The hotel is currently being renovated but the king suite we stayed in was spacious enough and well fitted. The location in downtown Austin was great for walking and exploring. The staff was gracious and helpful, providing wonderful service and provided a nice surprise for our children (cookies and milk for bed). Especially helpful was Tammie Linden at the business center who helped when we had difficulty getting our flight information and boarding passes, and suggested some nice actives for our children. The breakfast buffet was comprehensive, with several varieties of food and fruit. Check out was easy.

Room Tip: While the south side might be noisier in the morning as it is over the entrance, it provided a good view of the city.

Hello and thank you for that wonderful survey! I must apologize however for what you must have taken as renovation; we are actually replacing our elevators and I suspect you saw the "repercussions" of that. I hope your were not inconvenienced as a result.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, and trust that you and your family were able to experience the best of Austin while you were here! As you said, there are so many venues that are within walking distance of our property, and we feel very fortunate to be in such a great location. Thank you again, and hope to see you again the next time you're in Texas! Take care.

Thank you STRYKER2014, for that great 5 Star review and for the shout out to Tammie! We get compliments on her very regularly; she's just the type of person who can anticipate what you need, and then make it happen. We're real lucky to have her on our team.

Thanks again and take care.

[Would be 3.5 stars if that were possible]

Austin is such a fun town and the Intercontinental is perfectly placed so that you are close to the action, but not stuck right in the middle of the action (the bars etc on 6th St can get a little on the loud side). Easy walking distance to all the good stuff!!

The building is lovely and has a really nice, old world charm to it, and the rooms are perfectly fine. The beds at Intercontinentals are always great, and this property is no exception. We also had a lovely view of the Capitol Building on this occasion.

There are slight problems with some of the services. Whilst we were there (for only 3 days) the internet and TV service dropped out repeatedly, the 'welcome amenity' items we were told with great gusto would be in our room as a welcome from the hotel only actually appeared on Day 3 and after much chasing at the front desk, and the breakfast which we ordered to the room (at a really high price, too) was missing some items and had errors with the rest of the order.

That said, I really enjoyed the stay and would come back here again. It is a charming property with really lovely staff, just don't expect it to be the most slick hotel you've ever stayed at.

Hi Kelly and thank you for your feedback. We are elated that you liked our hotel overall, but hope that we are able to welcome you back again, to "make up" for those service issues. Take care.

We loved our stay at the Intercontinental. As a platinum IHG rewards member, I was surprised they upgraded me on our recent award stay at the tail end of SXSW when the hotel was packed. We loved our huge room, the marble bathroom and all the amenities. It would be nice if they gave you more than a few inches of space in the refrigerator though. The hotel is just a block off the 6th Street entertainment area, so it's a great base for the bars along the street. It was quite noisy during SXSW itself, but it was pretty quiet even on St. Patrick's Day when 6th was hopping.

Hello Elizabeth and thank you for the nice compliment. I'm sorry your room was a little noisy. The next time, please ask the front desk if you can be relocated, and you have my word that we'll do our best to move you to a different room. I hope you enjoyed all that Austin has to offer, and I also hope that we are able to welcome you back soon. Take care.

My husband and I stayed here at Christmastime. It was amazing. Our room was gorgeous, with a huge bath and magnificent tub, a great big four poster bed, and a comfortable sitting area. It is within a short walk dozens of restaurants, bars, and music venues. Room service was fast and the portion sizes were generous. There were fresh flowers too! Valet was quick, and all in all we had a wonderful stay and can't wait to go back.
