Hotels in Austin
Hotels in Austin offer everything- from luxury comfort right in downtown to rugged adventures and relaxing retreats just outside of the city. The Four Seasons Hotel is one of the best hotels in Austin. It’s four-star accommodations are located in the center of the city, walking distance from the Texas State Capitol with balconies with views of Lady Bird Lake. Noted as “Texas’s most active destination resort and spa,” Travaasa Austin offers one of a kind adventures and accommodation in Texas Hill Country. Guests can relax on a private terrace or visit the spa, or step out for horseback riding and zip lining.
Lone Star Court is vintage inspired with retro touches. The new hotel offers an upscale version of an old-school motel. Rooms look out onto a central courtyard with a lagoon-style pool, and the hotel even sports its own on-site food truck doling out breakfast tacos, tostadas, and “Texas Chili Frito pie” all day long. Hotel Ella’s luxury style guest suites are its calling card. It’s one of Austin’s landmarked estates, renovated to be the perfect accommodation in ‘small luxury” size. Its grand exterior makes it the perfect spot for a picturesque getaway.
