    Hyatt Regency Austin
    Austin, TX
    0.4 miles to city center
    • Free WiFi

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Resting serenely on the shores of Lady Bird Lake (across the Congress Avenue Bridge from downtown Austin), the Hyatt Regency Austin is a great choice for families and outdoorsy travelers. Its location garners rave reviews since Sixth Street, Zilker Park and the Austin Bats are just a stone's throw away. Meanwhile, recent guests enjoyed activites on the lake thanks to the Hyatt's boat tours and dinner cruises. Back at the hotel, the location is also convenient for business travelers and small conferences. Though recent visitors say the rooms are comfortable and full of amenities like flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, guests mention that the lodging is beginning to show signs of age. Some visitors also complain of noise traveling easily due to the Hyatt's atrium-centric layout. But recent guests do note that the customer service here is top-notch, and the Marker 10 restaurant hits the spot with its sushi bar and live music. Because this is a Hyatt hotel, Gold Passport loyalty club members can earn and redeem points here.

    Lakeway Resort and Spa

    • Free WiFi

    Located about 22 miles northwest of downtown Austin, the Lakeway Resort and Spa caters more to R&R seekers than it does to tourists. This beautiful complex rests on the banks of Lake Travis in Texas Hill Country, leading to spectacular views for those of you practicing your swing on one of four 18-hole championship golf courses (including Flintrock Falls, a Jack Nicklaus-designed course). Lakeway also boasts a full-service spa, which offers a long menu of massages and skin treatments. And if you're looking to take to the tides, head to the Lakeway Marina for opportunities to sail and fish, or simply lounge by the property's pool. Recent guests highly recommend ending your day with dinner at the on-site eatery, Lake Travis Restaurant. And though they describe the grounds as stunning, previous visitors say that the guest rooms feel dated, despite their flat-screen TVs and private balconies. Some also warn against hidden resort fees, which can spark a serious case of sticker shock upon checkout.

    Miraval Austin
    Austin, TX
    14.5 miles to city center
    • Free Parking

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free Parking

    Located about 18 miles northwest of central Austin on approximately 220 acres of land near Lake Travis, Miraval Austin opened in early 2019. Guests have their choice of rooms or suites, all of which are decorated in calming neutral hues of white, gray and blue, and feature large windows that let natural sunlight pour in. All accommodations at this all-inclusive resort come equipped with coffee makers, minifridges, 65-inch LCD TVs and in-room safes. But chances are you won't be spending a ton of time in your room: Miraval Austin's resort fee, an additional 23% of your room rate, covers dozens of activities and experiences every week for you to take advantage of. You can enjoy horseback riding, yoga classes, hiking, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, cooking classes and more. The resort also features a spa that offers everything from classic massages and nail services to treatments like body renewal wraps and scrubs. Overall, previous visitors complimented the welcoming staff at the Miraval Austin and said it's an excellent place to relax, unwind and disconnect. (In fact, the resort encourages a digital device-free atmosphere and prohibits cellphones and e-readers in many areas.) Many also praised the beautiful grounds and facilities. However, a handful of guests experienced a few drawbacks: Some said the food options could use some improvement in quality and variety, and others said the hotel as a whole seems to have a few additional kinks it needs to work out. Keep in mind, Miraval Austin is part of the Hyatt brand, so World of Hyatt members can earn and redeem points for stays here.
