“Our home away from home in Austin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

We visit Austin frequently to see our grandchildren and have stayed in most of the nice boutique hotels. The Heywood stands out for comfort, style and warmth. It will now be our home away from home in Austin. Beautifully appointed with great attention to detail and much more comfortable than most of the other trendy hotels. The innkeepers are just delightful, too. Jane S and Bob K

Celebrating my 1st Anniversary here on our "hometown vacation" was amazing. The staff all knew we were celebrating, and were more than accommodating and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming into Austin, skip the chains and downtown, skip the over-touristed and pricey other boutique hotels. The Heywood had it all.

Located East of downtown, you get the quiet of the neighborhood, the true local flare of Austin, and it's literally a 5 minute $1 bus ride to the central business district/6th street/4th street, whatever you're looking for.

The beds were amazing, the bath tub was big enough to float in (I'm 5'9), the product in the room were phenomenal, the whole place was gorgeously designed, well-appointed, comfortable, quiet....all the things you want in a hotel. Oh, and cool. So very very cool.

Room Tip: We chose room 6. LOVE.

My husband and I stayed at Heywood for a "staycation" before the birth of our daughter, and the entire experience far exceeded our expectations. From the modern and peaceful decor, to the outstanding service, to the lush bedding and spa-like bathroom, our stay could not have been better. And to top it off, it was reasonably priced. We HIGHLY recommend Heywood for a local staycation such as ours or for out-of-towners looking for a unique boutique hotel and gold old Austin hospitality!

Such a cute hotel! The owner, Kathy, was really helpful and accommodating during our stay. The rooms are cute and really comfortable. It felt like staying at home and was very close to downtown with out having to pay the downtown room rates and valet parking cost. The Heywood will definitely be my home away from home any time I am in Austin (which will be a lot since I am planning my wedding there!). Great place! Definitely check it out.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with any of the rooms! So cute.

We stayed at the Heywood on Dec 29th and 30th in one of the rooms with a private courtyard. We moved to Austin 6 month's ago and figured it would be the perfect excuse to get out and be tourist's in our new city. It was! The owner's have thought of everything and genuinely want to make their guests as happy as can be. The highlight of our stay was definitely the bed. I have never been so comfortable or slept so well. Eating our dinner from a local trailer park eatery (South Way Philly was awesome!) in our private courtyard under the stars was pretty nice too. We also had a great time on a bike ride to Town Lake (actually the Colorado River) on Heywood's (free!) custom bikes. It is pretty close and you can take all side streets to get there. Then we grabbed lunch at a taco trailer near the Heywood per the owner's recommendation. They were so good and cheap! Overall everything was perfect. The amenities, design, and the location, so close to the lake, downtown and the east side can't be beat for the price! It was really the best way possible to end 2011.

I live in Austin but recently I stayed at the Heywood for a stay-cation. Everything about this hotel has been so well thought out: all the amenities including the super soft linens, unique furniture, music players in the room and the great coffee ready each morning (just to name a few). This attention to detail about everything is evident throughout the hotel and the owner was super accommodating and beyond helpful in making recommendations for activities in the area. The room I was in had a sky light in the walk in shower so it literally felt as if you were showering in the trees. I took a few more showers than necessary just to be able to enjoy it! Also, the beds are so comfortable I didn’t want to get up in the mornings! The location in East Austin is perfect; within walking distance of so many great restaurant, bars and other destinations. This hotel is amazing and I can’t wait to stay there again!
