Area Attractions

Whether you’re planning to spend a day at SXSW or an evening at an underground jazz bar, our location in the heart of downtown puts you steps away from the best of Austin. Stay within walking distance of the Austin Convention Center, Texas state Capitol, the UT Austin campus, and much more. Travel south from Hyatt Centric Congress Avenue Austin to reach the offbeat SoCo neighborhood, home to casually excellent Tex-Mex, whimsical shops, and area landmarks like the Continental Club. Or, head next door to the Paramount Theatre where you can see world-class performers light up one of the country’s grandest stages every week.
