From CEOs to domain investors, professionals from every corner of the domain industry are getting ready to join us in Austin for NamesCon Global 2020. That means we blew through two blocks of hotel rooms at the Omni Autin Hotel Downtown. So we reached out to three amazing nearby hotels—with the help of these new friends, we’ve lined up exclusive NamesCon attendee rates at these awesome places.
The Driskill Hotel
This iconic and historic 6th Street institution offers everying Texas-sized: hospitality, amenities, and friendliness. The oldest operating hotel in Austin, the Driskill was built in 1886 by a cattle baron. This luxurious hotel takes up the block across the street from the Omni. (If you’re a fan of alternative rock, the Concrete Blonde song “Ghost of a Texas Ladies’ man” is about the Driskill.)
Chic and contemporary, with a unique and playful backyard-stylerooftop bar and lounge. This place also lets you borrow a pair of cowboy boots for the day—we wonder how many we’ll see in the Exhibition hall! Aloft is one short block from the Omni: just a few minutes’ walk.
We suggest booking your hotel as soon as you register for NamesCon Global 2020. (And registration is still 30% off!) We want you all to be really close to all the action—and we don’t want you paying full price for a hotel, either!
As the name suggests, the Proper goes for casual luxury, creative energy, and soulful design. This is Austin’s newest luxury lifestyle hotel. Boasting a rooftop pool with sundeck and cabanas, a rejuvenating spa, and amazing dining and bar options. Little touches by local artists complete the scene. Located by Lady Bird Lake, the Proper is a five-minute taxi or rideshare from the Omni, or a 20-minute walk.
Just in Case…
However, if the Driskill and Aloft fill up, we have a few other suggestions up our sleeve:
The Westin Austin Downtown features the tallest rooftop pool and lounge in Austin, but you’ll be too busy exploring the bustling 6th Street neighborhood. The Omni is just a five-minute walk away. Rooms go for around $229/night.
The Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin is across the street from the main NamesCon action. It’s a historic building: one of Austin’s first high-rises. Rooms go for around $175 including breakfast.
For that higher-end experience, the W Hotel Austin delivers. Spa and pool, this place is around $350/night. This swanky spot is a 10-minute walk from the NamesCon action.
We look forward to seeing you in Austin, January 29-February 1, for NamesCon Global 2020. Just make sure to grab a room close to the action!
