The hotel lobby is very pretty. Cafe No Se is delicious. Naturally I had high hopes about the pool and the rooms. The pool was just a standard pool, nothing really special about it. The bar was great. The room was decorated nicely. I was surprised with the "closet" situation. It was a cheapy drawer type thing with a couple tiny hangers but we made do. All of these things were more just "Hmmm" experiences but nothing that would have made me not want to stay here again. That is, until it was time to go to sleep. Our room did not cool down so my boyfriend and I were sweating all night. We were moved to a different room the following day but unfortunately had the same issues. Our friends we were with had a room with no A/C problems so we knew we were just the unfortunate chosen ones. The experience I had does not make me want to stay here again, at least in the summer.

Such an awesome hotel. The staff is amazing and they made us feel at home. All the restaurants on site have awesome food. Manana is the cutest coffee shop and the best place to start your morning. The hotel is pet friendly and even brought up a dog bed and two bowls for our pup.

Stayed in late July and enjoyed all aspects of the hotel. Great location, fun lobby bar, nice pool, great room. Very cool vibe and seems to attract some locals as well. Ideal to walk up and down Congress and e-bikes are provided for free use.

Took a quick weekend getaway with a best friend and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The pool, the room, sleep quality, cleanliness, and service. Everyone was extremely friendly and the restaurants within the hotel are top notch. Everything is so aesthetically stunning, well designed and curated. I cannot wait to stay here again, highly recommend. Also, you cannot beat the walkable around the area to all the best shops and restaurants in Austin!

This hotel made me want to just have a staycation. It was so beautiful and everyone was very sweet. The food and drinks at Mae Dae were sooo delicious! The highlight was Mañana the coffee shop tucked away in the back of the hotel. Not a coffee drinker? Try the Golden Milk steamed or cold with one of the delicious pastries made by the pastry chef. You cannot go wrong!

Excellent hotel and especially the staff. John Snow at the front desk was one of the most professional hotel employees we have ever dealt with. He was professional, knowledgeable, courteous and accommodating. He was a main reason our stay was so enjoyable. Rooms were clean and bed was very comfortable. A great experience!
