Cheap Downtown Austin Hotel and Suites at the InterContinental

Inexpensive Downtown Location

Things to Do on a Discount in Austin

The hotel is home to the popular Stephen F’s Bar and Terrace, which includes terrace seating with great views of the city. Guests can enjoy a dip in the hotel’s indoor swimming pool, exercise in the large fitness center with Cybex equipment, or relax at the on-site health club. Coffee and bottled water are also available for those staying at the hotel.

Visitors can tour the great Austin area, but they do not want to miss a tour of the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, a stroll through the hiking trails of Lady Bird Lake, or a shopping experience at the nearby Barton Creek Mall.

All guest rooms include free wireless Internet access and premium channel cable TV, along with a coffee maker, and minibar. Special suites are also available that offer great city views and larger spaces for relaxation.

The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin hotel offers similar accommodations to the Hilton Austin. However, this hotel provides guests with access to a large premium on-site health club.
