Overview

Rooms were recently renovated in 2013
Valet parking is the only option, and it's pricey

Residing in the heart of downtown Austin – just one block from rambunctious Sixth Street – the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin is ideal for anyone looking to be at the center of the action. (However, previous visitors warn that you will pay for the location in parking fees.) And though we doubt you'll spend much time in the hotel, the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin does boast a sauna, indoor lap pool, whirlpool and fitness center should you prefer pumping iron to partying. Whether you're planning on going out or staying in, start your night off with dinner and drinks at Stephen F.'s Bar & Terrace, which serves up an eclectic menu of entrees and shareable small plates. And when you're ready to catch up on some zzz's, previous guests say that the rooms –with their custom furniture and neutral tones – will have you snoozing in style. Plus, IHG Rewards Club members can indulge for free using rewards points at this InterContinental property.
