Introducing the New Hilton Garden Inn Austin University Capitol District

The 214-room Hilton Garden Inn Austin University Capitol District is located in the heart of downtown Austin, close to the historic Texas Capitol and University of Texas at Austin campus, home of exciting Longhorn sports and the new Moody Center. The hotel is also just a short walk to trendy restaurants, bars and music venues on Austin’s famous Sixth Street. But what really sets the stylish hotel apart from the typical Hilton Garden Inn is its full-service restaurant, 4,000 square feet of event space and 17th-floor rooftop deck with sweeping views of the city.

The hotel was designed to reflect Austin’s thriving arts and culture scene, from its creative food and beverage offerings to its eclectic local art program.

Eats & Drinks

Analog bar and bites, located in the hotel’s main lobby, leads to a covered outdoor patio, offering guests tastes of Austin for lunch and dinner. Analog’s menu is inspired by the city’s food trucks, served alongside signature cocktails and craft beverages from Texas producers. Live music performed by local artists, big screen TVs and games also fill the space.

Patrons of Analog have exclusive access to Apex Rooftop, a chic terrace strung with lights that boasts panoramic views of the University of Texas, Texas Hill Country and the state capitol. The energetic outdoor space features plenty of comfy seating, lawn games, live music and occasional pop-up events. It can also be reserved for meetings and private parties of up to 120 guests when coupled with the adjoining indoor meeting space featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a pocket door.
