Located in the heart of downtown, Fairmont Austin is the perfect choice in booking your summer staycation. Throughout the summer, the hotel is offering its “You Deserve Some Credit” package that gives guests a $50 credit for every night booked. These credits may be used toward any of the five dining options, retail spaces or spa experiences throughout the hotel. Fairmont Austin’s downtown location is perfect for those who want to experience all things Austin. Within walking distance to Historic Rainey District, up-and-coming 2nd District, Seaholm District, and the famous 6th Street, Fairmont Austin is at the core. Being outdoors is a large part of Austin’s lifestyle, and the Roy and Ann Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail is just a quick five-minute walk from the hotel.
Here’s why Austin is the city for your next staycation:
Hot Luck Festival
A combination of the best that Austin has to offer: food and music! Chefs and musicians from around the country will come together for one weekend to showcase each of their talents from May 23 to 26. This festival is one giant picnic with live music, delicious bites and many strangers that come together to delight in the better things in life.
This Memorial Day weekend, Austin will be the center of hustle and bustle with many exciting activities throughout the city. From Hot Luck Fest to UT Austin graduation weekend, the city will be abuzz this holiday weekend. What better place to be in the middle of it all than a stay at Fairmont Austin? Treat the graduate in your life with a two-night stay to congratulate them on such an incredible accomplishment.
Fourth of July
Booking a stay with Fairmont Austin for your Fourth of July festivities will be the best decision you make all year! Hang by the pool and witness the best view in the city of the fireworks that pop right over Lady Bird Lake. There’s nothing quite like this fireworks spectacular!
Blues on the Green
Throughout the summer, Zilker Park is the venue for the monthly Blues on the Green live music event. Talented blues musicians showcase their smooth sounds on a stage that has a backdrop of downtown Austin. On top of that, it’s free! Family and pet friendly, this is definitely the spot to spend a relaxing Thursday afternoon with the ones you love, while listening to some of the best blues bands in Texas.
Activities around Austin
Aside from the downtown hike-and-bike trail, Austin has many outdoor spaces to enjoy family, friends and water. Barton Springs Pool is only two miles from Fairmont Austin, and you can indulge in the cold, fresh water on a hot summer’s day. With many different paths to explore along Barton Creek, the Greenbelt is the stop to make for those who are looking for a challenging hike, or those who want to experience nature without losing their breath.
At the end of each of these fun-filled days in the sun, Fairmont Austin will be there to greet guests with delicious food and drinks. Busy days call for relaxing evenings, so sit back and unwind with dinner at Garrison, Revue or Rules & Regs, where the family can begin planning tomorrow’s activities.
