From check-in to check-out a seamless and pleasant stay. We had requested a suite with a balcony and we pleased with the high ceilings with great views of the capitol and Darrell Royal stadium. Easy walking distance (and we are not youngsters) to capitol and UT football stadium for the game (TCU 31 Texas 9 ). In summary if ever... More

The hotel was very clean and our room was immaculate. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The area is safe and far enough away from 6th street (where the bumbs will run you off even at 10:30 in the morning)! The viewm from our suite on the 8th top floor was amazing at night.

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.

I had to stay here because my usual hotel was all booked and I certainly did not expect to LOVE IT! It is new, clean, spacious! The food is great and the staff is friendly and helpful.

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.... More
