Rated 4 out of 5 by Nugget Excellent Location, Excellent Staff
I booked a corner view room the evening before the Austin Marathon and was very happy with my stay. Every interaction with hotel staff was five star and the location is near ideal for any traveller who plans to spend time in downtown Austin. This is a very walkable location for anyone looking to enjoy the Capital area or Austin's famed live music night life. The view from our room was spectacular as well.
The room was at the level I expect from a Sheraton property but not otherwise remarkable. Comfortable bed, but the bathroom was just average. The usual number of power outlets and work surfaces. Wireless Internet was fast and five bar signal strength.
A lot of street noise from local music venues did make its way into our room, even on the 15th floor. This is not the fault of the hotel, of course, but it is something to consider if you need to get to sleep early or are an otherwise light sleeper. If that's the sort of thing that annoys you, it almost certainly will at this hotel -- particularly on a weekend stay. If you're in town for the music then just consider it a bonus.
The lobby bar is way better than you're probably imagining it to be. Sets the standard for that sort of thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RobRob Short but great stay - Great staff!
We stayed at this hotel on a recent “Texas college roadtrip” primarily because of its proximity to UT Austin. Being just off the freeway, it’s extremely easy to find and get to, but is still quiet. It was our first visit and was just an overnight, but we really enjoyed it. Two favorite places: Adjacent to the lobby bar is a large work table that overlooks the Sheraton@Work area, the restaurant and the pool and patio, which was our favorite outdoor area. Both were nice because the kids headed right for the pool while the grownups took advantage of that work table and free Wi-Fi and could keep an eye on them. The bartender was awesome! He managed to whip us up lattes and decaf green tea all evening; much appreciated.
Check in was fast and simple. The desk staff seemed well versed on the hotel and surrounding area, and were able to offer good advice on walking distances, parking at the Capital, and local restaurants. Even better, they surprised me with vouchers for breakfast, which I didn't realize (and am still not sure) was included in the rate. One problem: the two rooms we booked for the family were on separate floors. The agent apologized and explained that, because they were very full, she couldn't get us adjoining rooms but did manage to get us on the same floor. Good enough for us but lesson learned: include room preferences when booking, not when checking in.
The breakfast vouchers were for the buffet plus made-to-order eggs, though they also have a breakfast menu. The buffet was more than ample: scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, potatoes, fruit, hot and cold cereals, fruit, yogurts, a variety of breads, muffins, and bagels with the works.
Our rooms were clean and comfortable with plenty of room. Even though we were in a corner room not far from the elevators, it was very quiet. The girls' room, a double down the hall, seemed a bit larger, and was also very quiet.
Though short, we enjoyed this stop on our trip and would certainly stay at the Sheraton at the Capital again.
