On my first visit to Austin, I found the Heywood via Trip Advisor. The glowing reviews are accurate. It's a small place on the east side of town. It's actually just about a mile to downtown, located in a residential neighborhood.
I stayed upstairs in room 3. The room was a good size and very quiet, not facing the street. Out the front of the room is a nice upper-level courtyard. Photos on their site are accurate.
The modern design of the place gave it a very clean, sleek look and made it clear that it wasn't very old. Bathroom had an open shower (and no tub). Bed and linens were comfortable.
Service was friendly and helpful and arrival and departure were simple. I stayed alone there for three nights and felt very comfortable. If headed back to Austin, I would gladly stay here again!
