Amazing hotel very centrally located. Not only are the room spacious, clean and with all the amenities one may need, but the covered parking on a rainy day and free breakfast were a plus! All for $130/night. couldnt be happier with our stay.

Balcony on 2 sides for pano view. Staff was friendly. Free breakfast was good enough. Good hours, variety and atmosphere. Self parking (under the hotel) is a reasonable $19 per... More

This hotel is in a perfect location if you are wanting to be close to the UT campus and 6th St. The hotel staff was very friendly. Our room/bathroom was very large for a standard room and we had an incredible view of downtown Austin and the campus tower. The beds are extremely comfortable but that is another reason we... More

The hotel's location is great for working in the Capital area. The staff is great. There is easy on site parking. The beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are huge. I like having the large desk for working space.

In addition to its cleanliness, cool artworks, good breakfast, and convenient to UT location, this Hampton Inn has great service. We came in late at night hungry and the night clerk James sent us to the Texas Chili Parlor a few blocks away. It was terrific. The desk staff made this stay feel more like an upmarket Hilton stay.

We stayed there recently for four nights for the F1 Grand Prix weekend and we loved this hotel. First off I had got the booking wrong by a day but Lindsey at reception dealt with it so efficiently and made so little of it. No officialdom here, just good service delivered without fuss. We had been upgraded to a corner... More
