Four Seasons Austin, in Texas, offers 294 spacious guest rooms and suites with exceptional views of the lake or Austin cityscape in the heart of downtown Austin, but how can guests get the best deal, offer or discount?
Why Four Seasons Austin?
Austin’s particular brand of cool is evident in every detail of our downtown Hotel, from local art to Texas-inspired spa treatments. Stay for their incredible margaritas and amazing saltwater pool, then stay for lawn games, miles of lakeside trails, and spacious rooms overlooking idyllic Lady Bird Lake.
Using the following tips, we can help you get the best deal at Four Seasons Austin:
1. Free Benefits Are As Good As A Discount
To get the best discount at a Four Seasons hotel with free loyalty style benefits, you need to book with a luxury travel agent like our luxury travel concierge.
Our rates match those on the Four Seasons website, including discounted and special offer rates, but by booking with us, you get extra free benefits, including free breakfast, free room upgrade (subject to availability), a welcome gift, and a $100 resort credit. We offer similar free benefits at over 1,000 other luxury hotels across the world.
2. Book A Special Offer At Four Seasons Austin
The Four Seasons Austin’s own website lists all the special offers currently available at the hotel. You can combine these offers with the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge.
Usually, offers available on the Four Seasons website include their stay longer and third-night free deals which means that you receive a complimentary third night. Advance purchase deals enable you to take advantage of around a 20 percent discount on the room rate.
3. Book Early At Four Seasons Austin
Four Seasons hotels and resorts are so popular that they often sell out, so they don’t need to discount their rooms during the high season. Obviously, Austin is a city so this Four Seasons errs on the side of a business hotel. The high and low season are not arranged quite like a Four Seasons resort. Instead, you may want to look for cheaper rates on weekends and when there are no conferences in town.
4. Join The Four Seasons Loyalty Scheme
This is a trick title! Four Seasons doesn’t reward guests with loyalty points. Most Four Seasons hotel room rates start at $500 – $1000 USD per night, and because there isn’t a Four Seasons loyalty program, you will never be able to book a free stay by racking up and redeeming points, or by collecting points on your credit card and spending them on a Four Seasons hotel stay. It can’t be done.
If you are a premium member of an alternate hotel’s loyalty scheme, you get premium benefits, particularly if you are a regular guest. The only way of getting this kind of special treatment and loyalty benefit at a Four Seasons hotel is by booking with a luxury travel agent like our luxury travel concierge.
5. Change Your Holiday Dates
Where possible, re-arrange your dates and plan to specifically target the Four Seasons hotel you are planning to visit, when it is cheapest and offers the best discounts. Try to avoid Christmas and New Year’s Eve. You will pay so much more during the holidays, and you can rarely take advantage of special offers or deals on these dates. Also when the hotel is full, the check-in team is less likely to find a room in the category above yours to upgrade you to.
6. Be Clever With Your Discounted Rates
It is worth taking the weather into account when choosing when to visit. Winter in Austin is warm compared to the rest of the Northern Hemisphere and summer is very hot averaging over 36°, making spring, fall, and winter the best times to visit this iconic city.
7. Stay One Night & Use The Pool For Two Days
Four Seasons Hotel Austin debuted a new pool in Autumn 2020 making it a really great destination in its own right, whatever the time of year. If you are traveling for leisure, even if you just book your stay for one night, you can use the pool on the afternoon of arrival and the day of departure. The pool area is a really special place to relax making Four Seasons Austin the ideal destination for a short break.
Boasting more than 300 days of sunshine annually and mild fall and winter temperatures, combined with the fact the pool at Four Seasons Hotel Austin is continuously heated to 82°F, inspired designers to treat the new pool area as an all-year playground.
Pool amenities include comfortable, well-spaced lounge chairs, as well as plush daybeds spacious enough for two people; airy cabanas that present a private spot for sunbathing, reading, or an afternoon nap; lush landscaping, which gives the area the feel of a garden oasis; and views of Lady Bird Lake, visible through a custom cedar and stainless steel cable fence.
Perhaps most noteworthy, however, is a “watering hole” of an entirely different variety. Paying homage to Austin’s laidback vibe and renowned food truck scene, the Hotel’s new Trinity Point hospitality space features intimate seating areas, a fire pit, and a beverage trailer serving up an ever-rotating menu of refreshing drinks, ranging from frozen slushes to Austin-inspired cocktails.
8. Stay Shorter
It sounds obvious when you say out loud, but I would prefer three nights at an expensive Four Seasons rather than a week at a cheap budget resort.
9. Use Corporate Promo Codes
There are special corporate promo discount codes, so if you are an employee of a company like Goldman Sachs, Bank Of America, IBM, or the government, you might be able to take advantage of these discounts. These codes are not widely available to the general public, and the discount may not be as good as the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge. We suggest asking for a free quote from our luxury travel concierge so you can compare prices and benefits and get the complete picture before booking.
10. Don’t Book With Your Credit Card Travel Agency
Do you want to be at the front of the queue for your free room upgrade? Book your Four Seasons stay via our luxury travel concierge, and we will put you first in line for your free upgrade. You will be placed in front of guests who book via booking services like American Express Finest Hotels & Resorts.
This is because our travel agency is an official partner of Four Seasons hotels, so room upgrades for clients that we book into Four Seasons hotels are put at the front of the queue! You can still use any credit card as payment when you book with our concierge, so you still get your usual loyalty points and rewards from your credit card when you book with us.
