Big thank you to Better Than a Hotel for sponsoring this post – all opinions are my own.
Austin is low key, a popular tourist destination. Just yesterday, I met a couple from Baltimore, who took a mini vacay down to Austin, just because. I love that about this city. It’s the perfect place to go when you want to get away for just a weekend, especially during the winter season when Austin is usually sunny and warm.
On the other hand, sometimes you just want to get away, without actually leaving Austin. IDK about you, but I love a little staycation – a chance to decompress, without the hassles of traveling. Whether you’re a local, looking to get away for a day or two, or you’re coming from out of town, Better Than a Hotel has you covered. Better Than a Hotel offers it’s guests townhomes and apartments with high-end, hotel-style amenities. They have numerous locations around the city, so you’ll be able to find one close to whatever area you’re wanting visit.
Many of Better Than a Hotel’s townhomes and apartments are located within walking distance to UT’s campus, making this the PERFECT place to stay for football season. And, if you’re looking to make the trip to Austin for ACL or SXSW, Better Than a Hotel is a no-brainer. They have locations close Zilker Park and downtown, so you won’t miss out on any of the music or after parties.
Just last week, Better Than a Hotel hooked me up for my own mini staycation. I stayed in one of the 3 bed, 2.5 bath townhomes close to the UT campus. The space was immaculately clean, and came with an in-unit washer and dryer. This particular townhouse was perfect for large groups, as it was a 3 bedroom, but had 5 beds total (not to mention a super comfy couch), so the space could easily sleep 10. Each and every Better Than a Hotel stay comes with free, onsite parking, which really makes all the difference, especially when you won’t have to fork out $30/night to park in a hotel parking garage. My particular townhome came with its own garage, which was just icing on the cake for an amazing one-night stay.
