The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin's historic charm attracts travelers looking for luxe accommodations amid the bustling, downtown scene. This historic 1924 property recently underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation, while preserving the marble floors and grand staircase that make the lobby a true show-stopper. 

The hotel's interior features dark woods, over-sized furniture and Southwestern flair that pays homage to its Texas roots. Stephen F.'s Bar & Terrace boasts the only outdoor terrace on Congress Avenue with stunning views of the Capitol and downtown cityscape. Through the main lobby, Zagat-praised Roaring Fork offers wood-fired American fare and daily happy hours. 

Centrally located in downtown Austin, a five-minute walk will take you to Town Lake, the Capitol building or the Second Street shopping district. Just a block away, the live music and boisterous nightlife of Sixth Street await. During the day, stop by the concierge desk to arrange a golf or tennis outing at one of Austin's premiere facilities.
