Great location, walking distance to the stadium, close to capital, very easy to get to every place in Austin you need to go. Will stay here every time I travel to austin from now on. Upscale hotel without the pricetag.

Walking distance from museum, state capital and restaurants. In the middle of the city. Easy access to so many trade mark Austin favorites. Most were just a few minutes away. In addition to a lovely delicious breakfast for kids and adults alike.

Excellent staff and service, rooms are a bit small. Parking charges, wall heat/air conditioners and shower curtains are always received poorly by us. The location is good, near Bullock Museum and Capitol building.

We loved our big room with a view of the pool. The hotel was great like all the experiences we have had on our trip with Hampton Inn. When we arrived they couldn't find our reservation but the guys at front desk sol ed it quickly. Also, there is about a 30 minute walk or taxi to 6th street.

This was my first stay at a Hampton Inn, but will not be my last. Very clean, modern. One of the best complimentary breakfasts I've had at a chain restaurant - freshly cooked scrambled eggs and flavored creamers. Comfortable seating. There were 3 of us and we were comfortable with the space in the room. The beds were very comfortable....

The staff was very accommodating in making sure everything was taken care of for us. We arrived early on a University of Texas game day and there was, of course, no parking. The manager escorted us to the overflow parking and personally moved the cones for us to park.
