Very small room
There was a discrepancy between the rate booking have me and the hotel. The hotel charged me more with no clear explanation.
It was beautiful
A little pricey
I always in enjoy stay at SFA because of its location and cost plus the hotel look and the manners of lobby staff.
I had to readjust the shower head the first night because it was spraying upwards from the spout. The second issue was housekeeping knocked on my door three different times before checkout. I don't sleep well and when I finally get to sleep its very annoying to be awaken by the tapping with a roomkey on the door. I thought it very inconsiderate and unprofessional.
The staff at this hotel goes out of the way to make you feel special and make sure every need is met. Eleni especially went above and beyond to make my mom's birthday special.
The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin originated in 1924 as the first high-rise building in downtown Austin. Due to its proximity to the business and entertainment district and the state Capitol, corporate travelers and Texan politicians are often seen at the hotel and restaurant.
Intercontinental Stephen F Austin is located downtown along the main Congress Avenue. It sits beside the historic Paramount Theatre and is three blocks from Austin’s Capitol building. Just one block north of Sixth Street, guests are close to an array of famous bars, music venues, and eateries. The Austin Convention Center is a 15-minute walk, The University of Texas at Austin’s main campus is a short ride away, and South Congress Avenue is also just a short drive from the hotel.
The 189 rooms of InterContinental Stephen F. Austin were renovated with an old-Texas design in 2013. They vary in size and are comfortably outfitted with great beds, Keurig machines, and flat-screen TVs. The rooms are convenient but it’s the on-site dining offerings such as Roaring Fork that is one of the best-rated places to eat in the city. Additionally, the hotel's bar is where many state's legislators meet. Other amenities include a gym, indoor lap pool, hot tub, business center, and meeting rooms.
Rich history, luxury accommodations, and close proximities make Intercontinental Stephen F Austin a unique hotel experience. Downtown Austin is a large business-friendly area and location for enterprise headquarters and the state Capitol. The hotel caters to travelers through many amenities and accommodations.
