A new Sheraton hotel will open this summer in suburban Austin, TX, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide announced last week.

Located 27 miles north of Austin in Georgetown, TX -- where it will anchor the city's new 32-acre "Summit at Rivery Park" entertainment district -- the Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center will have 222 guest rooms and 30,000 square feet of meeting space, including 10 dedicated rooms with eight breakout spaces and a 16,000-square-foot ballroom.

Other amenities will include a heated outdoor pool, a fitness center, access to a nine-mile hiking and biking trail along the San Gabriel River, a club lounge, a lobby café, and a signature restaurant.

The hotel currently is accepting reservations for stays beginning July 29.

"Beginning to accept reservations for our future guests is an exciting milestone in the progress of the hotel," said General Manager Rita Healy. "We are eager to welcome the first guests into the hotel to experience Georgetown's new place to meet."
