My husband and I were hoping to have a relaxing time by the pool for our anniversary weekend and were greatly disappointed We almost got charged to enter the rooftop pool area (Waterproof) until we showed the staff our wristbands (they didn’t even ask if we had any, they just automatically told us it would be $25 to enter) Honestly, not sure the point of the wristbands though because the pool was completely packed, and you had to reserve/pay for seating near it

We decided to try the other pool which A) turns out to be the actual hotel guest pool and B) we only knew existed because our room was facing it I’m not sure which pool was worse? This was basically an apartment complex pool: lounge area, plenty of seating and cabanas (that’s a plus), a covered area for grilling (?), no bar/service, no view, they were out of towels, and you lose sun at like 3:30pm I politely informed the front desk we were not expecting this and that I didn’t see any events listed on the hotel site prior to booking We are obviously stuck there now for 2 nights and it was too late to book something else… I was told that this is a “public hotel,” that it’s “packed almost every weekend” and the events aren’t posted on the site because they are not sponsored by the hotel I was told there wasn’t really anything to be done about it but they would have the manager contact me That was Saturday, I have not yet heard from them We ended up checking out early and purchasing resort passes to The Omni’s pool

First, the good: Very nice hotel Very clean, great amenities, and overall a fun vibe Location was very convenient too

The bad: the parking is a bit of a walk and it’s not easy to be able to park by the lobby to get your bags in without having to haul them in from the far away parking lot Overall I’d stay again, but the parking thing is definitely good to know

Brynn Smith

This has been one of the most impressive Hilton stays we’ve had in a while I’d compare it to the service we have received at the Conrad in DC

Check-in process was fluid Since we are Diamond members we were given a great room upgrade, bottled water, and chocolate bars by Luis who was very welcoming He was very thorough in explaining all that the Statler had to offer from restaurants to amenities The room provided the perfect getaway we envisioned I always base my opinion of where we stay on three things: The bathroom, the view, and the quality of sleep The bathroom shower and tub were amazing! Great water pressure! The bed was one of the few hotel beds that I’ve found myself wanting to sleep in on So comfortable! Dallas isn’t too far from where we live, but we will definitely return for a stay-cation in the future!

Feedback From Real Customers


Beautiful, although the room we got was quite small (and the price was very high), with wonderful amenities and highly professional staff Romantic upscale atmosphere and exceptionally cleanThe self-parking situation was slightly confusing at first and we encountered several issues with their payment system for the parking deck (including at least one too many “overnight parking” charges)The infinity pool was absolutely one of the highlights of this hotel, it was HUGE with the perfect view of the hotel and Dallas skyline

It was breathtaking, just a little overcrowded when we went (around 9pm)All in all, it was a gorgeous experience and I believe it was fairly priced for what you get Worth it if you’re trying to decide where to stay in Dallas

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your hotel This web site will compare hundreds of booking websites and normally will have rates much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This hotel is one of the most well known in this area

I’ve been staying here for years If you stay for a few nights you won’t be disappointedFrom the time we arrived at the place and service was awesome! Everybody was extremely friendly and helpful The rooms were very clean spacious and nice! We spent some time at the pool it was a great place to be and hang out We will definitely stay here again!

John Crenshaw Jr.

Rooms are cozy; outlets are positioned inconveniently but doable; self parking is tight and tricky; location is convenient, elevators are fast and secure but can become crowded during seminar/convention season Toilet/sink water pressure for the room I had at the time was low but shower pressure was good Love the “card key in the slot near the door for power” feature

Advice: bring your own water/snacks Good hotel overall

Incredible views, nicely kept stellar rooms, glass elevators, dining and more will be found here at this beautiful downtown Dallas location We stayed in room 1056 which has beautiful views of the city during the day, and the coolest lit hotels at night! The Hyatt Regency is a beautiful hotel The atrium leading down to the Texas Star is a site to see

Our room was clean and the restrooms were freshly caulked Rooms contain an iron, refrigerator, and hand held driers A microwave can be found downstairs, but are not in individual rooms The mirrors and lights are beautiful and provide indirect lighting for each guest room The Reunion Tower is gorgeous to view or to go up into and see the best views in Dallas, especially at night This hotel offers a variety of conference rooms for all kinds of meetings and events From ballrooms to basic meeting rooms this hotel has it all Beautiful lights and chandeliers are seen around this hotel Certainly worth a visit Up to date and beautiful hotel


This is by far my worst hotel experience The hotel may sit in downtown but there are no restaurants, shops, etc located around the hotel

It sits off in its own little corner Part of the excitement and appeal to staying downtown was the access to explore My fault on choosing this locationSecondly, I paid a large amount to valet only to wait forever for access to my vehicle Ultimately, I had to ask for my keys and go get my own car Now, understand the expense of self-parking vs valet is not a huge difference so why not benefit from valet The room service was not accessible, as neededThirdly, the room is old and furniture is worn Items are not clean The list could go on After a long day of traveling this is not what I wanted to walk in to Overall, I will not return to this hotel One stay is more than enough!

Elmer Boutin

I stayed at the Hyatt for an event that was being held at the hotel It was mostly quite positive with one negativeFirst the good: The people were wonderful and very helpful

There was a nice variety of restaurants, and even the food choices at the event were very good The rooms were quite nice, very clean and had a great view to the south overlooking the freeways (which I prefer to just looking at buildings) The HVAC system was pretty good, keeping the room cool There was also plenty of hot waterOne downside to the rooms: The vinyl covering around the bed frames and on the walls above the beds were dry rotted and flaking Every night before bed I had to sweep the flakes of vinyl that were all over the nicely made bed That really detracted from my experience I would have given 5 stars if it weren’t for that

Very friendly and convenient location on the San Antonio Riverwalk Easy access to the Alamo on one side and the Riverwalk on the other They actually have their own river going through the middle of the hotel! Parking is about $60 per night valet or around $50 a night self Park

The hotel is very clean and roomy You cannot beat the location What’s most outstanding about this hotel was in the planning stages they actually did a shadow test to ensure the building would not cast a shadow upon the Alamo!

Mary blades

One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in! The staff are so friendly and down to earth I was so stressed from our trip but having a helpful concierge and bellhop on arrival made the price so worth it! The hotel is beautiful and filled with little luxuries everywhere I have the room with a view of the Riverwalk and it is truly magnificent to wake up to in the morning

My girls love the rooftop pool and quick access to the Riverwalk The hotel made our vacation a getaway For these reasons I give this hotel five stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Jessica Merczak

The location of the hotel is great I had a room with a fantastic view of the AlamoPROS: Location was at the heartbeat of activities

Easy access to everything Nice sized room with comfortable beds Fairly quiet, even by the elevator Excellent service Lovely, rooftop pool (not a lap pool, more for hanging out) Walk out to river Handy shops Clean Outdoor and indoor seating SafeCONS: this could be due to construction, but no full length mirrors Coffee maker was shockingly hard to figure out (may have been broken) Only 1 drawer and insufficient length for hanging clothes without touching the bottom Only an open clothing rack- no closet or dresser, and limited hangers Definitely noise due to the construction, but not too early or too late

We had a wonderful stay! We were celebrating my daughters graduation with a Mother, Daughter weekend It was so special! The hotel, the grounds, the room, the pool, the food; everything was perfect! The staff were awesome Elvis was so friendly and remembered us our entire trip

He was so kind and truly loved his job! It was an amazing, relaxing and memorable trip! We can’t wait to come back

Katie Hernandez

This place was amazing The service was incredible It was so relaxing, ELVIS was amazing!! He makes you feel like you are staying at a 5star resort, he’s so personable! We would gladly return for a girls getaway! I was having the worst month, personally going through a lot

And I came here and was able to finally breathe again and enjoy myself I will gladly return here again

Mark Amdahl

Our stay here was during off season, so the restaurant was relatively quiet, but they made us comfortable and let us sit outdoor on the deck where we could enjoy the gorgeous view of the sunset on the water Amazing! The food was delicious and my steak was cooked perfectly But the real highlight was the incredible service and attention we received

The manager Bai (not sure if I am spelling that correctly) was gracious,helpful, and attentive Our server Armand was so warm, personal and kind They really made the atmosphere and the experience quite special

This hotel is absolutely amazing It’s one of the best Marriotts I have stayed at! My dad is an Elite member, so we were able to use their breakfast area The food was absolutely amazing

They have a Starbucks coffee maker! The room we stayed in was super clean The pool area is beautiful, and it’s super cool because it’s got a little waterfall on the end that you can look over The restaurant in the hotel had amazing service, and super good food The Red Snapper tacos were amazing! Definitely a worthwhile stay! Thank you to the staff for making our stay so enjoyable!

Ron Woodrich

No complaints about this hotel at all Check in process was painless, room was clean with no surprises Fitness center was much better then expected

Multiple treadmills, peloton bikes, multiple free weights, weight machines, and moreDid not try the pool but looked nice Restaurant in the hotel had a great menu and several folks I was traveling with enjoyed it

Tavia Mack

This hotel was Ah-mazing! The staff was very polite, the ambiance was delightful and the grounds itself was impeccable I really enjoyed my stay here, it was definitely worth the money Although we didn’t get the lake view from our room, it was still pleasurable to walk the grounds

The only con is that the bed wasn’t as comfortable for my back as I liked but sddi g some pillows made it better Thus is one of those hotels where what you see is what you get when viewing rooms online Great place to stay I will be back!

The stay was great We went as a family of 4 the pool is more a lounge area definitely not for kids The kids did enjoy the ping pong table and giant connect 4

The seating by the pool is fist come first serve There are seating areas you have to pay Parking is also an additional cost The room and view were amazing I recommend this place for all adults not so much family with kids under 14

José Francisco Pereira da Silva de Pádua

One issue:Great location, modern, beautiful, upscale hotel Quiet large room, with beautiful view, giant window and of course, with in-room safe Helpful staffGreat gymThe hotel’s minibar is small and full of expensive items

TAKE CARE:Fridge has a motion sensor for items If you are not going to use it and pay high prices, do not even open the fridge I had problems They write a notice on the door of the mini fridge, which is not very clear They should let you know at check-in and with large letters on the cabinet where the minibar is, to avoid unpleasant situations for those who are innocently curious to see what is in the minibar or try to keep something They should change the minibar policy to avoid this type of problem that I know is common in the hotelBut I informed the hotel immediately, after checking the minibar and they didn’t charge They also brought an empty minibar for free to store products

John Leger

Great stay at The Westin downtown Austin It was very busy so we waited in the bar for an hour or so Had a great time talking with the bartender who was excellent

When our room was ready we were very pleasantly surprised at the wonderful room upgrade It was worth the extra wait for sureAs busy as they were, the service was top notch From the front desk, the bar and at breakfast everyone we talked with was excellentMy only complaint would be that the poor flags on the front of the hotel were in very sad shape Please change those, our country and our veterans deserve it

Jeffrey Taylor

Great location and good basic rooms good for a business or quick leisure stay Housekeeping service inconsistent/unclear — had to ask for rooms to be cleaned for half of my six day stay with no clear policy Gym is nice and new, but a glass prism in hot weather

Great location, but beware it is loud on weekends and one night the noise from the roof leaked all the way down to my room about ten floors down (TVs having a white noise channel should be a hint)

Jennifer Molder

Great friendly service, very nice rooms I booked this hotel because I wanted a nice pool with a bar to spend the day at I was very disappointed that there were no umbrellas and nowhere to escape the brutal sun

Even the private cabanas have pergola roofs and do not provide shade The pool was small, crowded, and could have used a good cleaning

We had the most wonderful time celebrating a birthday here Ricky the porter and Chris the concierge are both so sweet and helpful They had the most upbeat welcoming energy

We opted for a massage at the spa and Jasmyn gave me the best massage I’ve ever had Even the assets protection man we ran into in the elevator asked what they could do better This entire team strives for excellence and succeeds Already planning a return visit Was sad to leave

Patrick Caffey

Hotel was very nice Rooftop pool was great nice to have drinks close by with the roof top cafe The food was great up there

Spa was very nice and pleasant would definitely recommend going thereThe rooms tho were just ok I thought for the price it would be a little nicer A/C wasn’t cold, the ceiling fan worked half the time, and the button on the jacuzzi tub was missing

Jodi Wishart

I had 2 rooms – king river walk view and double non view The hotel needs some love, but the staff make up for it They are wonderful people!This is a busier part of the river walk but a short walk to the quiet areas

The 800 reservation line does match the guest service of the hotel If you have any questions, call the hotel directlyThe character of the hotel was a factor in choosing it And character takes time and people to keep up It needs more love and care and we are all stretched thin It was clean – tattered but clean I know the “details” of most things have been sacrificed in our collective mess of the last few years

Devin Alsobrook

I have mixed feelings about this hotel because of two small things that made a big impact on me Here’s the good firstGood:-Very, very clean-Super nice staff

One of them noticed my toddler frowning and rushed to offer her a glow stick It worked! She was smiling again in seconds-Love the balcony option The view was great!-The rooftop bar was coolBad:-The cable on the TV was messed up leaving us very few channels to watch without a working TV guide and they didn’t have smart TVs which seems pretty lame for a hotel at this price point I’ve had nicer TVs at a Garden Inn This seems petty but I really wanted to watch TV-The bed was so hard that I woke up 6 times in the night uncomfortable and clutching at pillows to tuck under myself

Launi Stoepel

I really wanted to love our one night stay here, but some significant issues left us unable to feel that wayPros — Valet service is EXCELLENT! Extremely friendly, kind and accommodating I cannot recall the name of our valet when we stayed, but that man can work with people unlike anyone I have ever seen

What an absolute gem!- Stylish & comfortable! Great aesthetic and design, timeless and modern without being overly style Bed was delightful and AC in room worked perfectly!-Plenty of space! Our room had lots of storage surfaces and areas, very well done!-Excellent location! Located centrally near plenty of resources-Very dog friendly! Love the nearby dog park and the strip of grass immediately outside of the front entrance for taking pets for walks-Staff! Overall very friendly and helpful!Cons — No Hot Water In the less than 24 hours we were here, we never had true *hot* waterit only just got warm enough to be tolerable for a REALLY quick shower, and nothing more We could not figure it out and did not have time to ask the front desk to change rooms or to have someone try to fix it Huge disappointment considering just how muggy it was outside resulting in us needing to shower several times during our stay-Dirty room Visible stains on carpet and chaise lounger, splatter marks on floor around the toilet Unfortunately, I dropped something in the shower that got lodged between the piece of tile that covers the drain and the wallI had to pry that cover up and it was my biggest regret because it immediately became apparent that housekeeping DOES NOT clean that part and it was repulsive with all of the hair and goodness knows what else lodged in it and under it Nightmare material-Low Quality Fixtures & Finishes Handheld shower did not stay in place and kept spinning and falling each time we turned it onresulting in getting soaked while fully dressed Sliding door between bedroom and bathroom/entry area seems to stick/be jammed and was very difficult to maneuver-Refrigerator Did Not Refrigerate Loved the concept of the pull-out/drawer fridge, however, did not love that it did not keep our items truly coldonly just barely cooler than room temp We did not feel safe eating the leftovers we had stored in because it was so “warm”-Front Desk Unable to Meet Request We requested a room as far away from the elevator as possible, and instead were given the room closest to it Very light sleepers and did not enjoy this aspectOverall a decent stay, but maintenance and housekeeping need to step it up in my opinion We hope to visit in the future and be able to entirely enjoy our stay in each aspect!

Kim Davitt

Great staff Especially Stacey the valet/ porter Actually everyone was friendly and helpful

Decor and design were very cool and refreshing for a hotelFront desk and valet staff were EXCEPTIONAL, very nice and helpful when you have questionsFood was great, we ate breakfast and I loved my blueberry pancakes They have quite a nice menu with lots of great optionsCons:We had an unprofessional experience with a staff member at the pool and we notified the front desk of the situation Pool area is on the small side so get there early to reserve a lounge seatThe design is nice but minimalist, the decor looks great but there is no storage for putting clothes away The bathroom in our room was smaller(one vanity) and did not have many amenities (shave kit for men, no make up mirror, qtips etc)Overall a great modern place to stay Expect to pay $$$ for meals and drinks and the vibe is more hip and on trend than low key

This was an amazing boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Austin The bar and the service was absolutely amazing An incredible social experience one has to come and see

Service was top-notch from the valet to the front desk The atmosphere is warm and inviting The decor is stunningly well done Will definitely stay here again when I have some more time in Austin


I don’t understand the high rates of this hotel other than being downtown The valet staff was less than professional The front desk staff was exceptional

The rooms were nicely furnished, but for the money nothing special The bar downstairs was so packed that it was impossible to get a drink and more impossible to enjoy the drink in a relaxing enjoyable sitting Perhaps I wasn’t “cool” enough to fit the 28 to 40 crowd who were still in the “i need to impress you” categoryThe restaurants were OK I think but I am not into middle eastern cuisine in a hotel restaurant and I sure am not going to pay Proper rates for Mexican food in the other restaurant when I can find some really good Mexican food for 100% less elsewhereGive me back the “keep Austin weird” vibe and I will be back, but not before

I can’t say enough about this hotel The location is within walking distance of a restaurant strip! The view is so serene and beautiful! The Manager on Sunday was absolutely 💯 fabulous He made sure that our stay was great and willing to help anyway possible

Everyone there from the front to the resturant was fabulous The breakfast was fantastic and we also enjoyed the 2 complimentary alcoholic beverages we received at the evening reception, as well as a few light snacks The infinity pool was very nice and the rooms were extremely nice with a large bedroom, separated living area, and bathroom and we had a walk around balcony 😀 Our experience at The Embassy in Woodland for Father’s Day, was an excellent, pleasant, & serene stay! We loved it and will be back!

Perfect for a last minute staycation with my family If you book and check-in via the app like I did, still go to the front desk to get your key (you’ll need it for the parking garage) and you happy hour card The entire staff I encountered including the front desk associates , bartenders and servers were all very knowledgeable and friendly

The breakfast was delicious The drinks and appetizers at happy hour were great also I will definitely book this location again


Nice, clean and spacious hotel Check in was fast and easy Our room was comfortable and roomy

Everything worked as it should Water pressure is light, but I’m ok with saving water The thermostat ran very cold, but it’s Houston so I’m not going to complain Breakfast was pretty good Lots of decent options, though their eggs were a bit on the over-processed side The location is very good with groceries and restaurants nearby I reserve 5 stars for the high-end hotels, but I had a nice experience and would have no problem staying here again

Gorgeous property! We had a wonderful family trip to visit and had 5 room – they places us all on the same floor which was great! My husband and I had a corner deluxe king room and it was beautiful One evening I took advantage of the soaking tub and even had a great view of fireworks happening over the city! We enjoyed the pool, the food and the area Plenty of amenities inside the hotel but also within walking distance

Dana Pollard Moving Up in Texas

Just stayed here while enjoying a date night with my husband I love the view overlooking the big screen at The Star! It was nice not having to get in a car to enjoy some (sports) shopping and dining because everything was walkable The hotel is very clean and the staff, particularly Jean, was very accommodating and friendly

Thank you Omni!

Gorgeous huge rooms, comfy beds and beautiful lobby Incredible front desk staff Took 15 minutes to collect baggage they stored for me after checkout but they were extremely nice to keep the baggage without creating a hassle

The receptionist is who checked me in was warm and inviting Definitely recommended if you have to be in the area for business A few good restaurants are within walking distance

This hotel is AMAZING! Wow From the valet parking team opening and closing the door for us with a big smile, to the receptionist explaining everything, letting us know about the great restaurants and walking us to the elevator AlsoJose, our kind and helpful bellman showing us the room, lights, speaker system, etc

We also had the pleasure to meet one of the housekeepers, getting our room ready with slippers and chocolates She was so kind and made sure we had everything we needed… lastly we ordered room service and Leah was very sweet, presented our absolutely delicious dinner Even the water on the flowers vase was cold Bravo for your attention to details, taste to classy luxury high end finishes Fantastic Experience! Spotless and impeccable hotel from A to Z

My original 1star review was for the reservations department I was so happy to find out that person wasn’t actually working at the property

My stay was nothing less than amazing from start to finish! The customer service was unmatched! The pool area is beautiful and they even have a hot tub which was a pleasant surprise I just checked out and I’m already ready to go back! It was definitely the best 5 star hotel I’ve stayed in No complaints at all! I would give a 10 star review if I could

Trisha Narinesingh

Post Oak Hotel is stunning! It was my first time staying overnight and it was everything the website shows you The arrival experience was good; valet was professional, quick and courteous The room was gorgeous, clean, and there was so much attention to detail

The bathroom and all the marble made it so luxurious and relaxing The room was also equipped with speakers throughout the room to enjoy The beds were actually very comfortable and pillows were perfect We had a nice view and enjoyed the entire space The hotel staff and concierge were so polite and friendly We asked for a mini fridge for the room and they delivered it so quickly This was an excellent stay and experience

This hotel is nice It’s quaint and very stylish for the age that it is Check in was fine

Pool is refreshing and a decent size That being said, our biggest concern was that our TV didn’t work in the hotel room When we called someone to come look/fix it NO ONE came We waited 40 minutes until we called the front desk to cancel the service since it was late at night When we informed the front desk at checkout about the issue all we received was a ‘sorry’

Mary Endress

The pool was great The pool beverage attendant was awesome as she helped out with a cigar smoker whose cigar was impeding my ability to breathe The check in was not so good as my husband was informed that the third party had over booked and we couldn’t have the room he booked

They put us in a room which was not ready for guests as the door doesn’t stay closed when you leave the room This is a safety issue When leaving, we had to continually slam the door maybe 10 times for it to catch and remain closed The manager spoke condescendingly to my husband and indicated we were lucky to get a room since he booked on a third party site To me guests should be secure in their rooms no matter how you book your stay So pool and restaurant service great Restaurant lunch food and pool food is great The dinner food was not so good, but the hotel had 2 wedding receptions at the same time I have been coming to this hotel for many years I was very disappointed this time with management hiding behind renovation excuses


Although the hotel is under renovation, we still had a really fantastic time I don’t believe that alone is reason to give them less stars Staff was very friendly and requests were simple to make, and were also tended to

The changes are beautiful Construction workers are going at it tirelessly so I imagine it could be done in a couple of months Comfortable bed, clean sheets, plenty of towels and amenities The pool and hot tub were fantastic, towels were regularly restocked and the other guests were not a bother to share space with Bicycle rentals were easy and enjoyable They could update the bikes but still, no complaints here!

Unfortunately the front hotel rooms are not really cold and my A/C did not work , I called front desk but they only offered a fan, never to move my room until the 3rd day of sleeping in the hot room, I had to remind them to send someone to fix the A/C on the second day, they came but could not fix On the third day they moved me to the larger hotel in the rear and that room was nicer and the A/C worked Would have been nice to be moved as soon as I arrived

Over all the hotel resort is nice The water park is nice And Yes I am a diamond member so they could have been moved sooner Probably wouldn’t stay there again, next time I’ll chose a different hotel since we travel for work often

john Tolbert

I stayed here for a convention The convention itself was good However, the hotel is a large facility that is very dark and cavernous

I stayed for 2 nights and never had any warm water for a shower and the staff was not overly helpful or friendly In fact, housekeeping never cleaned my room even after multiple requests For the money, I would recommend staying somewhere else

Nic Mac

The hotel lobby is quite lovely A lot of beautiful sculptures and greenery Some tranquil sitting areas surrounded by flowing water and beautiful plants

A very vibrant, beautiful light sculpture hangs from the ceiling illuminating the dark hallways on the way to the rooms Once inside the room however, leaves something less than to be desired I’ve seen and slept in way more beautiful and comfortable rooms at 25 star hotels for a fraction of the cost I had an exhausting day upon my check in, and I did so around midnight- there was a long, slow line with maybe 2 or 3 employees working to get everyone checked in and on their way One thing that I thoroughly do not agree with, and believe that for the amount of money I’m paying to stay at this hotel, the least they could provide is free parking for paying guests I paid $25 for 8 hours of parking In my absolute honest opinion, unless you’re here to vacation at their summer water resort, take your money elsewhere
