The Fairmont Austin

Austin, Texas

Virgin rating

The hotel

If you’re wandering through the central business district, you won’t be able to miss the Fairmont Austin, it’s 37-storey building being a towering icon set amid lush green surroundings. This makes for fantastic views from all room types, particularly with the floor-to-ceiling windows, overlooking the dramatic cityscape and the Lady Bird Lake. The 7th floor terrace plays host to the spacious pool with cabanas and poolside bar and restaurant, all with a city centre backdrop. All the best that Austin has to offer is within walking distance, with the popular Rainey Street just two blocks away for a host of bars and restaurants. You don’t need to leave the hotel to experience quality food though, with 5 dining options available to you, all offering something a bit different.

I have been having breakfast at the Revue restaurant in the hotel. Kelly gave a outstanding service. Nothing was to much to ask. And everything with a smile. Thank you Kelly! The choice on the buffet was not only very wide, the quality of the food was also outstanding.

I have stayed at many Fairmonts and the service I received from Reuben S. was exceptional. He noticed that I was waiting for a delivery that drove by and never dropped off my meal. Reuben quickly went to room service and expedited an order for me and gave me a credit. I am so appreciative for his help and quick to action thinking!

Kudos to my server, Biggy, at Fulton. He's the game changer! His recommendation of the spicy passion fruit margarita was truly refreshing, adding a delightful twist to my dining experience. Biggy's attentive service and spot-on suggestions made my evening memorable. Can't wait to return for another unique cocktail
