Spent a couple of days here for work: terrace bar is great for a beer, food downstairs was very good (fish), staff were helpful at the business centre (thanks Tammie). I can more than recommend it for a stopover,
David.

Room Tip: You are one block from 6th street, try not to spend too much time indoors

Older hotel in the city center that has been updated nicely. Great service through out from everyone I encountered, even the maintenance man in the hall who asked how my day was going. Great location near Congress and Sixth Street. We booked an upgraded King room and it was very well decorated, spacious and a great experience. Quiet, comfortable and well equipped. I especially liked the controller near the bed that turned lights throughout the room on or off. Some great onsite food and bar options. Definitely a good choice for staying in downtown Austin.

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and for the mention of the bedside controls. They're pretty cool, aren't they? Just a small renovation detail that we are so proud of. Thanks for taking time to share your comments and for the nice recommendation!

From the moment I arrived, I was greeted by the hotel's friendly staff. I received exceptional service from Jamiliah Paschal at the front desk who went above and beyond to make sure that everything was handled quickly and efficiently during my stay. The hotel is located right in the heart of Austin and you can even see the State Capital from the front of the hotel. If you are looking for a good quality hotel with first class accommodations and knowledgeable staff who take pride in their work look no more this is the place to stay! Thank you to Jamiliah and David at the front desk and Zach in Valet for a wonderful though short stay while I was in Austin. I appreciate everything you did to make my stay a comfortable one.

I had a wonderful time at Intercontinental in Austin. Special thank you for Mr. Ferhat Turan for his hospitality, directions and superb service. The place was neat and clean, the staff friendly and hospitable, there is even a library at the lobby.

The Intercontinental in Austin met our expectations for a nice hotel. It had a very good location being easy walking distance from the state capitol and having lots of cafes and restaurants nearby. The room was clean and tidy if a little small. The staff were very friendly and the facilities good. The only disappointing thing was no free Wifi, not good in this day and age. Also the valet parking wasn't cheap.

The hotel seemed to be popular for conferences and business people but was still good for us as a couple and the in house restaurant was excellent!

A lovely hotel in a convenient location in Austin. Stayed there for a conference for three nights and loved the feel of the place. Had some urgent work that I had to complete during my time in the hotel and Tammie in the business centre went out of her way to help me get it done in time - things like that make business trips so much less stressful and are much appreciated. Would be happy to stay again, last time I was in Austin I stayed out near the airport - this hotel was a much better choice this time.

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
