Today is Mission:Delicious Brisket. I have heard many many many times that Franklin BBQ is the place to go for Q in Austin. We have also read that the wait can be over an hour and that does not even guarantee that you will be eating any of their fine food. With it still being mighty chilly outside we decided to go to the 2nd highest rated BBQ the …

Today we drove the short 80 miles north to Austin, the most liberal city in Texas. Well that's at least what we have heard. So I'm looking forward to meeting all the gay pot smoking Obama loving Texas residents. It should be just like being back in SF!

We broke up the drive with lunch in Greune a small down just south of Austin. We hit up …

The diet starts Monday.
After the event I saw several people filling out applications to join the bone marrow registry. Hopefully our stories helped to increase the number of people who joined the bone marrow registry today.

... faded quickly when I found myself immersed in masses of drunken, scantily-clad college students in Spring Break heaven... Panama City, Florida. Not only was this the setting, but I was sharing in the debauchery with some of my closest friends, Steven and Brian. Steven and I have been surfing together since high school, and we had rideable waves both days. The first day was a little choppy and it was a bit overcast, but the second day hot ...

    Had a nice little happy hour M-F with seemingly unlimited drinks and a simple self serve nacho bar. Great breakfast buffet also. Rooms were updated and nice. Valet was nowhere to be found when we arrived and there is no other choice but valet parking.

    This hotel was a true reflection of the city it was built in. Probably the only hotel I've ever been in with a grafitti wall in the lobby! Rooms were so quiet and the sheets were brushed microfibre that were the softest I've ever slept in. I actually asked the staff if I could buy a set of sheets from them.

    Gliding Revolution-Downtown Segway Glide


    I just visited Hampton Inn in downtown Austin and found out about the Segway tours. After contacting Seg City we were dissapointed to find out that they were booked for the day that my family wanted to do the tour. We were told by the Concierge that Gliding Revolution also did the tours in downtown Austin. We contacted Gliding Revolution and signed up for a glide. The experience was amazing, gliding on the trails around the River (Town Lake) and up to the capital of Texas. I would recommend this touring company to anyone interested in keeping the town weird. We got so many looks and everyone seemed to be positive about the machine.

    We found the information by glidingrevolution.




    First of all, I had stayed at this hotel two years ago and absolutely loved it. No complaints, very nice. I even recommended to others. A group from my work had to attend a convention at the convention center that is one block from this hotel. I told my collegues that I had stayed at this hotel before and how great it was. They told me to book it. I booked it in April, our convention was in the middle of July. The following are the problems we had:

    Excellent choice for downtown Austin!


    We visited Austin for the first time (ashamed to say we live just 3 hours north!) and are so grateful we followed the reviews to the Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown. Still shiny and new, the size is perfect and the location even better. Just a short walk to everything you can imagine visiting. We've stayed at Hampton Inns before and while they were fine, this one is much better! The breakfast goes beyond your typical Hamtpon Inn fare and the rooms are lovely, with good views. Those signs in the elevators just made me smile! We took the advice of fellow reviews and had diner next door at...The Cedar Door! Yum, so good and very affordable. Short walk down the street and over to the river to see the bats. Finally, we can't say enough about the SEGWAY tour from Segcity on 6th street. A three hour tour around downtown is just $65 and was honestly one of the best adventures of our lives! So much fun!

    Great, affordable place


    Just got back from a weekend stay at the Hampton Inn...

    Great hotel for the price


    I stayed here for 4 days during SXSW. Apart from they guy who checked us in everything was great. Rooms are clean and include a small refridgerator. The rest of the hotel is very nice and its located in a great place, close to the convention center as well as 6th street. I'm looking forward to staying here again for next years SXSW.

    Staff treated us right


    I reserved a room for my parents here last weekend. I had a certificate for a free night, so I feared they wouldn't make us a priority. I shouldn't have worried because they upgraded the room to a suite that had a refrigerator and microwave when we arrived to check in. There were nice little touches in the room such as cookies and popcorn. The entire staff was very professional and more courteous than any other hotel I've stayed in. My parents enjoyed the breakfast as well. The only thing I didn't like was the parking fee, but that's pretty reasonable for downtown Austin. Overall, I was very pleased.

    Great value and convenience in downtown austin


    I recently stayed at the Hampton Inn Downtown for my first trip to Austin. Considered other options, including some that are unique to Austin, but didn't want to spend a lot of money or end up in some place that was long on character but short of cleanliness or privacy. Hampton Inn Downtown really worked out great. My room was really like a luxury hotel -- maybe slightly smaller, but otherwise all the amenities (new furniture and carpeting, chair and desk, big tv, coffee maker, marble in the bathroom, lots of towels) were really like a higher end hotel. (I paid $67 per night for my room, but I'd consider that room a solid value for twice the price.) Front desk service was helpful, buffet breakfast was well-stocked. I didn't use the pool or exercise room, but they looked well maintained.

    Wonderful hotel in great location


    On a recent visit to Austin to see family I had the fortunate pleasure of staying at this hidden gem of a hotel! The staff was courteous and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the location is great. Walking distance to everything-restaurants, live music, musuems and the Capitol. Highly recommend this hotel!

    Nice Hotel


    The Hampton Inn in downtown Austin was very simple and very comfortable. The staff is friendly, efficient and very welcoming. Our room was comfortable and clean and we were pleasantly surprised to see a fridge in the room when we arrived. The fitness room and pool are not large, but the equipment was up to date and the pool was relaxing. Each morning they offer a continental breakfast with more choices than I knew what to do with...Everything from fresh baked waffles and muffins to fruit and cereal. I would definitely stay here again!

    Nice Place


    I found it kind of interesting that there was a Hampton in the downtown of a metroplex. However, it was a nice place with good service. There are many elegant and high-priced hotels in the area so this is a good place to go if your looking for location at the right price with limited services. Seems to be a fairly new property. Standard rooms, very few frills. If on a budget, I would stay here again! A very nice high-rise hotel in downtown Austin... The Live Music Capital of the World!
