Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has debuted its largest property in the United States: the Fairmont Austin. The new hotel has 1,048 guestrooms, five restaurants and bars, the largest outdoor pool and full service spa in Downtown Austin, a fitness center, nearly 140,000 square feet of event space, and direct access to the Austin Convention Center via the Red River Canopy Walk.

Fairmont Austin is also the second largest Fairmont hotel globally, in both number of rooms and total meeting and event space.

"A strategic opening for AccorHotels, Fairmont Austin is the first in a series of high-profile luxury developments marking a time of significant growth for the Group and its brands in North and Central America," said Kevin Frid, Chief Operating Officer, North & Central America, AccorHotels, in a written release. "Other notable openings anticipated in the next 18 to 24 months include the iconic Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles, Sofitel Mexico Reforma in Mexico City, Fairmont Costa Canuva in Mexico's Riviera Nayarit, Fairmont Saint Lucia at Sunset Bay in the Caribbean, and several soon-to-be-announced projects with the potential to introduce new brands into the region."

Officially the largest hotel in Austin at 1,048 rooms, 37 stories and nearly 140,000 square feet of meeting and event space, Fairmont Austin is situated in the Central Business District, amid the greenery of Palm Park and Waller Creek, with exclusive direct access to the Austin Convention Center via the Red River Canopy Walk. Debuting as the second tallest building in the city, the hotel adds a new dimension to the downtown skyline, with a "lighted crown" programmed with an array of color options and a 170-foot tall architectural spire that is illuminated in the evenings, making the building visible from throughout Central Texas.

Each of the hotel's guestrooms and suites offer views of the surrounding area and designs spotlighting cool shades of blue, bright white and honey beige inspired by the Texas Hill Country landscape. Fairmont Gold, the brand's exclusive lifestyle hotel experience, has 131 rooms and suites located on the 32nd through 35th floors, and offers private check-in and checkout; complimentary deluxe breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres in the Gold lounge; and a dedicated concierge team.

In terms of dining, there is the Garrison modern American grill house; Revue, which offers seafood and Asian and Italian cuisine; and an artisanal pastry shop. Rules & Regs, located on the seven floor and overlooking Austin's cityscape, serves cocktails and other drinks. Located in the main lobby, Fulton pays homage to the musically buzzed streets of Austin with daily live music, local wine, beer and spirits in a relaxed dining scene with creative shared plates. Good Things offers coffee and tea, snacks, food to go, and beverages.
