Embassy Suites Downtown is in a fabulous location and more updated or renovated since the last time I stayed there. It is located at the end of the Congress Bridge approaching the South Congress (SoCo) district and near where the Austin bats live. After going through the beautiful lobby I got to the room to find a modern, clean and spacious room. The separate living room was huge and besides the basic hotel amenities it also comes with a microwave, mini refrigerator and free Wi-Fi. Inside the hotel you will find the indoor pool, whirlpool, the Copper Bar and Restaurant, and every evening they have complimentary beverages and snacks in the hotel's atrium. The Embassy Suites are within walking distance to the Congress Bridge Austin Bats, Lady Bird Lake and the hike and bike trail, SoCo and a short taxi or petty taxi to downtown.

If you’re looking for luxury in central Austin, The Embassy Suites is the place to go. Upon walking inside, the hotel feels like its own microcosm of replenishment and peace. A friendly aquarium of fish line the entrance and the lobby is full of greenery. The in-house restaurant wafts its delicious fragrances down the hall and invites the guests inside. There’s a daily happy hour every evening and a free breakfast each morning. The pull-out couch is one of the most comfortable I’ve sat on. Go ahead and sprawl out across them; you might not want to get back up. The bedrooms offer more than enough space for party of people, and with the free shuttle offering rides to downtown, who wouldn’t want to bring their friends?

The Embassy Suites Austin - Downtown/Town Lake location is conveniently located along Congress Avenue and Barton Springs, where you can walk to the South Congress Shopping and Entertainment District. It’s also a short pedicab ride across the river into downtown. This is a great location if you have an event at the Palmer Events Center, as it’s just a short walk. It’s also a solid location if you are in town for the ACL Music Festival or FunFunFun Fest. I recommend using this location to take advantage of the close location to Barton Springs, which is an fresh water pool and is one of Austin’s hidden secrets. The hotel is nice on the inside, which is deceptive, because the exterior looks basic and somewhat boring. The rooms are spacious and has all the normal amenities you would expect.

First to Review

This hotel is not at all what you would expect from the outside. The inside is circular with all the hotels facing towards the center where there is a bar and lounge area on the first floor. The glass elevators carry you to your room where you are pleasantly surprised by how enormous the rooms are, with the bedroom separate from the living room area equipped with a work desk. The location is perfect for anyone hoping to spend a lot of time downtown, on the lake, on famous South Congress, watching the Congress bats, or hanging out just down the road at Barton Springs/Zilker Park (where ACL happens). From here you can literally walk to all the best that Austin has to offer. They have an indoor pool, but you can use the Hyatt’s outdoor pool across the street if you’d rather.
