    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent property, great value We used the property as a great location for a concert at Austin 360/Circuit of the Americas - The property was extremely well kept, wonderful experience and a great value June 12, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by really a home from home I would safely say this hotel was one of the friendliest we have stayed in. The staff were always available to help,from the receptionists to the ladies on the shuttle service. the kitchen staff were also very willing to help.the food was great,a very nice variety. the social evenings were a great bonus. overall a great experience from this hotel and my wife and i would certainly recommend it.

    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Austin Airport Very good experience. Room was very comfortable, felt like a small apartment. Staff really rocked the customer service. April 28, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by No service on weekends. We had an excellent stay here for four nights. I would caution you not to throw your towels on the floor on a Saturday or Sunday though. Despite what the guest services book says, there is no housekeeping on the weekends. Everything else was top notch ! April 3, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Evening Social is great The evening social is great because they serve beer and wine. There is typically a manager working the event so it's good to get to know the people running the show. February 12, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place and great people The people working at the Staybridge are the BEST! February 12, 2014
    Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible maintenance and amenities First room we checked in I found the door leading to the balcony broken. While on the phone with guest services, my roommate found a burnt cigarette on the floor in a non-smoking room. Left to go eat and when we returned the parking lot was full with no available parking. We noticed several construction vehicle taking up several parking spots with large trucks and trailers. Guest services made parking available across the street with no security guarantee. Workout room had several broken machines and the laundry room was in a mess with several broken machines. Breakfast area was not clean and several construction workers had occupied the tables with no room to sit. Overall the room was clean and the building was quiet. It appeared the maintenance was lacking and guest services did not keep large groups in check as to keep from taking over the building. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. February 2, 2014
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice quiet and close to everything. Excellent location. Enjoyed a short stay after dropping kids at winter retreat. Hotel is nice quiet and feels secluded, but is close to everything. Breakfast bar is excellent. Social evening reception looks great. Staff is great. Room cleanliness is top notch. Will stay again.

    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent place to stay The wife and I stayed here while visiting the grandchildren over Christmas. I booked the room online in advance. I don't always believe the pictures of the rooms on their website. However, the pictures were spot on. The room was a king 1 bedroom kitchenette. It was very comfortable and super clean. While we didn't prepare any meals at the hotel, the kitchen was well stocked with the neccessary pots, pans, plates, etc..They even provided paper towels and dish soap. The entire hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The only complaint I had was the selection of channels on the tv and the fact that they had a HD tv with analog channels so the picture wasn't the best. However, we didn't spend that much time in the room watching tv. We will definately stay at this hotel every time we come to Austin to visit the grandchildren. The free breakfast every morning saved us alot of money. It was the usual breakfast with nothing fancy but still better than going to a fastfood place. January 3, 2014
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good, but expected a bit more My husband and I stayed with our young daughter for 5 nights in 2 bedroom suite while visiting family over Christmas. I was a bit surprised that there was no distinction for being a IHG member. At our last IHG stay earlier this year at another hotel brand in the area, we were given a small bag with bottled water and snack at check in. Hotel was nice, breakfast had many options. However, the noise from planes from nearby airport were our morning alarm. Kitchenette was nice. No major complaints, just a bit disappointed that the place wasn't as welcoming as I had expected due to other reviews. For the amount we spent at the hotel, I just had higher expectations.

    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by displaced family, felt like home. My family of 5 was temporarily displaced after selling our house and waiting for our new home to be completed. After staying 6 nights, it was hard to say our goodbyes for we felt completely at home with the staff being our new neighbors. My three children stayed busy with all thre amenities and were comfortable with their new environment. We can't thank the management, staff and cleaning service enough for making our stay warming and enjoyable. December 24, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and nice rooms Everyting was excellent and the hotel was very near to the places were i want to visit. December 4, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No smoking with clean air I requested a non-smoking room and also on a floor without smokers. My request was granted!! No choking perfumes to cover up smokers either. It was wonderful clean air! Staff was very friendly. The breakfast and happy hour (evening meal) was all inclusive in your hotel rate - What a deal! December 1, 2013
    Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel Review The hotel was acceptable for our weekend stay. Nothing stood out either good or bad - just average. Breakfast was OK - similar to other hotels in this category. Dissappointed there was no roll away bed available for and extra person. Front desk staff was wonderful and very helpful.

    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location, Wonderful Stay This hotel was Fantastic. The location is so close to the airport and easy to get. The free social drinks and meal really impressed me during the week. I will highly recommend all IHG hotels should take this kind of service to their system as well. I have and will continue to refer people to stay here. November 15, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wonderful stay, great staff We typically stay at the Embassy Suites but this time I decided to try Staybridge. While Embassy' s hot made-to-order breakfast is the BEST EVER, I like Staybridge's rooms much better. I like the lay out and the bed is soooo comfortable. November 6, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent!! Every since this location opened, I been staying there every time I travel to Austin. I feel like it's my second home. The staff is very courteous and it has a great atmosphere. Their Breakfast is delicious, and every thing is very clean. Make sure you make your reservation with time, because they get full very quickly. Overall, I have have had a great experience!! :) November 4, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by More like a little apartment than a hotel room! I usually stay a t expensive resorts and this room was actually better than any of them! October 30, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Guest-friendly staff Our accommodations were A-1. We highly recommend this facility. All levels of staff that we interacted with went above and beyond to provide the best service. October 25, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Experience at Staybridge Austin Booked and stayed there recently with my family and was very impressed. The rooms were clean, the kitchenette was awesome, and the location was ideal. Not to mention the breakfast and easy parking. This choice was a WIN. October 9, 2013
    Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Everything great , small problem with breakfast Four people in my party, got to breakfast area approximately 8:30 on Wednesday. No clean metal forks, no clean plates and quantity of food very sparse. No one from staff appeared in area until approximately 9 AM. This is our second stay with you folks and everything except the above has been great. October 7, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to call home! Staying there for two months really seemed to go fast. The whole staff was excellent. I truly enjoyed my stay and hope to go back just to say hello to your staff, my friends. October 6, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent experience The room was clean -- very clean, which is most appreciated, and the little kitchen and fridge was wonderful. The socials in the evening were much enjoyed, as well as the good buffet breakfast in the mornings. Very friendly staff. Peace and quiet at night. September 30, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staybridge Austin - Airport Great place to stay for one night or a year like I did! Social hour is great and so is Haley!! September 26, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Experience This hotel was Fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpful. From the front desk to the breakfast lady that offered and made my waffle; all I witness was Excellent Customer Service. The free drinks and meal during the week was wonder. Although, I did see a roach which was gross, with all the people they acquire, I could not complain because the upkeep of the room and lounge area was very clean. As I was referred to this Hotel, I have and will continue to refer people to stay here. September 23, 2013
    Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good and bad Holly was amazing. That's where it ended. I asked for room service at 0830 in the morning and left. I had work to do when I returned and did not want to be disturbed. I told the girl working the desk and she jotted my room number down but never told room service. I came back at 11:00 am and my room still had not been serviced. The person in charge of the service staff said she never got word. The night before I asked the guy working the desk for an iron because mine didn't work. He said it would be 45 minuets before someone could get one to me. Nobody ever brought me another iron. I've stayed here numerous times. This far, the worst experience. September 21, 2013
    Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place No better place to stay in Austin than here. Couldn't ask for better service or staff. 2nd stay was better than the first. September 3, 2013
    Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and very clean. I'm used to usually staying at Marriott, but my husband and I decided to extend our vacation one more day and booked a room at the Staybridge. The cost was pretty reasonable and the room was nice. My only complaint is that the bed was so hard and the pillows on the bed were so tiny! My husband I slept terrible, but I guess after sleeping on a nice comfortable king size bed at a bed and breakfast in Fredericksburg anything will feel like a rock. We loved having the little kitchen and the breakfast they provided in the morning was great. The hotel is in close proximity to the air port but you won't hear airplanes all night. August 29, 2013
