I had to move to Homewood Suites in Round Rock which was a 30 minute commute to and from work as the Embassy Suites and other hotels in Austin were fully booked due to SXSW. Homewood Suites is an extended stay hotel that comes equipped with a kitchen. I was initially excited about the possibility of cooking but after 16 hour days, cooking was the last thing I wanted to do.
The Homewood Suites bed and pillows was one of the MOST comfortable beds I've slept on before. The bed was firm and comfortable while the pillows were fluffy. It was hard to get up every morning!
The only aspect of the room I did not like was the bathroom. It came with a tiny bathtub that was too small to sit in and I would have preferred a modern shower instead.
