On our recent trip to Austin, Texas, the Grassroots Racing team had the opportunity to stay at The Fairmont Austin, a newly opened 37 story luxury hotel.
The Fairmont Austin is uniquely located in the central business district near Palm Park and Waller Creek, and directly connected to the Austin Convention Center. The hotel features over 1000 guest rooms and suites with views of the city skyline and the State Capitol. Located in the heart of downtown Austin, this hotel is in a completely walk-able neighborhood with tons of nearby restaurants, music venues and attractions.
We enjoyed staying in a luxury junior suite, which featured a sitting area and an amazing view of downtown Austin. The spacious suite was perfect as our home base while in town for our races at Circuit of the Americas. It’s a close 25 minute drive to the race track and was a relaxing and luxurious place to return to after each race day. The hotel amenities include a seasonally heated roof top pool with chaise loungers and cabanas for guests to relax and enjoy a day in the sun. There are over 5 different restaurants and bars located in the hotel to cater to every palate. The Fairmont Austin spa offers nine treatment rooms, Jacuzzi, steam, sauna, yoga/aerobics, dedicated relaxation room, a full-service salon and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
Staying at The Fairmont Austin truly made this a luxury race experience with opportunity to relax and unwind after a busy day at the track. We were also able to explore downtown Austin and take in the amazing local food and music scene.
