Austin Hotels and Accommodation
(Austin, Texas - TX, USA)
There is a vast selection of hotels to be found all around Austin, ranging from cheap chain motels to luxury accommodation in the heart of the business and entertainment districts. Chain hotels line much of the interstate, including a popular Best Western. Of note, many visitors state that the motels found along the South Congress Avenue are not worth considering.
There are also a number of hotels close to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS)
, which is only 8 miles / 13 km south of the city. Accommodation near to Austin's airport includes the Fairfield Inn, La Quinta Inn, the Amerisuites and the renowned Hilton Hotel, which is actually no more than a two-minute stroll from the passenger terminal.
Where to Stay
Budget accommodation is usually fairly easy to come by in Austin, particularly when booking well ahead. Look along stretches such as the North Interstate 35, the Waterford Centre Boulevard and the West Ben White Boulevard. Standing on Governors Row, the Hampton Inn is a reliable choice and lies within the Southpark Business Park, while on the South 1st Street, the Homestead Hotel is especially cheap and has recently been completely refurbished.
If you like to choose well-known, familiar accommodation brands, then Austin will certainly not disappoint on that level. Popular hotel brands include the Courtyard by Marriott and the Holiday Inn Town Lake, both of which reside on the North Interstate Highway 35. Also of note is the Candlewood Suites Northwest on Stonelake Boulevard, the Econo Lodge on Burnet Road, the Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham on La Posada Drive, and the Courtyard by Marriott on East 4th Street, which stands alongside the Austin Convention Center.
For luxury accommodation in Austin, consider staying at the Intercontinental on Congress Avenue, which is close to the State Capitol building, and the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Barton Springs Road, which stands on the shoreline of Lady Bird Lake and therefore boasts impressive waterfront views.
