... writing until my parking spot expired. A giant Caddyshack Bill Murray & Gopher painted on the side. I would’ve stayed longer. Bennu Coffee feels like Cuppa. A Technicolor Dalai Lama canvas and mismatched chairs. The Baristas are friendly and with just the right amount of persnickety-ness. Tea, thoughts, pencil and paper.

Google has just moved its head quarters here and hence this area is being seen as the next Silicon Valley. Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in the USA and is the fittest city in USA.

... 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...

Two highlights of the day so far, the cowboy boot shop - oh my! Shame that the ones I like (inlaid with swarskovski crystals) are $1500. Last but not least is coming back to my room and reading through emails - thanks for your lovely words, stuff like that keeps me going! ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Austin Hotel
Beautiful place, fantastic location
We housed family members from all over the country here for a wedding in mid-November. They loved it, everything was perfect, and the staff bent over backward to be helpful. For guests without rental cars, this is the best place imaginable, there is so much shopping, so many places to eat in walking distance -- and so many beautiful places to walk. It is hard to imagine a better value / price deal than this hotel. I hate to share this with the world for fear of word getting out and prices going up, but this place deserves it. We will return!
Perfect weekend getaway
This is a beautiful and relaxing hotel. We arrived late on a Friday, and walked next door to the cheesecake factory for dinner. After dinner, we strolled through the shops before heading back to the room. On saturday, a conference kept me busy all day, but the evening was very pleasantly filled with the indoor pool, and the relaxing pianist in the lobby. We just had to open the balcony door and the music would fill the room. The room was spacious, the bathroom was nice sized, while not overly huge. The linens were clean, and the carpets and furniture were exceptionally cared for. I would definitely stay here again, even without having a meeting or a conference.
The hotel was excellent! Service was mostly excellent. The two pools (one indoor and one outdoor) and the nearby duck pond and cow statues were great too. Lovely grounds, friendly service, and excellent location. The rooms were terrific and VERY WELL SOUNDPROOFED! We had five rooms and all were terrific.
It was terrific to walk over to FRIDAYS and Barnes and Noble with the kids. There is plenty of open space to enjoy and our large family could find plenty of spaces to hang out. The club level amenities were great too!
I've found my hotel in Austin!
Loved this hotel
Stayed here after reading the previous reviews on Tripadvisor. It is indeed a wonderful place. Great location, facility, and staff. Would highly recommend to all. Glad to see the Renaissance brand is now under the Marriott umbrella. Will definitely be returning to this location when in Austin.
Terrific location and stay
What a great hotel! Very nice grounds. Many great restaurants, w/in walking distance. We stayed here and walked for dinner, breakfast and ice cream. Great place for a walk after dinner or in the morning. The staff was very helpful. We had a beautiful nice room, with a great price. I'd stay hear again.
Top notch hotel!
We stayed here for 3 nights and were very pleased. The rooms are huge, comfortable, clean, modern and nicely decorated. The staff was very warm and helpful. The location is great for dining, shopping and sight seeing. Parking is abundant and free. The grounds are beautiful. No significant complaints. We'd love to stay here again.
I just returned from a four night stay at the Austin Renaissance. Everything was excellent. I had a executive suite (?) which was huge and had a beautiful view of the hills behind the hotel. The room was newly renovated in elegant Texas Hill Country style - - really beautiful earth tone reds, golds, browns, and greens. It was also very comfortable. If you don't need the extra square footage, the regular rooms looked very appealing too. The room and the entire hotel were immaculate. The service is great - - the staff is friendly, professional and well-trained. I liked the location because the hotel is in suburban northwest Austin. It is part of a large outdoor shopping area with lots of upscale stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. It was very convenient. Also, there is free self-parking. If you want to take in all of the main tourist attractions, you will have to drive downtown. However, it is only about a 15-minute drive. I had an amazing rate of $154.00 per night which included breakfast either in the restaurant or via room service. The food was very good. Don't miss the lemon souffle pancakes which are only on the restaurant menu and not on the room service menu. They are truly one of the most delicious breakfast entrees I have ever eaten. This hotel is an outstanding value and will be hard to beat. One tip that does not pertain to this hotel is to be sure and give yourself at least 45 minutes to drive to the airport, probably over an hour during rush hour. The roads are under construction, directional signs are few and confusing, and the traffic in the middle of the day was terrible.
Great beds, beautiful grounds
Stayed here a few days ago and have stayed several times in the past. Have never had a problem whatsoever. The beds are some of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Just wished they had queens instead of doubles. Nicely decorated rooms. Indoor and outdoor pools are not large, but well maintained. Large grounds with some lovely walks. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Location is a ways from downtown, but very convenient to the Arboretum shops and restaurants. Self parking is easy and there is valet, too. The restaurant is excellent, but the snack bar in the atrium is very expensive. Great place to stay!
Look No Further....
I chose this hotel based on the first review and it was a wonderful hotel experience at a reasonable price. The staff members were very courteous, our room and bathroom were spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. We will definitely stay here again.
