Couldn’t spring for a hotel downtown? The Hilton lobby can be your new de facto crash pad. But shhh, the prime real estate goes quick. Rumor has it they won't even try to kick you out!
The site of the infamous SXSWi “backstroke” competition. Dens is confident in a win this year.

One dead hooker and you think it's the end of the world?! Wish I could stay here this year. Oh well... hotel lobby!!
Get free wifi in the Starbucks of the Hilton lobby.
Need a nice, quiet place to get away from it all? This is definitely it during SXSW!

Have a 48-hour romance with the primary singer-songwriter of a band. Inadvertently get his management mad at him, causing a dis-band and for him to make the decision to move to your hometown after SX.
We might be drunk.
Sneak into the mens room in the lobby. Dry hands with the amazing Dyson Airblade hand dryer! Realize afterwards that there is one in the womens room, too.
Austin’s convention hotel is among the finest that Hilton has to offer. It buzzes during the South by Southwest Festival and for dozens of other conventions and festivals year-round.
Wait until 2:30am and there's bound to be pizza showing up soon...
Sometimes the wifi is bad. Especially during SXSW.
Come on by the our #trendlounge #sxsw 4th floor meeting room 406
Waiting in the cue. Check out the restrooms in the upper level, Pascal ;-)
Don't not walk throught the bar no matter how tired you are. You're sure to run into 5-20 friends on your last cruise through before bed.
Nice hotel. Nice staff. Wifi was really slow but I imagine it's just the result of an entire hotel filled w/an unusually high concentration of people up/downloading high bandwidth tech & music files.
The tip from last year "Sometimes the wifi is bad. Especially during SXSW" is still valid. Long live SXSW!
Keep you're eyes peeled for @saulcolt in the @freshbooks jacket. Ask for a hug, kiss, dirty joke...or all three.
Hit the stairs when you get out of the upstairs panels and you'll be outside in 30 seconds flat, no waiting for slow escalators. Plus stairwells are empty and quiet.
Try the beds. They're great for sleeping.
Find @jwillie and talk social computing and SharePoint.
One of the best hotel to stay while visiting Austin!! Check on-line for deals in their rooms!
ask the concierge for COMP PASSES to Speakeasy
Protip: keep an eye out for bowls of free gummi bears and roasted almonds! #snackattack!
You have to pay to use cardio machines. Utterly ridiculous. It's Austin, not Vegas people.
Have lunch at Moonshine Grill try the lemonade and shrimp corndogs. At night At night take a body shot at Coyote Ugly. Both 2block radius.
If you are here for SXSW, forget sandwiches. Head to the bar and grab some cold duck green tea soba for $10!
Best bar to go to in Austin: Lucky Lounge 209A west 5th street
Quesadillas from room service are awesome
Recharging.... in all senses of the word.
Don't believe the hype.
run naked through the lobby
Tipping is not a city in china! @ least that's what the bellman told me. ;)
Use the wired internet connection in your room, it's free .. the WiFi is $15/day and device dependent .. the hotel restaurants are good, the American Grill is simple and usually empty, gym is ok/free
Ask Matt French how many drinks he spilled last night...
Use the free wifi near the pool/spa and enjoy a great texas mojito
Get a room already!
Walk a few blocks east and get coffee.
Get to know the folks running the driveway, they'll give you rides in the hotel's Suburban ;-)
