Hampton Inn & Suites Austin at The University/Capitol
Ranked #5 of 201 Hotels in Austin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Our son is going to the University of Texas at Austin. The location of this hotel couldn't be better for parents of these students. It is a new hotel and the rooms are very nice. The staff both day and night went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable as guests and as parents leaving a child behind. This will defiantly become our go to place for all visits.

Dear Lynore245,

Thank you for your feedback on tripadvisor. I agree, our location couldn't be better for parents of students. Our location allows easy access to the University (2 blocks away) and all Austin has to offer. Thank you for taking the time to notice our staff " both night and day" going above and beyond to make you feel comfortable! We look forward to your next stay with us!

Very nice, comfortable hotel with a good hot breakfast. More than cereal, waffles, and yogurt. I wish they did have strawberry yogurt though instead of just peach and blueberry! Nice size rooms with extra space on the sides of the beds. Bathroom counter just a little high for us 5ft. 2" people though.

Dear Lori A,

Thank you for your feedback on tripadvisor! Thank you for the kind words in regards to our comfortable hotel with "good hot breakfast". I was disapointed that we didn't have the variety of yogurts that you enjoy and will work with our staff to make sure their is more variety. I was glad to see you enjoyed our "nice size rooms". We look forward to your next visit with us!

This Hampton Inn was a great place to stay. It appears to be a relatively new property, as everything, from lobby decor to room furnishings were modern. The staff was very welcoming and willing to help me with my luggage as I had to hurry out to a business meeting. The central location allowed me to walk to both the capitol as well as walk on the UT campus. Overall, a great experience. I'll certainly be staying at this hotel when I visit Austin next.

Short walk to either downtown/capital area or south side of university. Many good restaurants within short walk. Friendly staff, clear and comfortable rooms, and better breakfast than I've had at other Hampton Inns - will stay here again.

This hotel sets the bar really high -- not only for other Hampton Inns, but for high-end hotels. We had a wonderful experience on our business/pleasure 3-night stay in Austin. The hotel is sleek and immaculately maintained. The room was nicely sized and the bed very comfy. The staff is amazingly customer-focused -- each person we encountered seemed sincerely interested in ensuring that our stay was wonderful. Special thanks to Nick, Jen and Emily (front desk) and Ricky for making our stay so pleasant.

Loved the decor and lighting of this "Austin cool" hotel. Complimentary breakfast was way more than the usual fare--delicious. Convenient location -- a few blocks from UT, Bob Bullock Museum, and the State Capitol.

This hotel just opened in October. I stayed one night for a seminar at UT and a had a suite. The suite is huge! Such a great, comfy, spacious room within a few blocks walk to the University of Texas. The decor is Austin artsy and I love that the staff wore Keep Austin Weird patches on their uniforms. Everyone on staff was very helpful and kind. The views are beautiful and the pool area is very nice. Free breakfast in the morning was nice. The room was very quiet and the bed was wonderful.The hotel is also a short walk to the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum.
