Three years after it broke ground, the 613-room Austin Marriott Downtown is officially opening March 4 at 304 E. Cesar Chavez St., Austin.

The 31-story hotel started construction in January 2018. It includes 60,000 square feet of meeting space as well as four food and beverage concepts.

Zanzibar is an outdoor rooftop terrace bar and pool seven stories up that has been open since September. Another bar, The Lobbyist, has two stories with a mezzanine that overlooks the lobby.

The hotel features a grocer, Loaf + Vine, with options including grab-and-go options, baked goods, coffee, beer and wine.

Corinne Restaurant is also opening within the hotel. This is the second location for the neighborhood dining and cocktail restaurant after its first opened in Denver in 2017.


The hotel is owned by White Lodging, which operates approximately 90 hotels, including downtown Austin options, such as the J.W. Marriott, Westin, Aloft and Element.
