S Congress COVID 19 in 2020
This is a great property and location there are easy multiple restaurants across the street. COVID19 sucks the vibe at this hotel which is usually flourishing with people is dead. Pool area, The owner needs to get in the pool and look at the following from this level, the pool is starting to show its age, rusting trash cans, dirty pool furniture and the tile around the pool seemed a bit nasty, needs a deep clean. 301room great hotel room above the pool large room, What I do not understand is that an extra suite room that you pay for does not have a desk, working on a computer on a coffee desk hurst my back posture !

Weekend In Austin
If your priorities are hip modernist designs with cool people in a trendy area, then this is your place. If you're looking for practicality in a hotel stay, this place may NOT be for you. Check-in service was welcoming, as with the rest of the staff (front desk, valet, etc.). Was amazed the music noise in the lobby during Sat. night's DJ session did not travel to the room. Bed was comfortable. Clean modern design in the rooms, but not very practical if you value efficiency. Overall, an interestingly-enough boutique hotel to stay at if you're in the area.

Modern Austin Classic
Phenomenal trip. Lovely staff in an excellent location. They honored a very early check in request and provided a killer upgrade and amenity to make a birthday really special. I was hesitant to book here again after staying just after they opened as there are so many newer Austin properties, but I’m certain this was the perfect choice. Thanks for your hospitality, excellent service, and gorgeous stay.

Great Hotel in the heart of SOCO
Really loved South Congress Hotel. We were able to check in early. The decor is "Wes Anderson" style, lots of wood and leather, funky and eclectic. Service was great as well. The staff was super nice and helpful. Will stay here again!

This hotel is very clean, as a new hotel should be. The decoration is very nice. The restaurants and coffee shop are excellent. I did not have a chance to check out the pool or use the fitness center.

Watch out for the Parking!
The hotel, the accommodations and the area are great. The only thing that was disappointing was the self-parking was $50! $16 more than valet. When I called to inquire after I left, the lady indicated that I was paying hourly until a certain point in which it was $34. It would have been nice if this was indicated somewhere online or at the time of check in.
