This is a really nice hotel, more like a Ritz Carlton or JW Marriott property than typical Hampton Inn. The rooms are well appointed, very comfortable beds, clean and super quiet. The breakfast is much more extensive than I expected and the eggs, well, tasted like eggs! Good equipment in the fitness center and clean. Staff was also very helpful... More

A reasonably priced downtown hotel option, recently renovated with nice modern looking rooms, plus an extensive breakfast buffet selection included in the nightly rate. An underground parking garage (very important for anyone with a car downtown) is also available for an additional nightly fee. The rooms are spacious and if you pay for a balcony and stay on the 2nd... More

Excellent service; front desk staff was helpful and friendly. Good location near capital building. Very comfortable bed. View of capitol building - (at some upper floor rooms.) Complimentary breakfast bar can be crowded during prime-time; but good food and selection for a hotel breakfast bar.

We stayed in Rm 201 the night before last. If you get a chance, get one of the corner rooms like we got. (Just check your ice bucket for candy wrappers lol; it didn't bother us) incredibly HUGE balcony and suite big enough for a small party! Very tall ceilings and windows with beautifully modern decor. Neat hotel. Very artistic.... More

What a great night's sleep. Beds were amazing, staff was awesome and location was on time! In town for a UT college tour and questions with my son. Also, stayed for The Black Keys concert at Frank Erwin center, which was only 3 blocks away. Also great carnitas taco's at the El Mercado, just across the street. Great visit, wonderful... More

Hampton University Campus, Austin is an Oasis of comfort and tranquality, near University Campus and Capitol and a pleasant walk away from downtown. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the room was of high standard and very comfortable. I enjoyed the heated roof-top pool and nice complimentary breakfast. Extremely good value for money.

Price is a bit high if you're being budget-conscious, but if you want quality bells and whistles you can't go wrong here. Rooms have super-high ceilings which make them feel huge. Great breakfast included. Be aware parking is extra.

This room is so spacious, high ceilings, I could stay here for longer than any other hotel. They even had a fan in the room! Free Wi-fi. Very nice outdoor seating area and pool. Free Breakfast that wasn't just the boring plan stuff at other hotels. Good location and many places to go to around this area. Worth paying for!

Beautiful, new Hampton Inn within walking distance to everything Austin has to offer! Probably the most unique Hampton Inn in the US. Modern, clean, spacious rooms and a wonderful hotel staff. Highly recommend.
