Big Update on Future Downtown Austin Hotels

The proposed Manchester Texas Hotel in Austin

San Diego-based resort developers, Manchester Financial Group, have committed to the construction of a $350 million convention hotel to be located right in the middle of downtown Austin next to the convention center and popular bar and business districts.

The 30-story building would house two high-end hotels running under the same operator, with an estimated 1,100 rooms available. The hotel operator has yet to be announced, but hoteliers such as Hyatt, Hilton, and Starwood have expressed interest.  This is welcome news for US F1 supporters who are currently facing a pretty big deficit in the number of rooms available in the Austin area.

This news comes right after the city of Austin green-lit fee waivers for an existing development of a downtown convention hotel being built by White Lodging, a hotel development firm with a large presence in Austin already. With that hotel having a proposed 1,003 rooms available, that adds a much needed 2,103 rooms to the Downtown Austin hotel area.

While there are still plenty of talks needed between the City of Austin and Manchester Financial, the developer appears ready to go. Construction could begin in around a year, and take up to 30 months to construct.

With White Lodging’s convention hotel looking to be up and running by late 2013, we’re looking at an exciting time for lodging in Austin!
