InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel Review

This historic 1924 hotel reopened after a 12-year vacancy in 2000 following a top-to-bottom renovation, including restoration of many original architectural features. The location is ideal: one block from 6th Street, four blocks from the Capitol, and next door to the historic Paramount Theater. Rooms are dressed in dark woods, and the decor is sparked with understated nods to Texas, like the Lone Star emblem on the headboards—all in all they are a bit bland apart from the opulent bathrooms with marble vanities. At the end of the day, relax at the terrace bar, whose balcony overlooks Congress Avenue and the Capitol, or at Roaring Fork, a critically praised Western bistro and saloon.
