My spouse and I booked this hotel just a few hours before we pulled in. This was our first visit to Austin. We based our choice off the yelp and tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. I requested a room away from Congress St. (the Petite Suite). It was a weeknight, but the bar/restaurant was packed when we arrived at 10pm. The noise did not travel and our room was peaceful. This is a refurbished 1930's motor court style motel and each room has a direct entrance from the outdoor path. This was particularly convenient as we were traveling with our dog. Bringing him through the hotel a hotel lobby and elevator can be a task. Also notable was the fact that there was no pet fee - A pleasant surprise for a hotel this nice. The room itself was excellent. Everything was very clean and the layout was nice. Entrance into a sitting area with sofa and chair. The sofa could’ve been used as a twin bed if you removed all of the pillows. Large bathroom with small dresser and walk-in, tiled shower. Amenities were awesome – Malin+Goetz shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. Mini bar was well stocked with mostly local snacks. Bed adjacent to sitting area was comfortable. Desk next to bed was nicely placed in front of the window. Polished concrete floors in living area, penny tile floor in bathroom. The design was very hip and casual. The location seemed very convenient to several bars with bands. I’m not a huge music person, but the area is very hip and eccentric. Lots of food and boutique shopping options within a block or 2. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation. I can’t speak to weather this hotel would be appropriate for children. It was however, very comfortable and welcoming for my spouse, our dog and me.
