Perched on the banks of Lady Bird Lake, the Four Seasons has long been regarded as one of Austin’s treasures. Recently, the cherished hotel got a $17 million makeover, and we have a peek at the unveiling. The two-year, multi-phase enhancement has already revitalized the hotel’s spa and fitness center, entry, and meeting spaces; all guestrooms are expected to be complete in September. The goal for the redesign was a homey feel reminiscent of the Hill Country, with a firm Longhorn twist.
Austin nabs new lodging and dining options this month with the dual-branded Aloft Austin Downtown and Element Austin Downtown officially opening its doors. The hotel (two unique concepts under one roof) brings with it a restaurant, Caroline; open-concept bar, Upstairs at Caroline; and the Coffeehouse at Caroline. Aloft Austin Downtown offers a tech-forward, modern experience, while the Element Austin Downtown appeals to guests looking for more of a zen vibe.
Austin is a place of constant entertainment, great cuisine, and good music every day of the week. With so much going on, it can be hard to be intentional about taking time with your friends for a true getaway. For the ultimate girlfriend weekend, I researched some of the best girly accommodations, activities, drinks, and pampering just for you and your bestie squad. We started our weekend by checking into the modern new addition to Domain Northside, the Archer Hotel Austin.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
