This place was great and def plan on staying here again. It’s technically an apartment not a Hotel. Not going to lie, we were a bit confused on how to get around and even got stuck in the elevator but that was our mistake for not reading the instructions properly.

All I have are great things to say about The Guild! Parking garage connects to the elevators for easy access into the building. Check in was so easy, after reserving my suite I got a text message 20 minutes after with all the information needed to get to my room. There is always someone available to text or call and they were so helpful with all my questions. My room was on the 16th floor and had a beautiful view of Austin. The hotel was very clean and had everything one needs for a vacation. I would highly recommend staying at The Guild and I will be sure to return myself!

Check-in was delayed for over 4 hours and we were one of three couples that were in Austin celebrating a birthday. Needless to say, this was not how we had hoped our celebration to begin. Check-in begins at 3 pm. We did not arrive at our room until after 7 pm. Communication sucked and was via text. Finally received a phone call from management and we were given the room at a discount. Unfortunately, the domino effect had already taken effect and everything that had been planned for the evening had to be adjusted or canceled. But here is your measly discount. Sorely disappointed!!! Oh, and the reason for the delay was that they had only "one" housekeeper cleaning every room. Seriously? Thank you, next...be forewarned, look elsewhere to stay. There are several hotels in this area that are skyscrapers that offer more amenities and are less expensive. Don't waste your time here.

Condo apartment in the Center of Austin

Pros: Everything was very clean. The staff who are around during the day was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: The view is great, but they had these uncomfortable metal chairs and there was no table on the balcony. An instruction book would be helpful ie TV.
Location: Austin City Limits just around the corner, short walk to the river trail. Kayak rentals nearby. The neighborhood restaurants were outstanding.
There is no front desk everything is done by phone text messages. You get your entrance codes, and room code etc. all just at the right time. It actually works quite well. The rooms have polished concrete floors and it is bit cold feeling. The kitchen was well equipped and they had a set of condiments, which I typically don't see. I really appreciated the high-quality blender and coffee maker, not the usual junk typically found in a rental. The unit has a washer and dryer and they provided soap for the washer. They had a very nice pool area with two workout rooms. One work out studio provided big screen TV with a whole set of workouts.
