You’ll find Holiday Inn® Austin hotels in fantastic locations, from the shores of Lady Bird Lake downtown to convenient situations near the airport and the University of Texas.
Austin is well known for its friendly atmosphere and its pleasant open spaces and parks. You’ll get an especially warm welcome at your Holiday Inn; the friendly staff, efficient service, and comfortable rooms will make your stay a real pleasure for the whole family.
Like your Austin hotel, the city itself is genuinely family friendly. There’s plenty here for children. The Austin Children’s Museum, Austin Zoo and the Zilker Zephyr miniature train are favourites with kids.
For shopping, there’s downtown Austin, and if you like arty boutiques, galleries and antique stores, try South Congress. There’s a street festival there every week.
You won’t have to stray far from your Austin hotel to find great places to eat. For local flavour, try the authentic steak and hot sauce at Threadgill’s, the fried catfish at Shady Grove, or the barbecue at the Backyard. Or simply enjoy a relaxing meal in your hotel.
As nightfall approaches, head for the Congress Avenue Bridge, where a million bats take flight every evening – it’s a spectacular sight. More conventional nightlife includes everything from line dancing at the Broken Spoke, blues at Antone’s, and classical concerts and theatre. Just ask the staff in any of our Austin hotels for pointers; they’ll be happy to help you discover this exciting southern city.
