Something big is going down. Downright Austin is opening in spring 2024, bringing its own unique and decidedly Downright take on the global Renaissance Hotels brand. Located in downtown Austin, Downright Austin will feature a bold and postmodern lobby experience, 367 stylish guest rooms including five suites, 31,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event spaces, and new culinary concepts, all within blocks of the Texas State Capitol and Moody Amphitheater. Guests can now get a sneak peek at the newly designed rooms at exclusive pre-opening rates before the grand opening event.
“We are thrilled to introduce Downright in the city of Austin and look forward to serving both those traveling and the local community,” said Erica Graham, Senior Vice President, Portfolio Management, Brookfield. “Our decision to open in Austin was inspired by the city’s distinct independent spirit and originality. With a commitment to bringing something fresh and dynamic to the lively landscape of Austin, Downright Austin will add an elevated social scene and an exciting calendar of curated programming and events.”
Currently in the final phase of a multimillion-dollar transformation, Downright draws inspiration from the authentic Texas pride that defines Austin — a city that encourages individuals to embrace their true selves, pursue their desires, and do so with unwavering enthusiasm. The architecture boldly expresses this ethos through its unapologetic pink hue and modernist geometry. The building seamlessly blends postmodern elements with timeless design, bridging the past and present of Austin. Featuring an open and airy ambiance, natural terra-cotta colors and textures, abundant greenery, natural light and checkerboard design, the hotel will encapsulate the essence of Austin’s vibrant spirit.
Located within steps from the lively Red River District, home to some of the city’s best live music venues, Downright Austin is the ultimate destination for both locals and visitors seeking an immersive stay-and-play experience. Adding even more vibrancy to Austin’s culinary landscape, Lost Boy & Co., in collaboration with local industry veterans FBR Management, is set to unveil two distinctive dining and cocktail experiences within the property this spring. Set in a sunken dining room with submarine views of the adjacent new pool, one of the restaurants will celebrate poolside leisure and summertime fare. Additionally, a new lobby concept featuring a walk-up counter is tailored for locals and hotel guests in search of a quick morning coffee or on-the-go breakfast.
