Pros: A historic hotel with lots of character in the old building. Our rooms were in the modern part and quite comfortable.
Cons: I was charged two different prices for the rooms via booking.com and ultimately the rooms were the same. The staff said we had to go through booking.com if we wanted to addresss it. Overall the staff were okay. If you have problems with accessibility you might struggle at this hotel as their is no direct elevator. You need to switch elevators or take one set of stairs.

Pros: This is an expensive hotel and they trade on it's historical status. I really liked the historical atmosphere and we were lucky to have a room in the truly historical section. We loved our view of Austin. The radio being on when we arrived was a nice touch.
Cons: A king size bed should always have a nightstand on both sides.
