Loved the location, cleanliness, and trendy rooftop pool at this Hampton Inn. My room was spacious for two people and made for a welcome retreat at the end of a long day. The front desk staff were very amiable and helpful in making dining recommendations. Fabulous ethnic cuisine surrounds in this eclectic neighborhood. The breakfast buffet, especially the TX state-shaped...

This was my first time staying in the Downtown area of Austin, TX. I had a great experience. Close to the Capital which is where I wanted to be. I upgraded to a suite with a view and the view was fantastic. Would book again. I would highly recommend this Hotel.

OK this is one of those everything went right until something went wrong reviews. What is important what went wrong was not on purpose and was handled to our satisfaction by the management in a quick manner. We would stay at this hotel again and do recommend it. Very easy parking provided.

I have never been to a Hampton where I had to pay for parking, but the hotel was nice. The breakfast includes big, warm southern biscuits and gravy as well as Texas shaped waffles! Stayed for a night in Austin and it was a fine stay.

Dear Julianne D, Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor. I understand your frustration with parking prices. We are in line and more cost efficient than most hotels in the city center. The Downtown Hampton Inn only has valet parking and charge $35.00 per night. Thank you for the kind words about our hotel and breakfast. We hope you will...

We ended up here after taking one look at our La Quinta hotel and turning right back around. This place is very nice! Not one complaint. Clean. New. Friendly. Nice rooms. Allowed our dog. The breakfast was fantastic as well. They had everything you could want. The best part was that it was reasonably priced right in downtown Austin. Will...

No room service, but lots of restaurants within walking distance. Other than that, the staff and the accommodations were really excellent.. especially for the money. The front desk staff are super friendly and helpful.. will definitely be staying there on my next trip to Austin.

Very friendly staff and good service. Austin is not that big so it is relatively not far from downtown. walking distance to the university campus and capitol building. I love the breakfast. Packing is kind of on the expensive side $21+.

Recently I stayed at Hampton Inn downtown Austin, it was very nice and clean. Staff was friendly but not always available, when I got there to check in I stood at the front for 5-8 minutes waiting for someone to come to the deck.
