The gleaming, 37-story tower boasts 1,048 rooms, 140,000 sq feet of event space, five restaurants and bars, a gorgeous spa, and a prime party pool (the largest in downtown Austin).
A towering icon within a vibrant Central Business District, the Fairmont Austin is uniquely located in downtown Austin; amid the greenery of Palm Park and Waller Creek. The 37-story luxury hotel features 1,048 richly appointed guest rooms and suites; with picturesque vistas of Lady Bird Lake, a dramatic cityscape and the State Capitol.
Unlike most business-savvy hotels, the Fairmont Austin manifests the city’s lust for life by showcasing live music, vivid contemporary art and a fantastic food and beverage program. The entryway dazzles with a kaleidoscope of greens and blues that play on Austin’s love of nature; bringing the outside in. Plush blue and dark wood seating in the Fulton lobby lounge encourages you to “meet under the old oak tree” — an actual replica of the oldest oak tree in Texas — for expertly crafted cocktails and bar snacks to the tune of live music.
The hotel boasts nearly 140,000 sq feet of event space; fully equipped for any occasion events. One notable highlight is Palm Park, which accommodates up to 750 guests, has a performance platform for live events and opens out onto the pool-facing Palm Court terrace, which can hold another 500 and includes 85-inch weatherproof televisions with live-streaming capabilities.
