Hotel Hook ‘Em: Fairmont Austin announces Longhorns sponsorship with lights


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin’s skyline is no stranger to burnt orange and love for its Longhorns. This year Fairmont Austin joins the ranks and says “alright, alright, alright” to burnt orange lights, lights, lights.

112 to be exact. That’s how many windows the hotel chain illuminated on the south side of the building. Over 20 floors create the Texas Longhorns logo.


Well, Fairmont Austin announced its sponsorship of Texas Athletics for the 2019 Texas football season this past Sunday.

The Texas Longhorns posted on Twitter last night:

Fairmont Austin now offers special room packages for all 6 Texas Football home games, including UT swag and much more. Throughout the 2019 season, the hotel says they will host “Pre-Parties” the nights before those games. Each event will be open to the public and will feature special surprises and guest appearances.

It’s unknown how long the Fairmont plans to keep the lights up. If you took photos Sunday or this Monday morning, send them to us through
