“Perfect Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

A new, modern hotel with an excellent location in downtown Austin - Highly recommended! The breakfast was plentiful with a wide variety of delicious options. I wish I had been able to enjoy the rooftop pool overlooking downtown, but the weather did not allow. This will be the first hotel I look into for my next trip to Austin.

Excellent stay, facilities and staff. Location is perfect...walking distance to UT Austin and Capitol building. Usually only stay at another hotel that has only suites...previous BAD experience at that Austin property. This Hampton in will NOT disappoint.

From the checkin thru checkout, this was one of the most pleasurable experiences that we've had with a business type hotel. The breakfast brunch was very tasty, and pleasantly attended to. Coffee service in our room and lobby was great (except for those packets of cream powder in the rooms-cured with a handful of creamer shots from the lobby). Our experience with your staff was as good as any motel/hotel we've been to. The great experience made us stay at the next stop in a Hampton that was great, but not as good as Austin! The Buteaus ps: really thought the waffles in the shape of Texas were neat...

Dear Emile B,

Thank you for the feedback on tripadvisor. We appreciate your feedback. Thank you for the kind words! I was delighted to see that you enjoyed our breakfast service. I was happy that you were able to get some real cream from our lobby and we will look into real cream for our in room coffee makers. We are happy to see that you stayed at another Hampton from your experience here but look forward to your return visit here with us! We look forward to your next stay with us!

Thank you for the comments about our Texas Shaped Waffles.....they taste better because of their shape ;).

One of the nicer Hampton Inn's that we have stayed at. Very nice lobby and close proximity to UT Campus is a huge plus. We spent an afternoon at the Texas Historical Museum which is just a few blocks away. Be prepared to pay $19/night for parking in garage.

This is one of the best Hampton Inn's you'll stay at in the US. Totally new, and modern; great place. It is right in the heart of Austin, and easy walking to the university. There are other Hilton hotels in the area, but this is the newest one, and a very good value. I had an upgraded room, that was very nice, and easy to use internet from AT&T.

This hotel is awesome. The service is second to none. You want to keep checking this place out.
You are in the heart of this great city. The hotel is sparkling clean. What an experience. The hotel is crazy cool. This is a Hampton like no other. Great artifacts all over the place. The staff was awesome. The breakfast was better than most that you pay for in hotels. You really need to check this place out in Austin, I would not steer you wrong.
