The Hampton Inn & Suites Austin @ The University/Capitol also known as 'The Lavaca' is located at 1701 Lavaca Street Austin, Texas. This hotel is operated under the Hilton® franchise, managed by Vista Host. Vista Host manages 8 hotels in Austin and CEO, Michael V. Harrell is a long time resident of the city.
Since we originally built the hotel we wanted the guests to feel our passion for Keeping Austin Weird. This is important to us as it brings our guests to take part in a conversation with the associates. When strangers meet they do not know what to talk about & this helps our guests become engaged with our associates. We want the guests to feel comfortable with us, have a discussion with the staff, be a part of Keeping Austin Weird, and choosing to be with us instead of someplace else. The hotel features artists and their artwork from Austin.
