With an eye for trendy destinations that possess the most extraordinary spirit, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts made Austin, Texas the home of its newest addition: the Fairmont Austin. Boasting an ideal climate with more than 300 days of sunshine a year and dubbed the Live Musical Capital of the World, it’s no wonder the city has been ranked as one of the America's best cities — and Fairmont Hotels & Resorts newest home. Nestled in the heart of the city adjacent to Palm Park and Waller Creek, the newest Fairmont property is 37 stories of modern architecture and mirrored glass. In a city known for its flourishing arts scene, live music venues (and performances) historic landmarks and distinctive restaurants, a hotel like the Fairmont Austin is a perfect fit.
