Rated 3 out of 5 by S4031 customer service, excellent
The people who work at your hotel are definitely caring individuals who want their guests to have a great experience. From the door man to the desk clerks everyone was nice, friendly and quite helpful. They did their best to manage an out of control wedding after party that lasted until 5am

Rated 5 out of 5 by LD610 The staff is wonderful!
The staff had everything prepared, even my early check in and directions to where to go before my conference started.
The sitting areas are strategically placed so I could enjoy the bar, balcony and/or the business area.
The staff was able to keep a supply of taxi's available for our group of 50+ people during the 4 days we were staying.
The beds are cozy and the pillows seemed to make falling asleep easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LGill Our Stay in Austin
Overall, the hotel was very nice. We had trouble checking in once we arrived. We had called earlier and no one had mentioned the credit card verification form. Once we got there, the man behind the desk was not very helpful in helping us find a way to get the form or another solution. Danielle was excellent and once we told her what was going on, she gave us a solution to the problem and got our room and everything situated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ACLKris ACL Weekend
I went to Austin for ACL weekend. When I checked in Thursday night, the concierge didn't recognize my SPG status of being Platnium. It was almost like I felt it was a bother to even speak to the gentlemen at the front desk. He didn't offer me the Plat. welcome gift or offer to participate in the make it green choice (as the other SPG hotels do). The one thing that I dislike about SPG is how some hotels 'claim' to be a franchise and do NOT participate in most promotions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jmell Staff is outstanding
The staff in the hotel bar and breakfast area were outstanding. We had a group of 20 people and we had a great time in the lobby bar. The staff made sure we could still get in the hotel even after 2am!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TouringtheUSA Great Service, but Aging Rooms
I visited on a short stay (Friday night - Saturday) and the SPG Gold / Platinum Desk team member was very accommodating to set me up with a room facing downtown. That evening I showered before going to sleep, but found in the morning that the shower had not drained at all, but had also a metallic residue built up. To the staff's credit, maintenance showed up within minutes, but unfortunately I was advised that this required snaking the pipes and additional work. While this was not a terrible inconvenience for me as I was checking out that day, so I told maintenance not to worry about fixing it for the balance of my morning, had I been on a business trip or staying longer (e.g., having an early AM start), I would imagine that a maintenance matter like this should be noticed during the regular cleaning cycle, not a last minute maintenance matter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shred61 Looking forward to my next visit with Sheraton!
As soon as I arrived, I was greeted with a warm welcome by Mike the porter/bellman. Registration was quick and effortless. My room was clean, with plenty of storage for everything. Always love the beds!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Davusmc Not Awesome
Nothing special. High priced, uncomfortable beds and pillows. Everything you do costs extra. Not Austin's Finest.
Stuck here for a convention meeting. I'll stay elsewhere next time. Couldn't even park my duelly truck in the garage for the self parking fee, had to use valet, parked on the street the entire convention.

My first stay at this hotel was a great experience. This time, not so much. I tried for 2 days to get WiFi internet access in my room and even had IT support contacted twice with no success. My sink also backed up twice and when reported at midnight I was told that maintenance wouldn't be available til 7:00am. Any other place I know of has maintenance on call even after hours. Other than that, hotel staff were nice and friendly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FreqTraveler Need Renovations
I think this hotel used to be very nice when it was new, but it definitely need some renovation. The furniture is old and the carpet doesn't smell good... to make it worse they use a lot kinda cleaner or refresher.
I could barely use the internet connection in there. I came in a business trip and tried to work from my room one day, but I had to leave, cause my connection was too slow.
The price is high for what you get.

stayed in the hotel in May 21-24, 2013. Very nice hotel with alot of room to move around. The staff was very friendly too. The only negatives would be is my room didn't have a mini referigerator or microwave (for $159 a night, these should been furnished automatically with no extra charge). Also, the wifi never worked though I called the help desk multiple times I still had problems... but still a nice hotel overall :)

Not an ideal property in Austin. Located on the highway, outdated building, in need of cleaning and updating. Staff is responsive at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucy81 Good Place to stay
Sheraton at the Capitol is a good place to stay. It is near downtown Austin and easy to get to.
The room was very clean and met our needs.
Wish they would flip/turn mattresses on the bed, though. It would make it a bit more comfortable. Other than that, it's a good place to stay while in Austin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jamie Excellent Hotel and Staff, but food could improve
While we really enjoyed our stay, the only thing we were disappointed in was the room service food. We ordered the breakfast and it was awful, the eggs did not taste right and the hashbrowns tasted like they were the instant ones. It was not cheap either. Other than that, all the staff was very friendly and helpful, we would definitely stay here again. The location was very convenient to everything.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RSNS Remodel did not go all the way
This hotel is in a great location and the remodel of the lobby/bar looks great. However, the investments seem to have been limited to the first floor and hallway carpets and bedroom furniture do not appear to have been touched. The stains and bumps in the hallway carpets and peeling desk chair took away from the experience. Kudos to the front desk staff - courteous to all guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by abailes Nice hotel but...
Nice hotel. Great location. But they didn't give me a receipt before I left, and it's practically impossible to get anyone on the phone afterward. Also, the air conditioner vent blows right at your head when you're in bed.

Overall everything at the hotel was beautiful and the staff was awesome. The only complaint I had both the night before and the next morning was that my air conditioner was not working properly and the room stayed at 71.0 degrees. It was MUCH cooler in the hallways.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KAM403 Good for basic needs
The hotel met my basic needs, and I did like the weight room, but service was lacking a bit: - Front desk told me the only way I could get some milk was through Room Service, but Room Service told me bar was open and would be cheaper - they were right.
- Took me two tries to get a refrigerator
- Wireless connectivity broke at one point - I was transferred to IT but no answer

Remodeled lobby is inviting and great place to watch any sporting event, but not noisy. Remodeled rooms are upgraded with better wi-if access and new TV! Lastly, staff has always been the reason I return. The staff is attentive and focused to make you feel comfortable.

My wife and I recently spent the Memorial Day weekend at the hotel. The staff were all very helpful and welcoming being new to town. The rooms were comfortable and the location perfect to be able to see the sites of Austin. We would highly recommend it as a place to stay for those wanting a hotel that was comfortable but close to all of the activities in the city.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Harleyfan Check-in was a disaster
Entered hotel at 3:45 pm. Was told our room would be ready in "a few minutes". At 5pm we were told there was an a/c unit problem and were assigned another room. Totally acceptable, but why make us wait over an hour whan a comparable room sat vacant. They comp'd out self park for our 2 days.
Vent return in bathroom was loaded with dust.
Roomservice food was room temp.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Biztraveler Things that were missing
The check-in process was frustrating, because rooms were not available when I arrived (1PM). So I went to the gym to workout, and afterwards, found out there was no hot water in the shower, no soap or shampoo or conditioner in the dispensers. The toilet in my room rocked (scary), and the shower drain was clogged. This hotel needs to focus on its maintenance program.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Beto1 Good features
The hotel was good. Did not like the parking garage elevators and construction clutter. The music from a club a block away carried on until midnight. With an early morning function at the Capital the noise was very bothersome. I was expecting an excellent nights sleep with the comfortable bed but that did not happen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dallascnh In need of upgrades
Our room was furished with a mix of random furnishings that ranged from a cheap looking lucite TV stand to some beat up wood peices. Our room was furnished with "2" bath towels. Not what I would have expected from Sheraton/Starwood Properties.
