Discover the Best Rates in Austin

Attending any city-wide international event like SXSW, you’ll find hotel rates can skyrocket. SXSW Housing & Travel has been contracting the lowest rates in Austin during SXSW for over 25 years as well as maintaining close relationships with some of the best properties in both downtown and the greater Austin area.

All of our partnered hotels are located within seven miles of the Austin Convention Center. If you are traveling on a budget, you’ll find the most affordable properties outside of the downtown area have access to a multitude of transportation options. No matter what area of the city you’d like to experience, we’ve got an option for you.

Downtown rooms tend to sell out fast, so the best way to get what you need is to register and book your hotel starting on August 1, 2019. This is important if you must be within walking distance of the Austin Convention Center. Contact SXSW Housing & Travel ahead of time if you have any questions about hotel properties, pricing, or how to book.
