Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 6, 2013

We booked a corner balcony suite. Wow! Great view. Nice decor. Staff is exceptionally friendly and proud of this fairly new hotel. Artsy. More like a kimpton property than a Hampton.
Close to UT, the Capitol and 6 th street.
Great place to stay!

Room Tip: 8th floor corner suite...treat yourself!

Thank you for the review on tripadvisor. We appreciate all feedback and appreciate your kind words. We appreciate the comparison to a Kimpton Hotel. I was delighted that you mentioned our hotel was exceptionally friendly and proud. Our team takes great pride in their hotel. WE have a truly unique Austin docor and feel and "Artsy" is a good way to describe us. We look forward to your next visit with us!

This was a fabulous hotel. Honestly, I was so surpirsed because I wasn't expecting this from a Hampton Inn. The decor is so modern, fun, un-stuffy. The rooms were HUGE and my room overlooked the capitol and downtown area. My room also had a wrap around balcony so I could spend some time outside enjoying the views. The beds were cozy and the room was huge, like an apartment. I highly recommend this hotel & will be staying here when I return to the Austin area.

Room Tip: Corner suites include a balcony and are so roomy.

A new, modern hotel with an excellent location in downtown Austin - Highly recommended! The breakfast was plentiful with a wide variety of delicious options. I wish I had been able to enjoy the rooftop pool overlooking downtown, but the weather did not allow. This will be the first hotel I look into for my next trip to Austin.

Excellent stay, facilities and staff. Location is perfect...walking distance to UT Austin and Capitol building. Usually only stay at another hotel that has only suites...previous BAD experience at that Austin property. This Hampton in will NOT disappoint.

From the checkin thru checkout, this was one of the most pleasurable experiences that we've had with a business type hotel. The breakfast brunch was very tasty, and pleasantly attended to. Coffee service in our room and lobby was great (except for those packets of cream powder in the rooms-cured with a handful of creamer shots from the lobby). Our experience with your staff was as good as any motel/hotel we've been to. The great experience made us stay at the next stop in a Hampton that was great, but not as good as Austin! The Buteaus ps: really thought the waffles in the shape of Texas were neat...

One of the nicer Hampton Inn's that we have stayed at. Very nice lobby and close proximity to UT Campus is a huge plus. We spent an afternoon at the Texas Historical Museum which is just a few blocks away. Be prepared to pay $19/night for parking in garage.

This is one of the best Hampton Inn's you'll stay at in the US. Totally new, and modern; great place. It is right in the heart of Austin, and easy walking to the university. There are other Hilton hotels in the area, but this is the newest one, and a very good value. I had an upgraded room, that was very nice, and easy to use internet from AT&T.
