This is the hotel that my husband and I use when we come to Austin. It is always very clean, and appears to be more for the business traveler . Nevertheless , we enjoy our stay each time. You do have to use valet each time, and they park it In a nearby garage. That can get a little annoying... More

I was visiting Austin with my parents and some family who were visiting America for the first time, and to be honest the intercontinental Stephen F. Austin blew my expectations out of the water!

We stayed here the night of our wedding. They gave us some free snacks, a free drink and it was very beautiful. It is by the theater and congress so we know if we stay again in the future we can enjoy other area attractions. The restaurant on 2nd floor has a patio that looks out on the street.

We had a terrific family stay at the Intercontinental Austin. The service was excellent, from check-in to the lovely concierge Rebecca to the hotel restaurant - all top notch. The location feels close to everything in Austin. The room was comfortable and well appointed in this beautiful, historic building. I highly recommend this hotel!
