Great place, comfortable beds, and amazing shower. Awesome BBQ place right across the road. No issues with anything, staff were professional and friendly. My kids ordered pancakes for breakfast and it was $41. Probably not the place to stay if you’ve got a budget!

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.

Check-in took 45 minutes. When questioned, staff said, it’s actually better than yesterday which was 2 hours. When I had a question how to access wifi as an Accor member, I waited for an hour on the phone for “Royal Service” which kept ringing and finally gave up. Texted the number given by checkin staff with no reply 5 hours later. Pool was so crowded mid-week with no seating. It’s a nice hotel but with this kind of service, we are not coming back. We were very disappointed with the Fairmont service and experience.

I've been staying at the Fairmont every few months for the past year while my home is being built on Lake Travis. Fairmont Austin General Manager Nenad Praporski and his amazing staff of professionals always go the extra mile to make sure things go smoothly! The Fairmont parking facility is spacious, safe, and convenient. The entire hotel is very clean and all of the amenities are modern and very user friendly. I will continue to stay there until my home is completed and will be recommending Fairmont Austin to all of my friends and family when they visit the Austin area. Keep up the great work!!!!

We had such a great time. We so enjoyed the excellent service and hospitality at the Fairmont. We have become Fairmont fans for life! Everyone treated us so well and we felt so spoiled! Abe Mendoza went above & beyond with Andrea and decorated our room for my 50th birthday and included a few Fairmont goodies as a surprise! We also had amazing service from Tory Nelson and Chris G up in the pool area. They were so good to us! We loved our stay at the Fairmont Austin. Thank you for everything! Cheers!
