The live morning broadcasts at Four Seasons have been a tradition for 17 years, raising more than $165,000 for the Seton Shivers Cancer Center. As in years past, all of the proceeds from the $10 per person entry fee (ages 3 and up) will be donated to Seton, with guests receiving a breakfast taco and unlimited coffee as part of admission.
Limited self parking is available to event attendees in the Hotel garage on a first-come, first-serve basis at a discounted rate of $5 per car. Due to the early hour, street parking is also typically readily available.
For those visiting from out of town, Four Seasons Hotel Austin still has limited availability during the music portion of South-by-Southwest. To inquire about rates and availability, please call (512) 685-8100 or search online.
