    Experience an iconic stay at this historic hotel steps from cultural landmarks, premier dining and nightlife on Congress Avenue. The Stephen F. Austin Royal Sonesta Hotel, named after the “father of Texas,” was originally built in 1924 as Austin’s first high-rise hotel on Congress Avenue. Settle into our beautifully appointed rooms and suites, and let our Texas hospitality wash over you. For food and beverage aficionados, Stephen F’s Bar & Terrace on Congress Avenue is a must with a beautiful view of the State Capitol. The Roaring Fork restaurant, the first of two in Austin, is located on the lower level of the hotel. Our 6,000 square feet of meeting and event space are all located on one level, adding convenience to your gathering of up to 400 guests. And it’s all centrally located in the heart of Austin's central business district within walking distance of the State Capitol, the University of Texas at Austin, and near famed attractions like Sixth Street and Rainey Street just to name a few.
