Our Texas State Capitol is considered a National Historic Landmark. When it was built in 1885, it was the seventh largest building in the world. Now, it’s the second largest Capitol, only to D.C., in the United States. Filled to the brim with history, magnificent architecture, and gorgeous elements to marvel at, the Texas Capitol is our city’s precious gem.
Our hotels near the Texas Capitol are only a 15-minute walk on-foot away, unless you get distracted by all the many fun things to do and see on Congress Ave.
