High-octane Fun at Formula 1

Formula 1 Details

The 2017 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix will be held at Circuit of the Americas in Austin October 20 – 22, 2017. Archer Hotel Austin is a 40-minute drive from the raceway, and we thought it best to offer our guests a quick glimpse into this high-octane event.

A global audience of drivers, musicians and fans alike turns its collective wheels to Austin each October for one of the most electrifying events in town. Locals, families and friends of all ages attend a range of events over two days that, this year, includes a performance by Justin Timberlake on October 21, Stevie Wonder on October 22 and the main event known as “Race Day” on Sunday to culminate the weekend.

Busy days filled with large crowds, loud noises, elevation changes and different vantage points are to be expected. Dress is typically casual, and since the weather in Austin this time of year can be unpredictable, an evening sweater or jacket is a good idea. Packing an additional rain poncho and extra sunscreen is also recommended.

Purchase tickets in advance at the Circuit of the Americas website. Kids ages 2 and under are free, and the three-day general-admission ticket has gained a reputation as one of the best general-admission experiences in motorsports. A limited supply of grandstand tickets remain, as well as tickets to the exclusive Paddock Club.

Guests of Archer Hotel Austin can easily get to Circuit of the Americas by taking Austin’s local ride-booking service, Fasten. Those who are planning to drive themselves will want to look into parking passes well in advance.

Why not make a weekend of it? Enjoy the excitement of the races, then head to Domain NORTHSIDE and the nearby Rock Rose for shopping, eating and entertainment. Archer’s Second Bar + Kitchen offers casual fare and an impressive bar, as well as a late-night menu to calm midnight cravings. Rest easy in our luxe rooms and suites before enjoying a nourishing breakfast, starting at 6:30 AM. You’ll be refreshed after a full, memorable weekend.
