Bottom Line

The 124-room Hampton Inn Austin - Arboretum Northwest is a mid-range property that caters to business travelers and families and is located in a quiet and leafy neighborhood just outside of Austin. Rooms are a bit dated in decor, but are spotlessly clean and equipped with coffeemakers, mini-fridges, and free Wi-Fi. Though this is an older property, there is a continuous renovation program underway, which keeps the interiors looking neat and tidy. Features include an outdoor pool, tiny fitness center, meeting rooms, business center, and free hot buffet breakfast. For something with more sophisticated interiors at similar rates, travelers might want to consider the Holiday Inn Austin Midtown.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Chain hotel popular with corporate travelers and families 

Located on leafy grounds, the exterior building of the Hampton Inn Austin - Arboretum Northwest is uninspiring and has an institutional look. The hotel lobby in contrast has a cozy and pleasant feel, with country house inspired decor, wooden floors, stone walls, exposed beams, a few attractive pieces of old-fashioned furniture, and wooden sliding doors. There’s plenty of seating in the lobby area, with tables and chairs arranged in cafe-style clusters as well as comfy sofas. The busy patterned carpets in the corridors, however, look drab and dated and are due for an update. The hotel attracts many business travelers because of its proximity to the company offices of many major corporations, but families are also frequent guests, thanks to the hotel’s family-friendly policy.

Location

Located in a quiet, leafy neighborhood outside of central Austin

Rooms

Clean and comfortable rooms decorated in a classic style

The guest rooms at Hampton Inn Austin - Arboretum Northwest are decorated in a classic style: The simple pine furniture contrasts with the dark brown hue of the carpet, curtains, and accent walls. Though the rooms are spacious, some can seem cramped thanks to low ceilings and an overabundance of furniture. Tasteful photography prints decorate the walls, while floor lamps and armchairs provide a cozy touch. The bathrooms are pleasant and spacious, with marble-topped sinks, shower/tub combos, and attractive floor tiles in beige marble tones. All rooms have air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, coffee- and tea-making facilities, mini-fridges, free Wi-Fi, work desks with ergonomic chairs, and Neutrogena products in the bathrooms. Accessible rooms are also available.

Features

Free hot American breakfast, outdoor pool, and tiny fitness center

Guests are served a free American buffet breakfast in the breakfast room each morning with a variety of hot dishes like omelets, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, French toast, bagels, cinnamon rolls, and donuts. The outdoor pool is exceptionally clean and filled with salt water. But the fitness center is tiny and equipped with only a few machines and weights for a basic workout. The hotel offers free business services like fax, photocopying, and printing, as well as a business center and meeting and event space. Basic Wi-Fi is available for free throughout the hotel, but guests who require a higher bandwidth can request this for an extra fee.
