My family & friends stayed over the weekend for my birthday. We had a wonderful experience until it came time to checkout. They had added all these charges that I did not agree to when I paid for my reservation. Then on top of that, they ended up pulling almost $1000 from my bank account which I was told would be corrected but It still hasn’t been resolved as I have not received my refund! Just be wary that what you agree to when you book your reservation will not be correct and they’ll end up doubling the amount that both parties had priorly agreed too when booking.

Hotel's Favourite
While we often enjoy staying at Fairmont properties, this was one of the best we’ve stayed at. Our room was so beautiful and super clean. The picture is the view from our room. The location was great for us. Mitchel was beyond helpful throughout our stay. He offered us many suggestions for restaurants and activities to do within and outside of Austin. Since we were with our kids, we were concerned about safety guidelines. The hotel felt very safe. All staff had masks appropriately on their face covering their mouth and nose. Also, the breakfast was really good.

Picked the hotel for a weekend to visit family and chose this property because it had a large pool area and lost of amenities. The hotel was so crowded with bachelor and bachelorette parties that we were never able to got to the pool with our kids as there were never chairs available and the cabanas were packed with those looking for bottle service. We found out that they had a day pass you could buy to use the pool for the day so no room left for guests. Pretty disapointing. Also it was difficult to speak with anyone for service or get your car from valet they were just too busy for the staff to handle. The rooms were nice and when you did speak with the staff they tried to be helpful. I'm now trying to get a copy of the bill they were supposed to email and can't even get through on their phone lines. Leave this one to the Millenials. Definitely not what you'd expect from a Fairmont property

We really had a wonderful time in Austin. We love the state and enjoyed the room - even though we weren't in there very much from touring the city. Thank you for the great stay, we will be back again very soon!

Rooms and check in service were great. Overall we did enjoy our stay. Perhaps it was just our encounter but the staff at the pool and breakfast had a care-free attitude. Did not take concern in serving us on time and a few reminders had to be given. Most hotel chains match the price of third parties but this hotel’s reservation line could not offer close to the discounted Hotwire price (with which we did book for our first night) and disappointingly not even close to the rates on the Accor member app. It felt over the phone that the 10% discount offered was an exceptional case when it was just the standard Accor member discount which is offered on their app or when booking online.
