We had a wonderful experience at the Kimpton. We had checked out of the Line before booking here — long story for this review, but skip the Line and stay at the Kimpton instead. From the moment we arrived, service was outstanding. Jack at the front desk knew we were in a rush to get to dinner and he moved us efficiently through the check-in, helped us get our many bags to the room, and gave us his card. Valet was also helpful and quick. The room was very comfortable and quiet. We stayed with our dog and the room was large and enjoyable for him. Staff was lovely in every interaction. The location is great and the complimentary morning coffee is excellent. (We also had brunch at Geraldine’s and it was delicious.) I strongly recommend the Kimpton for its excellent service and wonderful accommodations.

Hotel's Favorite
Excellent hotel with great customer service and nice touches. Check-in Minimal wait time for check-in offered free beer and water which was an excellent touch. Upgraded me for free due to being an IHG Spire member. Room Rooms are excellent here. Rooms are clean, as expected, beds are super comfortable and room furniture is top notch. No complaints here Pool Area During this time, the pool was at limited capacity. The area in previous years was always a party. This was during covid, so the pool was basically empty when I went but still nice. There was some construction equipment for painting or window washing but it did not bother me. Happy Hour There's a free happy hour daily! This is one reason I love going to Kimpton hotels. Free happy hour daily which is always a good time and definitely a nice touch. Location You're right on Rainey Street. Now that I'm in my 30s dirty 6th is no longer my thing. The more chill vibe on Rainey Street is perfect for my tastes. Lots of cool dive bars and restaurants as soon as you walk out the door. If you're here for a conference, the convention center is a 10 minute walk easily. The rest of downtown is also easily accessible. Cons Price, this hotel is generally more expensive than most of the other downtown hotels. If you take advantage of the amenities and location, it's probably worth it. Also, if you're trying to work from home during the week (I was) there are limited areas to do so. All of the common areas in the hotel are playing music that can be heard so it's not a great place to take business calls unless you're doing so from your own room. The business center was also closed due to Covid-19 when I was there so maybe this has changed. Should you stay here? Yes! This hotel is normally pricier than some other downtown hotels. I have stayed in a few other hotels downtown and this one always takes the cake. The staff here does an amazing job and even if it's a little bit more expensive, if you want great location and plan to go out on Rainey Street and make use of the pool and happy hour, you definitely won't regret it. If you're a business traveler and plan on only sleeping at night and maybe driving to another part of the city without taking advantage of the amenities, it's probably not worth the premium.

Shoutout to Jack and the team for making our visit memorable! Super friendly service checking in, the gentleman who checked us in (I wish I remembered his name) was very welcoming and was kind enough to put us in a Lakeview room! The room was nicely decorated and the wood accents in the bathroom gave off a premium feel. I wish self-parking was an option but the valet came in handy on a rainy night. Centrally located and just steps away from Rainey Street, the Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt is a great option for those visiting Austin!

I have always been a fan of Kimpton hotels. They are each individual with a special flair. This was so true with the Van Zandt. Friendly staff. Great location, Great Food, and a social atmosphere. I remain a fan of Kimpton and now will add the Van Zandt to the list...oh yes, the amazing record player in the lobby playing the best music!!
