Hampton Inn and Suites Austin - Downtown/Convention Center Hotel Review: Bringing a New Orleans flavor to the Texas Capitol, this hotel enjoys a prime location in the heart of all the action. The look is straight out of New Orleans, particularly the charming wrought-iron veranda. At the same time, an Austin vibe can be found in the historic city photos that line the walls. The sixteen-story hotel is near the shores of Lady Bird Lake, a block from the Austin Convention Center and a few blocks from the Texas State Capitol. All of downtown's restaurants, nightlife and entertainment are a short distance by foot or cab. The 209 guest rooms and suites come with large, ergonomic work spaces and even lap desks that can be used in bed. One-bedroom suites with microwaves and sleeper sofas are also available. Guests can enjoy the fitness center and fourth-floor outdoor pool. And for work needs, there is a business center, meeting rooms and Wi-Fi (included). The complimentary daily breakfast features hot and cold items, and the hotel also provides an On The Run Breakfast Bag. In keeping with the New Orleans flavor, Le Cafe Crepe is a great place to satisfy your sweet tooth or enjoy a drink.
