I had family come in for the weekend and I wanted them to stay at a hotel that felt like a Texas hotel. Perfect location on Congress. Walking distance to everything downtown. Walk to the Capital Building. 2nd Floor bar and the outdoor area is a lot of fun. Staff is friendly and helpful.

We usually stay in another hotel when we visit Austin but this time we decided to stay at the Intercontinental and we enjoyed it so much that we can never go back to our usual hotel.

Lovely hotel, great staff and perfect location. Short walk to 6th street, the Capitol. Very attractive decor with a western slant and spacious bathrooms. Roaring Forks restaurant was a tasty surprise.

Great location, service, and comfort. Valet is pricey. Roaring Forks is onsite for dining. Service at restaurant not the best. Comfortable beds. I walked to many locations. I wish Uber was in Austin though.

The hotel is fantastically located for downtown, 6th street entertainment etc. Very good reception, helpful and very polite. There is building work going on across the road and had read some unhappy reviews about this, so was given a room at the back and suffered no noise at all. Slight downsides, room was compact, more than I expect in the... More

The Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin was a wonderful experience. If attention to detail is important to you, your hotel search should end here. Everyone was courteous and professional.

The InterContinental remains our preferred brand for good reasons: service; accommodations; amenities. Austin's hotel offers this same consistency. Service is ever-present here, from the moment you step out of your cab, through check-in, and to your room. And the rooms? Wonderful! Ours had a kitchenette, living room, bedroom, and master bath. The attention to detail is worth applause. The closet... More
