Best Place to stay in Austin, Texas.
We were impressed with our stay at Residence Inn - Austin. Initially a little difficult to find ( on Barbara Jordan Avenue turn right into Home Depot lot, Residence Inn is then on your right, directly across from Home Depot.) Close to everything, within minutes from EVERYTHING, including Rte. 35. Will DEFINITELY Be our “Go To” for lodging in Austin.

Great stay!
The room was great, better than I expected. Room was not crowded at all. AC/heater worked great. I always check rr before I unpack and it was spotless. The hot/cold breakfast was good! Loved the waffle maker! Only negative comment I have has nothing to do with the hotel, has to do with the construction by the nearest sucked!!!! Other than that I would definitely come back again and again!
