What's the mystique?
Every time we go to Austin, we try to get a room at the San Jose. They're always fully booked or very expensive. I was so exited to get a room for under $200.00 on a Sunday. The lobby, gift shop and bar were warmly lit with candles, when we arrived at 8pm. The bar was open for a glass of Ramsay Cabernet and Fireman's 4 brew, nice. Because of our late arrival, we were upgraded to a grand standard queen room, upstairs, #55, no elevator. Upon entering our suite, we understood why people are drawn to this place. Spotlessly clean, minimalist modern, and details like no other hotel. Cement floors, 32' flat screen TV, kimono robes, and spotless towels. Malin+Goetz shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and hand lotion. Plus, a chunk of handmade San Jose blend soap, and Castile hand wash.
Best of all, the queen bed was very comfortable, and the sheets were ironed, and butter soft.
The snack basket was full of southwestern and local products for sale, and a few unmentionables, just in case you need them! The mini-bar had Modelo beer, and Mexican coke, just to name a few items. Fresh flower and large bottle of Rainwater to drink was classy. Also, in-house room service breakfast, and Jo's coffee and treats from next door are available. Could be noisy here, if there was a party crowd, in house. Location on Congress was great for shopping!
