My husband and I planned a last minute anniversary trip to Austin and spent 2 nights at the Hotel San Jose. What a great funky, hip little haven. Rooms are modest but purposefully styled - even the mini bar selection and "bottled rain water" fits in with the hip Austin - SOCO vibe. Loved the products in the bathroom - super hipster organic fare. you can even buy a pair of Toms or Haviannas that are in your room. ( My husband joked that the hipster vibe was so pervasive that we were going to wake up in the morning with handlebar mustaches) but its all part of being in SOCO - Can't ask for a better locale. Great restos, shops and bars right near by - literally, Right in the middle of everything. Great patio and night time bar scene. I would have given this 5 stars but the staff was just as other reviewers said - we found them to be aloof and not very welcoming. Like they were too good to be working there. The only exception was the gentleman who checked us out on the morning we left. He was super friendly and actually smiled! But the staff certainly wouldn't deter us from staying there again - in fact we can't wait to return!
