Location Rating : 9.5/10


The Stephen F Austin Royal Sonesta Hotel is an upmarket 4 star hotel located on Congress Ave next to the famous Paramount Theatre. The hotel was originally built in 1924 and is one of the cities oldest high rise buildings. It’s a great place to stay a short walk from 6th Street or from the Capitol Building.

Offering a welling equipped fitness center and an indoor pool guests here have no excuse for missing a workout. There’s two restaurants, Roaring Fork which serves old west inspired food cooked over a wood fire. And Stephen F’s Bar which offers drinks & dining either indoors or outside on a magnificent terrace overlooking Congress Ave.

Rooms at the Stephen F Austin Royal Sonesta start with the deluxe room, which is not huge at 250 sq ft, or a preferred room, which is a much more generous 450 sq ft. They also offer some seriously luxurious suites, the largest of which (The Governor’s Suite) is a massive 1600 sq ft. The hotel is luxurious but the decor is old fashioned, it’s like a very wealthy old person’s house. This is clearly a deliberate style choice and older guests will likely love it.

This is a great hotel for business travelers, but it’s also ok for older couples.
