“I would stay here again and again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I chose to stay here when I came to the Austin area because I've had luck with Hampton Inns before. I was not disappointed - this place was great. It's easy to find, and was a quick drive to the Round Rock area where I needed to go. There are LOTS of really nice malls within a 5-10 minutes drive too, where you could buy anything you could possibly need, as well as dine out. The hotel is immaculate. The room is pretty big (especially the bathroom) and nicely decorated. My room had a comfy king-size bed, a full (maybe queen?) sized pull-out couch, and a nice desk with a really comfortable desk chair for working. The lobby/dining area was among the nicest I've seen at similar properties, and the complimentary breakfast was much better than I expected. I will definitely stay here the next time I am in the area.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms face the Burger King next door... they're not noisy, but you can definitely...

Stayed at this hotel in late September with my dad. The minute we flew into Texas and landed, I knew I would like the south--we're from Michigan--and boy was I right. But most importantly, I loved where we would be staying for the next three days, at the Hampton Inn Austin-Arboretum Northwest. This was my first experience of any state south of Ohio and it was pretty remarkable. The service was incredibly friendly. Lindsey--one of the people at the front desk--was very sweet, incredibly patient, and super hospitable. The staff was also exceedingly friendly and welcoming. The room that we stayed in was immaculate and cleaned pretty regularly when my dad and whenever my dad and I went out to experience the sights of Austin. The shower was clean, easy to use, and had great pressure. The beds were super comfortable and the television/internet services were good. In all honesty, I'm missing Austin right now. A.C. kicked in when it needed to and cooled the room to a very comfortable temperature. But speaking of UNcomfortable temperatures, it's freezing up here in Michigan and I would like nothing more than to travel down to Austin and obviously stay at this Hampton Inn again. Oh, the complimentary breakfast my dad and I received was also great with a good variety of food. Only utilized the gym the night before we left but it seemed sufficient to fit the needs of a handful of people. The location was also pretty convenient for everything we needed to do and was just far enough away from downtown Austin so that we wouldn't have to deal with that traffic all day. Overall I really enjoyed my trip and the stay in this hotel. You really can't go wrong here people.

Staff was friendly and courteous, but one expects that in Austin. Room was a comfortable size for two and well equiped. What really stood out was the complimentary breakfast, which was much better than we've had a similarly priced inns.

We are long time Hilton Honors members and stay at Hiltons always, usually a Hampton Inn when traveling b/c it is a great value, always very clean, and staff always courteous. The location of this particular one is great. The room was clean, but not immaculate as we have come to expect from Hilton properties, but nothing that would cause us to leave. This location has the BEST breakfast of ANY Hampton we have ever stayed at too---they have great offerings and they change it up daily. Friendly staff night and day. So what is the problem? The mattresses were the WORST we have ever encountered at a Hampton/Hilton. We all---2 adults, 2 tweens---had 2 miserable nights sleep and all were tired, stiff, and sore each morning. Such a disappointment as we have always been impressed with the quality of beds/pillows/and comfy blankets at all other Hilton properties at which we have stayed. One other thing worth mentioning is that the ac/heat unit is one of those old wall blowing units. It is controlled by a thermostat on the wall, so it will come on automatically and such but it is still one of those nasty legionnaire type units that always seem to give us a cough and scratchy throat. We will not return to this location when visiting Austin again unless we can confirm that they have upgraded/updated the beds.

I stayed here during the F-1 racing week, the prices were higher than normal but it was well worth it! As soon as i walked in i was greeted by 3 of their staff who all were happen to be near the front desk/lobby area. I was greeted with a big smile. I was bery stressed out from work and i kept on wating to go back to hotel to rest, the bed was comfrotable so i slept INSTANTLY (i was also pulling 15hours a day of work, but it was a very comfortable bed which i enjoyed sleeping in. The night staff would still greet me with a smile and a joke or something even during 2 or 3 am. There is also a restaurant/bar that is right in between here and the homewood suites which are operated by the same owner, the restaurant has great food, great place to go lunch/dinner/late night!! I enjoyed my stay here!! Hope you will as well!

This was my first stay at this hotel, but it definitely won't be the last: I've already booked 2 return trips. Things that I REALLY like: coffee available all the time, great breakfast choices (way more than a continental breakfast), really nice sheets and towels, and incredibly helpful staff. Enough said!

We came to Austin to visit family and had a great stay at this hotel. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. The buffet breakfast was excellent with a very nice variety of choices. Coffee & apples are always available, and there is even chocolate at the registration desk. Our room was cleaned daily; it was extremely quiet, even though it faced the road. The location was convenient to everything with easy access to the highway, and the price was quite reasonable. All in all, a very pleasant stay. We will definitely be back to the Arboretum Hampton!!!
