This airport hotel is referred to as the “donut” because of its distinctive round shape, and it’s just two minutes from the terminal, the only hotel right on Austin Bergstrom International Airport grounds. Take the complimentary 24-hour shuttle for access to downtown Austin (less than 15 minutes away), as well as the airport. You’re less than 15 minutes from downtown Austin and all of the city’s museums and restaurants. If you arrive very late or have to leave very early, this location is a great bet.
Hopefully you’ll have time for the indoor/outdoor swimming pool and whirlpool and free Wi-Fi, the farm-to-market restaurant and Creeks Coffee Shop with specialty coffees. Guestrooms are available with two double beds, and suites include a separate living area.
There’s also a Starbucks onsite. Check out the special Family Fun package and AAA/CAA Family Fun Offer.

We stayed one night of our 3 night stay. The first room reeked of cigarette smoke, was dated, worn, and had stains all over the carpet. We requested a different room, and were immediately accommodated. Our second room, though not smoky; was equally as shabby, run-down and worn. The toilet ran all night, carpet was equally as gross, and we layed towels over the chair in the room, prior to setting anything on it.
Would not stay here again. We are surprised that Hilton has it's name on the hotel.
This all being said, the front desk clerks, Noah and Richard, were delightful!
We always stay here for following day flights as we live outside of Austin. Great bar, food and service and airport shuttles. Easy Uber to surrounding restaurants, shopping if needed. Interesting history of the hotel as well as it was repurposed from an Air Force use as administration office complex.
