Ambiance and Service could not be better! Every employee is friendly and they can not do enough to make certain that your stay is enjoyable. There is a beautiful pool and if you are a UT fan, you can walk to the stadium.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

With activities planned on the University of Texas campus, lunch and dinner plans downtown, and a wedding rehearsal dinner just outside of Austin to attend, the Hampton Inn was just right for us. Our third-floor room was comfortable, with great WIFI and space for all our devices, and the bed couldn't have been cozier! The fifth-floor outdoor pool and lounging...

This hotel has been here for at least 25+ years. While the room's walls, ceilings, bathroom, and layout are dated, the furniture, colors, sinks, HVAC, and workspaces has been updated and nicely appointed. Being old this hotel has much thicker walls and floors, so you don't hear every noise around you. The staff is extremely helpful and cheerful. The lobby/breakfast...

This hotel is conveniently located next to UT Austin and within walking distance or a short cab/fasten ride to all the hotspots downtown. It has a great complimentary real breakfast and the fact that you can bring your dog is a great plus. They even have doggie treats at the front desk. The rooms are huge with plenty of space...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay this past weekend while visiting my daughter for a Mom's weekend with her. I arrived a little early, but my room was ready and neat.

I have stayed at most hotels in Austin and every hotel has wonderful staff. Yet, here at this Hampton Inn (Lavaca Street) they go out of their way to make you feel at home and vert welcome.

Really enjoyed the breakfast. The staff was very friendly. As a Hilton Diamond member I was upgraded to a corner room with a nice balcony and great views of campus and downtown. Can't say enough about the location...amazing!

Good location if you are going to a university function or to the capital building. Not many great restaurants immediately surrounding the hotel. Pillows were not great. I much preferred the Hampton Inn Downtown Austin.
