Cooler temperatures are coming, and travelers who stay at Valencia Hotel Groups’ urban retreats can cozy up around a firepit or warm up around a fireplace as they enjoy the fall weather.

Whether you’re headed to Irving, College Station, Austin, Lubbock, San Antonio or San Jose, you’ll find a place to get comfortable beneath the stars. Toast marshmallows and make s’mores or just warm your toes in the beautifully landscaped courtyards at any of Valencia’s unique properties.

Texican Court

Irving, Texas

Relax beneath the big Texas sky at the Texican Court, which re-defines the term boutique lodging. The hotel is located across from the Toyota Music Factory in the Irving Entertainment District and makes a one-of-a-kind destination for guests looking for a home base where the outdoor amenities are as important as the rooms.

Cavalry Court

College Station, Texas

Cavalry Court

The Hotel Valencia Cavalry Court is located near Texas A&M University.

Life is good in Aggieland, and relaxed luxury and modern amenities await at the Cavalry Court. With a location that’s close to Texas A&M University and near Easterwood Airport, the property provides 4 acres of outdoor fun, including a swimming pool, lawn games and courtyards. Plus, you can catch live music from the comfort of your rocking chair every weekend at the on-site Canteen Restaurant & Bar.

Lone Star Court

Austin, Texas

Lone Star Court

This fall, sip a signature cocktail at Valencia’s Lone Star Court in North Austin.

For a true piece of Americana, all roads lead to Austin. Kick off your boots, sip the signature cocktail, called “The Chill Cowboy,” take a dip in the pool, or just soak in the beautifully landscaped courtyard at the Lone Star Court.

Cotton Court

Lubbock, Texas

Valencia

Guests can gather around the outdoor firepit at Valencia’s Cotton Court in Lubbock.

Welcome to a city-inspired refuge for the modern traveler, where the décor is inspired by the region’s rich history in the cotton industry. Rooms at the Cotton Court, the newest hotel in the collection, open onto sweeping porches with Acapulco rocking chairs, and fire pits sizzle at the center of the expansive courtyard.
