I stayed at this hotel for a conference and could not have been more pleased with my decision. Me and my fellow conference attendees had an absolutely blast at this hotel and will definitely be coming...

My husband and I found this hotel online during a busy weekend in Austin. They had some of the best rates in town without being a lesser-quality hotel. The check-in staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. We had the most basic room but it was still super nice and clean. It felt like luxury! We would absolutely stay here again!

I was in Austin for both business and pleasure. The Hampton in on Lavaca is the cleanest, quietest Hampton I have ever stayed in. The Pool on the 5th floors has a very relaxing patio area to view the City and the Capitol. The Breakfast was outstanding. If you are going to the State House or attending something at the...

The rooms are clean and the staff are super nice/helpful. We enjoyed the pool on the roof and the comp breakfast was good. Its just blocks away from the University so is an easy walk. Online check-in is a nice feature, made our late arrival quick and easy.

Dear Dady8tor, Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. I understand your frustration with hot water and agree. We have new high tech tankless water heaters and have had issues with the motherboards. We have had them all replaced and they should all be working and have been. We will continue to monitor.

Hampton Inns are usually great hotels; this one lives up to that. Very clean and modern - the location is quite near the UT campus, which is convenient for those (like me) attending conferences on the campus.

This is a really nice hotel conveniently located to the University. We were visiting for an accepted student event and were able to walk to our events. The hotel has modern rooms, high ceilings and even a ceiling fan. The beds and pillows are very comfortable which is not always the case with hotels. The rooms are extremely quiet which...

The staff were extremely helpful! The mattress slept like a new one, it was very comfortable. The internet worked well. The radio was the only device that was poor quality. The television reception was good.
