    There was a conference going on, and the folks were awful friendly. Felt very welcoming. Can't say the same about the front desk, though. :/

    A nice, pretty standard business hotel. It is what you would expect from a large Hilton - clean, comfortable rooms, central location, and very little in the way of charm or personality. If you are here for work or are not planning on spending much time in the hotel, this is fine. If you are there for vacation and are looking for something more memorable, there are more exciting options in town.

    Great location if you are here for a conference or on business. Hotel is clean and comfortable, service is okay. Restaurants and bars are all walkable but the hotel itself is off of the main drag which is nice.

    The Hilton Austin is one of the largest hotel options in downtown austin. It serves the Austin Convention Center quite a bit, but can get booked up very quickly if there is an event going on. The hotel is a great location for convention events and for people that want to explore the east side more. The rooms are standard, nothing exceptional. They have a really nice club lounge to use if you choose for an upgraded room or if you have status. The hotel is really close to a handful of restaurant options like fogo de chao.

    This is perfect for business travelers because it is convenient to downtown and since it is one of the largest hotels downtown, there is usually good availability.

    Guests have access to the Tower Health Club. Awesome location downtown. Best bang for your buck as far as chains hotels go.

    Yeah, it's huge and gets crowded for conferences, but a good location in downtown austin, and a fun place to go when you're burnt out from a night of partying

    As with a lot of people, my first visit to Austin was for SXSW. I stayed at the Hilton, which was perfect location-wise as it is right next to the convention center and hosts a # of events. The hotel itself was nothing fancy and there was nothing that stood out overall. So no rave reviews, but I'd definitely stay here again.

    Great hotel and location, but lacking in personality. Seemed very different than typical Austin culture. We had a nice room on the higher floors and access to the Executive Lounge for breakfast in the morning and appetizers from 5-7 PM. The appetizers were very tasty and a nice surprise. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly, and quick to attend to any need.

    Decent hotel - nothing fancy or exceptional. Rooms are comfortable - even the standard rooms have a couch and small sitting area. The location is a little more on the outer edge of downtown, but there are plenty of good restaurants in walking distance. Service at the valet is a little lacking but the people at the front desk are very efficient and on top of things.

    The cavernous lobby, with long escalators to the left and a large, in-wall waterfall opposing the entrance, feels a bit impersonal, compared to the funky, downtown Austin vibe just around the corner, but the front desk staff is friendly, the rooms are comfortable, and the rooftop pool has great views of the city. The Finn & Porter hotel restaurant is a great fine dining option, and location is very convenient for the Austin Convention Center.

    This is not the most glamorous hotel but I'm giving it 4 stars for SXSW. The lobby is busting with activity during the conference/music fest and it also has free wifi. It is also a main end up point at the end of the night when all the parties/show end. If you want to be close to the panels then I recommend staying here.
