    Beautiful lobby but rooms falling apart. Nicks and scratches and just feels old. No water glasses provided in room. Took three calls to get a Housekeeping request.

    A true historic gem, right in the middle of downtown Austin. Be sure to inspect the statues and artwork closely.

    They say this lovely Texas landmark is haunted. Me? I don’t believe in ghosts, and I had a lengthy debate about this very topic with a rather opaque visitor one autumn night in room 319.

    Perfect for wedding receptions, company parties, or just brunch on a Sunday morning. The best thing about this place? Word has it that Room 429 (amongst others) is haunted!
