Book very early to snag a room in luxury spots like the Four-Star Four Seasons Hotel Austin and the historic Driskill Hotel. If you miss the booking window and you want to stay overnight, you’re going to have to book a room outside of town. San Antonio is your best bet in that case, and it’s just over an hour away. Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Mokara Hotel & Spa is a great respite from the crowds at SXSW — it’s located right on the River Walk and blocks from the Alamo. You can also check in to the Tuscan-inspired Eilan Hotel Resort & Spa. It’s the city’s newest hotel and a nice place to unwind after a long day of concerts and events in Austin.
