An artisanal boutique hotel and unique Austin experience. Half upcycled bungalow, half courtyard hotel, the Heywood embodies the intangible elements that define Austin: Creative. Easy going. Thoughtful. Cool. Located smack dab in the middle of the vibrant East Austin neighborhood and surrounded by local restaurants, lounges, and shops, this modern boutique hotel is an easy walk to downtown, Sixth Street, the Convention Center, and Lady Bird Lake.

Back to Austin, TX for a second year in a row, and much as we love the city, the Heywood Hotel was a key figure in our decision to return a second year in a row. Truly one of the most unique and special hotel experiences available. This is a beautifully restored boutique hotel, and the design is comfortable and clever. Each room has a unique flair. Great location in the East Austin area, but conveniently close to downtown, shopping at S. Congress, and LOTS of great food & music venues. But what really makes the Heywood stand apart is the exceptional level of service and hospitality. We've stayed in some of the top hotels in the country, but never received the level of care and personal attention we get from this group. Cara, Erin, Jayde and Ian all went the extra mile to make sure we were happy & comfortable, as well as helping with ideas for planning a day/evening out, directions, food options, etc. A few days prior to arrival, we received an email with a questionnaire to complete with a 'wish-list' of items we would like to have. Not only were these requests met, we were given a wonderful welcome basket with t-shirts, snacks, magazines, etc. The rooms are kept immaculately clean and beds are very comfortable. We are talking about a return trip to Austin, and will most definitely be back!

We were there for a family wedding and filled all the rooms. Cara, Erin, Jade and their team were fantastic and couldn't have been more accommodating. The rooms were spotless. Highly recommended. C & S

A wonderful little boutique hotel. Not far from downtown and near (walking distance from) a few spots we wanted to visit. Clean, modern rooms. Nice common areas and amenities. And Ian and Erin were VERY helpful during our pre-registration and check-in and during our stay! We will definitely stay here the next time we visit Austin!

Everything at this boutique hotel was great! From the front desk staff, the room, the amenities, the ambience. I can’t say anything went wrong. Everything I was interested in was within close distance. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Made recommendations for dinner and reservations at Intero Italian for a birthday dinner, which was acknowledged several times during the stay.

The Heywood was truly my home-away-from home for 6 nights! I visited Austin by myself to complete 1 of 4 clinical residencies at a local university, and by the time I left, I was so attached to the property (and my Queen Balcony room specifically) that I became wistful at the idea of leaving! LOCATION: The Heywood is located in the hip, eclectic, lushly green neighborhood of East Cesar Chavez, which is wonderfully devoid of the high-rise buildings (and congestion) you'll find in the city center West of the freeway. East Cesar Chavez is packed with unique, delicious places to eat (La Barbecue, Canje, and Joe's Bakery, just to name a few), and the blocks surrounding the Heywood are suburban and residential, adding to the homey feeling you get while staying here. The Heywood is a 3-minute drive from Whole Foods on 5th street, so you can stock up on breakfast food and snacks for your stay. HOSPITALITY: Will and Erin hosted the property during my stay, and both of them were so welcoming, helpful, accommodating, and offered much-appreciated recommendations for local activities and under-the-radar food spots to check out. I feel that Will and Erin struck just the right balance of professionalism and helpfulness, while allowing me my privacy and solitude. While I didn't run into the housekeepers since I was gone from 8am-5pm, they were thorough and thoughtful. My room was spotlessly clean every day when I got home, down to the ridges of my coffee machine! The Heywood has a kitchenette-type area inside the main building (about 20 feet from my door), where there is filtered hot and cold water on tap, a microwave, and stacks of coffee cups, clean bowls, plates, cutlery, and napkins, among other things. On my first morning, I took a bowl to my room for my yogurt and fruit for breakfast. The housekeepers took notice, and from that point on, placed a new clean bowl and spoon above my mini fridge every day when they came into clean. It is small, thoughtful touches like this that make you feel at home, and I appreciated it so much. CREATURE COMFORTS: I entered my room to find an awesome welcome basket containing various snacks from local vendors, coupons for local businesses, organic energy drinks, chocolate bark, etc. plus a thoughtful handwritten note from the staff welcoming me to Austin. My room was outfitted with a coffee machine, fresh ground coffee and all accoutrements, mini fridge stocked with local beers, a high-end air purifier, and an EXCELLENT and versatile air conditioning unit, which is much appreciated with Austin's weather in June. One unexpected and neat discovery was the white noise machine that Heywood provided; I had never used one before, and it was a total gamechanger for falling asleep fast, and staying asleep! The Heywood also provides each guest their own designated parking spot, free of charge, which is so valuable in the age of giant corporate hotels that charge an arm and a leg for that convenience. The parking spots are just down the stairs from the courtyard, which made coming and going throughout the day a total breeze. Lastly, the Heywood provides bikes to guests, which is such a cool way to explore the local food spots, explore the surrounding residential areas, and take in the beautiful Colorado River that is literally down the street! ROOM INFO: I stayed in the Queen Balcony room, which is on the Northeast side of the property, with its door opening to the outdoor courtyard. It is spacious, thoughtful, and comfortable. It has a long desk area with a window facing out into the courtyard, and since I came to Austin for a clinical residency, it was wonderful to sit here in the evenings and work on my reports as the sun went down. Both this window and the glass door leading to the balcony have blackout blinds, in case you don't want the sun to wake you in the morning. The room has a cute balcony with seating for two, which is set well off the street (so it's not too noisy), and is in a nook over the driveway, so you get the outdoor access without being stared at by passers-by. The balcony was such a peaceful place to spend my morning, drinking coffee as the sun rose, and listening to the grackle birds Austin is known for. The bathroom is sleek and modern, and the shower has a skylight peeking into the massive tree above the room, giving you a little window into nature. If you visit Austin, staying at the Heywood is an absolute must... it is one of those truly unique, one-of-a-kind stays that are so rare to come across. I can't wait for my next stay in October!

Comfortable room stacked with beverages and munchies which was a nice welcome. We were in room number 4 on the 2nd floor. The private patio space was like having another room. The common patio space was also welcoming with cushioned chairs, tables and shade covering. The neighborhood is East Austin and there were plenty of places to eat and drink if you didn’t have a car. We were there for two nights and at the time we were the only guest there in this 7 room boutique hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

I originally stayed 4/2018. I was so charmed by the beautiful design of the rooms, the detail of all the appointments w/in the room and the great care the staff gave. I returned. It was all that and more. The staff offered me expert advice of where to eat and visit. They took the time to engage with me about my interests so what they offered was tailored to my trip goals. After a day of visiting sites I returned to a home away from home. The bedding was perfect. The pillows sigh so embracing. The shower with the skylight was magical. It felt like villa in TX. The room felt perfect in every aspect, color, and texture. The Mexic Arte Museum was a recommendation that will be remembered as the highlight of this trip. And breakfast you ask? Joe's Bakery another recommendations by the staff. So Yum. Let me call it a dinner reminding me of my childhood in NJ. Fast, efficient, and engaging but, absolutely Mexican in each and every detail. Including the most amazing breakfast of Huevos Rancheros. The realz Austin here. So Heywood is where to rest your head, your heart, your time, and when you visit Austin, TX.

Charming boutique hotel in East Austin. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The local coffee was a nice touch and they even provided us with vegan creamer (on request). We enjoyed exploring Austin and took advantage of the complimentary bikes at the Heywood.

The Heywood is a lovely intimate hotel with a personal service from a team that really cares about their customers and is proud of their town. We arrived late afternoon from London and were greeted by Kathy, the owner. She was so thoughtful in attending to our immediate needs - showing us to our room, booking dinner, marking places on a map that open really early for breakfast in case we had jet lag - we did! We spent four nights in a Queen high standard room, which was perfect for a couple. Plenty of hanging and drawer space. Comfy bed and choice of pillows. Decent size bathroom with walk in shower. Some thoughtful goodies in the room for us too. We also had direct access to the outdoor patio, which was a lovely spot to read. The whole place is spotless. And did I mention the free parking. We'd never been to Austin so appreciated the daily suggestions from the team - food, drink, music, walks, shopping, museums. As well as beyond Austin...as we were leaving for our onward trip to Fredericksburg and San Antonio, Kathy emailed some suggested stops along the way! They know how to do above and beyond expectations.
