The Circuit is the only FIA-certified Grade 1 track in the United States, and one of only 26 Grade 1-certified Motorsports facilities in the world.

The hotel is located minutes from the State Capitol, University of Texas and Sixth Street, close to all that makes Austin unique and just four miles from Memorial Stadium and the Frank Erwin Centre and close to all the Longhorns action.

Entertainment is never far away in the “Live Music Capital of the World” because you can find live performances every day, just about any time of day or night, at the venues, cafes and nightclubs near the hotel’s address.
