Hotel's Favorite
My friends and I had a wonderful staycation at Fairmont Austin for a birthday celebration. Brandon at the front desk and Aaron on the front drive were incredibly professional and welcoming during check-in. Ryan at the Concierge desk provided an excellent suggestion to go eat at Loro for dinner which we couldn’t be happier with. Chase the chauffeur took great care of us in the house car whenever we needed a ride around town. To top things off when we got back to our room we were surprised to be greeted with champagne to end a great a night. I would certainly recommend Fairmont to anyone looking for a great stay in Austin.

Needing a place to stay during the ice/snow storm of 2021, we were fortunate enough to land at the Fairmont. The staff was incredible! They were friendly and professional from the time we arrived until we "sadly" had to go home. We've dined at the Fairmont in the past and we know how wonderful the food is. With the limited supplies forced upon the entire city, the staff was able to feed us well. We can't wait to return to the Fairmont Austin on our next staycation.

Though everyone was masked up but you could see the genuine smile 😃 😊 coming through the masks. The ability and willingness of everyone to help was just fascinating. This can only be a reflection of a fantastic leadership, bringing the best out of their staff.

Amazing Hotel, friend staff, great facility. Clean rooms, felt at peace amidst the pandemic and was worry free. I will definitely return any time any day to Fairmont Austin. Really Liked the idea that you couldn't use the guest elevator with a room key especially going up. This extra step security to me is amazing.
