Verified Reviews of Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Luxurious Suite and Amazing Staff During Our Wedding Weekend."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We had a room block at the Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin for our April wedding weekend. From the get go, I was assigned a personable and professional contact to set up our room block and contract. When she moved onto a different company, our room block was then transferred to Danelle and Madison, who rocked! Both Danelle and Madison were extremely responsive to our emails. They sent me timely room block reports and helped me rearrange room assignments and reservations as necessary. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the friendly and helpful front desk concierge. The bellhops were attentive and quick with our requests, polite and courteous. My fiancé at the time and I were so surprised to walk into such a beautiful suite. Every detail was luxurious. Our favorite was the huge free standing bath tub with doors that opened up to a window view of the city. The lights had dimmers, there was ample closet and storage space, a his and hers sink area, vanity, sitting area, full length dressing mirror, the most comfortable bed and the list goes on! I don't think I will be able to stay in a normal hotel room again! The staff also made sure that our wedding guests received their welcome guest bags within just a few hours of check-in. For a small fee, the bags were delivered to their rooms. Oh and not to mention the 2nd floor terrace with a great view of Congress Ave and the Capitol Building. Easy access to Roaring Fork (with a great happy hour), a very clean and fully equipped 24 hour gym and convenient location one block away from all the restaurants and bars on 6th street all make Stephen F. Austin our number one favorite hotel in Austin! Thank you for making our wedding weekend true bliss!

"Rooms Were Amazing, but Issues With Food"
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.
