Reviewed yesterday NEW

Fantastic central location, and in easy reach of everything, the Stephen F was the prefect choice for us. A pity that the Congress Avenue entrance is now the (separately owned, but very good) restaurant, and you therefore enter via a side street and its attendant building works. That aside, everything is pretty much perfect. We received a warm greeting at...

This was our hangout for SXSW movie premier before and after parties. The Paramount Theatre is next door. This is a historic hotel once called the Stephen F. Austin Hotel and the International Hotel still uses this name. The hotel was built in 1924 so expect tiny spaces but nowadays adds character. There is a nice staircase to the second...

I love this property. The staff is always knowledgeable, helpful, and accommodating. The location is great. When you stay at this hotel, you are within walking distance of so many wonderful things that Austin has to offer...especially the capitol!

Top shelf accommodations, great service, perfect location for downtown events. We went to the Paramount Theater next door to see Penn and Teller and while checking in, noticed Teller hanging out in the lobby on a sofa. Rooms comfortable and elegant, Roaring Fork restaurant excellent as well. Parking is Valet but we got a spot in a garage 1/2 block...

This is one of two Historic Properties in Austin Texas. I believe that it is listed with the Historic Hotels of America site also. It is a classic and elegant property walking distance to 6th Street and the State Capitol. This is a classic historic property with guest service second to none. In addition to elegant rooms and suites you...

Everything was in order. The room was clean, experienced and friendly staff, ambassador recognition, etc. Top floor room was nice as well to escape the noise from the street below. Looking forward to my next stay.

Beautiful hotel, throughout. Walking distance to everything. Best located hotel in the City. Food and Drinks are amazing and the 2nd floor terrace was wonderful. I loved the crystal clear pool and jacuzzi with piped in music - nice touches with the complementary fruit and cucumber infused ice water.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Keeping it weird in style ever since we opened in 1924, thanks to the people of Austin who funded our construction! When we opened we were the tallest building in Austin at 10 stories tall. We have gotten a little taller, 15 stories currently, but the city has grown up around us over the years making us a hidden gem in the heart of downtown. We are located 1 block from 6th street, 3 blocks from the Capitol and walking distance to all the activities that make Austin the amazing city that it is. If you are looking for the true experience of Texas and Austin book a room with us. ... more   less

“I wish some of the bathrooms could have more counter top space, but I like how the glass shelved tables have been placed in the rooms to make up for it. I realize this is a historic hotel and part of its charm is that all the rooms have a little something different to offer. However, the rooms with the large dressing tables in the bathrooms are my favorites!”

“They have construction on one side of the hotel so sometimes a bit noisy. Not hotels fault in any manner. Might think about being on the opposite side of construction.”
