If you’re living in a studio or one-bedroom apartment, it can be more convenient for guests to stay in a boutique hotel rather than your apartment home. You'll all have a little more privacy, and you won't have to do as much planning and preparation for their visit. Here are several boutique hotels in Austin your guests will love:
The Driskill provides sophisticated accommodations with vintage appeal in the heart of downtown Austin. They offer both traditional rooms and full suites, so your guests can have plenty of space to spread out and relax. Each room or suite is envisioned as a private residence befitting of royalty, such as The Cattle Baron Suite, which features its own grand dining room with rich hardwood flooring, along with a master bedroom with ornate draperies and antique furniture.
The 24-hour in-room dining and executive concierge service will truly make your guests feel pampered. Dogs under 50 pounds are permitted to stay for an additional fee.
With only 14 suites and studios in the charming and artistic South Congress neighborhood, Hotel Saint Cecilia offers your guests a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Suites contain amenities like large soaking tubs, bamboo-lined outdoor showers, and porches overlooking the hotel grounds. Custom kimono bathrobes are included in each bathroom, and the handmade, organic Hastens beds are incredibly comfortable. In the hotel lobby, there's a retail store where your guests can purchase souvenirs made by local crafters.
If you think your visitors would prefer modern decor and a sleek aesthetic, recommend that they stay at Kimber Modern. This hotel is carefully decorated to promote comfort and relaxation with a soothing color scheme, modern and minimalist furniture, and clean architectural lines. Kimber Modern offers balcony and courtyard rooms as well as suites, which feature amenities like soaking tubs and private decks. In the morning, a continental breakfast featuring organic eggs, bagels, pastries, and fresh fruit is served in the lobby.
Located in the hip East Side neighborhood, Heywood Hotel is surrounded by restaurants and shops, making it a great place for active guests to spend their visit. There are only seven rooms, so the hotel maintains a quiet, relaxed demeanor in the midst of the busy neighborhood. Fireplaces, luxury king size beds, and French press coffee make guests feel pampered and at-ease. Guests can even borrow a bike to explore Austin!
