“Keep Austin weird!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

Nice hotel, a bit pricy. clean and spacious room + bathroom. Super soft bedsheets, considering to order a pair for myself! Heated rooftop pool was small but nice for a quick cooldown. Warm welcome at the reception. A lot of choice at breakfast, including texas shaped waffles :-) Location was ok but out of the center. You need a car/taxi to go downtown. We reserved a spot in the hotel parking but ended up looking for a spot in the street because it was full when we arrived after dinner. (They didn't charge the spot and apologised for the inconvenience). Would stay here again.

Dear Kristof C,

Thank you for your feedback on tripadvisor. I appreciate your comments on the clean & spacious room, supersoft sheets, heated rooftop pool, warm welcome at reception & our many choices at breakfast. We appreciate our location just off entertainment district and city center as we are able to have a quiet surrounding. Our guests can easily get to the fun & entertainment without having to be part of it. We do have limited parking and can be a challenge on heavy transiet weekends, however their is plenty of parking outside of the hotel. Thank you for helping us "Keep Ausitn Weird". We look forward to your next visit with us!

Sincerely,

Sean Fitzgerald

The hotel is very new, so it is good shape, the rooms are clean, there are no ugly smells. When I looked on google maps I got worried since the hotel was in the process of being built. Safe to say the building is complete and it is a nice hotel with a good view from the roof top pool.

Dear Kevin S,

Thank you for your response on tripadvisor. I was happy to read that we exceeded your expectations! Our staff takes great pride in making sure the hotel is in tip top shape. Thank you for bringing up that on google maps we look like we are under construction. We will get that corrected. We do have some amazing views of the City of Austin, The Capitol, the hill country, & the University of Texas. We look forward to your next visit with us!

I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel in Austin because the room was big, comfortable bed, and a great breakfast buffet. I normally stay downtown Austin and accidentally booked this one over the other Hampton inn but it was not a far walk to the bars on 4th after all.

This hotel was awesome! The staff confirmed my arrival plans with a personal phone call. No automated recording! The front desk greeted me with smiles, courtesy and helpfulness. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding! A waffle iron in the shape of Texas! Well-balanced items to fit a wide variety of tastes. Room was DARK! Perfect for sleeping late. A wonderful experience!

We had an event downtown at the AT&T Center, and decided to grab a hotel room for the night. This Hampton Inn had a cool, hipster, Austiny vibe. The lobby had great seating area's, and a computer bar to plug into. Our room was super comfortable, and well appointed. Breakfast was as good as it gets at a Hampton Inn. Location was excellent. Parking in garage underneath the hotel made it all easy.

Clean spacious rooms & friendly & helpful staff. Conveniently located to U Texas & downtown. Room was quiet & the parking (for $19) was indoor with easy access in and out. Like every hotel, if one has a good room, it's a positive experience. It is a good value.

Great location in Austin. Enjoyed room with a view of State Capitol. Beautiful rooms...very comfy beds...and very quiet! Also enjoyed the rooftop swimming pool! Free breakfast was good with very friendly staff. Sean was very attentive to my need for a room with view and accommodated us our second nite. Thanks for the great...relaxing stay...Will be Back!
