Editorial review:

Hilton Austin receives rave reviews for its great views of the city, coffee bar in the lobby with free wireless internet access and small pool on the rooftop. Others felt that the service was hit-or-miss, the rooms were average, and the atmosphere was too corporate.

                • Older travelers

                  We were woken up at 4:15 by very loud neighbors & were treated very rudely by the front desk when we called to complain (after we were informed at check-in to call if there was any noise).

                • Family with children

                  Comfortable beds, plenty of elevators.

                  Pricey & although I paid in advance for parking in the garage, when my family came back from dinner the second night, we were told the parking garage was full. We had to pay to park much further away.

                • Family with children

                  Location and proximity to 6th Street and Congress was a plus. Staff were very friendly. Rooms were clean and spacious.

                  Having rooms on the Executive Floor afforded access to the Executive Lounge however hot food at breakfast would have been a nice touch. The lobby bar/lounge was rather large and uninviting.

                • Older travelers

                  Very close to sixth street and convenient if you want to go out for a night on the town. Beds and rooms were very clean. Would def recommend to anyone or stay there again.

                  The staff at the front desk were very helpful and always willing to assist with any questions we had and always seemed genuinely happy to help. We also arrived at the hotel early and were able to check in early which was much appreciated and a welcomed surprise.

                  I would happily recommend Hilton Austin, We had a very enjoyable stay and should I return to Austin I would be a return customer

                  We loved our room, the spa, the location and great staff.

                  Housekeeping left a lot to be desired. Some dishes remained in our room for several dyas.

                  Lots of amenities. Location.

                  The hotel bar. They served the most disgusting water I have ever tasted and when my husband pointed out a roach on the bar to the bartender the bartender just flicked it away. Makes you nervous about what else goes on there. Gross!!

                  Very nice - really enjoyed my stay!

                  Executive level was not worth the extra money. They need to upgrade the service there and the food. With the extra charge they should provide free beer and wine and alcoholic drinks a a reduced charge.

                  The staff was very accomodating and treated us well. Everything was clean, and the price was reasonable.

                  The only thing I didn't enjoy was the pool having plastic cups and other debris floating in it, and it was crowded to the point that we mostly had to sit on the edge with our feet in it.

                  I liked how I felt safe that we had to use our room key to enter and exit Hotel

                  They wanted to charge us a higher rate than booked through Booked.net, but after some discussion, they finally agreed to give us the initial rate!
