A sky-high rooftop pool awaits guests at this towering hotel in Austin's center. After lounging in the sun, guests might book in for a spa treatment and massage. Or perhaps slink off to their luxury rooms furnished with coffeemakers, flat-panel TVs and WiFi. Fancy a trip out? The lively music scene of Sixth Street is less than ten minutes by foot, along with a host of other popular streets and attractions.

Hang out among the hipsters and craft bars of Rainey Street, found a short walk from this hotel. Then, back inside the lodgings, it's all about the movie theater, rooftop pool and comfortable rooms where guests can kick back with cable TV, coffeemakers and free WiFi.

Looking for some things to do near Zilker Park? Click to view our full listing of bookable activities in Austin!

What is the surrounding area like?

There's a decent choice of restaurants and hotels near Zilker Park. We recommend strolling south along Barton Springs Road or, if you don't mind walking 30 minutes, head over the bridge to Downtown Austin for a generous spread of pubs and fashionable restaurants. Either way it's worth wearing comfy shoes so you can scout out that perfect meal or pint.

Where are the best places to eat near Zilker Park?

Shady Grove

Hot summer day? Swing by this laidback eatery where a patio is shaded by a grove of pecan trees. Diners enjoy favorites like the tortilla-fried queso catfish and tacos, as live music regularly fills the air.

Magnolia Cafe

The kitchen never closes at this 24-hour cafe where you can get breakfast any time of the day or night. It's not all pancakes, though. House specials include spinach lasagna, pasta Caspian and the house stir fry.

Juliet

A wood-smoked grill gives the meat and veggies an aromatic flavor at this Italian restaurant. The outside area is tree-shaded, while the stylish decor continues indoors for an upmarket dining experience. Enjoy some olive oil tasting, served with house-made bread, before a dish such as the seared scallops with saffron and asparagus, or the spaghetti carbonara.

What are the 'must do' activities around Zilker Park?

Lady Bird Lake

Work those abs with some stand-up paddleboarding. Or just go traditional in a canoe. This scenic lake is a hive of activity, surrounded by a ten-mile trail for joggers, cyclists and general athletic folk.

Barton Spring Pool

This spring-fed pool makes for a refreshing dip on warm days. Of course, you will be battling for room with half the city but then again entry is only $4.

Zilker Botanical Garden

Waterfalls and streams babble as visitors explore the gardens filled with flora including roses and Japanese-inspired greenery. All for $2 entry (cash only).

Any other info visitors might want to know?

Like to pedal? Austin has a bike sharing scheme with 40 stations spread about the place. Pay $8 for 24 hours of whizzing along the city's 35 miles of bikeways and off-street paths such as the Lance Armstrong Bikeway.

What's the best way to get to Zilker Park?

As you can imagine, traffic can get pretty bad for large events and festivals. So it's worth researching your other options. Sometimes a shuttle bus will run from Republic Square in Downtown Austin. If staying close by, consider walking or cycling; there are lots of bike racks across the park.

How's the food and drink?

It really depends on the event, as the concessions are temporary. If you're there for Austin City Limits, their site has an up-to-date list of the food options, which are usually pretty good, covering all the favorites from ice cream to pizza and burgers.

Does the venue have WiFi?

Yep, courtesy of the City of Austin, you can surf away free of charge in and around Zilker Park.

Is there parking?

Technically yes but, be warned, spaces will quickly fill up depending on the size of the event. Some residential roads might even be blocked off.

How much does parking cost?

The standard fee is $5 per car but it can vary across events. If you're willing to park further away, you could look at One Texas Center ($5-15), or the Palmer Event Center ($8 for most events).

What time do doors normally open?

It'll be specific to the event so check your ticket.

Any other important info I should know?

The park is 351 acres in size, meaning there's a fair potential for arriving late, half-way through your favorite song. Here's a map for planning your route. If coming in a big group, you might want to have a designated meeting spot.

l A Saturday afternoon spent walking in the park, along the river, over the bridge and back. The park is very popular with the dog crowd, the frisbee set and the sun seekers. Parking it reasonable...

l Nice place to picnic and walk. Fresh clean looking water. Swimmers swimming though 65 degrees outside. Pecan trees abound and have pecans ready for pickup.

l This fine park has unexpected pleasures--chiefmost among them the splendid, spring-fed pool. I loved it! We visited on the day after Thanksgiving so the botanical gardens were closed. Too bad...
