If you always wanted the feeling of living in a tree house but with modern accouterments and comforts, the Kimber Moden Hotel is as good as it gets.
This was our first visit to Austin and we weren't sure where to stay but went for the SoCa area for something other than the downtown high rise hotel experience. We were very happy with the choice in large part due to the Kimber Modern. The hotel is in a quiet location in SoCa yet within easy walking distance to the area's restaurants, clubs and shops.
Every room is unique at the hotel. We had the Red Suite which was very comfortable and quiet. We appreciated the big separate shower and tub and colorful furnishings. It's right next to the common room where a free continental breakfast is served in the morning and free beer/wines and snacks available in the early evening along with the other beverages available 24/7. Loved having filtered water available with full bottles in the room.
It was very relaxing sitting on the deck amongst the large tree branches and water fountain for meals or breaks (or taking a brief snooze in one of the hammocks).
The managers are very friendly and personally greet you upon your arrival. We enjoyed the hotel's seamless keyless entry system - no need to wait in line to go through a check in process. The managers offer great tips about the area and see if you might need anything not otherwise offerered by the hotel.
There is free covered parking at the hotel but there are not enough spaces for a car for each room - first come first served. There is free parking on the street in front of the hotel but may not be as appealing to those who are particular about parking their cars on the street. There is no elevator at the hotel so anyone with mobility challenges will need to take into account the climb up the 10 + stairs to the rooms from ground level.
We will definitely stay at Kimber Modern for our next visit to Austin!
