My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights in the loft this past weekend. We both needed to get away and relax, and the Gateway was PERFECT and exactly what we needed. The room was great. I'm scared of heights a little bit but I got used to the stairs up to the bed pretty quickly. Bess and Blaise are the nicest people and Bess made some of the best food we've ever had. The pool area is so relaxing and the location to South Congress is great. It was my first trip to Austin and I have to say I'm smitten with the city. We are going to try to make it a yearly trip and we'll for sure be staying at the Gateway Guesthouse.
