Austin's tallest hotel rises 31 stories over one of downtown's quieter blocks, next to small Brush Park (home to the O. Henry House), but the Hilton is defined by its proximity to the Austin Convention Center. Only two blocks away, fully equipped with meeting rooms, two restaurants, coffee shop and business center, this is the conventioneers' hostelry. Standard rooms have two full beds or one king and a leather loveseat. The entire eighth floor is a 16,000-square-foot health club with an outdoor saltwater pool, steam room and sauna, and state of the art gym with views of UT's stadium. The onsite Finn and Porter restaurant is an excellent option for steak or sushi.
