The Residence Inn by Marriott is one of the few major hotels on the west side of Austin - hilly, wooded land bordering Austin Lake on the Colorado River. The all-suite/extended stay property is part of the River Place development, along Hwy 2222; 13 miles from the city center and 4.5 miles from Mansfield Dam. In the vicinity are a few shops, restaurants and other businesses, but most of the surroundings are quite thickly forested. The hotel contains spacious, nicely decorated suites in two bedroom, one bedroom and studio layouts, and all have a full kitchen. The usual range of Residence Inn features and facilities are provided, including free hot breakfast, free weekday evening receptions, a pool, barbecue area, business center and meeting space. The hotel opened late 2016.
