Why We Like This Place

  • The grand lobby is gorgeous: The state of Texas is laid out on the tiled floor, arched windows let in plenty of sunlight, and there’s room enough for a grand celebration.
  • It’s conveniently located in downtown Austin, so it’s a breeze to reach from the Interregional Highway—plus the underground garage makes parking painless.
  • A 35-foot-tall bronze star sculpture greets you at the front doors and sets the stage for a spectacular soirée.
