Hotel has been recently refreshed. Rooms spacious and comfortable. Service impeccable. Excellent location. On site restaurant very good. Recommend fish tacos. Only suggestion - courtesy car for short trips from hotel, as hi temps cause most to wilt.

Was in town for business, only one night but it was a good stay. I slept well. Decent accomodations, nice staff, top notch for Austin Texas. Valet guys do a great job. Only a block away from many restaurants as well. I recomend it if you are ever in Austin overnight.

I didn't stay at this hotel, but I visited the bar for drinks with a coworker. We had spotted the Terrace Bar on a previous trip and wanted to check it out. The bartender, Taylor, was very friendly and helpful. They have a broad selection of drinks and nice wine list. The atmosphere was great to enjoy a glass of wine outside on the terrace overlooking the capitol and the chairs/couches are very comfortable.

Overall it was a nice experience and will return on future trips.

Stayed at the SFA for business meeting. The room was great. Upgraded to a suite. No complaints.

The meetings rooms were fine. The breakfasts and lunch provided were great.

Would choose SFA whenever visiting Austin.

We failed to make reservations, but the staff at the front desk were able to find us a room. The room was small and extremely nice and comfortable. We visited a local street event a few blocks away and had an amazing weekend out of town. We would highly recommend this older, but refurished hotel. It's a landmark hotel, elegant and affordable.

Room Tip: Make reservations ahead of time. We could have had a bigger room if we had booked ahead of time.

Our first (and lovely room) on the 9th floor was right next to the elevators. While resting in the room we heard a consistent clack-clack-clack as one of the elevators moved up and down. No way to sleep with that going on. Upon request the front desk quickly and graciously moved us to another, larger room which was even nicer than our first. Our two-day stay in this hotel was terrific. We were warmly greeted by all the staff we met. The location was excellent for seeing the sights of downtown Austin.

Room was great, large, clean and updated. Really a great historic hotel with an amazing restrauant "Rolling Fork"....plus a very nice balcony to have a late afternoon cocktail. It also has an awesome location, can walk to almost everything downtown. Only drawback is parking. They do have valet which is expensive. You can park overnight across the street (on the street) if it is available.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Keeping it weird in style ever since we opened in 1924, thanks to the people of Austin who funded our construction! When we opened we were the tallest building in Austin at 10 stories tall. We have gotten a little taller, 15 stories currently, but the city has grown up around us over the years making us a hidden gem in the heart of downtown. We are located 1 block from 6th street, 3 blocks from the Capitol and walking distance to all the activities that make Austin the amazing city that it is. If you are looking for the true experience of Texas and Austin book a room with us. ... more   less
