I had heard so many good things about the hotel and couldn't wait to book my stay here. This hotel is not only at an amazing location but it was so unique and beautifully designed. Every detail is a feast for senses, I couldn't stop exploring. The room was beautiful, light-filled, and fresh- I had a hard time leaving it to explore the city. The tech in the room was top of the line. The entire hotel smelled amazing too but it was not over the top (I have asthma and can be very sensitive to smells setting it off but Austin Proper did not bother me). I stayed in a room that faced the river and I couldn't get enough of the views. The restaurant was delicious and very accommodating to my dietary needs. The food was different than a lot of other restaurants in Austin. Very refreshing and satisfying without feeling like I needed to go on a run afterward. Great cocktails at the bar too! The staff at the hotel was what put the stay over the top. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. They make you feel special from the moment you walk in and they all seem truly invested in their guest's experience. I will not be staying anywhere else in Austin. I really loved the entire stay.

Just home from a fantastic weekend at the Austin Proper Hotel. I was absolutely wowed from the minute we arrived. The hotel is a delight to the senses. Everywhere I looked, I loved. The property has a great vibe, a touch of Moroccan flare, and a great staff. Shout outs to Trey in valet, Makayla in the just opened Mexican restaurant on the fifth floor, and Quinton in the lobby bar. Extra special shout out to Sam at the front desk. He went above and beyond to assist us more than once, and always had a huge smile on his face. The room was beautiful and cozy. The bed was fantastic. Gorgeous bath with lovely amenities. We had a delicious dinner in The Peacock, and two wonderful and timely room service breakfasts. My only disappoint was the two times we tried to go to Goldie’s, the bar for only hotel guests and residents, it was closed for private events. (One for a baby shower that lasted until mid afternoon, and then another from around 4:30 until 11P, on a Saturday.) I think it’s more of a private event space, and if not being utilized, then hotel guests can escape the lively lobby bar for an intimate drink. We look forward to returning to the Austin Proper Hotel. The location is as good as it gets in Austin. Guests can walk to everything!

We’d been wanting to check this hotel out since it opened, so we did a little staycation and loved every second. As we arrived, Dillon welcomed us and promptly got the car taken care of while Will assisted to the front desk and helped us refresh with water and wet towels. The lobby’s thoughtfully beautiful, and you can tell each design aspect was carefully considered - something that you definitely don’t get at big-brand hotels. Rodrigo took great care of us at check-in and ensured we got a fantastic room that exceeded our expectations. Bathroom and shower are well appointed and feels more like a spa than a hotel room. The rooms are beautiful as well, beds are comfortable, and the electronic light/curtain controls make everything very user friendly (thermostats even show local weather!) Wrap-around windows in the corner room and spacious balcony offered fantastic views of downtown. The Peacock restaurant in the lobby was understandably busy, but we had thankfully made reservations ahead. Another beautiful, intimate space, and Colin’s personality and suggestions for food/drink were spot on. They did a great job of making sure the food offerings and atmosphere set them apart in Austin’s restaurant culture. Goldie’s was also lovely, and offered fantastically crafted cocktails in an upscale, relaxing setting. All around a great stay — can’t wait to make it back and check our La Piscina. Thank you for a fantastic night!

This was my first stay at Proper. After hearing about how amazing the Santa Monica Proper was from my boss, I had to check out the Austin proper being a local here. Walking in, I immediately fell in love with the design. It’s unlike any hotel I’ve been in before. The front desk was extremely helpful and welcoming (specifically Sam at the front desk was very hospital). The rooms were fantastic - VERY comfy beds! Overall, I wish I could live there ☺️. Wonderful stay and definitely recommend!
