I loved the Texas waffles (that were in the shape of Texas). We came a little late for breakfast one day but the staff, who was cleaning up, offered us some juice and a quick chance to grab a little something. The pool was small but we didn't spend that much time there. The front desk staff is very polite and provided us with maps of the city, tips and directions for getting around.

Dear Nita U,

Thank you for the feedback on tripadvisor. I was glad to see you enjoyed our Texas Waffles! I was glad to see that our breakfast offered you items after it had closed :). I agree that we have the best staff in Austin who are polite and friendly. While our pool is averae sized, it has amazing views on our 5th floor of the Austin Skyline & Capitol. We look forward to your next visit to Austin!

Sincerely,

Sean Fitzgerald

This Property was brand new back in December 2012 when I first stayed. I've stay 8 to 10 nights since then. It's my new favorite Hampton of all time. Great Staff. Cool Artsy Lobby and rooms. Every room that I've stayed in had 12 foot ceiling...and some units have balconies. The rooms are full of conveniently located power outlets...plenty of room to plug-in all of your devices.

This is surely the nicest Hampton Inn I've ever visited! I highly recommend this hotel for both business travelers and couples/families visiting Austin.

I stumbled across this well located Hampton Inn after a last minute change of plans and it was my good fortune! The room was quite comfortable with a great bed and nice linens. The bathroom was spotless and stocked with plenty of towels. The complimentary hot breakfast was also a real treat with quality offerings served in a lovely lobby area. If that wasn't enough, the staff was terrific. The GM, Sean, went out off his way to personally help me "jump" my car after I accidentally left the lights on all night!

Our family of four spent four nights at The Hampton Austin @ The Capitol. It was our first visit to Austin and were there on a family trip. Hamptons are consistently good but this property was one of, if not the highest quality Hamptons.

The staff was exceedingly courteous and helpful. Ricky (you rock dude) was sensational and Victor A was tremendously helpful and informative at check-in. We learned that the property was only months old and that Austin was weird, growing, bustling, full of good eats, as well as outside friendly.

Our two queen beds room on the eight floor was clean, spacious, and modern. The beds were fabulously comfortable and the TBISC (this bed is so clean) ad campaign was not overstated for us. We can always use more closet space and chairs but we were able to keep our luggage off of the floor.

The lobby had eclectic but not gaudy decor. The breakfast was typical continental but prepared fresh daily. Our children appreciated the Texas shaped waffles. The pool was the small rooftoo variety. If you are in Austin at this Hampton, then you are not there for the pool. Barton Springs is a much better option.

The property is located within walking distance to the Capitol, four-star restaurants, Starbucks and within a short drive to sixth street, Congress street, and many of the other must see attractions.

This will definitely be our hotel of choice when we return to Austin.

Originally we were supposed to stay at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Bastrop however we needed to stay in Austin unexpectedly. Bastrop Hampton let us cancel with no charge and were very helpful and the Hampton in Austin/University were more than accomadating as well. They got us a room and we were able to check in within the hour and we were able to pay cash due to my wallet being stolen. The room was not a suite but very nice and had a balcony with a view of the capital and the university. Additonally the breakfast was good, hot and available.

Thank you for a wonderful experience in muggy Austin. Your hotel was clean, bright and affordable. The breakfast was wonderful -- lots of hot choices. The bed was comfortable. I could walk to the University for meetings. I will definitely stay again.
