The Closest SXSW Hotel Is Now 2.5 Miles Away

See here. It seems like just last week we were still measuring by blocks. Oh yeah, we were. You better register, son.

For those of you who still hope to walk the entire festival and not rely on public transporation (which is actually pretty good, from an outsider’s point of view), don’t give up hope! Looks like there’s some options on Craigslist.

Maybe some Austin locals could provide tips in the comments.

  • staying at a hotel a few miles north of downtown actually isn’t a bad deal, it’s way cheaper ($60/night) and you just drive into downtown and park once-a-day.
