I spent the weekend with my boys in Austin to watch our Minnesota Gophers play in the NCAA tournament as well as to check out UT for my high school Junior.
The Hampton Inn was in a great location for the tournament – just a short walk to the Frank Erwin Center. Upon arrival, we were greeted graciously by Kyle at the front desk. Kyle was very helpful and is clear that he enjoys his job. He greeted my teenaged boys in a friendly manner and they chatted about sporting teams. He also had great recommendations for local restaurants that were teen-friendly.
Our room was spacious, clean and had a small kitchen which came in handy with two hungry boys. We were very happy with the room and housekeeping. The bed was super comfy. We took advantage of sleeping in late so we did not make it down to the breakfast bar. I heard from other guests that it was very good.
The location of the hotel is near the UT campus. It was fine for our stay, but note that it is a drive or cab ride to the more bustling area of Austin where you will find more restaurant choices and night life.
I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a nice, quiet place to stay in Austin.
