I recently stayed 2 nights at the Four Seasons in Austin. We were scheduled to stay 3 nights but checked out early due to our overall disappointment with the property It was one of my most disappointing hotel stays in a long time. This hotel feels more like a regular Marriott than a Four Seasons. The hotel is old and the rooms are dated. I stayed in a lakeview suite which was nothing spectacular. Some of the Four Seasons properties I have stayed at are unbelievable like Jackson Hole, Hualalai and others like the properties in Austin and Dallas are in serious need of room renovations. Both the properties in Texas are dated and you simply feel cheated by how dated the rooms are. The Austin property has a nice lobby and common areas but still does not feel like a Four Seasons. The lobby and common areas and grounds in Dallas are outstanding. However, you don't spend the night in the lobby. The hotel is extremely clean in every area and is what one would expect. If I were to go back to Austin I would not stay at the Four Seasons, it is simply not worth it for the condition of the rooms. The air conditioning is also very loud but did pump out some cold air and cooled the room very well.

Room Tip: Lake view room with a balcony. Be sure to book a balcony because not all rooms have them.

The Four Seasons Austin is by far the best hotel in Austin. They make you feel welcomed throughout your stay and the staff are always available if something extra is needed. This is a great hotel for travelers and also locals. Great restaurant and great lounge.

I live in Austin ~ and this is the only lounge area within a hotel that I would actually go out of my way to visit! The staff, service and atmosphere is phenomenal! Located in the heart of Austin, just off Lady Bird Lake ~ both the City views as well as the Lake views are outstanding! Did I mention the Spa? A short walk to the Hike and Bike Trail. 5 star in my book!

Room Tip: South side for lake/sunset views, North side for City Views....

I recently was part of a 2-day conference held at the Four Seasons and was very impressed with my overall experience. The staff was very personable and always there to a lend a hand when needed. The food/drinks and venue were great. The location is in the heart of downtown Austin with great views of the city and the hotel has plenty of amenities to enjoy such as spa service, restaurants/bars and easy access to downtown night life.

I just concluded a 2-day business meeting at the Four Seasons Austin, and my group and I found it to be a wonderful property for us! The food was delicious, the ambiance was a nice mix of rugged/Texas luxury, and the staff was very attentive. The one very small negative is that the rooms could use a refresher, as they felt a bit dated.

My favorite part about the hotel is the location! It is situated right on Lady Bird Lake, and features lovely treed grounds with plenty of outdoor seating. When sitting in their "backyard", it feels like you are in a resort property, when you are actually in the middle of the city. We were easily able to walk to the hot spots in Austin: 6th Street, South Congress, Rainey Street - I'm sure there are other areas I missed, too! My colleagues and I were also easily able to find delicious restaurants just a short walk away, too.

I would definitely come back to the Four Seasons Austin with or without a group. I hope I am able to get a room with a view of the lake again - that was really special!

Room Tip: Ask for one with a lake view!

Very personable and personal staff; great food, drink, rooms, decor, pool, views. Great room service, nice bed, Trio wonderful restaurant, lovely area near lake. The lake side rooms cost more of course, but you are in the heart of the city and can easily walk to the lake.
