Luxurious Hill Country hotel near downtown Austin

Hotel Granduca Austin, Texas


Superior room




A luxurious stay at an elegant new hotel with Italian flair and a hilltop location boasting gorgeous views

Austin might be quirky and unpredictable, but the service at Italian-flavored Hotel Granduca is anything but. A member of Leading Hotels of the World and sister property to the award-winning Houston hotel of the same name, this property has southern hospitality with a touch of la dolce vita down to an art.

Find all the finer things you could want in life, or at least in a hotel stay, from a saltwater pool to à la carte Sunday brunch. This hilltop gem, which already ranks near the top of the city's hotel on TripAdvisor, even provides complimentary, chauffeured black-car service within three miles.
Another thing you can rely on is that when you feel like embracing Austin’s weird and wacky side, you won’t have to go very far. You’re minutes from downtown, and you’ll have no trouble checking out the Texas Capitol and diving into the iconic music scene. And when you’re ready to return to a slower and steadier pace, head back to the hotel for evening cocktails at The Veranda.

Good to know

Please note that a Munson Park wilderness-conservation fee of $14 per room, per night will be added on the payment screen.

Our advertised lowest rate is available in June, but every bookable date is still the lowest price for that room, on that night, that you'll find anywhere online.
