The hotel is very cool with a great bar scene. However, my room is not comfortable. There is no reading chair, so the only place to sit is on the bed. There is a desk with a leather bench, which is too short for me and waaaay too short for a guy. The plugs are under the desk

We purposefully chose this hotel for their unique vibe, location and fun queen bunk bed suites for our college roommate reunion. We thought the room would be
perfect since we all stayed in bunk beds back in college.

PROS: The bathroom was great and the beds were a dream to slee

I was booked in this hotel for business and must say that it is probably my new favorite hotel. At first I wasn't sure what to think, because I am so used to typical hotels and this one is anything but that.
Walking in, there is no usual front desk. Instead, the employees are dr

Perfect addition to South Congress. I was afraid this hotel was going to overwhelm Congress Ave, but it fits in perfectly. Great Austin vibe! From the lobby, to the restaurants, to the lovely tea/coffee shop in the courtyard - they did an amazing job. Can't wait to go back again!

Top notch service at this well located hotel. Very modern, well appointed hotel with truly exceptional service. Loved the location in the middle of the South Congress scene. The Lime scooters out front were a fun way to zip to the river.

Do you have parking on site and is there any extra charge? Thanks
Hi Laura A, South Congress Hotel does have onsite parking. Overnight is $29 for both self-parking and valet, so I highly recommend our fantastic valet service. The team is amazing, You are able to retrieve your car via text from anywhere on property to eliminate a potential wait at the valet stand.

Planning to stay here for a bachelorette party ..Is this hotel close enough to 6th street to go out there at night ? I have been told by numerous people to stay in the area of 6th but really like this hotel and have also read on here it's a good area to be .
Uber no longer operates in Austin. The hotel has a shuttle but it will only drop you off, they don't pick up. Taxis are easy. I would not recommend it for a bachelorette party, the rooms aren't very sound proofed. We were just opening birthday cards at 10 pm, chatting and laughing when they sent someone (one person) to our room saying there was a noise complaint. Are you in the bunk rooms? There's not a curtain around the shower so it's kind of awkward taking a shower while others getting ready. The pool's great and cafe NoSe is lovely and fun. The management staff really disrespected me in their response to my similar, earlier comments, and never contacted me to discuss my concerns as I requested. They also misrepresented our time by suggesting that their staff planned our outings which was untrue, I planned it all except the rides, which they helped with. I would stay on South Congress, fun shops and restaurants, close to bike paths and paddle boarding. Check out two stepping at the Broken Spoke, so much fun! Austin is a wonderful place, you will have a great time!!

"I don't know if there are quieter rooms but I would ask!"
"Get a room with South Congress view to experience vibe and energy of the SOCO area"
"Get a room on the second floor in the back. No view but this area isn't known for that and it's convenient to the pool area"
"The Heights room was very quiet"
"If a quiet stay is important to you, ask about staying on the top floor."
