Reviewed 17 May 2014

Our stay could not have been better. Everything was perfect and the location allowed us to walk to many sites. The traffic in downtown Austin was a breeze but I do suggest staying off the expressways when possible.
Parking under the hotel is easy but the price of $19 is steep. Great restaurants are within walking distance or two to three miles easy driving.
The staff at this hotel exhibit a high degree of professionalism and seem very sincere that you have a great stay.

Room Tip: Great location so as to visit Fredricksburg one day and the LBJ attractions around Johnson City anot...

stayed last night at this Hampton Inn and suites and was blown away at what a great boutique style hotel it was. THIS is NOT you regular Hampton Inn and Suites. The service was exceptional the front desk knows what the hospitality industry is all about. Shaye the young man at the front desk was so helpful and goes out of his way to make sure you are taken care of. This is a team that gives 5 star service!!!!! Sean the GM was in the lobby to meet and greet the guests as they arrive and makes all the guests feel very welcome. The room was very clean and comfortable the housekeeping team does a great job. I will always stay here. Great job to the GM and his team.

Room Tip: Fitness Center is very very nice,

We stayed here because this hotel had great reviews. We were not disappointed! We brought our dog, no problem. Beautiful room with large balcony. Very clean! I would love to see less processed food for breakfast but in general a great place to stay.

Dear Nancy G,

Thank you for your feedback on tripadvisor. I was happy to see that you read the reviews on tripadvisor and that we didn't disappoint. I agree about Hamptons processed foods, however we follow our Hilton Hampton Inn standards and I know Hilton is always working on improving its breakfast. We look forward to your next stay with us.

We decided to pay a bit more to be right down in the middle of the Austin action. (Although Expedia had a 30% off sale which made it a no-brainer.) This has great location, large quiet rooms, ample breakfast in a huge dining area. I'll make it my first choice from now on.

We arrived around midnight and Darby welcomed us by getting us into a room quickly. We were in Austin to celebrate my best friend's birthday and I had asked for a room with a view. The one we were given did not have a view but Darby put us in one the very next morning. In fact, she upgraded us to a lovely King Suite. Lindsey arranged for someone to help us move our luggage. My best friend was very touched by the surprise that Lindsey brought her of a bottle of champagne, two glasses, and a card signed by the staff. Belinda was wonderful as well. Whatever we needed they went out of their way to help us. They called our cabs for us and if we needed something they made sure we got it. The front desk and the rest of the staff were very friendly. The hotel is beautiful and very well kept. The roof top pool is very relaxing and provides a wonderful view of the capitol. I highly recommend this hotel and was very satisfied with the service. I will definitely be staying there again.

This felt like a boutique hotel, but had all of the expected comforts of a Hampton Inn. Nothing but good things to say about Darby and her fellow staff that we encountered during our recent weekend stay in Austin. It's a perfect combo of the "keep Austin weird' vibe and the Hampton '100% guarantee' reliability.

The website pictures should give you a good idea of the look and feel of the place, but they don't capture the staff's upbeat morale. Other stuff to note: breakfast had the Hampton standards but was especially well furnished and staff was more attentive than at a typical Hampton. Extra high ceilings give the room a spacious feel. Location is good in a general sort of way, but expect to be surrounded by parking garages and other state office-affiliated buildings. No view from our room, and looks like that's going to be the case for many. Pool deck is nice, as is the exercise room.

Would stay here again without reservation.

My wife stayed here for a conference being held at the AT&T Center. The location couldnt have been better, and she had a suite with a kingsize bed and balcony. She was very happy.

But where the hotel stuck out was in the amazing service. The assistant general manager Darby helped me surprise my wife with treats for the weekend. To say she went beyond her duty is an understatement.

Maybe next time I can go...
