Lovely visit !

My son and I were traveling and decided to stay a few days in wonderful Austin. We just happened to drive by "The Mansion". Breathtaking! There just happened to be availability. The staff was very accomodating and we were shown to beautiful rooms. Extremely clean and nicely appointed. Can't wait to return!
