The hotel offers a great view of the lake, of the boaters, and of the nightly flight of bats from the Congress Street bridge. However, not all rooms have a balcony. The hotel also has a great spa and a pool, but bathrooms are inconveniently located in the spa only.

3. Holiday Inn Austin-Town Lake
Address: 20 North IH-35, Austin, TX 78701

This is a particularly great choice if you get a room with a view over the lake, rather than one overlooking the parking lot. Since the hotel is so close to the lake, you can even go for a run. Amenities may sometimes lack from some of the rooms, and meals may be quite dull.

4. JW Marriott Austin
Address: 110 E. Second Street, Austin, TX 78701, Downtown
URL: http://marriott.com/AUSJW
