EXCELLENT (4.5 out of 5)

Exceptional - 5.0 out of 5

Terri S, Kerrville TX Mon, 3 December 2012

I adored staying at the Stephen F Austin hotel. The staff was super friendly and accommodating, the room was beautiful and comfortable, and it was next door to the theater where I went to a concert (Stateside at the Paramount). A super deal all the way around.

Liked: Wonderful hotel.

Great location, super comfy beds

Liked: Amazing location. Typically we stay at the Driskill, but after a terrible experience there last time, we decided to try the Intercontinental. The location is just as great, located directly behind the other hotel and a block from 6th street. Even though you are in the heart of everything, the hotel is quiet and peaceful with restaurants and bars on site. Normally I don't sleep so well in hotels, but the bed was so comfortable I slept better than at home!
Disliked: There was some sort of construction going on in the lobby which was pretty loud. People could just walk in off the street, and there were a lot of pretty sketchy characters out on the street, but at least you needed a security card to get to guest room floors. Parking was also pretty pricey. Site said $42 a night, but we were charged over $45 per night.

We had a wonderful, relaxing...

Liked: Beautiful and convenient location. There were plenty of things to do and see within walking distance. Enjoyed live music fun dining and a little shopping. The walks by the river were also delightful. The staff were very helpful.
Disliked: My room itself was very comfortable and quiet, but the building's air conditioning units were directly in front of and 5 feet from my window, so there was no view at all. Also, as the window opened, it provided access from (and to) my room from the flat roof / work area around the units. This could make some guests uncomfortable.

Liked: Nice bed
Disliked: There is no self parking. They wanted $45 to valet. Parking still cost me $30 around the corner. This is why I hate staying in cities , you get a great deal on the hotel then they kill you on the parking.
