About Austin

Texan capital Austin is known for being laid-back and creative - and possibly even a little bit ‘hippy’, in the friendly, colourful, artistic kind of way - plus it also has the reputation for being the ‘Live Music Capital of the World’. But Austin isn’t all music and ‘Keep Austin Weird’ bumper stickers. Austin has a rich history - it was founded in 1839, along with the Republic of Texas - and occupies a beautiful position, centre state, with abundant natural resources. If you’re coming for one of the big music festivals then you’ll need to book a long way in advance if you want to put up in one of the best places to stay in Austin. But there’s plenty of live music going on here every night of the year.

Our Guru’s list recommends properties across town, but if you’re here for the music then the best places to stay can be found in the Downtown area. This is also where you’ll find the coral pink granite State Capitol building, a key local landmark, and many of Austin’s varied museums and galleries.

What Not To Miss

  • The Texas State Capitol, constructed in its unusual red granite, was completed in the late 19th century. It is surrounded by 22 acres of grounds which are home to a collection of statues and monuments.
  • The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum features everything: ranging from a re-imagining of Texas during Native Indian times, to exhibits about the Wild West in Hollywood and country music.
  • Or try The Thinkery, a museum designed to inspire young minds with its hands-on exhibits unpicking ideas within the fields of science, technology and the arts.
  • Downtown Austin is where you’ll find several excellent art museums. And of course many restaurants, bars and music venues.
  • Barton Springs is a famed local natural swimming pool in Zilker Park, a vast haven of shady green, run through with biking and hiking trails.
  • Zilker Park is also where you’ll find the Zilker Botanical Gardens, spreading for 30 lush acres beside the Colorado River and is a lovely, cool place to stroll.
  • If you’re interested in the local flora then head out to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Centre.

Where To Stay - Which Neighbourhood?

  • Downtown Austin features a plethora of bars, clubs, and live music venues - boasting a wonderfully buzzy-yet-laidback atmosphere.
  • East Downtown is a hipster, slightly grittier version of its more central counterpart. The district oozes character: with murals a-plenty and worn-down, slightly weathered bars.
  • South Congress is located directly to the south of Downtown and is where the locals go to party. It's awash with independent and vintage shops, plus there's a wide range of cafes and some of the city's best restaurants.
  • Travis Heights, aka South River City, is full of leafy green spaces interspersed with hip cafes and colourful bungalows. It's the ideal spot if you fancy a more relaxed vibe during your stay.
  • Judge's Hill is primarily residential, so if you're looking to return from busy days sightseeing to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet then it's the place for you.

Our Guru's pick of the best places to stay in Austin range from budget boutique to luxurious guest house - something for every taste and budget.

For Downtown Austin

  • Right in the heart of things, The Driskill is a wonderful old world charmer which has just recently undergone a significant renovation. The public spaces are grand - think glass domes, magnificent staircases and a legendary bar - and the rooms are generously sized, modern and comfortable.
  • The Line is a trendy modern option in a wonderful riverside location. Interiors are sleek and fresh, plus there's four restaurants to choose from, and a wonderful infinity pool with views over Town Lake.
  • Hotel Ella is an elegant boutique property right by the University of Texas in the centre of town. The facade welcomes with grand columns and a huge porch and the contemporary rooms have marble bathrooms and private balconies. Plus, there’s an innovative restaurant and bar.

For East Austin

  • The Heywood Hotel has just seven rooms - they’re modern, light, and decorated with classic Texan art. There are free bikes, complimentary coffee and you’re within walking distance of restaurants and music venues.

For South Congress/Travis Heights

  • Kimber Modern is a seriously chic option in the centre of town. Come here for stylish modern accommodation in the heart of the action.
  • South Congress Hotel is a hip hotel in the happening SoCo neighbourhood. Beautifully designed throughout, rooms have an industrial feel with high-ceilings, tiled walls, polished concrete and floor to ceiling windows. The bathrooms are uber-luxe and feature Aesop products.

  • The Hotel San Jose is a 1930s motel turned minimalist, modern boutique hotel with 40 rooms set around a courtyard and pool. There isn’t a restaurant but you’re just across the bridge from Downtown Austin, there’s a breakfast room which is light and comfortable. Rooms start from around £130 per night.

Just out of town

  • Lone Star Court is situated in the outskirts of Austin. It features colourful, retro and quirky rooms whilst also boasting an outdoor pool. Be sure to enjoy a meal at the on-site restaurant serving up local dishes, or try something from their own food truck! A fun and low-key option for a city stay.
  • The Travaasa Austin is perfect for those who want proximity to the city centre but a country location. Here you'll find spectacular views, spacious accommodation and a raft of activities from cookery classes to mountain biking.

  • Austin Amtrak Station connects Austin to major cities such as Chicago and San Antonio.
  • If you want to rent a car to explore Texas, visit our online partner Rentalcars.
