Hotel near the University of Texas Austin football stadium

One of the biggest colleges in the country, the University of Texas at Austin has a big personality to match, not to mention a pretty big-time football team — perhaps you've heard of a little group called the Longhorns? At the Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt, we're near all the collegiate-cool action, whether you're here to take in a game at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium or perhaps a more academic pursuit like visiting the LBJ Presidential Library. Other can't-miss spots on campus include the beautiful Blanton Museum of Art, with everything from ancient Greek pottery to contemporary Latin American pieces, and the UT Tower, with its 360-degree views of the Austin skyline. Hook 'em Horns!

Geraldine's table food

Pre- and Post-Game Sustenance

Sure, you may not be snapping the ball or kicking any field goals, but that doesn't mean you don't need to fuel before the big game. Huddle up at Geraldine's with fellow fans and enjoy specialties like short rib quesadillas, sourdough waffles, and brioche French toast with fruit and candied pecans. Don't forget to grab a blueberry muffin for a halftime snack. When you return, there's live music waiting, plus a sizable selection of beer, wine, and creative cocktails to celebrate your victory (or drown your sorrows).

Getting There

Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt is about 2.5 miles from the University of Texas at Austin campus. If you're driving, parking is available. Without wheels of your own? Catch a taxi or use a ride-share service. There's also a public transportation option with the Capital Metro Airport Flyer (100) making a stop at UT Austin.
