Kick off your Austin hotel stay by sampling the city’s famous live music scene. More than 200 concert venues dot the popular Red River, Warehouse and Sixth Street districts.

But it’s not all about city life. Austin is also known as the gateway to the Texas Hill Country, boasting lush green hills, tranquil lakes and plenty of outdoor attractions. Spend some time at Barton Springs Pool, a natural limestone pool that’s great for swimming, fishing, and more or take a guided kayaking trip along the Guadalupe, San Marcos or Colorado rivers. If you’re visiting our Austin hotels in the summertime, be sure stop by the Congress Avenue Bridge at dusk to witness thousands of bats gather. It’s a site to behold!
