How to Get There
Amazing hotel and great service. The vibe was great and we so appreciated the complimentary beer upon arrival. THe happy hour was great, but the best part was the vinyl records playing in the lobby in the evening. Keep up the great work. A must when staying in AUstin!!
Our stay began with this greeting along with a cold, local Twisted X beer. Pretty awesome way to begin a vacation. The location is amazing close to the pathway system along the river and Lady Bird lake, downtown Austin and the Rainey Street District. Rainey Street is full of great restaurants and bars with live music. The hotel is modern, very comfortable with great staff. A great place to spend some time in Austin.
We had to spend one night in Austin back in March because we had an Informal Conference scheduled with the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners on Monday morning regarding our complaint against a vet here in Dallas. I bring that up because it our visit was not going to be a happy one (we lost our Ally last year and we have a complaint against the vet). We are IHG members and decided to try the Kimpton. Though we were only booked for a standard room (Deluxe King), when the hotel found out the reason for our visit, they were very generous and upgraded us to a Spa King prior to our arrival! In addition, we found a wonderful card signed by the concierge team and front desk team! Thanks much to Gretta and Don for being so thoughtful!! As for our experience at the hotel... yes, parking is expensive. But, I searched around and based on what I read online, the other hotels we considered would have had expensive parking fees as well. While waiting in line to check in, we were offered a beer (who doesn't love that?).. The room was spacious and clean and modern. And we enjoyed each enjoyed the complimentary wine during happy hour. We had breakfast and thought the food was good. We will definitely be back!
I did not stay in a guest room. However, I attended a fundraiser at the hotel and enjoyed a wonderful meal and service . I also observed the location and design of the interior. The Hotel is in the "Rainey Street District" of Austin, in the southeast cusp of land between Lady Bird Lake, I-35, and Cesar Chavez (1st Street.) Due to the buzz and congestion that always exists in this area, I suggest a ride service . Beware, you need more than one, we could not get a return on Uber to get out). The hotel is modern, sparse but architecturally dramatic. We attended a seated dinner for about 200 and were served baked salmon, salad, and a side of vegetables. All were excellent and the salmon was perfectly prepared .As an experienced cook, I was impressed - almost amazed. The only caveat is that you be prepared for frenetic people traffic, I expect that it may be a bit noisy at night. If you are in for a party, this is certainly a great place to stay.
First of all, the hotel itself was fantastic. It's very well appointed and right next to Rainey street which has loads fun. Had a great rooftop pool, restaurant, lounge and coffee bar. The staff is friendly and very efficient.
