Travel Blogs from Austin
Well holy smokes...yea I guess I'm not so good at the blog thing. But better late than never!! So this blog posting tells of my comings and goings of my roadtrip to Austin, Texas and all the stops that happened along the way, as well as, my first three weeks of Austin life...I can't believe I've been here for three weeks already
So here we go...5 states, 4 cities, 6 days/5 nights, over approximately 2,200 miles!! First stop was Moab, Utah. I arrived at dusk, ...
... of our stuff and drove the six km to downtown Austin where we parked and walked around the great, in size not necessarily in looks, State Capitol building with a dome bigger than the one in Washington DC. It wasn't open though so it had to suffice to circumnavigate it and admire various statues in the park surrounding it. Some weird Christians around. No whops open but we found a nice bar with an outside patio where we had a drink each. ...
... lead singer. She played uke as well. Standup base, drums and a guy who played keyboard, horn and accordion. They do have youtube videos. Really cool standup area to watch the band. I think I'm back there tomorrow to see Mike and the Moonpies.
P.S. Did you know that in an emergancy you can dry small garments in the microwave? Cool.
... left the next morning to go to Dallas. In Dallas we stayed with the Ggolias for just one night, but it was great. We played in the yard, another family came over, and we slept really soundly. The Ggolias are just such great people. This morning Dad actually left ( yes, again ) to go to Lexington this time for his college reunion. However, we are in Austin, my hometown, now, so we are PSYCHED. 10 days here will fly by, then like 1.5 weeks till home!!!
... first job as a park ranger and told us much more about the area than I am able to recount here. A very unique spot where we will spend three nights, at least.
It's warmer, in the fifties today, so we hope that it won't freeze up our outdoor water hose. We will see. It's thirty-seven now at a bit after nine PM. I'll upload some pics with this since we have decent phone internet.
Muchas gracias for checkin' in, Amigos...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Austin
We stayed for only one night on the 25th floor which is the executive level. The hotel was absolutely clean and beautiful. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The most comfy beds I have every slept in. Food at the Liberty Tavern was just okay. I would recommend staying on the executive floor, very, very nice. Also has a beautiful health club and great pool on the 8th floor. We would definately stay here again!
Great Stay, Very Comfortable
Fantastic, very comfortable. I usually have problems sleeping well in hotels, not this time. The bed which included a down comforter was so comfortable, I slept through the night and did not want to get up the next morning. The staff was available but not intrusive. Overall, I had a great stay.
Hilton Austin Convention Center
We took our two children 9 yrs and 12 yrs to Austin. The Hilton Convention Center is new, nice, and right in the 6th street district of excellent food & nightlife.Our room was on the Executive Level which had a lounge area where complementary water, sodas and appetizers were served as well as continental breakfast. The staff was very helpful & courteous. The rooms were great and well priced for the amenities. The gym is right on the pool, so I could work out while watching the kids swim.This was our first trip to Austin, and the hotel made the visit very positive.
Not bad at all
I shared a room when I was here for a conference in January. Overall I was really impressed with the interior and feel of the hotel. Everything seemed really clean, untouched and new (perhaps, because it was!). The only downside was the amount of noise in the evening (but then we were in live capital of the world) and the hotel seemed to be surrounded by construction sites. The room was nice, maybe a bit small but I really liked the shower! The staff were ok, neither friendly nor unfriendly, but the food in Liberty's restaurant was really too greasy. Having said that, I enjoyed my stay here very much and I would recommend it to others.
It was just a'ight. My husband is a Hilton Diamond HHonors member so we spend a lot of time in Hiltons both on business and pleasure. We took a weekend trip to Austin this past weekend (4/16 - 4/18) and were intrigued by the hotel's location to the State Capitol, Sixth Street and other restaurants, shops, etc.
Attended a convention there. Beautiful place. Friendly staff. Close to nightlife and dining. I saw nothing to complain about during my four day stay. the beds were the best ever. each bed has seven pillows. talk about comfy. also they use the best smelling shampoo and conditioner.
first, i didn't want to get out of bed, then, i didn't want to get out of the shower. i would recommend this place to anyone.
My husband and I went to Austin to get away for the weekend. We found the Hiltons location excellent because it was within walking distance to everything that we wanted to see. The rooms were great and extremely comfortable (6 feather pillows). Besides the comfort and newness to the hotel the staff could not have been more helpful. I am looking forward to the next time we go to Austin just to stay in this hotel again.
I stayed here for a few days in Feb. 2003. It had just opened, and it showed. The interior is large, opulent, and just as you would expect for a convention center hotel. However they were mired with new hotel problems such as:
Great new Hilton
This is a first class, new Hilton. Excellent location a block away from popular 6th street entertainment. Beds, layout and amenities are top notch.
Hilton was top notch
The brand new Hilton downtown is incredible. We stayed in a corner room and had a great view of the city. Rooms (especially corner rooms) are huge. Ammenities were outstanding. Beds were awesome. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone. My friends and I were in town to party downtown and the lady at the front desk put us in a corner room away from everyone else so noise was not an issue. At one point we probably had 15 people visiting and there was plenty of room to move about. We loved our stay so much that we already booked 4 more nights over the next 2 months. The location is perfect for 6th street or the warehouse district nightlife.
