Fodor's Review

Locally known as the “Stephen F.,” this 1924 hotel underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2013, which modernized guestrooms, while retaining the landmark’s historic charms. The location still can’t be beat: smack in the middle of Congress Avenue, next door to the Paramount Theater, one block from Sixth Street and four blocks from the Capitol. Rooms, underscored by rich reds and hardwoods, feature understated Texas homages, like Lone Star emblems and cow skin throw pillows—all in all a bit bland apart from the stately bathrooms with marble vanities. Unwind at the hotel bar’s popular terrace, overlooking Congress Avenue and the Capitol. Roaring Fork, the in-house restaurant, specializes in wood-fired steaks and upscale American fare.
