Four Seasons Hotel, Austin

    The decor in the Four Seasons Hotel Austin’s lobby pairs replicas of battle-worn Republic of Texas flags with a cast-iron chandelier dripping with New Age quartz crystals. And while its facade, facing Texas’ state capitol building, is all business, the Four Seasons masquerades as a resort outside the back door, which borders the quiet waters of Town Lake. Inside the hotel, steaks and seafood beckon at the new TRIO restaurant, while Yellow Rose of Texas body wraps lure guests to the new spa. Guests also may be tempted by the many music clubs on Sixth Street, located just a few blocks away. Accommodations 291 guestrooms, including 28 suites, each with either a city or lake view. Facilities With a full spa and fitness center on-site, guests may find themselves forgetting the close proximity to the Fazio Foothills and Fazio Canyons, both designed by Tom Fazio. Dining TRIO serves classic steaks and seafood, pairing them with a great wine from their list of more than 300 bottles. Rates From $305 to about $2,050.
