RTX Hotel Helper

Hello, traveler!

So you’re heading to RTX, but don’t know where to stay? We’re here to help! Of course, you can use the Hotels page on the RTX website, but that has only a limited amount of information and doesn’t include all of the nearby hotels. But that’s okay, because they’ve got more important things to do (Like planning an AWESOME convention) than painstakingly trudge through hotel details. So that’s where RT SideQuest comes in! We’re going to go through the trouble of sorting through the details to help you find the best hotel to make your RTX perfect!

Our map below features all of the hotels that are most convenient for RTX-goers. They’re either relatively close to the convention center, on a major bus route, or just in the sweet-spot price range for convention goers.

We’ve listed some of the most important details about each of these hotels, including their address, estimated rates for one and two bed rooms for the weekend of RTX (As reported by the hotel’s booking page during the first week of February. You may find better prices at third-party booking sites.), and additional amenities like free WiFi and breakfast. The red line on the map is Capital Metro’s Airport Flyer bus route, which runs from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) to downtown Austin and back. If you plan on taking the bus, look for a hotel with easy access to this route (Note: We are currently adding markers for all of the stops along this route)

We’re going to be adding features to this over the next few weeks as our back-end tools get updated. Hopefully you’ll be able to sort by price and other features in the future. A few more bus routes that serve the convention center will also be added to the map, along with some hotels and motels farther out of downtown. We’re also going to work to integrate data from a few threads in the RTX 2014 forum into this tool so you can see where other RTXers are staying and who has a room to share!

If you have something you’d like to see become part of the RTX Hotel Helper in the future, please let us know!
