Departing for the airport

With 12 minutes left to spare we made the final walk thru while waiting for the airport shuttle. If we forgot it it's just going to be forgotten and we'll do without. This has been so stressful. We have 9 50-lb duffels and two carry-ons each. We will be out of WiFi the bulk of the time, ...

New Orleans

A travel blog entry by agnetasherborne

All but me went to the gym in the morning. Nice to be by myself and i took it easy and had a long hot shower. Spotty all over and a but of a soar throat so not entirely well. Breakfast was an easy affair or rather a light one in the room. Coffee and not much mire. Left the hotel a bit after nine and apart from a quick return after few hours to put n more clothes wasnt even hours trudging around the streets f New Orleans. Initially i thought it was not much to this famous city but ...

... track through the canyontop grasslands. Little drop-offs and meandering ravines provided some fun along with the constructed jumps and rollovers. This was a safari. I honestly expected to turn the corner to see some zebras and wildabeasts bowing to Mufasa.

I biked down the road to Hamilton pool to find that the gates close at 6:00pm. It was 6:45. Reimer's Ranch had gotten a hold of me and I hadn't explored even half of the park. I threw the bike on the Mazda ...

We are in Austin, Texas now staying at Lone Star RV just as we were a few years ago. Last time we were in Austin we had big plans to go downtown to see the sites including the Capitol, but those plans were foiled when there were a large number of birds found dead in the vicinity of the Capitol building. I think this was during the time that the bird virus first made its appearance and the city must ...

A Sweet Deal
The trip started off on a good note as Sue negotiated a great upgrade on our car rental and we got a beautiful Kia SUV for only $17 per day! 
We arrived at our nice bungalow on Lund Street in South Austin near Barton Springs reservoir and across the street from Zilker Park, where Austin City Limits is held every ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Austin

    Terrific Hotel

    from

    I just finished up a terrific stay at the Four Seasons Austin.

    The hotel is in a spectacular location right along the banks of Lake Austin (which looked a lot more like a river to me). There is a 4 mile running trial directly behind the Hotel and a quick walk across the river you can rent canoes by the Hyatt.

    The hotel itself is very attractive and comfortable but not oppulent. Rooms were nice but nothing special.

    The service however was exceptional, and I loved the little touches such as an overnight shoe shine and my choice of newspapers delivered to the door. Also some of the friendliest people I had ever encountered at a hotel.

    Try to get a room overlooking the river/lake if possible. It is definitely worht the additional $30 or so I paid.

    Just okay....

    from

    Stayed two nights at this hotel earlier in the week. Nice rooms, comfy beds and excellent service. The one bad thing I noticed was that my bathroom was not that clean upon arrival. I would have changed rooms, but I had already unpacked.

    Overall, for a Four Seasons Hotel it's just okay, but the service is above average, so I think I would consider staying here again in the future.

    Consistent top rated hotel in town

    from

    I've stayed at a number of places in Austin including the Marriott, the Omni, the Driskill, the DoubleTree Suites. But after experimenting around I find myself returning to the Four Seasons. The first couple of times I stayed here I wasn't that impressed with it as a luxury hotel, but I realized once I tried other places, this was the preferred hotel to be in Austin.

    Not the greatest hotel

    from

    Nice hotel, but for the price and reputation as a Four Seasons hotel I would have expected more.

    Pros:

    Many amenities, lovely outdoor area facing the lake

    Beautiful lobby

    convenient location

    Cons:

    Pricy

    "bland" interior

    paper thin walls, no soundproofing anywhere

    uncomfortable bed

    staff not as attentive as other Four Seasons

    Verdict:

    Unless you HAVE to have a pool, stay at the Driskill or the Hampton Inn in Downtown Austin.

    Great relaxing time!

    from

    My husband & I stayed here 4th of July week-end & had a relaxing week-end without kids. We loved the location & amenities at this hotel. We loved the easy access to the wonderful hike & bike trail, downtown, & the view of the river. We parked the car & walked everywhere. It was great! THe service at the pool was wonderful as was the restaurant.

    Great experience, with beauty and grace!

    from

    Made reservations for two artists from St. Petersburg, Russia,who were doing a show in Houston. Well known in Europe and are doing same misty photography in Florence, Italy thus well travled. Their stay at the Four Seasons was delightful to hear.Alexsei took off his shoes before entering the bathroom...it was so spellbound. What a great introduction to our beautiful Austin.Of course, we all met them for breakfast and they loved the natural beauty of this place called the Four Seasons.Okay, these were Russians, right? But then I went in for a massage at the Health Club and a woman from Dallas tells me what a delight to drive down to Austin and stay at the Four Seasons...AND THEN, she adds, her 13 year old son was enchanted with the bathroom...so very white and beautiful.You figure!

    Four Star Service

    from

    I found the staff at the Four Seasons to be extremely attentive and responsive. Our tiniest wish was their command. The accomodations were spectacular. Our room overlooked the lovely grounds and Town Lake down below. The bed was comfortable and the turn-down service included a fresh down comforter at night. There was complimentary shoe shine service and newspaper, and room service was prompt and very professional. Very pleased with the experience.

    High Quality in every way

    from

    I recently rented three rooms for a December graduation trip, and returned again in January. Our 80+ year old grandparents didn't know they even made hotels so beautiful. We rented the cheapest rooms on a low floor and were completely satisfied. The "downtown" view is great ... no need to pay extra to view the "lake". The piano/vocalist who plays in the lobby bar/restaurant is wonderful. Ask for a hamburger there, which isn't on the bar menu but is delicious. My only complaint was that they charge for high-speed internet in the rooms. I used the free internet connection in the lobby instead to check email. We will be staying there again.

    Beautiful hotel

    from

    I recently stayed at the Four Seasons in Austin, and had a great time.

    I was upgraded to a much nicer room with a balcony when I arrived. The one hour pressing service left our clothes looking perfect. The lobby bar was beautiful and fun. The service was friendly and extremely competent. The Sunday brunch was the best I've ever had. Overall, it was a wonderful stay at a great hotel.

    One Four Seasons that Doesn't Live Up to the BrandName

    from

    I went to Austin for a two day business trip and arrived at the Four Seasons only to find that they did not have a room for me. It was 11:30 PM at night and such a disappointment to have to be shipped somewhere else at such a late hour. I did go back the next day (only because the hotel I went to was sold out that night) and was upgraded due to the situation the prior evening. This was a nice gesture, but the thermostat in the room did not work and my room was heated by the sun for hours. This problem was not fixed while I was there. I had to wait 1 hour for room service to bring my dinner, the staff at the bar were so busy I was only able to order one drink in the 45 minutes that I waited and it was never delivered to me, the towels that were left in my room DEFINATELY weren't fresh, there was hair on the toilet and in the middle of the night I was woken up by a cricket that had found it's way into my room. Upon checking out of the hotel, I expressed my disatisfaction with my stay and asked for a possible reduction in rate. The clerk looked at me like I was crazy and stated "I can't authorize that and my manger is out of town." Obviously this hotel is popular; but for this homegrown Texas girl, I prefer service over myth.
