Greeted by Win who provided excellent service with a smile. After being stuck in Austin traffic for over an hour, the friendly and helpful greeting/service makes a big difference! Beautiful, modern, and clean room. Super comfortable bed and pillows.

From the time we checked in with Win, who was very friendly,we found our stay to be ideal. We stayed for three nights and had two rooms, each with two queen beds. The rooms were comfortable and we used the bar fridges. The breakfast was great. We made waffles in the shape of Texas. There was fresh fruit salad, cereal,...

This Hampton Inn is on the north side of downtown between the capitol building and UT. It is very well maintained and has underground parking that is very secure. If you're looking to be near 6th St., than this hotel is a bit of a walk; however if you're looking to be a little away from that scene but still...

The welcome staff were quick, efficient and nice. The room was fairly quiet which was great. The breakfast was standard buffet type food, stale and tasteless. But the mattress was horrid so sleep was non-existent which ruined the entire night.
