We wanted a clean, reasonable hotel close to UT. This Hampton delivered on a accounts. I'm not sure how old it is, but it appears to be new as everything is so clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly. Our kids enjoyed the rooftop pool with the view of the Capitol. Please note: Parking is extra and is...

This was a great place to stay. Excellent staff and amenities. The staff were very attentive and went above and beyond to make the stay comfortable. Excellent bed and room styles gave an extremely peaceful feel. Well-equipped fitness room for a hotel as well.

This is a fantastic hotel. Every interaction I had with every component of the hotel: the room, the staff, the housekeeping, the luggage service, was all great. It's also in an excellent location, highlight locations like Capitol Building, UT Campus and Guadalupe Street are all within easy walking distance. I was here for 5 days with no car and I...

I am a loyal Hampton Inn guest. Of all the Hiltons, I prefer Hampton Inn the most. Maybe because of my affinity for the bottomless cup of coffee. I will pass up certain amenities to have the ability to work late. This Hampton was probably the nicest one I have visited in my 15 years of traveling. Beautiful, happy, friendly....

The staff was both knowledgeable about the city and helpful with suggestions of things to do. Room was very clean with a great view of the capitol building. Where else can you make a waffle shaped like the state of Texas!

Great room. Cool layout and I thought the bed was very comfortable. Staff was great and gave us free water upon arrival and later in the night when I was thirsty. Everyone we came into contact with was pleasant.

We spent 3 nights here on a recent trip to Austin and wasn't sure what to expect. We were greeted by Jennifer, who was nothing sort of fantastic. She upgraded us on arrival and helped us change our big bills, which was beyond helpful. The room itself was massive and the bed was super soft, large bathroom (including large shower!)...

I've stayed at this location multiple times. It's a fairly new hotel and the staff are reasonably Helpful. The hotel is clean. It's very disappointing to find another hotel where diamond members are not recognized in any way and where you won't receive any upgrades.

We're Austinites, so staying at a hotel in town is pretty rare, but we've spent a couple of anniversaries and football weekends downtown and have really enjoyed this hotel. Convenient to downtown and UT activities, yet a bit off the beaten path, the Hampton at the Capitol feels like a bit of luxury at a business hotel price. I stay...
