The Austin Marriott Downtown has opened, nearby popular downtown tourist attractions, bars and restaurants. The 31-story tower is home to hand-crafted food and beverage offerings, advanced health and safety features, and plenty of outdoor and socially distant options for connecting with others.
Guestrooms start on Level Seven to maximize views of Lady Bird Lake, the University of Texas campus, the city skyline and, in the distance, Texas Hill Country. Of the 613 guestrooms, 25 are suites. Guests can expect locally inspired accents, a work surface, walk-in showers and spa-like lighting.
Food and Beverage
Zanzibar, a seventh-floor rooftop terrace and pool oasis with views of downtown, opened before the hotel in September 2020. The menu includes modern tiki cocktails and island-inspired small plates. Specialty drinks are influenced with exotic spices grown in Zanzibar, including cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and clove. It also has its own street-level elevator access on San Jacinto Boulevard.
With one of the largest outdoor patios on West Cesar Chavez Street, Corinne is an "honest and fresh" neighborhood dining and cocktail spot serving regional classics and American comfort food with an emphasis on rotisserie dishes. Menu items include Rotisserie Chicken dusted with mustard, thyme and lemon, Truffled Bucatini and Wagyu Beef Tartare. This is the second Corinne location following the first that opened in Denver in 2017.
The Lobbyist, with a grand staircase entry, is a two-story cocktail bar with a mezzanine level overlooking the entire hotel lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows to the outside. Additionally, Loaf + Vine is an urban grocer with a selection of quick and freshly made meals, grab-and-go options, fresh bakery goods, cold drinks and coffee beverages, wines and craft beers.
