8/10 Very good

Really nice stay. Location is pretty good for the university area just blocks from the capitol. The hotel is pretty new so rooms and social areas are all very nice. This is a design hotel so very different to most other chains. Only issue is parking is expensive. Other than that, really good choice.

6/10 Good

I went with my friend for a little girls trip. Don’t get me wrong, the place was nice for what it’s worth and some staffs were nice, but the issue was that this place false advertised the pool shared with another connecting hotel that’s intertwined within the facility. (AC and Otis) The pool is owned by Otis, not AC, AC members aren’t allowed to use the pool, but are able to access the outside bar that is next to the pool? Which didn’t make sense and Everything else about AC also shares with their dinning room for food. The only separate amenity they had to offer was a gym. The false advertising is even on the website even descriptions as “AC Austin Hotel pool” which is not even true. We also had an issue with communication, even after asking when the pool would be open to us, they never said anything about having to pay and extra $30 just to have an “outside membership” to use the pool. Until we got there and had to be told we weren’t allow, which is frustrating. Another thing, is the parking garage, it stinks, it has a sewage like smell that you don’t really get used to when going down to get your car. Besides this, everyday, they houseclean your room when ur away and give fresh new towels and bedsheets. And again the hotel architecture was fairly new, eye appealing, and clean.
