Austin has a host of hotels at varying price points. Prices traditionally increase the closer you get to arrival so we recommend creating a reservation early and canceling later if your plans change. We have no block of rooms, but offer suggestions below.
The Arboretum is closer to Riverbend Church, but The Domain has very unique shopping if you are making a weekend out of your visit. Both locations offer extensive dining options. Hotels in these locations tend to provide lower cost, less traffic and free parking over the downtown hotels. Many include breakfast. Austin Bergstrom International Airport (ABIA) is located about 20 miles from these areas of town and Riverbend is 6-8 miles from these hotels.
