Reviewed 25 September 2016

I stayed at the Hampton Inn University/Capitol for 3 nights in September 2016. I loved this hotel. Not only is this hotel nicer than any Hampton Inn I've ever stayed in, but it's nicer than most luxury hotels I've stayed in. And, I've stayed in luxury hotels in Miami Beach, Las Vegas, etc. For perspective, I used to work in...

I stayed here for only one night for a conference at UT. The room was nice, and it was clean. Also, it was quiet, so I could sleep regardless of what was happening on campus. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was very good. Complimentary breakfast includes eggs (several ways), breakfast meats, fruit, etc. in addition to...

Our suite was incredibly spacious and comfortable. The 5th floor pool with a view of the Texas Capitol was incredible. The breakfast was great and we were within walking distance of dining. The gym had what I needed and staff were very professional and helpful

This is a great hotel, the room was bet clean, the balcony had great views of the city, but once the door was closed it was extremely quit; you would not know that you were in the heart of the city and near a major university. I plan to return in the future.

Andrews, TX
Reviewed 11 September 2016

Stayed here for some court proceedings, and it was very quiet, in spite of being in a busy area. Huge bathroom, nice amenities, warm salt water pool with a view. Great hot breakfast, too. Staff was exceedingly friendly. Pillows smelled a bit musty, and parking is $20/night, which always rubs me the wrong way, but it was a nice stay....
