Beautiful hotel, throughout. Walking distance to everything. Best located hotel in the City. Food and Drinks are amazing and the 2nd floor terrace was wonderful. I loved the crystal clear pool and jacuzzi with piped in music - nice touches with the complementary fruit and cucumber infused ice water.

Great hotel and close in to walk to everything downtown. The amenities are outstanding with great happy hour. Rooms are nicely decorated, bedding is luxurious. We had a small suite that was like being at home. Highly recommend.

The Intercontinental is located in the heart of downtown Austin, within a short walk to many eat, drink and experience the best that the city has to offer. The hotel itself is comfortable, with friendly staff, but does lack some amenities. For anyone looking to visit Austin and stay close to the action the Intercontinental is a good bet.

The InterContinental Stephen F Austin staff was professional, enthusiastic and pro-active and made my job easy. The banquet staff was attentive, the front desk was helpful and the housemen were there when I needed them. Our meeting was successful from check-in to check-out.

During a crazy week in Austin, the InterContinental managed to meet every need I threw at them. Change from a King Bedroom to Doubles? Yep. Help me figure out the Uber-desert of the city? Yep.

My sister was married in Austin, and both families stayed here for the weekend. I recommend getting the concierge level access as it definitely pays off, not only in terms of food, wine/alcohol, and espressos but also allows for a quieter experience while you have breakfast/tea/happy hour. The hotel is a beautiful historic building that has been updated nicely. The...

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
