When deciding where to stay in Austin, you’ll need to understand one important fact—every neighborhood of the city presents something special that helps to “Keep Austin Weird.” Here are some of the more popular places in the city and one or two great Austin hotels for each:
For a front row seat on the weirdness that defines Austin, we recommend a stay at a hotel in the South Congress (SoCo) section of South Austin. The city’s true character is on display in this eclectic neighborhood (to say the least) in the form of vintage art galleries, trendy boutiques, and open-air music venues. Let your freak flag fly all day and all night.
Like any typical capital city central district, downtown Austin is home to a fast-paced business and government hub. The beehive of commerce turns into a swarm of revelers come sundown, as the offices close down and the bars and entertainment venues along Sixth Street open up.
Nestled along the Lady Bird Lake section of the Colorado River between downtown and South Congress, the Rainey Street Historical District is a perfect mix of the two. Craftsman homes in the shadows of the Austin Convention Center have been converted into bars, with yards that now serve as beer gardens. Grab a bike from a fusion food truck on your way to your industry event on the convention floor.
One of the premier locales for Austin lodging has to be the laidback neighborhood of Bouldin. Located just west of South Congress and across the Colorado from downtown, Bouldin is central to all. You can be at the convention center, University of Texas, or capital building in a matter of minutes. And—perhaps more importantly—the bars and restaurants on Rainey and Sixth Street are a short cab ride away.
When you use Travelocity to book your stay in the Live Music Capital of the World, you’ll be able to choose from a huge selection of accommodations, ranging from cheap hotels in Austin’s top neighborhoods to upscale resorts throughout the area. Plus, with the money you save thanks to Travelocity’s Austin hotel deals, you can buy a round of local craft beers for the young whippersnappers around you and show them that a wise wanderer like yourself can appreciate the finer things in life without having to be ironic about it.
