Oyster Hotel Review

Holiday Inn Austin Airport


Clean, bright, and spacious public spaces

The public spaces at the Holiday Inn Austin Airport are bright and spacious, with high ceilings and large windows. The beige and coffee-colored color palette creates a calm and relaxed environment, without too much furniture or decoration to clutter up the space. The pleasant outdoor stone terrace at the back of the hotel has several comfortable sofas where guests can relax with a drink. Having opened in 2014, the whole property has a clean, pleasant, and chic atmosphere. It's unquestionably attractive, but it does lack any connection to the city of Austin and its funky personality. Given the hotel's location near the Austin airport and several companies, most of the guests are business travelers.
