Property is excluded yet not too far from sixth street. Room needs a bit of an update, especially the carpet. Everything else including the lobby is beautiful!

The hotel is beautiful and in a great location. I loved the pool area; however many of their plants were dead and the pool deck is dangerously hot.

The hotel itself was very nice and in the perfect location. The customer service/check in process was miserable. Check-in was supposed to start at 3:00 pm, we arrived at 5:30. We waited in line for 45 minutes just to be told that our room was not ready yet. How could this be when check-in started at 3:00pm?? We were then told we would receive a text when our room was ready and would receive $100 food/beverage credit to our room. Another 45 minutes pass, we receive the text that our room was finally ready and to go to the concierge desk to get keys. We get to the concierge desk, there is no one there. I was told I would not have to wait in the check in line AGAIN for another 45 minutes so we waited. After 30 minutes of more waiting and flagging down some hotel staff since no one seemed to care that we were standing there waiting, someone comes out to give us our keys. They should have let people know ahead of time that they were running behind on getting rooms ready. We had reservations at 7:30pm and did not make it because we did not receive our keys until 7:00pm. After that the trip went smoothly until check out, I asked for a receipt to ensure that they actually gave us the $100 credit like they said they would. The man began to read the charges to me and of course they did NOT put the credit on our room. If I had not asked about it again they would of never given it to us. I was pretty disappointed with the beginning and ending interaction with the hotel staff.

The hotel is conveniently located in downtown Austin. To find and near 6th street. Self parking was a disappoint costing $39 dollars a day and no free alternative. Rooms are nice. Pool is very busy. If you don’t go Dow early you may not get a lounge chair.

Horrible service. Worst Fairmont I have ever stayed in and I was so disappointed. Everytime someone was going to help us or serving us they left to help someone else. We had to loop around twice to get a valet attendant. Check-in then took 45 mins with maybe 4 couples in front of us. When going to the pool you were stopped to see if you had food or drink in your bag- not to check if you were a guest. We stood in line in the heat for 25 mins for a drink at the pool. No chairs were available at the pool. Pool had murky water. The pool waiter was rude. No fresh towels when we tried to go back at night. An employee yelled at 10pm to “pools closed- get out.” Felt like I was at a high school summer camp not a resort. The lobby bar was very warm because of the glass. The cocktails were not balanced. We sat the entire time with all our old glassware on our table.
