Very unique, hip and boutiquish place. Minimalist in design, rooms have polished concrete floors, modest appointments, and smallish but sufficient space. Clean and comfortable. Central among the rooms is an outdoor area with tables, heaters/fire pit, and small outdoor pool. In the evening fires are lit (or heaters) and drinks are served until midnight (i.e., if you're an early to bed and/or light sleeper, request a room away from the courtyard). After the last couple hundred typical hotel rooms I quite enjoyed this change of pace, and it's very consistent with the "keep Austin weird" (or maybe just unique) philosophy.
The hotel was very nice and the rooms are modern and clean. The attached club at the hotel was extremely loud upon entry, but not noticeable from our room.
The rooms are as pictured, maybe a little smaller than expected but very good overall.
We normally stay at the Omni down the street, which was booked up this time. Both are pet friendly, which drives our choice. Overall the hotel is clean, comfortable and acceptable. Not luxury accommodations by any means, but adequate for the price. We think for same price (or slightly less) the Omni offers a nicer experience and more modern ambiance. But this place will do.
This eclectic neighborhood is full of eateries and clubs, but local art is the main theme of South Austin. Fire-dancing and circus acts come alive in the Enchanted Forest, a multi-acre outdoor art, music, and performance art space in South Austin. Visit the Mexican Flea Market on weekends or explore the Cathedral of Junk, a 3-story-high art installation made up of scrap metal and junk.
