This is a good Hampton Inn. The location is pretty central and easily reached by local ride share (think non-profit Uber type service) and public transportation. Breakfast is good enough to get you going for the day. The front desk staff is nice and helpful.

Great location near the UT campus and downtown. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The pool area was spacious and enough chairs for guests. Would definitely go back.

Dear Arapoport, Thank you for the review on tripadvisor. I was pleased to read that you "felt so comfy, warm and friendly". I was pleased to see that our staff and hotel exceeded your expectations.

Everything was a great stay but the room rate was outrageous. These students were in the city for a History Fair for one night and the rate was not to friendly. Should have some kind of room rates for schools.

Dear 212maes, Thank you for your review on tripadvisor. I am happy you had a great stay and sorry our rate was "outrageous". We follow the market conditions and price ourselves accordingly. Unfortunately with session and high demand come high rates. We do have sister properties outside of the downtown area that are more price sensitive. Thank you for staying...

My room's window opened into a dusky corridor. Why imitate a window at all? For one night's stay that would be fine. However, for a longer stay this is unacceptable, as this means a guest is deprived of natural daylight over a prolonged period.

It was a great stay. The rooms were large and clean. The fitness centre had equipment that was well maintained. Breakfast was delicious. The staff was able to cater to all of my needs. I've stayed at a number of hotels in recent months, and this was probably the best stay I've had lately.

A large, clean and conveniently located hotel near the University of Texas and the LBJ Presidential Museum and Library. However, the rooms are way overpriced plus you pay an additional $19 per day for parking. Additionally we had an interior room with no windows, which makes all of the room lighting artificial.
