Stop in, at least for a drink in the lounge. Get the parmesan popcorn for snacking. Yum!! Relaxing atmosphere, great service and more history about Austin. Lovely interior as well as the exterior of the building. A must stop during your visit to Austin.

This historic hotel has excellent service from the doorman to the coffee shop manager. They also have a bloody Mary bar, so stop in and take a look around and have a coffee, pastry, or a drink.

My friend who travels a lot, said this was in her top 5 bars in the world. Like being served a drink in your living room if your mansion was built in the 1800's. Oh, and seeing the hotel itself is good too.
