Five minutes ago I had no idea I was coming, so I'm in a real hurry. I have to go home to have someone locked up that's become a real danger to my 76 year old grandmother. Any help would be very grateful and I will never forget it.

Thank You.

I've stayed at the Radisson before, and I've sent friends to the Embassy Suites. Both were reasonably priced IIRC.

Let us know if you need anything. There's a couple dozen of us here in Austin.
