We went to spend the night after a concert. The beds had comforters with no sheet to sleep under. Too cheap. Cheap looking toilet and sink barely drained after brushing teeth. Maybe made for stinky weird Austin hippies? No thanks. Not worth what they charge and 1/2 the streets in Austin are closed for one reason or another. Maybe an 8 year old runs this stupid town

One of my favorite hotels I've ever stayed in. The bath products and bed are wonderful, the staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and stylish. The sweatshirt-style bathrobe is inspired I never wanted to take it off! The only thing I wish they did differently was allow delivery people to come up to the rooms to hand off items (you have to come down instead)--very minor. Love love this hotel.

The Thompson is lovely, convenient for walking, and offers very good food options on site at Wax Myrtle and Grey Market. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The decor is very modern and very nice. Our issue was with bathroom lighting (absolutely not made to apply any type of make-up. A small or non-issue for many, but for those of us who apply just mascara - it's a struggle!) and the noise level of the a/c. It was really loud. It did do a great job of cooling our room, which was much appreciated in low 90's temps, but a bit more insulation in the panel to the unit would make a world of difference. If you are looking to stay in a central location, at this price point, with access to many, many food and drink options it's great! (And as it's failrly new to the area these are issues that may be in the works for correcting.)
