Historic Hotel

Historic Hotel

Established in 1924 as one of the first high-rise luxury hotels in Austin, the Stephen F. Austin was a symbol of elegance in the area that was starting to develop into the business-rich and culturally significant city we know it as today. A stunning marble double staircase adorned the lobby, with intricate gold décor and plush furnishings creating a warm and classy ambience for all guests to enjoy. A notable spot for celebrities and public figures alike, Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush all used the Stephen F. Austin as campaign headquarters during their respective political campaigns.

After ownership changes caused the hotel to stray away from its historic past, InterContinental Hotels purchased the property in the 1990s with a mission to restore it to its former glory. Today, guests can enjoy the balance of historic ambience with modern amenities & services.
