We have secured a limited number of rooms at our host hotel, Downright Austin (formerly The Sheraton at the Capitol) for $249 a night (plus 17% tax) and that rate is available for Friday and Saturday nights, March 28 and 29th, 2025.


Each room booked through the Galaxy Whisky Gala Room Block link receives an exclusive Galaxy Goody Bag with some nice surprises just for our hotel guests.


Staying at the hotel allows you to have the full Galaxy Whisky Gala experience without the hassle of parking downtown or driving home afterwards! And staying at the hotel makes it easier than ever to join the afterparty on the Cigar Patio after the event!


Even if you live in the Austin area, consider having a small staycation which includes a stay at Downright Austin and the Galaxy Whisky Gala!
