The service, location and breakfast were the best!!
The parking was very expensive $30 and sadly there was many, many homeless people outside of the hotel.
Big pool, and close to the University of Texas Campus and 6th Street
Would have been nice for the pool bar and its television to have been on to enjoy what was a beautiful day.
Convenient Clean rooms (but excessive use of bleach)
Location (next to homeless shelter) / not a safe Neighborhood Bleach smell throughout the hotel Breakfast on carton plates and plastic cutlery?!
I downloaded a blacklight app on my phone to check the bed sheets and they were clean! Facility was very clean all the way around and the breakfast was decent.
We paid to park in the garage and it was extremely confusing getting from the garage to our hotel floor, because there was another hotel who used the same garage. There were no signs to help indicate where to go, so we ended up in the other hotel. Staff were not very specific in giving direction about it, so it took us wandering around for half an hour to figure it out for ourselves.
Lovely staff fantastic room clean hotel with excellent breakfast great for all attractions
