Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.

  • Great price, great service, and a great location. Can park at the nearby Mexican Cultural Center for just $1 an hour, and it's near downtown so you can take a walk into town for some dinner afterwards. A lovely day spent!
  • Great availability of rentals, horrible location relative to parking (good luck); this place does not allow you have your 6yr old or 3yr old child to ride with you on a stand up paddle board others do. They rented to us and then were turned away at the docks. Luckily we were able to get two double kayaks instead relatively quickly, they made up the difference. They reimbursed us 100% for rentals (when we got back, pleasant surprise) because of their mistake so theyre ya go otherwise we had a good time.
  • Excellent prices! Friendly staff! What more can you ask for? The views while kayaking will make everything worthwhile. In the middle of everything yet peaceful when you're out on the water.
  • Most fun ever! Victoria and the South African guy were so funny and friendly! For $15 the first hour and just $5 for each hour after that, you really can't go wrong
  • Loved kayaking... Taking single seat 1 hour package was a perfect decision. It was like 15$. Really worth it.
