Verified Reviews of Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Rooms were amazing, food had issues"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I'll start off with the good: The hotel was absolutely beautiful from the inside out. The Bellman, valet and front desk staff were amazingly nice and welcoming. The rooms were a very pleasant surprise with the great decor, very clean and some nice Texas touches. I am not an eloquent or illustrative writer, but I could not have asked for a better atmosphere. The bad: Room Service. The first batch of food that came was perfect, but we ordered a second batch of food as "gluten free"; apparently the chef did not hear the words gluten free and came up with 4 dishes that the bride & groom could not eat. He was trying to be nice, but it was clear he was frustrated when we asked him about it and I don't think he understands what gluten actually is; he said "well when you order pasta, it obviously has gluten", but there are rice pastas that many restaurants accommodate with. So he asked "what can I make?" and we ordered 4 breakfast tacos on corn and an omelet. Honestly, it was the worst food I've ever had in my entire life, the bride spit out the tacos and I ate them because I felt bad that her dad was going to have to pay for them. We ended up ordering Roppolos gluten free pizza and tipping him $25 to deliver to us at 1am. Oh well, you can't have everything perfect; it was just miscommunication, and we didn't let it ruin anybody's night. I would definitely stay at the Stephen F. Austin again and will likely book it a year from now for our anniversary. I just won't ask for gluten free food again; but not every restaurant accommodates us, so no big deal.
