We stayed in the white room. It was quiet, clean, and spacious. For the cost of the rooms, the "buffet" breakfast is minimal and has lots of room for improvement. Cassie was very cordial and was quick to answer our questions. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

My husband and I just spent four nights in the Yellow room. It was a huge splurge, but we decided to go for it based on the many glowing reviews. We're so glad we did. Here's why: First, the location can't be beat. It is just behind all the action of SOCO, making it easy for us to run back... More

I would imagine that the Kimber Modern would have enough praises without my addition, but I literally just returned from Austin and am still thinking about this urban haven. I surprised my husband with our stay as he assumed that we booked at a "traditional" hotel. As we started to drive down a more residential street, I took some joy... More

Built into a landscape with ancient Plateau live oaks, this well designed hotel is a true find. There are six spacious well lit rooms with beautiful modern bathrooms. It is well organized with a digital key entry and a large social room for healthy breakfast and an open bar Happy hour. The manager is charming and available on 24 hour... More

I, too, love how our property is tucked into the hillside! The amazing Live Oak that was highlighted in the design of the Kimber Modern's courtyard is something man cannot create! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay...and thanks for sharing. -Carrie More

My husband and I recently stayed in the White Suite at the Kimber Modern for three nights. It is probably the best hotel that we have ever stayed in, and we have traveled extensively. This hotel provides just the type of luxury that fits our needs. The location is unbelievable--just a block away from the restaurants, shops, and music on... More

Built around a writhing tree, this indoor/outdoor gem is a shrine to design. We appreciated every detail -- the delicious linens, the shallow bathroom sink, that delightful bunny painting above our bed, the yummy breakfast and community room with wine/beer and perfect selection of snacks, the way you can hear the music coming out of the nearby clubs if you...

We recently had 3 nights in the Kimber Modern in February 2015. The Hotel was absolutely outstanding. From the tasteful and very comfortable room, without high quality bathroom products, a great shower and some of the best coffee I have drunk, to the really good healthily breakfast and complimentary beer, wine and snacks. However, what adds the finishing touch is... More

I recently stayed in the Red Suite with my wife. The grounds were immaculate thanks to a hard working staff. The bedding/sheets were great. The breakfast is simple but fresh. I really enjoyed the common area and the happy hour and wife loved the deep bath tub. It is nestled right off of South Congress so entertainment and good food... More
