“Great hotel/great location”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Relatively new hotel with a funky, fun atmosphere. Staff was courteous and helpful. Large rooms w/ very comfy beds. Nice saltwater pool on 5th floor patio with a great view. Hot breakfast was a huge bonus. Parking in garage ($19) very handy. Great location between UT campus and downtown. I will definitely stay here again.

Downtown Austin convenience with many extras included. Steps from museums, restaurants and art. This location works for families or business. The staff has a great attitude and is ready for you. Very comfortable for a long or short visit.

Absolutely wonderful stay in Austin. Helpful and friendly staff, great free breakfast, amazing bed sheets and an outdoor pool. We loved our 4 nights there. 15 min. walk to 6th street. AC unit is a little loud, but that is the only issue. You won't be disappointed!

This place is fantastic! Great breakfast, great room, great view of the Capitol, great service and friendly people. We stayed for 4 nights (we were there for the MotoGP races), so we splurged for the corner/balcony. It was worth it. I do wish they would have had a place to sit out there, but we weren't really in the room enough to have it be a deal breaker.
Favorite things: you can walk to the Texas Chili Parlor and Scholz Garten. Easy out to the Circuit of the America's (we thought). Apparently you can walk to the Capitol. Workout facilities were nice. Pool looked beautiful, but we didn't take advantage of it. Texas shaped/sized waffles.

Room Tip: Loved the balcony!

We have stayed here twice. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Their location makes it easy to access campus, Capitol and downtown. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice breakfast downstairs. Safe hotel for single travelers.

It was a nice room and the balcony was nice (even though there really wasn't anything to look at); however, when you are paying $200 a night for a room, you would think they could at least provide you with REAL glassware! All we had was some cheap paper cups, which weren't too classy for drinking our nice bottle of wine!

Thank you for your feedback! I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your room and the balcony. We do apologize for not having real glassware. We are not a full service hotel and that is the reason we do not however we are looking into purchasing some glassware for our guests to enjoy. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!

We had a great stay on the 2nd floor of this Hampton Inn. We had a balcony overlooking Lavaca St. which was wonderful at night. The saltwater pool is small but clean and refreshing. The staff was helpful, and even gave my daughter and me free drinks one day when the temperature reached 102. We had a great time, and the room was clean and very spacious.
