No room service, but lots of restaurants within walking distance. Other than that, the staff and the accommodations were really excellent.. especially for the money. The front desk staff are super friendly and helpful.. will definitely be staying there on my next trip to Austin.

Very friendly staff and good service. Austin is not that big so it is relatively not far from downtown. walking distance to the university campus and capitol building. I love the breakfast. Packing is kind of on the expensive side $21+.

The friendly, energetic and professional young staff at this Hampton Inn really made it a pleasant place to stay--they were always quick to greet guests with a smile, and had good advice about local restaurants and attractions.

Recently I stayed at Hampton Inn downtown Austin, it was very nice and clean. Staff was friendly but not always available, when I got there to check in I stood at the front for 5-8 minutes waiting for someone to come to the deck. It wasn't like I was early or late, it was 2:45 in the afternoon. I had...

Traveled to Austin over Spring Break to visit the capitol and museums. This hotel is a 10 minute walk to the capitol, and a 5 minute walk to the Bob Bullock Museum, so we never had to worry about driving and parking in downtown Austin- we just left the car in the hotel's secure parking garage which was so nice...

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.

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.
