If you're seeking an accessible room for business or personal travel, this Austin Hampton Is the best anywhere in the States! The room is beautiful with a great view of Austin from the 5th floor. Very spacious and beautifully decorated. Hotel staff are extremely helpful! Trip was too short, I wanted to stay longer!

I had a pleasant stay in Austin as the Hampton Inn & Suites. The hotel is very new and clean. It is located just a few blocks and a short walk from the University of Texas and the Texas State Capital. For those visiting or doing business at either place, the location is ideal. However, if you are looking to... More

Great hotel and in a fantastic location if you have kids that attend the University of Texas. The price is right for the convenience of being close to the city as well. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

The accommodations at the Hampton Inn & Suites Austin at The University/Capitol were tremendous. I stayed on the seventh floor. My room was quiet, incredibly spacious (the tall ceilings were a nice surprise), and well furnished. The room was equipped with a large desk, couch, chair, small kitchen area, and a HUGE flat screen TV. I would've been tempted to... More

I stayed a couple of nights at the Hampton Inn and would not do it again. Yes the hotel is overall nice (in a 2000's McMansion way: moldings, big chandeliers, etc. Very kitsch). But it is really expensive compared to other locations downtown. The breakfast is not great at all. And the gym is minimal. So, let's skip it until... More

This hotel is a great location for a college visit to University of Texas, Austin.

My girlfriends and I came down for a girls' weekend and stayed here. It was SO nice. The hotel staff were so nice and accommodating from the minute we got there. We LOVED the free breakfast - especially the Texas-Shaped Waffles! Great Location - very easy to get around downtown from this spot. Thanks - and we'll be back!
