We stayed during SXSW and it was crazy downtown but the staff seemed very prepared. Ferhat was extremely helpful upon checkin and helped resolve a few of our issues. The valet staff was probably the best part of our stay. They made everything a breeze from the directions to helping us with luggage. We are not morning people but David's... More

We spent two nights recently for an event at the hotel on one evening. We had a king deluxe room, which was very spacious. Well-appointed and plenty of plugs for charging (though one by the bedside was not working). The gym was big and rather empty (but it was Saturday morning and the weather was beautiful). The website indicated it... More

I didn't like it that much, i think the prices for rooms are bit expensive and it's not worthy the prices the only good thing about it is the location, near the sixth street where all the fun. You can easily walk to that street or walk to the capitol.

Stayed here after a crazy South By Southwest expo. They put me in a nice suite on the 12th floor, with wrap around views of downtown Austin and the Capitol. Front desk service was first rate - friendly, knowledgeable, and very accommodating - they even arranged to store my left-over Rudy's BBQ in the fridge until my room was ready!... More

From the moment we arrived we were treated very well. The lobby is beautiful, the room was excellent & the bar was great. The view from the bar terrace up congress to the Capitol building is stunning.

I've stayed at the Intercontinental Stephen F Austin once a month (usually four nights each visit) for the past year. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are spacious. The waiter who takes care of me for breakfast is very professional and fast, catering to the short-on-time business traveler. The front desk is very friendly as well. My favorites... More

Beautiful hotel! Conveniently located and very friendly staff, especially Tammie Linden. I felt very well taken care of. The rooms were clean and spacious, it was very quiet (even during SXSW) and I would stay here again in a minute.

I have stayed at a few different Intercontinental hotels before but this one was different, not the usual like the others. It doesn't live up to the usual Intercontinental standards but in relation to Austin, it's not bad at all. I had a club room, which was spacious with a sitting area. The room was fine, nothing bad, nothing amazing.... More

had a great experience at this hotel. I was there for work, and while the hotel itself is lovely, the staff was terrific. Especially Tammie Linden who's attention to detail and level of service blew me away. Thanks Tammie!
