What a surprise! Great service, friendly staff, impeccably clean rooms, and wow, what a Hampton Inn! I loved the furniture, finishing, and decor -- it really felt like an Austin hotel. The beds are comfortable and the showers actually have good water pressure. I didn't have any noise issues from the AC and didn't hear anyone near me, even though there was someone right next door. I've stayed in quite a few properties in downtown Austin for business and for fun, but this is the best value. You are getting boutique hotel quality for Hampton Inn prices. Breakfast was nice and hot with solid variety, so no complaints here. I can't think of anything wrong with it -- still amazed this is a Hampton Inn! Also, it was easily walking distance from downtown -- just a few blocks and right near UT as well. I only wished I had brought my bathing suit. Their rooftop heated pool was gorgeous and, even in January, it was a perfect day for swimming. What a view!
