Local from Austin, Texas

I have mixed feelings about this property. While I love the Hilton that is only 2 blocks away, this particular property sits right next to I-35 on 5th Street, where 5th meets the on-ramp for the freeway. Not ideal. If you can get over that, the location is great for walking to all of the downtown attractions. The rooms are well maintained, and they do provide a discounted rate compared to their big brother down the way.

The Hilton Garden Inn Downtown sits in a great location. It sits right on the corner of east fifth street and I-35 frontage, so it’s near all the downtown activities. It’s in the heart of things. The only draw back is that the frontage road and east Fifth, which acts as a traffic corridor out of downtown, are typically filled with cars, especially on the weekends and during busy events. If you choose to leave the hotel, you will almost certainly sit in traffic. Since, it’s also located next to Austin’s major express way, in addition to being right next to the city’s main party district, 6th street, the rooms can be somewhat noisy at night. I would try to get a room on an upper level that sits on the west side of the building.

I did not stay here, but several organizations I am part of held end-of-semester or end-of-year banquets there. Parking can be a big hassle at night. The convention center itself is quite nice, as was the food that we were served.

Hanover, Maryland, USA

Was only here for 1 night, but they treated me like a queen. The valet boys were so on top of it, and I slept amazing on the adjustable bed!

Belmont, California, USA

Head up to the restaurant, 18th Over Austin, for one of the most beautiful views of downtown. You can get a panoramic view of the city as you lounge with a cocktail in hand.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Nice hotel, although it seems like the location is not ideal... it actually is. It's close to the river so if you want to run or take a stroll it's convenient! Also, if you're in town for a concert at Stubb's BBQ (or you just want to have some TX BBQ), it's very close to this as well.

Seems kind of forgotten at the end of 5th street by the highway, but the staff is friendly, the rooms are really comfortable (free wifi!), and the amenities are surprising. Rooms include microwave and usable fridge. Fitness center is currently under construction, and the outdoor pool has a great waterfall, but is more for dipping than real swimming.

New Smyrna Beach, Florida

Normally dont stay at Hilton properties but was offered a full suite, breakfast, free wireless and free valet for the cost of a standard room at competing properties. It was worth the hassle of the room not being ready on our arrival. Right in the heart of downtown and stumbling distance to 6th st.
