A lovely hotel in a convenient location in Austin. Stayed there for a conference for three nights and loved the feel of the place. Had some urgent work that I had to complete during my time in the hotel and Tammie in the business centre went out of her way to help me get it done in time - things... More

Had a beautiful suite with a view of the capitol building. The hotel is in a wonderful location. You can easily walk to some great bars and restaurants. The staff is very friendly and eager to please.

We spent 5 great days at the IC SFA. We had a top floor room and Club access, which we made much use of. The quality of the breakfast food that was included was actually some of the best hotel breakfast food I've had, and I stay in a LOT of hotels! And we very much enjoyed the afternoon and... More

The InterContinental was quite satisfactory. The staff was pleasant and helpful with restaurant recommendations and the room was adequate and comfortable. The best part of the InterContinental is the location--outstanding! It is close to restaurants, the state building, and nightlife; we were able to walk everywhere.

My wife and I stayed one night and while a nice hotel, it could have been much better considering the price. We stayed in the Intercontinental Club level for about $60 more per night, but it included welcome drinks and snacks and breakfast the next morning. Valet is $30 per night and although I understand there is not much parking... More

We stayed here for three nights over a weekend in Austin. The hotel has a great central location, close to 6th street and River street. You can walk nearly everywhere and there are plenty of decent restaurants close by. We had dinner one night in the hotel and that was good. The breakfast was fine. It is an old building... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel to attend a dear friends' wedding. The hotel itself is very beautiful and well maintained.

The hotel and F&B staff are outstanding. Upon check-in the guest services representative, Jamiliah Paschal took extra time to know me and understand my travel needs. She found out that I hadn't been to Austin for a number of years. Asked about any dining, entertainment and transportation needs and pointed me in the right direction. She was extremely helpful and... More

We spent 2 days in Austin in this great hotel. Friendly staff at the front desk and very kind concierge who gave us good advice for our trip to Fort Worth. Well located. Famous 6th street with blues music, bars etc... is 5 mn walk.
