Here is my review, The property was beautiful, front desk staff amazing , Bar in the lobby spot on My disappointment was the fine dinning downstairs at the very back of the restaurants area. The team member was young that is beside the point, I wanted a steak and opted for the pork chop I was single and alone. I asked if it was good she said yes however as a petite single woman she should have mentioned it was quite large will you be ok with this no communication Came back to table and said how do you like the size my eyes were so big. I had 3 bites and was completely done, next would have been was it ok for you I can see you did not finish much just said would you like me to box it up, why there is no microwave in room and it was obvious I did not like it. However I left politely with no comment. Then asked if I wanted desert so obviously there is no awarness of the customer The restaurant upstairs at the pool area beautiful sunset amazing where you can see the city lights was the strangest experience ever First young staff member again came up to no hello just a weird stare and said can I ask for your credit card number why would you ask that you have no idea if I am a guest you should always assume yes guest. Why credit card number I said I am a guest here he said ohh and walked away. Came back and I asked for a drink never got it waited waited nothing then the next guy came and asked for room number left young guy came asked for drink I said is this a joke

Always love staying at the Fairmont Austin, unfortunately this time the room wasn’t up to par when it came to cleanliness. Not a dealbreaker but they need to do better in the rooms before checking in new guests.
