Austin, Texas is best known for its music scene. Almost nightly, you can find a live band playing at clubs, coffeehouses, bars, concert halls, and more, with musicians like Janis Joplin and Willie Nelson who have called this city home. If you’re looking for the best hotel in Austin to visit to embrace the music scene in the city, look no further than The Otis Hotel, Autograph Collection.
Conveniently located in the Campus District close to the University of Texas, The Otis Hotel infuses musical touches into every element of this upscale property. This hotel embraces the spirit of the city being named as The Live Music Capital of the World by offering guests the choice of records to borrow in their lobby library to play in their room. Each guest room has vinyl record players to let guest pick their own soundtrack for their stay and is decorated with local art and collegial designs.
To cool off from the hot Texas sun, head up to the rooftop heated pool exclusive for guests of The Otis Hotel. The lounge chairs boast some of the best aerial views of Austin and the private cabanas are a great choice to enjoy a drink or two or drive into your favourite musician’s autobiography.
Choose between the rooftop bar beside the pool or the lobby restaurant to drink and dine during your stay. Open from sunrise to sunset, Otopia serves refreshing cocktails and light bites to nibble on while catching a glimpse of the city or between dips in the rooftop pool.
In the lobby, Acre 41 is an American Contemporary restaurant with a Texas flair serving iron skillet cornbread to start and savory shrimp and grits or a belly-on pork chop for dinner.
