We travel extensively and the staff at the Thompson is top notch. Extremely friendly, helpful and professional- they really made our stay! And, my wife and I had a late night snack from the Greymarket which was awesome! I highly recommend The Thompson when in Austin. Also, the best hotel fitness club! Great location!

Amazing property in the heart of Austin. Fantastic food and beverage program as well. 10/10 would recommend. Everything from the in room bars to all the food we had around the hotel at different outlets was phenomenal. Right next to 6th street but you'd never know with how quiet the property is. Looking forward to when we can return and stay… Read more

I stayed at the Thompson Austin for the first time last week & had a great experience. Everyone was super friendly, including valet, desk & house keeping staffs, Rooms was beautifully decorated, very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The valet even helped me repack my car as I was bringing some small furniture pieces back to Dallas. I realized a couple of days after I got home that I had left something at the hotel. I called the front desk and they confirmed that I had left the item and that they had taken it to their security office. They offered to mail it to me and when I asked them if they still had my credit card number on file to charge me for the postage they told me that would not be necessary, that they would absorb the cost for the postage. It is so rare these days for someone to not charge you for something, and in this case it was completely my fault. What service! The woman I was speaking to asked if the email that they had on file from my reservation was the email that I wanted them to use to send me the tracking number to for the package. I was even more wowed when she asked that, and sure enough within 10 minutes I received the tracking number and 2 days later I received my item back, along with a lovely note thanking me again for choosing to stay at Thompson Austin. Thank You, Thompson Austin for your hospitality during my stay, as well as your graciousness and being so helpful even after I had returned home. I will definitely stay at Thompson Austin on all of my future trips to Austin! Read less

Delivers as advertised, a luxury boutique hotel in downtown Austin. Stellar build out and interior design. The good: Service was consistently good throughout. Rooms not too cramped, bathrooms are spacious, beds are comfy. It would be nice to have a full size couch in the room (big surprise, I know). Pool is very well done - umbrellas in the key spots (we get plenty of sun down here), 3 ft deep wading pool since no one actually swims in these pools, lots of lounge options. FYI: Cabanas are for renting with a $200 minimum food & drink (this town is getting closer to Vegas all the time). Food at the Grey Market was worth coming back for, even without a room (that is saying something). Lots of dining options here (again, this is like Vegas). Gym is spacious and well done. Location is great for walking around downtown. Royal Blue Grocery is two blocks away for any of your sundry needs. Lots of restaurants. The bad: This is near the party scene of 6th street so be prepared for some noise outside your window. Get a room as high as you can get. The amorphous blurry fuzzy music at the pool is not only annoying but way too loud. Really kills the vibe. What is up with the trend of not even putting a sheet on a bed? The single duvet was WAY too hot. Numerous attempts to stream Netflix via the Chromecast app failed. Called the front desk - they said they would send someone up. No one showed. The pet peeves: The lighting is overly complex and the bathroom is pitch dark, no way to see a light switch (if you visit turn the dimmer all the way down and a night light with a sensor will come on). No luggage rack? Why? And very few hooks in bathroom for towels. Nepresso coffee in room is not good at all (we have one at home), but surprisingly, the coffee bar is not much better. There is a Starbucks two blocks from here. This kind of hotel simply did not exist in Austin until recently. For better or worse, here we go into the future. Read less
