Our stay was very relaxing in the master suite. The food was so delicious and carefully prepared. As foodies ourselves, we could not stop raving about it and looked forward to the next breakfast. It's always nice to have someone else cook for you, but it's especially nice when it's from an amazing chef, served in a historic dining room.... More

Extremely uptight and certainly no southern charm in the humans, but high end feel in the atmosphere. If you're used to being pampered this is not the place for you. Children not allowed, nor those who want to... More

We stayed in The Loft at Gateway for two nights- couldn't have been more pleased. The property and amenities were outstanding: a pool, comfy beds, private rooms, delicious food, and three friendly dogs. Blaise and Bess gave us expert local recommendations and we couldn't wait to report back on our adventures around town. They were accommodating in every way, even

Wow! What an amazing place to stay, this place was the perfect relaxation spot on our short 4 day Austin visit. Bess and Blaise are the most wonderful hosts and accommodated our every need! After 23 hours in the air this is the place you want to arrive at! Superb rooms and a great location! Thank you for everything!
