    Modern, high class hotel located just between the Convention center & 6th street. The conference facilities are well up to standards expected from a brand like Hilton.

    Nice hotel and it is near a lot of food/action. However, if you want quiet, beware as the noise from 6th street reaches all the way up to the 22nd floor.

    Incredibly nice hotel! Awesome scenic views from the rooms, great pizza, you really get the full "austin feel" in this hotel. And clutch location in downtown Austin!

    Best dog friendly hotel in Austin! 2 Dogs up to 75lbs per room allowed. Situated right next to a dog friendly park. Bell staff have treats. Kitchen has dog bowls. Excellent all around.

    Standard type hotel. Rooms are clean and the location is great. Tip: the water bottles are under the table in the front vestibule. I was dying of thirst until I found them on my way out.

    8th floor - Great gym facilities with Precor brand equipment! Pool (with bar and hot tub) is nice but typically small as downtown hotel pools often are.

    Take the airport flyer to downtown for $1 instead of renting a car and paying $30/day for parking. And walk a block north to convenience store to buy cheap beverages and beer. I just saved you $150+

    Great location if you are attending a convention. Or if you are trying to amass Hilton points. But there are more centrally located hotels with more character in Austin.

    Nice hotel. Nice staff. Wifi was really slow but I imagine it's just the result of an entire hotel filled w/an unusually high concentration of people up/downloading high bandwidth tech & music files.

    The hotel is undergoing a pretty substantial renovation as of early 2015. Be sure to ask for one of the rooms that's already done. Great bathrooms, lots of USB ports for charging.
