Silver Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin

701 Congress Avenue
Austin, TX 78701
(512) 457-8800websitePrice: Expensive
Area: Downtown

This hotel, along with its nearby rival the Driskill, is located in the heart of Austin and offers a very similar lodging and workout experience. Guests can look forward to historic accommodations. Intercontinental goes for a 1920's look and feel while Driskill marches further back in time, offering rooms with late 19th Century Victorian features.

On the workout front, the "Stephen F." as locals call it, boasts a larger exercise room and more equipment than the Driskill.  If your exercise regimen demands a wider variety of equipment, or you simply desire a true health club experience, walk 3 minutes to Gold's Gym,  an improved version. The weight machines are in better shape than the cardio.

Swimmers can get a little water action at the Intercontinental's 14-yard, bottom-striped square. However, bring the abacus to track the shortened laps. For better swim options, see the community and health club alternatives in the "Work Out" section.

Joggers should consider our recommended outdoor Lady Bird Lake route.
