Stayed at the Stephen F for business and enjoyed my visit. Fitness Center is adequate, small pool and locker room. Really fun bars on first and second floor and good restaurant. Very pleasant staff and a great location if doing business in Austin. Room was very comfortable.

The service from the arrival to departure was fantastic! The rooms were spacious, clean, up to date with electrical outlets every where. Food at the Roaring Fork was outstanding. Also ordered room service lat one evening it came on time, priced right and tasted great.

My husband and I have stayed at the Stephen F Austin on several occassions, and we have never been disappointed. The rooms are always super clean, and the staff is magnificent. We have more frequently visited their bar, though. The bar has a fantastic wrap-around patio, with a great view of EVERYTHING (I have a great picture of us standing on the patio, with the Capitol lit up in the back) The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable PLUS they always have a great selection of Texas beers. It is a great spot to start or end your evening.

We recently stayed at the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin in Austin, Texas. From the moment we arrived, everyone was so friendly and hospitable. Jamiliah Paschal (Guest Services Rep) was so kind and helpful with our hotel room as well as suggestions on places to go. The Concierre was also extremely helpful with obtaining a rental car for a day trip to the wineries (which we did no know about). The hotel is close to 6th street and the capitol. We ended each evening with a nightcap in the hotel bar, which Anthony (bartender) helped us to enjoy :). We would highly recommend this hotel and we would stay at again!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are great because of the views

Came to Austin to celebrate our friends 25th anniversary. The Intercontinental SFA was our center hub for all the party activities. The location of the hotel makes walking around the city very easy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We greatly enjoyed our time there. And we always either began or ended our evenings up on the balcony bar with Anthony. He made sure we were well taken care of. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the city.

We're so happy to be part of such a monumental celebration, thank you for choosing the InterContinental! And thank you too for the very kind comments. We're lucky to have such a wonderful location, and we're just as lucky to have Anthony working for us in the bar! He's fantastic and I'll be sure to share this with him. Come see us again soon!

The hotel staff is great and very friendly (we had our son with us and he was greeted with cookies and milk :)). It made his day for sure. Great place for family time because everything is walking distance (~1-8 city blocks). The room was clean and well kept with nice decor. Only complaint is that it is very close to 6th street so some noise at late night was inevitable.

Hi Nikhil, and thank you for that great review. So glad you were able to enjoy the Austin sites and sounds while you were here, but I do apologize for the noise from our music district getting in the way of a restful night's sleep. I'm not sure if we were at capacity, but we will always try to accommodate our guest's needs, in this case, by moving you to a more quiet room. Come on back and see us; we'll put you in a room away from the noise and you'll sleep like a baby!

Thank you again.

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
