My husband and I stayed the long weekend and everything seemed great at first until the music started pounding louder and louder at night. I am a light sleeper and this was unbearable 😫. I loved indigo in new orleans but sadly, will not be staying here again. On a positive note, the staff was really nice and the room was clean.

They were also very good at explaining how the systems work and what I should do to have a smoother stay next time at any IHG hotel. Thanks to them IHG has a new lifelong customer. Thank you to them and all the other staff working during this week. Y'all have an incredible summer and see you around! - Ray Read less

Stayed here for five nights to visit family members who live in Round Rock. The check in staff were very nice and efficient and our suite was ready as soon as we arrived mid-day. The suite was spacious and comfortable with very good air conditioning. It was nice to have a refrigerator in the room and there is a microwave in the lobby if you need it. The hotel shares a large pool with the adjacent Holiday Inn. We wanted to try out the pool bar but it was rarely open. The wifi signal is TERRIBLE at the hotel and I had to use my iPhone as a hotspot to get any work done. It is a few blocks from 6th Street which didn't have much to offer. Much more fun options in the South Congress area. Housekeeping is upon request. You can call the front desk and they will bring up fresh towels or any other items you need. They didn't have bottled water in the room which was a surprise since we booked a suite. There are several music clubs nearby so ask for a room facing the pool and not the street so you can get a better night's sleep. The gym was spacious and bright and well appointed. Very convenient for getting to and from AUS airport. Read less

Hotel is nice but the loud guests and pounding music next door do not make for a good nights sleep. I understand the hotel cannot control outdoor music but the hotel needs better windows. We were up until close to 2 am because of the loud bass at the club across the street.
