I was really impressed upon walking in the front door. I knew it was a great location (close to downtown, capitol and university), but I didn't expect the rooms to be so nice! There was a sizable balcony and sitting area steps away from the bed, making for a great place to have a drink before heading out for the night. There isn't a restaurant inside, but you do have 24-hour access to snacks and drinks in the market. There are a ton of great restaurants and bars very close, so lack of a resto doesn't bother me! Other goodies include a nice gym, swimming pool and business center.

The Hampton Inn and Suites are located blocks away from campus in a newer or renovated that mostly has student housing around it. The building is modern and clean but the décor for the lobby is definitely a “Keep Austin Weird” theme with the artistic graffiti on the walls and unique furniture. The rooms though are a tad different as they are simpler and modern without the loud décor. The basic rooms come with your normal amenities and the suites come with a sofa sleeper, mini-fridge and microwave. The hotel offers free continental breakfast or breakfast bag to go, free Wi-FI, a rooftop pool overlooking downtown Austin and a gym. Besides being near campus it is also within walking distance to the Capital of Texas, Governor’s Mansion and the Bob Bullock museum.

If you want to get a taste of Austin’s unique, spicy flavor, then The Hampton Inn on Lavaca is the place for you. This clean and luxurious hotel is peppered with quirky homages to The Live Music Capital. Illustrated guitars line the halls, cowhide couch cushions decorate the lobby, and an artsy graffiti wall ties the whole aesthetic together. Even the bedrooms salute the Austin music scene with TVs tuned to a slideshow of Austin City Limits musicians. The beds are as plush as you would expect from a trendy downtown hotel, and the bathrooms offer plenty of counter space to frill up your ‘do. The rooftop pool, though small, has an excellent view of the city’s skyline. The soft lounge chairs and canopied picnic area make this little nook an ideal spot for winding down after an exhilarating concert.

Hampton Inn at the University/Capitol is decent option if you are doing business at the university. It’s also a decent option if you’re doing business downtown, though there are closer options downtown. You will also find similar priced hotels downtown. You will be able to access most of Austin via car, though if you want to take alternative transportation, such as a bicycle or bus, you will have easy access via this location. Certain rooms in the hotel have beautiful views of downtown, the Texas Hill Country, in addition to views of the Texas State Capitol Building. The rooms are spacious and clean. There are multiple options for beds setups; two twin, queen and king. For the price, I think you will be able to find better locations, though this isn’t the worst location for doing things downtown or at the university.
