Austin has a swanky thing going on with its boutique and sometimes quirky hotels. Here are some sweet hotels to check out if you're looking for a little night away from home, or even if you're in town for a day.
Even if you're not staying at the luxurious Hotel San Jose, it's a great place to kick up your feet and grab happy hour. The grounds feel intimate and secluded even though it's located off bustling South Congress Avenue. If you're up for drinks, try the sangria or the Texas rainwater.
The Austin Motel is full of quirky little rooms, a sweet pool and Austin atmosphere -- all for a nice price. It's one of the more pocket-book-friendly hotels on South Congress and the location cannot be beat!
Golfers, spa lovers and Austin hill country enthusiasts will enjoy a stay a the Barton Creek Resort and Spa. My husband and I recently cashed in a voucher for a one night stay, spa treatments and a delicious dinner and we can't wait to go back for another trip!
Mansion at Judges Hill is a treat for the bride and groom looking for an extravagant wedding venue, or even just the dating duo out for a daring meal at one of Austin's fanciest restaurants.
If you weren't looking for the Kimber Modern, you'd probably drive right by it. The architecture of this modern boutique hotel causes it to blend right in with the natural beauty of South Congress Avenue. For a relaxing, private stay at one of Austin's most intimate bed and breakfasts, the Kimber Modern is your hotel of choice.
A night at this romantic, bungalow style boutique hotel is a luxurious experience for even the Austinite taking a stay-cation. The grounds are very private so that only hotel guests can enjoy the serenity.
The famous Driskill Hotel is full of historic appeal. Love the intricate architecture, and the food from the hotel restaurant is in a class of its own. And if a night at the Driskill isn't in the cards, even a drink at the bar feels like a decadent experience.
