The delightfully unique boutique hotel Heywood Hotel on East Cesar Chavez is in an “up and coming area” that at first impression seemed less than desirable. Happily though, when I did venture out and about the locale I discovered perfectly friendly hipster style cafes, craft beer bars, quirky restaurants and great live music. I loved quirky Austin in all its... More

This is an amazing small 7 room hotel. The style is modern and intimate and this does not do it justice to what a pleasant place it it. There are two sitting areas - one inside and one outside. The tone is welcoming and friendly but private. The rooms are beautifully appointed, comfortable and spacious. The bathroom was very sleek... More

The Heywood combines the style of a modern, boutique hotel with all the friendliness of a family run B&B. Kathy and her team could not have been more helpful, offering bikes to those of us with enough energy to loop Lady Bird Lake, towels for our excursion to Hamilton Pool, great advice on places to eat and faultless directions in...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Heywood Hotel on our first visit to Austin. This is a small, boutique place on the East side which suited us just perfectly: close enough to the action and the highway but far enough away to be very quiet and peaceful at the same time. Rainey Street is walking distance as is 6th... More

I had a great experience here. Hotel is modern and charming. Kathy and the team are extraordinarily attentive, helpful and friendly. The neighborhood is also very funky with good bbq, coffee shops, taco shops and bars in walking distance. Will recommend it to others and go back again for sure.

We were looking for a place to stay in Austin that was outside of downtown and more in a neighbourhood. Rather than stay in an AirBnB we found the Heywood Hotel, which is one of the nicest small hotels we've ever stayed in. Even before we arrived, owner Kathy helped me pick a great neighbourhood restaurant for a special night... More

Eclectic converted house in a neighborhood that can only get better. Interesting architecture with that funky friendly Austin vibe. Staff extra-ordinarily helpful. Snacks and coffee complimentary. If you crave unique book it.

We very enthusiastically recommend the Heywood. From the cute design of the property to the style of the rooms to the comfort of the beds to the genuine friendliness of everyone who worked there and made sure we knew all the right places to go, we loved everything. The east neighborhood is the current "it" spot in Austin. We walked... More

I am almost afraid to write a review of the Heywood because it feels like an undiscovered gem, and I'd selfishly like to keep it that way so I can stay there every trip! However, it was fully booked on our last visit to Austin, so the word is clearly out. It has a hipster vibe and is located well... More

The coolest-designed hotel, tirelessly helpful staff who helps curate your experience in Austin, and proximity to some of the best new bars & restaurants in Austin make this place a no-brainer. I will never stay anywhere else in Austin!
