After spending 26 hours in transit, we finally arrived in Austin. We went up to our hotel to have a quick look at our rooms, before going to get some dinner. Pictures are on their way, we are all currently in our rooms (It's 11:35pm in Austin)

Tomorrow, we are leaving at 7:00am for the 3 and a half hour trip to Houston Space Centre.
We will update again tomorrow

The original plan was for me to go to Dallas, but some friends insisted Austin was more my sort of town. They were right! What a lovely city. So clean, so friendly and so very HOT!

The drive down was fantastic. No major highways, just empty back roads with cute little towns dotted along the way. There were a couple of moments when Texas …

Blast off!

... time when I arrive, I probably will let you all know that I made it safe andsound at a nicer hour. I honestly don't know what to expect yet upon my arrival, so I may also be very busy and away from internet at first. Fingers crossed, I will be able to touch base with everyone as soon as possible. Looking forward to finally being in France. Happy New Year to each of you! Here's to losing 7 hours of my ...

... this afternoon to update the gps software cause it's acting funny. Maybe have a snooze so I'm ready to do Mike and the Moonpies tonight at Stubb's. Stuff doesn't really get going till around 9pm.
That didn't work out very well. There was a very heavy rainfall while I was walking to Stubb's and I got soaked. When I got there I saw that the band I wanted to see didn't come on till 11:30. Just too late for me. Too bad but it was a great day...

Drove out this morning to Carlsbad Caverns and was lucky enough to get last minute tour tickets down the Left Hand Passage, a very moderate candlelit journey with good opportunities for the ranger to describe the formation of the caverns, the various types of "decorations" and the underground ecosystem. After the tour I walked around the electrically ...

    I took a room on the top floor with a balcony. Hotel staff were freindly. Room service was good, although I don't like all the add on's ie: delivery charge plus tax PLUS gratuity fee 20%! Of course, you still feel the need to tip on top of this. Bottled water in the room was $3 a go. Free at other places. Wi-Fi was a decent speed although $10 a day!!! Wi-fi should be FREE!!! Room was really nice. Would have been even better had the cleaners done a better job of the balcony. First day it was ignored totally, second day someone had been out there, as the ashtray had been emptied, but all the cobwebs were still there. However...would still go back.

    Nice but needs room makeover

    from

    This hotel is really nice. The service is EXCELLENT, the overall hotel is tastefully decorated and new but the rooms are not nice. The furniture is outdated and needs to be painted or thrown out. Needs to be re-wallpapered or painted. I would stay here again but not for a penny over $70. You can stay somewhere else nicer for over that.

    Not too good

    from

    I booked over 3 weeks in advance, through -------, I am a so -called gold passport meember- whatever that gets you!

    I travel 20 weeks a year- same routine, , non smoking , king. I arrive one Monday evening after confirming earlier in the day- 2 dbl beds, smoking! , WE ARE SOLD OUT ! ! after 15 minsutes and a 14 hr day, I finally get room 414, looked like a dude ranch, plastic looking pine furniture, air freshner too strong.

    Room service next morning, , on time- no coffeee in the pot! I call, 15 minutes later, coffeee, no pens or paper pads in room, again next day left. Final day, same room sercice order is tootaly wrong and not my order.

    Not a real Hyatt, marginal and very dated decor!

    Terrific staff! Great location.

    from

    We just returned from a 3 night stay at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Austin. We were part of a large group attending a family wedding. This hotel is definitely busy all the time. The staff, however, do an amazing job of making the stay pleasant. For example, we had requested early check in but housekeeping was still cleaning rooms mid afternoon Thursday. The front desk knew we had been waiting and upgraded us to a lake view instead of making us wait any longer. We also moved rooms after our 2nd night due to noisy neighbors (security had to call in the Austin police!). But the staff made the situation right by waiving 2 nights of our stay. Very gracious of them! Also, food and bar were good.

    Not here

    from

    The staff was doing the best they could with this hotel. Actually, they were terrific, in spite of the busy Austin City Limits Music Festival weekend. The problem is, the hotel is architecturally challenged. Hyatt skimped on space, and it makes the whole place less charming.

    Great place to stay

    from

    I have to say this hotel was great. A couple of the reveiws I read were negative and I would have to disagree with them. I thought the hotels decor was very very nice. Everyone was very friendly. We encountered absolutely no problems. We chose the $9 a day parking and that worked out good. Had the valet call a taxi to pick us up front to take us downtown and had a taxi within minutes and only paid $5 for the ride. Ate at a great place on 6th st. Iron Cactus, strolled around downtown 4th and 6th street then headed back to the hotel. Slept great. There is a walking trail next to the hotel that we took all the way to Barton Springs at Zilker park. About a 1.5 mile walk. We love to walk so this was very convenient, hung out at the park then walked back to the hotel. If you like to work out on your trips Hyat has a modern fitness room with great equipment that you would find in a fitness club. If you need computer access and dont have a laptop they also have a business center with a computer to use. We never ate at the hotel but the restaurants looked very nice. We paid under $100 for our room and felt it was well worth it and would definitely go back.

    Relaxing!

    from

    I stayed only for one night in July and will come again for a weekend. I had a priceline rate and was told for 25.00 more that I could upgrade my room and view. It wasn't the "chosen" room but was still very comfortable.

    Had a very nice stay. Recommended.

    from

    I stayed here on business in June 2004 for 2 nights. I didn't read the reviews on this web site until after I returned. I did not experience any of the problems mentioned in the other reviews. Sure, the room was small (actually, I would say average). But that isn't unusual these days. I was by myself, so it didn't matter. The room was clean and comfortable. Great location next to the river/lake. No issues with the hotel staff. They were very pleasant. Nice lobby bar. The other reviews stated that the hotel was in need of a major renovation. To me, I thought the hotel was kept up quite nicely. I didn't use the pool or exercise facility, so I can't comment on them. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if in the area.

    Past due for a extremem makeover

    from

    We stay at many Hyatts, this was a true nightmare. I've stayed in nicer Holiday Inn Expresses on the road. Small and dingy, the worst bed I've ever slept in and a staff that basically could care less. But hat a beautiful location and our room had an incredible view of the river. It's too bad the hotel is too run down to ever consider going back.

    I don't have much to compare it to, our 1st trip to Austin, but surely other hotels can manage to supply sheets and towels that don't reek of bleach!

    we stayed the week end 3/12 -3/14 2004. we got a great deal on priceline 52.00. everything was good. the view of the city was great.

    In a nut shell, the Hyatt Regency was not a AAA 4-diamond hotel as the plaques on its wall so proudly proclaimed.
