Hampton Inn & Suites Austin at The University/Capitol
Ranked #6 of 202 Hotels in Austin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 27, 2014

As a frequent business traveler, I've stayed in almost every hotel in the Austin area, and this Hampton Inn is by far the best hotel experience. After multiple stays over the summer at this hotel, I can say that every stay was excellent. The rooms are great, the location is great, and the staff (Lindsey, Jen, Belinda, John) are very friendly and accommodating. This is not your normal "Hampton Inn". It is a unique and luxurious boutique hotel experience with top notch customer service.

We had an amazingly large room with great amenities & floor to ceiling windows. Great location in Austin - downtown, but still quiet and convenient without being in the middle of the madness. Most comfortable sheets I've ever slept o!.

This is a very nice looking Hotel located one block from the University of Texas and very close to all the downtown Austin attractions. Will use it frequently to visit my son. Everything is in walking distance.

Very nice. One of the nicer Hampton Inn Hotels. Rooms are very large. Lobby is exceptionally nice and luxurious. Breakfast is acceptable and is no different than other Hampton Inn hotels. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

A wonderful hotel with a superb staff. Ideal location. Modern, fresh, clean and beautifully decorated. Nice gym and pool area...small but all you need. Breakfast is the beat I've ever had at a Hampton and they vary the hot entree daily. Side note...be there when they have bacon!!!
I could go on and on, but one visit and you'll see why it's #1 on Trip Adviser.

On any extremely delayed flight day, Christina very late at night greeted us and made us feel immediately welcome. Also gave a well prepared review of all the activities happening over Fourth of July. It was a family reunion and special event so the list was fabulous to share. In addition, another instance was needing local cabs on a very busy weekend. Christina came to the rescue.

The overall staff very professional and the breakfast service was excellent. Thank you

Room Tip: The location of this hotel is an overall quiet area so don't think outside noise is a factor

We recently received lodging at this particular Hampton Inn. We were very please with the accomodations from the central location, an extremely well-kept/clean facility, to the very responsive staff.
If you are considering a visit to Austin, you should consider staying at this location. You will not regret it!
