This hotel is at the finish line of the Austin Marathon. Super comfortable rooms with bedside remote for the lights and thermostat. Spacious gym with an indoor hot tub and small lap pool. My second stay here.

Feel confident knowing the hotel staff will take care of your needs. The concierge was extremely helpful with a map and directions to the places I wanted to visit after the conference I attended. The hotel is beautiful.

Hotel has an excellent staff, always accommodating to all needs. Love the ability to meet in the bar area if I require a meeting. It is the perfect setting to have a meeting without tons of people. Highly recommend, personally one of my favorites.

Excellent hotel in a great location. Everything for dinner is in walking distance. Capital is in view with the Paramount Theater next door. The 2nd floor balcony bar was really nice. The parking was only bad thing $50.00 and no other option.

Well located in the heart of Austin and in walking distance to the Capitol, the Intercontinental is a lovely hotel. The rooms are well appointed and quite comfortable. The bar offers pleasant outdoor seating on the balcony overlooking Congress Avenue with a drink and a light fare menu we very much enjoyed. The staff is friendly and professional. All in...

On business, very convenient walk to State Capital..Smallish rooms but very well decorated and the remote for lighting and ac was a high tech treat! Great resturants within walking... Suprised at the $40. per day parking but it was unlimited in and out valet.. And valet ran to our car when we needed something out of it and delivered it......

I have never been let down when I stay at the Stephen F. Austin Hotel. The location is wonderful and the staff is superb. The concierge service is extremely helpful and having the Roaring Folk on the premises is an added plus for business travelers.

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
