Hyatt Place Austin - North Central Hotel Review: The location of this hotel hits that Goldilocks middle area that can be just what many travelers are looking for. It’s north, great for proximity to the high-tech business sector, but not as far north as many locations catering to that demographic. Thus, the University of Texas and downtown Austin are less of a journey, though still distant enough to steer clear of so desired. The amenities are just what you’d expect from this reliable chain: comfortable rooms with space to spread out, and enough extras to make you feel pampered. Each room includes a “Cozy Corner” sitting area with an oversized sofa, a large desk area and a 42-inch flat-screen HD television with on-demand movies, games and music. Business travelers will appreciate the free Wi-Fi that includes wireless printing from your computer to the business center. If you’re less inclined to venture out for entertainment, the hotel should keep you adequately occupied between the 24/7 fitness center, swimming pool and 24/7 restaurant. A complimentary breakfast is also available, featuring signature breakfast sandwiches along with more traditional “continental” fare.
