Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Hotel
A little bit noisy on week-ends, we had a street side room.
Nice historic building in the middle of the action in Austin.
Steps from the Capitol, 6th street, excellent restaurants and next door to the Paramount Theater.
Very nice comfortable room with excellent amenities.
Valet service is great and prompt.
Would make bottled water available free to all guests or ambassador members.
Thank you, specially to the cleaning staff for maintaining our room sparkly clean and refilling all supplies without us having to ask.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KC24 Great Place to Stay When in Austin
This hotel is in downtown Austin and within walking distance to the state Capitol as well as other Austin attractions. The hotel staff are amazing and the rooms are small but beautiful. My favorite part of staying at the SFA is sitting on the outside balcony of the second floor lounge and enjoying a cool drink while watching the activity on Congress Avenue. I highly recommend this hotel if it is in your budget.

Check out had a long line, so I dropped off keys and went on my way. I still have not received an invoice or any communication other than this email.
Not good business; will have to protest credit card charge to get bill.

I chose the InterContinental mainly for price and location. Luckily, I got an upgrade to a corner King on an upper floor. I was the envy of my co-workers.

Thank you once again for such an incredible stay at your property.
Our room and view of Austin was simply amazing. The spaciousness of our room and the attentiveness to our every need by your entire Team was Top Notch.
I had accidentally left my Louis Vitton clutch at the front desk when checking in and the very next morning upon our departure I had mentioned to the bell"woman" that I could not find my wallet and when we reached the lobby she asked the front desk and they had put it in the safe for me. Apparently, they had also left me a voicemail in my room but I did not check the message. Thank you so much for your honesty -
We are so excited to return and want to thank everyone on your staff for our Royal Treatment - each and every person visiting the beautiful city of Austin should experience the Intercontinental Hotel.

Very friendly staff at the front door and front desk. Very well kept hotel and nice room. My only complaint is the sheets were not fitted on the bottom and would come off the bed. Nice bar and outdoor terrace and a great location!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by StaceyJ Atmosphere of a small boutique hotel with all of the businesss amenities
The hotel was in the perfect location for business in downtown Austin. The staff was very knowledgeable about the area and quick to respond to all guest needs. Loved the cozy bar and terrace.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TexasBronco74 Room Cooling Issue
The AC was on the entire time of the stay yet the room would not get below around 72 degrees. We complained several times to the front desk and maintenance was sent up twice. Maintenance informed us that it was cooling as intended. I found this very disappointing as a proper cooling system should cool to the point of the thermostat setting, in this case 67 degrees. We will not be staying at this hotel in the future. For the rate that was paid, we could have been offered a discount on our rate at the least.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Why a $15.00 p/day room charge for Wifi/internet access???
Everything was great except for the hotel wanting to charge for internet in the rooms. You are a high value facility and in my humbled opinion this should be a standard "no charge" service like most every other hotel we've stayed at.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by XYZDAL Very fine luxury experience downtown.
Everything and all staff (except one) were excellent! We arrived just before noon so rooms were not ready at check-in. As we were about to get in our car to go to our son's apartment 'til check-in, the desk clerk hurried out to the curb to inform us that one room was ready. This was important because we had driven from out of town for an event and needed to change clothes. Wonderful effort!
Now to the one staffer; as we were unloading, one bellman was so eager to help with our bags that he roughly handled one bag and spilled a personal item that broke. He did not attempt to determine the damage nor apologize. The bags were not more than we could handle ourselves yet the eager bellman made it seem like a competition to see if he could get the bag first, with a negative result.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Austin Interview Excellent service
This hotel was overall very good. It's location made it easy to get around town. Check in was straightforward, and the front desk was more than accommodating. Our room was not ready yet when we arrived, but they quickly prepared it for us. While waiting, they provided my daughters with coloring books and crayons. Concierge, valet, and housekeeping were excellent and efficient. The room was dated, but overall comfortable, quiet and clean. The pullout couch was the most comfortable we've ever slept on, but my youngest refused to sleep in the very old metal crib provided. My oldest daughter accidentally broke a glass in the sink, and housekeeping cleaned it up very quickly for us. Internet access was good. We ate at both hotel restaurants; the Roaring Fork was excellent. No one seemed to know what benefits we were to receive as Ambassador members, so our last meal at the hotel was complimentary thanks to the front desk. The staff made this a very enjoyable stay for us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jenjvail Wedding Reception!
We worked with the staff at SFA for 10 months before our reception and could not be happier with every person we dealt with. All were very helpful, willing to make changes, help with room assignments, and every detail related to our reception for 325 plus the many guests staying at hotel. I heard from many guests how friendly and helpful the staff was including bartenders who remembered drink orders!
I will definitely recommend this hotel for a wedding reception. I only didn't sleep well due to no fan in the room, should have brought my sound machine!

The bedside controls were very convenient to use however the ability to have the room stay at a comfortable temperature was almost impossible. It was either always too hot or too cold.

This is a beautiful hotel and the services are excellent. I would especially like to commend the concierge service, especially Trisha, who was excellent in helping us find what we needed, even an Urgent Care to take care of a medical issue. She is a true professional and we thank her so much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emdenlady Wonderful hotel
This was a wonderful hotel. It is perfectly located near theater, restaurants, and shops in downtown Austin, but also, by being down a side street, remarkably quiet. The room was large and comfortable and I did not hear a sound from the other rooms my entire stay. They also have a large safe that one can fit a computer in, which was a nice way to leave my work in my room and not worry when i went out in the evenings. The staff were very friendly, efficient and professional. If i come back to Austin, I would chose to stay here again.

Great Location and very nice room
The "Club" is not a welcome place as it is situated on the groundfoor directed to a parking lot and street. The Service in this Club in day time wasn't approbate! Variaty of beverages, Drinks to be rated low. We didn't feel welcome. Breakfast?!
We have seen better IC Clubs #Exsample: Shanghai#

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PO'ed Guest You Gotta Be Kidding!
The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. That was the good part. But I was very put off by the hotel's "nickel and diming" - most prominently in its restaurant's food prices AND in charging 50 cents A MINUTE to use the Internet in the so-called "business center!" At my attorneys group's morning breakfast meetings the staff was way to eager to take away our plates and cleared away the buffet spread early with the obvious purpose of discouraging people from second servings. Equally bad, the steak served to our attorneys group at its Friday night banquet was inedible - it was rubbery and tasteless as a chunk of cardboard. When one of our group sent back his portion and asked for a piece a little less cooked, he got back a steak that was barely warm on the outside and totally raw on the inside. The only explanation given when he complained again was that "we have three events going tonight." And the "salad," such as it was, consisted of overdressed, wilted mystery lettuce. Just shameful. Next time I'll stay elsewhere.
