Stay: Four Seasons Austin, TX
Happy New Year!!! We made it to 2018, and survived another "the world is ending because Niburu is going to wipe us out" conspiracy last year!
Thank goodness because I wouldn't have made it to my 29th birthday in December. LOL. But I also know a lot of people with birthday's in January and February that we need to celebrate AND we have Valentine's Day coming up, so I thought it would be the perfect time to share my Birthday Celebration Stay-cation at the Four Seasons Austin, TX.
This was my first time ever staying at a Four Seasons and I really loved the luxury of it, especially for a special occasion/celebratory night. The rooms are cozy, and fully stocked with bar goodies (think wines, liquors, beers, chocolates & more), L'Occitane soaps (one of my favorite eau de toilette brands), beautiful lake-side and city views, and the service was everything a 5-star hotel should be and more.
The service was actually unlike any hotel I had been to so far. We had the most delicious chocolate cake (seriously!! I want to know if they make it in-house or if they order it from a certain Austin bakery because it was amazing and we devoured it before dinner) and champagne ready in the room for my birthday with a lovely card, and while we were out, had a turn down service that left the room clean and ready for us when we were back.
The hotel has direct access to the Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail, which is perfect for an evening stroll or a early morning run. It's a close walk to nearby food and other venues downtown - Sam and I actually walked over to Rainey Street for some wings and a couple of drinks that night and then walked over to brunch in the morning as well!
The hotel also offers plenty of activities to enjoy during your stay. Sam and I started our night at their ambient lobby lounge with music, couches and a warm fire to sit beside. Their restaurant, Trio, offers complimentary smores lakeside under the stars, which is so fun! And if you're looking for something more romantic, you can enjoy spa services and in-room dining as well - which sounds perfect for a V-DAY escape!
The location and atmosphere of the Four Seasons Austin, TX truly makes it feel like a luxurious escape - perfect for every special occasion - I honestly can't wait for an excuse to go back!
What are your plans for Valentine's Day this year? I'd love to go back and do the whole spa, in-room dining experience! It's always fun trying to get Sam to do a massage with me 🙂
