Why locals recommend it
The pink-granite building is the centerpiece of downtown Austin, perched on a hill at 12th Street and Congress Avenue. Free guided tours are held daily, starting in the South Foyer, but brochures are also available on the first floor for self-guided tours. The Texas Legislature meets every two years, so you’ll have to check the schedule if you want to see an actual session in progress.

Texas Capitol is in walking distance from our property. While it could be a bit hot to walk in Summer months, the rest of the year it is worth to visit and walk in a beautiful park.

The state capitol is a great place to visit and just a few blocks down, you will be in SoCo (South Congress) where you will find the stores and restaurants embodied with the quirkiness of Austin. There is ample amount of parking meters around the capitol.
