Travelling for work is inevitable these days, especially in the meetings and events industry. Why not expand upon these professional commitments and turn a corporate getaway into a leisure vacation? With Fairmont Austin’s downtown location, there is plenty to do both on and offsite to treat yourself to a little bleisure weekend.
At Fairmont Austin Spa, well-being is found in balanced living. The spa is made up of nine treatment rooms and separate men’s and women's solariums that feature saline soaking pools, eucalyptus steam grottos, European dry heat saunas and floor-to-ceiling windows boasting views of Palm Park and the downtown Austin skyline. Sit for a spell and rejuvenate your body and mind while being surrounded by the spirited energy of downtown Austin.
Located on the hotel’s seventh floor is Fairmont Austin’s roof deck pool. With 13 exclusive cabanas and one grand cabana available for rent, guests can enjoy sweeping views of downtown Austin while lounging in the heated water. The pool is open from 6 a.m. – 10 p.m. with poolside food and beverage services available daily. Take a day to relax by the pool and cool off during those warm summer days – you’ll have access to everything you need without ever leaving your chaise lounge chair.
With five bars and restaurants onsite, Fairmont Austin aligns itself with the top dining destinations in Austin. Garrison, Revue, Good Things and Fulton are located on the hotel’s ground level while an indoor/outdoor bar space, Rules & Regs, is located on the seventh floor, where guest can enjoy sweeping views of vibrant downtown.
For the highest quality meats, seafood and local produce, enjoy a meal at Garrison, a Modern American Grill House. A dedication to open flame, wafting smoke and impressive wine pairings redefine dining in the heart of Austin. Travel through four distinct culinary worlds at Revue where the cuisine is defined by its diversity, and includes the timeless cuisine of Italy, the epicurean complexities of Asia, the delicacies of the Sea, and treats from the artisanal Pastry shop.
Good Things allows you and your group to start your day off on the right foot with coffee, tea, delicious snacks, food to go and a variety of other beverages. Fulton allows you and your group to end the day with a signature beverage in a space that pays homage to the musically charged streets of Austin. Fulton is a place to sip and swirl local wine, beer and spirits while enjoying relaxed dining with plates to share.
Really indulge with a bottomless brunch at Revue, live music every night in Fulton, or a AAA, four-diamond dining experience at Garrison.
With more than 300 sunny days a year, Austin provides the ideal climate to get out and enjoy the area. Local lakes are a fun option for boating, canoeing or standup paddle boarding, and the surrounding landscape offers miles of hiking and biking trails throughout local and state parks. It’s no wonder Austin is ranked as one of America’s best cities to visit by U.S. News & World Report, Money, Kiplinger and Forbes.
Due to Fairmont Austin’s central location, planning a day trip from the hotel couldn’t be easier. Sample some local libations at Deep Eddy’s Vodka Distillery or with the Fredericksburg and Texas Hill Country Wine Tour. Discover hidden gems of the city with the Austin Detours Real Austin Tour or Live Music Crawl or get outside with Double Decker Austin or at Hamilton Pool.
To really embrace all that Austin has to offer, experiencing live music is a must. Attend an international festival such as South by Southwest or Austin City Limits, or pop into a local bar any night of the week like Continental Club, Parish or Antone’s.
