Our hotel near SXSW is just 8 miles away from all of the events in downtown Austin. Save on your visit to the massive festival that takes over the downtown area by staying in one of our comfortable hotel rooms! If you’re coming as a group, our event space is a great place to reconnect, plan your day, or host a formal meeting.
SXSW has been running since 1987, bringing together innovation in technology and media. The festival’s three components showcase some of the best in the world in the categories of music—it’s the largest music festival in the world—technology, film, and more.
Unlike most festivals, SXSW is mostly indoors. You’ll still be doing a lot of walking between amazing musical performances and unique events, so wear some comfortable shoes, but don’t worry about mud or weather! Don’t forget to bring a backup battery or charger for your phone. There are events all day and night, and you’ll be running between venues to catch them, so prepare to check the time often.
To make the most of your time traveling to SXSW from our hotel, make sure to plan ahead! SXSW provides a Pocket Guide which will let you plan what you want to see and where you’ll need to be. Make sure to download an offline map of the area, because there are often so many people in Austin that you may not have cellphone coverage.
Start your day off with a hearty free breakfast at our hotel, because there’s a lot to do all day—and all night—at SXSW!
Our hotel has direct Interstate access to downtown Austin. Simply take US-290 to Exit 235A to Interstate 35, which will take you right into the heart of the city and the heart of the action.
