Not much within walking distance (just a walking trail into the woods)
Smallish outdoor pool lacks privacy and has cloudy water
Some rooms overlook the hotel's roof
Complaints that some rooms get noise from nearby interstate
This Hilton Garden Inn is a perfectly comfortable, reasonably priced option for travelers looking to stay in North Austin. You get what you'd expect from a run-of-the-mill chain: generic rooms, a cloudy outdoor pool, a small fitness room.
A run-of-the-mill chain far north of the city center
There's not much to wow at this perfectly adequate mid-range chain, located next to a highway in North Austin -- but not too much to offend, either. Rooms are generic, but have big flat-screen TVs, microwaves, and mini-fridges, and the lobby, despite its equally generic decor, is airy and pleasant, with high ceilings, fresh flowers, and a gas-burning fireplace. Overall, it's a fine, reasonably priced choice for travelers who don't mind driving to downtown Austin.
Just off Interstate 35, ten miles north of downtown Austin
The Hilton Garden Inn North is located on the frontage road parallel to I-35, in a business sector and near several other competing properties. There's a greenbelt directly behind the hotel, which adds a little serenity to its somewhat busy roadside location. The city's downtown core is a cab or car ride away.
