For being an expensive hotel, this place is cheaply renovated. The street noise is so loud because of lack of insulation, that it was impossible to sleep. We were supposed to stay two nights and checked out the morning after the first and went to another hotel. The hotel is obviously a very old building that they remolded, but did so cheaply. Mostly exposed concrete, hard creaky floors, no noise protection, etc. This hotel has good ratings only because of its location. As far as the actual hotel goes, it is definitely not worth the price per night that they charge.

Most wonderful hotel we’ve stayed at in forever. The room was clean, fresh, modern, and unique. Plenty of space for our family. The pool was perfect spot to hang mid-afternoon, and while there wasn’t a ton of room for my daughter to splash around, all the guests were kind and friendly. Pool bar service was wonderful! We’ll definitely be trying some of the dining options on-site next time!

Had an article of clothing taken from my room (accidentally) by housekeeping while staying there. As soon as I realized it was missing, I informed the front desk as we were leaving the next day. I was told there was 'nothing they could do' and we'd have to wait until the laundry team came in the next day. Ok, that's fine, as long as I get it back no big deal. HOWEVER. Upon returning home I repeatedly had to make contact and leave messages about getting my piece of clothing returned to me. Finally made contact and was then asked for my credit card number to PAY for my TAKEN article of clothing to be returned to me. Excuse me??. I explained the situation to the 'head of security', but was told it was against their policy to pay for it? Huh? In shock, I gave the person my CC number, but asked to be told the charge before they printed the label out. Of course, I was not informed of the charge, and was simply charged over $30 to have the clothes that were TAKEN FROM MY ROOM returned to me... I am not an unreasonable person, but this is utterly unacceptable for ANY hotel, let alone a hotel attempting to be a 'luxury' boutique hotel. DO BETTER south congress hotel! Travelers save yourself the trouble of staying here, there are so many better hotels in Austin.

I loved everything about the aesthetic of my stay at the hotel. The room was to die for, the hotel bar and coffee at manana were my frequents of the trip and it was the most dog friendly which we loved. Possibly my only complaint would be that almost any time I called the front desk in need of something, it either took a very very long time to get there or never came at all. Which was a bit disappointing.

We booked the Monroe Suite and had an amazing experience. Staff, service, rooms, check-in and check out were all super smooth. Web site was a little glitchy booking but I was able to check back a day later. If you have web issues call the hotel or try again later. The staff is awesome.
