The property is spectacular and so is the service. I would stay there again and again. Everybody did a magnificent job and I would recommend this property to everybody in the Austin area. Even the room service food was spectacular

Hotel's Favorite
While we often enjoy staying at Fairmont properties, this was one of the best we’ve stayed at. Our room was so beautiful and super clean. The picture is the view from our room. The location was great for us. Mitchel was beyond helpful throughout our stay. He offered us many suggestions for restaurants and activities to do within and outside of Austin. Since we were with our kids, we were concerned about safety guidelines. The hotel felt very safe. All staff had masks appropriately on their face covering their mouth and nose. Also, the breakfast was really good.

We came in this weekend as a quick little family vacation. We had an amazing weekend with you all from the moment we pulled onto the front drive and was greeted by Kellylynn with valet she was so friendly and really engaged with our kiddos who usually are ignored or looked upon in frustration because they are smaller and a little rambunctious. But she talked with them and was silly with them while the Bellman I think his name was Duncan loaded our luggage onto a cart. We asked about the pool and Kellylynn let us know it does get pretty busy on weekends and not too kid friendly later in the day but if we were to go earlier in the morning that it would be a better time and she couldn’t have said it better we went and the kids had a blast before it started getting the party seen. Daniel the valet on front drive was also very good at his job on Sunday as we loaded up and left helping guide the kids into the car so we weren’t chasing them into traffic flow. Everyone throughout the hotel was so nice and friendly and even though you all seemed very busy with football games and groups throughout the hotel you managed to uphold the true Fairmont standards we love so much. Please give big kudos to everyone and thankful for them making it a great experience!

My husband and I have just returned home after spending 7 nights at the Austin Fairmont. It really felt like home away from home. The service was superb. Even before we got there, I had called the hotel and spoken with the Concierge, Kristina who exhibited excellent customer service skills. She emailed us information to help us plan our trip, Kristina was extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant to deal with. She and her colleague, Gabriel continued to help us throughout our stay and made us feel at home. Both Kristina and Gabriel made our stay most comfortable - they were most responsive each time we needed anything. We will definitely stay at the Fairmont next time we go to Austin. We have stayed at several other Austin hotels before and found that none compare with the facilities and service at the Fairmont. The hotel location, service and facilities such as the gym, pool and the bars are all excellent.

First time we have stayed there. It was a University of Texas football weekend, plus Parents Weekend. Needless to say there were ALOT of people there. However, service proved to be very personal. We called for room service at 6:40am only to be informed they did not open till 7. However they promised to call back when they did open. We laughed at this since the hotel was so full When our phone rang at 6:58, we were pleasantly shocked to have them call us and ask for our order. We received it within 30 minutes The bar and restaurant staff were helpful and friendly. Our valet Kevin Herrera ended our visit with top notch service.
