I stayed a week at the Hampton Inn & Suites Austin at The University/Capitol for a business trip. I absolutely loved my stay there! The location is fantastic! The room is very nice and comfortable. The workout room was good. The outdoor pool was nice with an amazing view of Austin. The room has a nice mini-refrigerator which was great...

One of the nicest Hampton Inn and Suites I have stayed in. Beautiful rooms, great views and very clean. Great location in downtown Austin within walking distance of UT, Capitol building and many restaurants and bars.

These folks are the BEST! Yes, the location is great, near the University of Teas and near the State Capital offices. But it is the staff that keeps me coming back! Always cheery, greet me by name, and make every accommodation to make my stay wonderful.

Upon entering the hotel you immediately notice how friendly their staff is. They are all very helpful. The breakfast is better than other Hampton Inn, but to be honest that is not a difficult task. They do have a lot of the same standard (terrible) options other Hamptons have, but they also have some extra stuff such as croissants and...

I spent two nights here last weekend and was quite pleased with my choice. Breakfast was good (especially the waffles, and meats for breakfast tacos - yum!). Room was clean. Housekeeping did all you might hope they do. While I tend to be bothered whenever a hotel charges for parking, I believe this hotel's $20 nightly rate is the best...

We stayed here for a WGU Graduation event so it was convenient to the venue but the traffic and parking in the area is terrible.

It's a Hampton. Location was good for what I needed e.g. walk to the conference center. A few good restaurants walking distance. Staff was accommodating. Breakfast area and lounge was a nice spot. My room was aged, a bit beat up. Parking was convenient.

This is a really nice Hampton Inn. Super clean, new, and in a great location. Everyone is friendly, underground parking is easy and rooms are really nice. Breakfast was plentiful and hot and I love that they have flavored creamer for coffee. I've stayed here twice and will return.

Super room, great view. The lobby was very clean and although I did not eat breakfast, I heard other guests comment on how good it was. The convenience to UT Austin and the Capitol is ideal. Easy to get to and easy to leave from. Parking garage feels safe and easy access to rooms. I would definitely stay here again.
