Known as the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin is an eclectic community filled with both aspiring and world-renowned musicians, a thriving arts scene, fascinating cultural opportunities, and beautiful natural landscapes just begging to be discovered. Choose any one of our Holiday Inn Express® Austin hotels as a launching point to see and do it all!
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. Sink your teeth into some of the best Tex-Mex and barbecue in the Lone Star State or step back in time at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. Looking to pick up a souvenir or two? Forgo the tourist kitsch and hit up Austin's unique shops and galleries, which are full of one-of-a-kind treasures.
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!

I always enjoy staying here because of the friendly staff and clean hotel. The property is in need of some renovations, mainly the hot tub/pool area and fitness area[Less]
