My friend and I stayed here from 2/17-2/22. What a wonderful experience!
Location- the location is perfect! Seriously a five minute walk to the Capitol, a 5 minute walk to the University area, and a 10/15 minute walk to Congress Street/Downtown/6th Street. An excellent way to walk off.......
THE BREAKFAST!- my friend and I adored this spread. It makes every penny worth it. I think we each had about 4 meals each morning! The oatmeal, fruit, waffles, etc, all wonderful. The "ToGo" bags were great as well since they included essential water bottles, perfect to bring when trekking around Austin!
The Staff- I feel like I abused my phone privileges on this trip, calling down to the front desk about 5 times a day. But they helped me with everything I needed! Printing directions to San Antonio, helping us choose where to get pizza, information about the gym, etc. If we annoyed the staff they never let on! : )
Other- useful fitness facility, a rooftop that offers unparalleled views of the Austin skyline (I actually had a dream about it last night, the Capitol building illuminated at night, is breathtaking!), an excellent sundries shop, coffee available 24 hours a day, and the most comfortable beds you will ever sleep in (it felt like I was sleeping on a cloud!)
Now I am back in Boston and wish I could still call 1701 Lavaca home! If I ever return to Austin that will be where I'm heading. Should any friends or family need a recommendation as to where to stay in Austin I will without hesitation suggest this Hampton. Thank you to all staff members, cheers from Massachusetts!
