Reviewed 6 November 2013

This hotel has really nice rooms with lots of space, beautiful balcony, albeit noisy from the street. Very comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast was great although not enough tables nor fresh fruit.

Dear A tripadvisor member<

Thank you for the great score on tripadvisor. I agree with you and appreciate the kind words, brief and to the point! I was happy to see you enjoyed your balcony room. I was dispointed to see that we ran out of tables during breakfast. I assume this wa a Saturday / Sunday when everyone gets up at the same time and comes down to breakfast. We are looking at opeing up our meeting space to accomodate extra seating during heavily trafficed breakfast times. I appreceiate the feedback and we will do better!

Sincerely,

Sean Fitzgerald

First time to stay at this hotel. I loved the safe, convenient parking. It was worth the $19 for business travel purposed. It is a new hotel and was very clean. Great lobby, but it could really use a bar for drinks. Standard HI room. In room refrigerator was nice.

Dear Suzanne R,

Thank you for taking the time to respond to tripadvisor about your experience with our hotel. We appreciate your comments about our "Great New Austin hotel". While our parking is competitve, I appreciate you informing readers that the parking was worth it. Thank you for noticing the details on our lobby. We hope to install a bar in 2015! I am biased but I feel all our rooms are better then a typical Hampton Inn. We look forward to your next stay with us!

I stayed here for the Austin Film Festival. It's about a 15 minute walk down to the theaters, which was nothing to me since I reside in NYC. It is however very close if your seeing a film at the IMAX Bullock theater, which I did.

The rooms are great. I stayed in a King Suite and had a living room area and lots of room at the desk, which could be shared by several people. High ratings on the layout.

I have stayed at several Hampton Inn's and this one so far is the best. Next time I'm in Austin, I will be returning.

Didn't get a chance to check out the pool and gym, but hoping to do so next visit. I highly recommend for filmmakers coming in next year or for SXSW.

We're generally fans of Hampton Inn's already, but this one is the best by far. A fancy boutique hotel, but at a great price + great local Austin touches throughout. The staff was phenomenal, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included, and also excellent. Can't go wrong with this one.

I was astonished at the size and amenities of this downtown Austin studio hotel room. It was very neat and clean but much larger and more comfortable than any Hampton Inn room I have every booked. I like the consistent quality and value of staying at Hampton, but this was a pleasant surprise. Excellent bed and bedding.

We enjoyed our quick visit to Austin for my daughters wedding. Our accommodations were very nice. I especially loved the sheets and bedding, very soft and comfortable. The lobby had interesting artwork and furnishings. It was a really nice stay.

The rooms are ultra-modern and very clean. The king-size bed was most comfortable. My spouse received a catered breakfast at her offsite meeting but I still think I did better than she with the fine buffet available here. This is where I shall always stay in the future when in Austin.
