Renaissance Austin Hotel
A destination unto itself for business and leisure travelers.
This ten-story hotel is a cornerstone of the Austin Arboretum, an upscale collection of more than 50 specialty boutiques and restaurants. While it is a popular destination for diehard shoppers, it is also a good choice for those needing a weekend away, with plenty of hiking, biking and other activities nearby. With more than 65,000 square feet of meeting space, this hotel attracts corporate groups, as well as wedding parties. The expansive atrium never seems overcrowded, however. The large and airy guest rooms are done in the hues of a gentleman's study, with lots of leather adding richness to the décor. Among the amenities are wired and wireless high-speed Internet and LCD screen TVs with Internet access. Three on-site dining options ranging from bar fare to fine dining, includes Banderas - A Texas Bistro, serving tapas with Texan influences.
