Accommodation – 2017 US Grand Prix in Austin

Filed in US F1 Travel Guide by on 0 Comments

The best budget, mid-range and luxury accommodation in Austin for the United States Formula 1 Grand Prix. The next race is held on October 20-22, 2017.

Austin is a great place to visit any time of the year and due to the massive popularity of the SXSW Festival each spring, the city has plenty of accommodation at all price ranges. Hotels, motels and apartments for rent are scattered throughout the city. There is some accommodation close to the Circuit of the Americas, which is just outside of Austin, but unless you have a car, we recommended staying in downtown Austin, where public transportation is more widely available and the off-track atmosphere is better. In addition to traditional hotel options, Airbnb is popular in Austin, though the local authorities are trying to crack down on the service. As always, you will encounter higher rates on Grand Prix weekend.
