Not only is Austin the capital of the Lone Star State, but it's pretty much the capital of cool. With a vibrant arts culture, "live music capital of the world" status, and active outdoor scene, it doesn't get much more hip than Austin. And for visitors of the Silicon Hills, there's plenty both around the city and from the comfort of their hotels. For a city that has so much to do at every corner, it's no wonder their hotels amenities also pack a pretty cool punch. Travaasa Austin is set on its own nature preserve on a hilltop amid forested canyons, 20 miles west of downtown Austin. Hiking trails, an infinity-edge pool enclosed by a wooden deck, an on-site mechanical bull, and Road Rules-style challenge course are just some of the amenities providing inspiration and relaxation for visitors.
