There are so many Austin Texas hotels to choose from that it could sometimes become a mission finding the right one. I have discovered a few hotels in Austin that are definitely worth considering...
When looking for hotels for my family, I look for hotels that will work well for kids. A pool is a handy feature, and if it has more than a pool to keep the kids happy, even better!
It is also very helpful if the hotel is close to attractions or at least offers easy access to main roads.
So which are my top-rated hotels in Austin?
The Staybridge Suites Austin Arboretum is a favorite among Austin Texas hotels with an outdoor pool, a tennis court, basketball court, and an indoor exercise room.
The rooms (suites, I should say) are spacious and nicely decorated. Each room has a kitchenette, which is very handy to make a quick snack for hungry kids! The hotel also has a guest laundromat available.
The Staybridge Suites is located near restaurants and other shopping in North Austin, which is very convenient.
The Embassy Suites Hotel Austin Arboretum is a very nice hotel also in Austin's Arboretum area. It has an indoor pool, a spa tub, and a fitness center. There are two swans in the lobby area that the kids are sure to enjoy!
The room are beautifully decorated, and clean and comfortable.
The Embassy Suites offers complimentary transportation to the shopping and restaurant areas in the immediate vicinity.
The Austin Airport Marriott South is a fine hotel located south of downtown Austin near the Ben White Blvd/I-35 intersection. The location might not be the prettiest, but it offers easy access to highways to get around Austin.
The hotel has an indoor pool, a whirlpool, and a fitness center. There is an on-site restaurant that serves American cuisine, and a bar that serves cocktails, beer, and light food.
The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful.
If you want to stay in Downtown Austin, the Hampton Inn & Suites Austin Downtown is a hotel to consider. It has an outdoor pool and a fitness room. The hotel is very nicely decorated. The rooms are also beautiful, clean, and comfortable.
The hotel is located only 3 blocks from 6th Street's bars and restaurants. Lady Bird Lake (the new name for Town Lake) Hike & Bike trail is close too. So is the Congress Ave. bridge where the famous bats can be seen from March to early November.
Given how expensive downtown hotels can be, you can probably find a very reasonable deal at this one!
The Habitat Suites Hotel is a "green" hotel. This means they use natural, nontoxic cleaners in and around the hotel, and they use ozonators and ionizers to ensure clean air in rooms. Quite something, isn't it?
The hotel has a wonderful, peaceful atmosphere. The suites a spacious and comfortable. Each is equipped with a kitchen. The hotel also has a nice outdoor pool.
The Habitat Suites is located a few miles north of downtown Austin, next to the Highland Mall. I think this is truly one of the unique Austin Texas hotels!
The Courtyard Austin Airport, a smoke-free hotel, is located near Austin Bergstrom airport on Ben White Blvd. It is a nice, family-friendly hotel, with an indoor pool and laundry facilities.
The rooms are comfortable and clean, and rollaway beds are available if you need one. The hotel staff are also friendly and helpful.
I think these hotels in Austin would all be good choices for a stay in Austin. They are all reasonably priced and all have pools to help keep the kids happy.
These are some of the better choices among Austin Texas hotels. There are of course many others to choose from. If you would like to consider a few other choices before making a decision, here is a full listing of Austin hotels...
I hope you find a great Austin hotel and that you have a wonderful stay in Austin!
