  • Initially debuting in 1924, the Stephen F. Austin Hotel hosted the social scene for legislators, businessmen and educators for more than 60 years. The hotel eventually closed in 1987 amid financial turmoil. After sitting vacant for 10 years, the asset was acquired in 1997 and initiated a $30 million renovation to recreate its historic charm. In 2000, the hotel was re-opened as the four-star Stephen F. Austin InterContinental and was subsequently sold to InterContinental Hotels. Recognizing the positive change this development created, the Downtown Austin Alliance awarded T. Stacy & Associates the 2000 "Project IMPACT" Award for the Best Renovation/Rehabilitation in the Downtown Area.
