    Barton Creek in Austin - A Resort to Avoid

    My cousin recently got married. The hotel my aunt selected was Barton Creek in Austin. We had several Very Bad Experiences at this location. First for $285.00 (it's much more if you want to golf) a night, you expect competent help. They were not. Also my sister's car was robbed while in Valet Parking and among the items stolen was a PDA I've had for years. Beers were Five Bucks, water was eight Bucks. In short, this resort is a place to avoid. The Resort didn't replace my PDA (by the way) even after I wrote the Property Manager about it.

    How can Waterwood National be one of the best 2009 courses? I was notified that they had gone out of business and closed last year.

    The Bandit is super!
