There was a Conference going on at another large hotel across IH 35, but HI, HI Express, Candlewood Suites, Indigo, Crowne Plaza, Intercontinental, and most other IHG properties are my first choice.
Sure, if I booked far enough in advance I could have stayed at the Headquarters designated hotel, but they were long since overbooked. I booked my room about a few days in advance, check in was fast and easy, we had an awesome room with a view of the Austin Skyline. we were in Rm. 820. I will request this room again, should I attend another Organizational event in February.Sleeping was very nice, and comfy, Complimentary Breakfast was more than I expected, dining room wait staff were very nice and offered us Coffee to Go.
Having the in room refrigerator was a nice amenity, but wasn't able to locate a microwave. Furnishings were nice and comfortable, also made it easy to relax with that little table that moves around the couch. There were some noticeable stains in front to the TV Cabinet and Microwave area. [Less]
