Facility Description: Experience the best of the city when you stay at our luxury hotel in Austin, TX. Located on Congress Avenue, right in the heart of the action, our iconic hotel has been a staple of the Austin skyline for almost a century. Enjoy elegant accommodations, full-service amenities, a range of incredible on-site dining options, and stunning meeting & event space during your next visit to Austin when you book a stay at the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin. 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 and the property sat vacant for 13 years, InterContinental Hotels purchased the property in the 1990’s with a mission to restore it to its former glory and two years later guests were able to enjoy the balance of historic ambience with modern amenities & services.
