There may be an array of events and activities that encompass the Texas experience, but for those in Austin, The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel’s True Texas Grilling Experience is the newest to join the ranks.  

The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel’s newest attraction known as The Texas Experience is an interactive culinary experience in which guests can experience the flavors and cooking techniques of Texas firsthand. 

To best enjoy your Texan experience, Danelle Awtrey, director of sales & marketing, says that the best locations in the hotel are the Capital Ballroom A, which is 3,800 square feet and can hold 80-100 people, or the Capital Foyer, which includes French doors that open up to the 7th Street Terrace.  

In addition to The Texas Experience, the hotel’s chef and culinary team are regularly updating their catering menus to reflect food & beverage trends. Shifting from food, the hotel also offers a variety of meeting and event facilities that are perfect for occasions of any size, along with the services of six event planning professionals who are always ready to help make your event the best it can be.  

Whether you’re searching for a delicious Texas tasting experience, puppy-filled break rooms (which the hotel is partnering with a local animal shelter to make a reality for guests during meeting breaks), a hotel close to some of Austin’s greatest attractions, or boozy popsicles to help get you through the Texas heat, you’ll surely find it all at InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel.  

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
