Almost anything in downtown Austin is going to be within walking distance of bars, restaurants, etc. For the really happening part of Austin, consider the new-ish W Hotel on 2nd Street. For something a little more laid back, but still in a great area for walking, eating, drinking, and shopping, the Hotel San Jose on South Congress is wonderful. From there, you can easily walk downtown, or take an inexpensive cab ride.

I like staying at Austin Motel but you may prefer San Jose. I basically park the car and walk everywhere - up and down S Congress and into downtown.

whattaya wanna do ? - shop eat clubs?

We're a very car-centric place (aka Texas) so the more you can narrow it down - the more we can give good advice
