Austin May 16-18

In Houston for work May 13-23 with the weekend off. Thinking of taking a quick trip out to Austin.

Many/most hotels are sold out and the others have very high rates. A Google search doesn't tell me what's going on.

Anyone in Austin know what's happening the weekend of May 16-18?

Thanks!

Aka "The University" by graduates.

OP, did a quick search and the rates aren't that far off from a regular summer weekend. Austin on the weekends is always going to be expensive, so my suggestion would be to try a suburb or two. Round Rock, etc.
