The Hotel finished a multimillion dollar renovation of all guestrooms, suites and public areas in March of 2013.
Affectionately known as the ‘Stephen F,’ this Austin luxury hotel is ideally placed on Congress Avenue. The unique Art Deco façade is a famous Austin landmark and has been part of the city scene for more than 60 years. At the heart of the culture capital of Texas, this Austin luxury hotel is just blocks from art museums, the state capitol and right next door to Paramount Theatre.

Going back to the Stephen F.Austin is like going home. Its size is just right, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Even if it is a pity some room service staff have no English. And even if, although I had paid all my expenses in full on
leaving and made sure I had, my credit card has been debited for no valid reason...As I have not a US credit card I am charged by my bank a ridiculous amount for $3.
It all had to do with phoning from the room I think. The charge for local calls is ludicrous: 1,50 $, whatever the time spent. Also it is a pity the public phone that used to be off the lobby has been removed and not been replaced. Which makes it awkward if you do not have a cell phone. as I did not, not living in the U.S.
Have not had time to deal with that charge I did not owe yet. But pity that should happen.
The bar on the second floor boasts with reason the best terrace in Austin. The view from there on the Capitol is great. The bar food is pretty uneven though and that side of things could be improved. The crab cake from the first floor restaurant, though, is incredibly good.
As for the rooms, they are "friendly", comfortable without going overboard. Pity I had no light in the small lobby as it made the closet rather dark. The bathrooms are fine too.
Will go back there with pleasure if the opportunity arises.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
