The staff at the Hyatt Place Downtown Austin is superb! From the front desk all the way to the maintenance staff, they are fantastic. Everyone I encountered was warm, kind, helpful and seemed genuinely happy! Whatever you are doing to keep your employees that happy, keep doing it!
Keep up the good work and I will keep staying there and continue recommending your property!

I went to Austin for a weekend conference in the warehouse district.
My usual hotel was sold out for December 31, so I found Extended Stay America nearby.
I stayed on the fourth floor in 410 overlooking a courtyard; it was quiet.
The elevator door needed help closing frequently. Only one elevator ran; the other was being repaired.
The room was comfortable with an easy chair and two desk chairs and a desk. There was also a refrigerator and electric range.
At the front desk I borrowed a large set of cooking and eating utensils at no added charge. I was lend two of several items, including table spoons, tea spoons, forks, knives, cutting knives, bowls, small plates, large plates, cups, and glasses. Additionally there were pots and pans.
The bathroom contained a small container of shampoo and a bar of soap. I provided my own conditioner and hand lotion.
Towels and wash clothes were provide.
There was no housekeeping provided.
From 6 to 9:30 am in the lobby there was hot coffee and hot water, tea bags, and cocoa. Also there were apples and oranges, blueberry, brain, and chocolate chip muffins. There were bags of oatmeal.
Downtown Austin’s attractions include The University of Texas at Austin and the Texas State Capitol. Austin also lays claim to another capital: live music. Bars and clubs pack a half-mile stretch of Sixth Street. The gay-friendly Warehouse District is another nightlife hub, as is the SoCo District south of Lady Bird Lake. On summer nights, 1.5 million bats emerge from the Congress Avenue bridge.
