More About Hotels near East Austin...

Plenty of Options for Affordable Accommodations

East Austin has a few budget hotels in the neighborhood including the DoubleTree by Hilton, which is close to the University of Texas at Austin, and the Super 8 Austin, a few blocks from the historic Texas State Cemetery. Guests can also stay in nearby downtown where hotels like Hyatt Place, Residence Inn, and Hampton Inn are all within walking distance of lively bars, music venues, and shopping.

Easy to Get Around Austin

Austin’s excellent public transportation system makes it easy to get around no matter where you choose to sleep. The clean MetroBus and MetroRail take visitors all over the city. There's even an Airport Flyer bus that runs from the Austin-Bergstorm Airport to downtown and the University of Texas campus. Taxis are also plentiful, and a cab from the airport to downtown will cost around $30.

Visit Austin in Fall or Spring

Austin has hot weather from May to September with temperatures reaching well into the 90s most days, so plan to visit in October or April. The city hosts some of the country’s most popular festivals, including Austin City Limits Music Festival in October and South by Southwest in March, so expect hotels to be packed and rates to be higher then. The least expensive time to visit is during winter and though it rarely snows, ice storms can happen in January and February.
