Fall in Love with Hilton Austin’s Autumn Old Fashioned

Pursuitist - 5-Star Luxury

There’s no bad time of year in Austin, but in the Fall the Texan city has special charm…and great boot weather. Exploring the unique culture means digging into Texas’ best live music scene, tucking into great BBQ and international fusions, and shopping for unique art and fashion at boutiques that do their darndest to keep Austin weird and wonderful.

Hilton Austin, in the center of Downtown, is a great location to be in the middle of it all. It’s attached to Austin Convention Center, is just two blocks away from East Sixth Street nightlife, and less than a mile to the picturesque Rainey Street Historic District. From Hilton Austin’s rooftop pool, guests can take in the view. And downstairs, the hotel’s restaurant and bar venues serve southern hospitality in a glass. For a taste of Austin at home, give their delicious Autumn Old Fashioned a try.
