I'd been on the road nearly a week for business and traveled to Austin for a weekend getaway with my wife. After staying in a somewhat dumpy place for work, I wanted to stay somewhere new & special, which made Kimber Modern an obvious choice. What we hadn't counted on was the warmth of the space & sweetness of the staff. So many modern structures are cold and unfeeling. Not so with the Kimber. It's a beautiful and inviting hotel with all the small touches one hopes for but rarely gets. Incredible coffee, delicious continental breakfast with loads of fresh fruit, wonderful soaps/shampoos in the bathrooms, in-room speakers with an iPod connection, free WiFi, free wine/cheese/beer during happy hour, a computer & printer in the common room, very comfortable bed, etc. The White Suite is absolutely splendid and the multi-level deck with trees & hammocks is like a grownup treehouse. The staff (including eponymous owner) were very courteous, friendly and helpful. I felt like we've been friends for years. I will stay here again and again on subsequent trips and hope to book the whole place for future television & film productions. Google the NY Times article. Kimber Modern is a genuine gem!
