Perfect stay in the heart of downtown Austin, very cool Hampton Inn - not like the traditional Hampton, it's a high rise with Austin modern-vibe design, large rooms, welcoming staff, self-parking that is much more reasonable than many other hotels in the area and FREE breakfast with healthy options and lots of selections. We loved the roof top pool and...

Great amenities wishing walking distance to any restaurant and bar in the downtown area, and just two blocks from UT campus. Rooms are...

This hotel exceeded our expectations. Very clean, tastefully decorated, with a great location just blocks from the concert we were attending at the Frank Erwin Event Center. The hotel staff was very friendly. We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a room with a king bed. The ceiling was high, which my wife loved. The sheets were clean and...

The hotel is located in a great spot if you need access to the Capitol or UT. The room was clean overall, but could have been a bit better. I had an adjoining room, and it sounded like the guests in the next room were standing next to me whenever they came anywhere near the door or their bathroom. Very...

Great looking hotel, close to the capitol and university. Easy access, Had a balcony with a great view. There are a couple of good restaurants very close by and if you feel like taking a short walk, there are many more available a couple blocks away on Guadalupe Street. You also have a CVS on the same street, so you...

My friends and I stayed at this hotel for a girl's night when we wanted to get out and have some fun. The location was perfect for getting to downtown restaurants and enjoying the Austin nightlife. When we got back to the hotel we were in the mood for some snacks before bed and the hotel has a little market...

I had a wonderful stay at this hotel with a group of friends for the weekend. The location is fantastic, right by campus and the capitol and an easy walk/fasten down to 6th street. The rooms are comfortable and the staff was wonderfully helpful and polite! I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend to friends!
