comfortable as possible. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and the pool was very relaxing and there was plenty of room to sit and sun. I also got a massage at the spa and it was fantastic -- except the head rest was extremely uncomfortable on my forehead and gave me a tremendous headache for hours afterward. It kind of ruined the great massage. So, if you use the Spa -- tell the masseur about this. The staff were absolutely fantastic with our children and the hotel is very very kid friendly. My advice: do not waste your money on a suite -- just get a basic room. I wish we had.
Horrible stay overall given that this is supposed to be a 5 star hotel which it is NOT. It has one outdoor pool which is off the other side of the hotel and barely heated for our stay. Spa also terrible with no whirlpool, sauna. Only a small steam room in each locker room. Room and view were nice in downtown Austin, but that is about it. No tennis courts nor golf and only 3 or 4 spa treatment rooms. Gym area pointless with only a few treadmills and free weights. Will not stay again given price and lack of amenities. How is this 5 star??? not a typical four seasons for sure!!
I was somewhat disapointed in my stay at Four Seasons Austin. I expected it to be a wow hotel and it was just nice. Very expensive when there were lots of other good places nearby for less. the hotel charged for wi-fi, come on ! You could get it for free at coffee shops now. Cheap! Up graded to balcony room on river view side, you could only stand on balcony! No chair or table, no room for one! What was the point? Staff was friendly, everyone in Austin was friendly. room was clean, I expect that in a good hotel. Spa was okay, not very inviting, small bad view. I would not bother to stay here again. Not up to par with other Four Seasons I've been to, not worth the price.
The Four Seasons Austin is a magical place. The building and grounds are the best of the best. Austin is a beautiful city and the Four Seasons helped us to enjoy and experience this great city. We asked the Concierge what there was to do in Austin. He told us that he might be able to get us tickets to see Wicked. He did. The performance was sold out and was truely amazing. As great as the hotel was, the staff were even better. Why do we like the Four Seasons so much--because the staff provide a level of service that we experience no where else. My wife told me that they made her feel like the most important person in the world. We want to go back to Austin, to spend more time at the Four Seasons and to spend more time in this very special city.
Yes all of the above! This hotel goes above and beyond to meet your personal needs. Nope
Convenient toconference center, Staff helpful. Room comfortable, and spacious with pleasant view. Beds good Hotel startting to show signs of age so fixtures and fittings not up to date
Location, downtown Austin on the Lake, close to walking and jogging trails, close to restaurants and entertainment My suites were not available due to some booking issues through booking.com. Something about a credit card not being charged to hold the rooms. I was not notified by booking.com. Fortunately the hotel management found us two rooms, but they were not suites -- small rooms with a bed and couch.
Parking not included
great friendly staff in the very reasonably priced TGI Fridays bar (this was SXSW festival week) pity they didn't stay open later during the early part of SXSW week as they would have persuaded many older festival goers to make it back to the bar towards the end of the night! lots of noise from our room overlooking Chaves/ Congress junction could do with triple glazing on that side of the hotel
Perfect view of Town Lake. The city was within walking distance. The sleep number bed was a plus! The hotel did not have my reservation from Booking.com on their records. I had to print out my confirmation email from Booking.com in order to get my room.
The hotel was located in the center of the city. A walk to the conference center took only 5 minutes.
It has a great location, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the Starbucks and Friday's in the lounge were very convenient! It was about 20 blocks from Royal Memorial Stadium. I wish it were closer to the University.
The quality and comfort of the hotel and it's proximity to downtown
The RHS has one big asset. The location of the hotel is right on the "bat-bridge." Hotel is just three stars. Nice. Clean. Serviceable. Devoid of luxury.
The people were really nice and helpful I would have been great to know about the bat bridge and other things to do in Austin when checking in. Almost a poster or something to give more detail. Really liked the location and the staff was stellar!!
Wonderful view of town lake from this room. Great room size. The attached parking garage was a poor value and the hotel lets unauthorized persons take up the handicapped parking spaces.
Location, Starbucks for quick breakfast. Much too noisy. The single-pane windows do not protect from the traffic noise of Cesar Chavez, noisy trucks at 2:00am and heavy traffic until midnight. Noisy ice machines.
nice decoration, nice ambiance, good room, was standard double very noisy airconditioning, should really be improved
No problems with reservation. Location was superb. Concierge was delightful. Difficult to find in the dark. We found the room a bit small and not quite enough room in the bathroom. The water and/or the plumbing had an off-putting smell.
Location was great and the staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful.
In "nice" hotels like this, one oftentimes encounters staff workers that are acerbic and demeaning w/o realizing it because the culture of the environment encourages that behavior. The staff in this case was excellent and down to earth. They smiled and laughed when I joked around w/ them (and I am funny .... and cute!). Most notably was our concierge, "Chenisse Johns," OUTSTANDING!. She was so helpful w/ many of our questions whether giving us directions for local restaurants or providing us w/ an upgrade in our room - which we took advantage of on the last night of our stay! The rooms on the 16th floor were fantastic and grand. They were quiet, allowing us to really SLEEP & wake up refreshed. I definitely would stay here again. OH, it's right in the heart of downtown, thus one can walk anywhere from the hotel.
Good location, clean, quiet, air conditioned, restaurant attached, computer in lobby to print your boarding pass.
Everything except the valet parking (that service was good & prompt, though); self park would have been preferable. Staff-ALL staff-was excellent, highly competent & knowledgeable, courteous, professional and friendly. I believe that the SFA hotel staff could compare favorably with hotels ANYWHERE. Only indoor pool; outdoor pool would have been preferable. Would have rather had self-parking available than valet parking
Very nice hotel in a great location My room was very small for the price
Cleanliness, and friendly staff. Downtown location is great for exploring 6th st area. South Congress is a long walk (esp. in hot sun), but was still do-able. Parking at the hotel is $40 / night by valet. We ended up at a nearby garage @ $24 / night.
Terrible water pressure in the shower (On the top floor)
Can't beat the location. The staff were on top of it. Rooms were comfy and clean. All in all, I'd definitely stay again. Our room, 1927, was directly under the gym, and we could hear the dropping of weights. The pool area was a really nice rooftop pool but was super crowded- a little too small for a hotel this size.
The Westin is in a great location especially if you're thinking of partaking in Austin's nightlife. Accommodations were top-notch. Alessandra at the front desk was extremely helpful and polite.
Room was pretty much brand new. Staff was really nice. Location was great. It was a bit pricey, but that week all the hotels in Austin were priced high.
I loved everything about this hotel, from the valet to the hotel staff, great service all around.
Parking is 31 per night, then there is tax and tipping valet. Added about $90 to our 2 night stay.
the location and the pool the parking with the valet service is quite expensive
The staff and location were awesome! They double charged me for parking but fixed it immediately when I pointed it out.
- Free breakfast - Complementary Happy hour - Complementary Snacks/brown bags
I was able to book the room right before KW Mega Camp at a great rate. It's right next to the Convention center and close enough to 6th Street. It could have come with a fridge instead of having to request it and bottled water.
Location, Staff, and Comfy Expensive Valet.
Double charged me.
Helpful, friendly staff. Sundries shop open 24 hours. Housekeeping sometimes didn't supply enough shampoo for 2 people.
The staff is very courteous and welcoming. The location is great if you want to enjoy a night on the town without having to drive. The rooms look nice and were clean. Parking says $29 a day for guests (actually $37.89 after all fees). I was charged for valet parking, which I never used so I had to call and dispute it. There was a party going on down the hall which did not bother us, until we got a voicemail saying we were going to get kicked out if we get another noise complaint in the morning from management on the first night. We decided to stay away from the hotel for as long as possible to be safe. We asked for a specific room type. Just in case, called the hotel before we arrived to make sure it was ready. They confirmed everything was ready. Once we arrived, they put us in a different room than requested and said it was the best they could do.
Dried jelly on table next to bed, drug dealer down the hall way, family of 8 with kids running up and down hall at 10:30 pm, drunk drug addict passed out in in stairwell at 5:45 am.
The location is GREAT! Awesome walking distance to take in the sites.. The prices can be very expensive! Especially for it being a 2 star hotel. The young girl at the front desk when I checked in was a lil rude. If I paying $405 a night I expect a decent breakfast...not a muffin and coffee...
Big enough room, great location, and good parking. Smelt like cigarette smoke, the lights in the bathroom didn't work, room wasn't very clean and the walls are thin!
Location, location, location. Dirty Sixth was super accessible. The furniture was a bit dirty. The refrigerator, for example, was super filthy, like it hadn't been cleaned.
