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.

Stay with F1 Experiences at the 2020 United States Grand Prix

Add accommodation at selected Austin hotels to your package, including daily transfers to and from COTA.

    We made plans to go, but aren’t going to be able to make it, so have made our New Braunfels timesharing available for reasonable cost. https://www.vrbo.com/1145698

  2. Andrew S Tee says:

    Can you please let me know 1. if it’s still available, 2. how much rent for the 3 days ?, and 3. how many bedrooms / how big is the house/apartment ?

  3. The little town of Bastrop southeast of Austin is actually closer and much easier
    to navigate to/from the race. We have had a cancellation at our bed and breakfast downtown there, Pecan Street Inn. Look us up and we’ll make sure y’all get there!
