Austin Luxury Hotels

Austin may be known as the 'world capital of live music'—and for its campaign to 'Keep Austin Weird'—but the richest city in Texas also knows how to live the high-life. From its luxury shopping malls and fascinating museums to its wildly extravagant foodie culture, these days the Texan state capital is more than happy to 'keep things fabulous' too. And that's all before you've even dipped into the city's rightly renowned music, film and arts scenes.

Things to see in Austin

Sixth Street is where many Austin visitors head first, hoping to catch the beat of the city's musical pulse. Exclusive clubs and legendary music venues like The Parish make a night out here about more than just good-time partying. There are some wonderfully eclectic clubs scattered throughout the rest of the city, perfect for discerning fans of everything from jazz to spoken word. Visual arts also top the bill in Austin. Check out the Renaissance masterpieces of the Blanton Museum of Art, the largest private art collection in the US. It also boasts contemporary artworks and a superb collection of Latin-American art. And if you're looking to exercise your credit card, Austin's extravagant new Domain shopping complex is happy to indulge you. Top designer-label stores and exclusive boutiques make this a retail heaven for serious shoppers.

How to get to Austin

Traveling to Austin is simple enough—there is only one airport, Austin Bergstrom International, which is just 6 miles from the city center. It is served by many national airlines and some international carriers too. From here, you can take a taxi into town, but if you book in advance, you can have your own chauffeur-driven limo to whisk you into the 'Live Music Capital of the World'. Austin is three hours from Houston and Dallas, and around 90 minutes from San Antonio by car. Traveling by car is the best way to get around the city itself.
