Where to stay
THE FOOD INCUBATION SUMMIT HAS PROUDLY PARTNERED WITH AUSTIN'S PREMIERE BOUTIQUE HOTEL EXPERIENCE: THE GUILD
At this chic location of The Guild in Austin’s hip East Austin neighborhood, you’ll enjoy a comfortable, spacious suite in the heart of the city’s up-and-coming nightlife scene. Walk up the street for brisket at Austin’s internationally acclaimed Franklin Barbecue, or grab a quick coffee or beer at Wright Bros. Brew and Brew. Then relax on the outdoor patio or spin LPs on the in-room record player—or indulge in a little self-care at the building’s gym or outdoor pool. Naturally, you’ll also enjoy the same personalized service, impeccable design and 24/7 concierge you’ll find at every location of The Guild.
For attendees and staff of Food Incubation Summit we are happy to offer discounted nightly rates at Guild East 6th at The Arnold, The Indie and The Corazon.
Our one bedroom suites include one king bed in the master bedroom and a queen size luxury sleeper sofa in the living room. Our one bedroom suites have one large bathroom and the two bedroom suites have two bathrooms.
