The Fairmont Austin

Austin, Texas

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.

Valet service was great. Lobby is beautiful! Sit down restaurant is lovely and the coffee bar inside the gift shop is awesome. Everything exudes luxury until you get into the room. Single ply Kleenex, scratchy toilet paper, and plastic toilet seats. No bathtub unless you pay the upgrade. And, even though I booked a package with a $50 dining… Read more

I would just like to take a moment to say thank you so much for such an amazing experience! Everything from the warm welcome upon arrival, relaxing massage, wonderful amenities, and exceptional customer service provided by Ben to go above and beyond to personally hand deliver a shower mist that I wanted to purchase while there but was unable to because my service ended during closing hours. AMAZING!! TON of restaurants within walking distance or you can rent an electric scooter. Again, thank you for the phenomenal experience and I look forward to visiting again soon! Read less

Spectacular hotel located in the heart of downtown Austin so easily walk/Uber/bike to anywhere fun or touristy. We had a great great room, cool bar with live music and tree in the heart of it all, relaxing and warm pools, jacuzzi, spa and fitness room. Wonderful customer service and very clean!
