I love the fact that this hotel is in the heart of Austin. Its walking distance to everything music , restaurants , people watching etc. I love the ambiance of this old hotel that has been remodeled very nicely. We had a room facing Congress, there was never any issues of noise here from the street. We had one issue one night when a huge party erupted next door at 2 am but security took care of it immediately. The room was very large and comfortable, we had large bedroom area , separate from the sitting area which also had bar/counter area. Every day in the afternoon you could go down and have complimentary wine , champagne ,beer and appetizer's. Also delicious breakfasts in the Intercontinental hotel or you can choose their continental breakfasts as part of your hotel package.
They also have a great restaurant in the hotel called the Roaring Fork . Upstairs there is a bar and fantastic wrap around balcony for some cocktails. All of the staff were so gracious and fun, to name a few that i dealt with ,were Marissa, Jackie, Vivianna and Thomas . Loved the atmosphere and would return. This is such a great city, so colorful ,fun and it comes alive at night. Also check out the Driscoll hotel for its history. Then walk to the Texas state capitol ,this is a cool place to take a tour and and sit in one of their session's.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Keeping it weird in style ever since we opened in 1924, thanks to the people of Austin who funded our construction! When we opened we were the tallest building in Austin at 10 stories tall. We have gotten a little taller, 15 stories currently, but the city has grown up around us over the years making us a hidden gem in the heart of downtown. We are located 1 block from 6th street, 3 blocks from the Capitol and walking distance to all the activities that make Austin the amazing city that it is. If you are looking for the true experience of Texas and Austin book a room with us. ... more less
