Hotel was very clean and staff very friendly, we were met with smile each time we came through the door. Within waling distance to the Capitol and other places of interest. Staff was on hand to give directions and additional info on Austin. We were very pleased and will stay here our next trip to Austin!

The room was not what I saw in the pictures of Trip Advisor. At night, it had a smell of fried food, eventhouth we did not have a kitchen neither food inside. In the morning the sound outside was really loud!

This is a very comfortable, clean and well ran hotel. Because of it's location you have to pay extra for parking, that is the only drawback but the stay here makes whatever they charge you feel well worth it. The bed, the bedding, towels, linens in general were all soft, comfortable, heavenly. It is the kind of hotel where you...

Dear sweatinginhouston1, Thank you so much for the ringing endorsement! I am very glad you found our hotel to be the kind of place where you can just "hang around in bed watching tv all day," perhaps while enjoying our amazing views of the Capitol Building! I certainly understanding that the downtown parking rates are a bit of a drawback,...

We stayed at Hampton because of our HHonors and the free breakfast. Knowing downtown Austin is busy, the breakfast helped us stay on schedule without having to get into traffic. The underground parking was safe and convienent. The decor of the hotel stayed true to "Keep Austin Weird", but was classy all the same.

Wasn't expecting a hotel this nice. I wish it had been sometime besides February as the pool area was beautiful with great views. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. I actually enjoyed relaxing at breakfast which doesn't happen often. Would highly recommend this hotel as convenient to UT and the state Capitol. There was a little Mexican restaurant across the street...

This is a terrific and friendly hotel with nice music-themed lobby decor. Perfect for visiting UT. The rooms, beds, breakfast and overall experience were better than expected for a mid-level chain hotel.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was close to capital and a short drive to Saint David's Hospital. The hotel is nice but the price seemed high. They also charged for parking.... which seemed over priced too. Other than over priced... the hotel was nice. One morning my shower had no hot water... only warm.
