Expert Review

Expect the unexpected at this eco-conscious hotel property. Though located across the street from a mall parking lot, it's one of the greenest hotels in Austin; the pool is cleansed with an ionized water system instead of chlorine, over 20% of its energy is provided through solar power, and paths to the suites are dotted with vegetable and herb gardens. The view of the parking lot and mall are blocked by strategically placed shrubs and fencing, so guests rarely see an expanse of asphalt from the rooms and paths. Each of the 96 one- and two-bedroom suites is equipped with a kitchenette, a seating area, and separate bedrooms with king-size beds - and, incredibly, 72 of the rooms have fireplaces. Other pleasantly surprising amenities include free WiFi in all rooms and a full breakfast buffet that always includes one macrobiotic or vegan choice.
