South Congress Hotel Austin SoCo
Reviewed 2 days ago

Newly designed hotel in a the heart of the soco area of Austin - South Congress Hotel is the place to be at happy hour and beyond. Each room displays a unique minimalist design with eclectic fixtures - defining the area of Austin. Service is relaxed but offered throughout the property. Poolside breakfast was served via room service and our favorite part of the stay.

Stylish, convenient location. Very nice comfortable rooms

The in room light fixtures were attractive to look at but were not practical. I had to use the flashlight app to find the thermostat in the room with all of the lights on. Thermostat was locked at 86 degrees for cooling while the outside air temperature was over 90. Staff was very responsive and immediately sent an engineer to unlock it so we could adjust the room temperature.
Rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. Location is excellent for access to the south Congress popular bars and restaurants. We shall return.

Great location, hotel, and food

The rooms are very cool (retro-hip style) and the restaurant as well as in room omlette were both totally top notch. 5 star experience. This is on South Congress which is a very fun part of Austin as well.

Great Experience all the way around.

Higher end priced hotel but worth it. Great location and perfectly wonderful staff. Big spaces in the lobby to work with a cocktail or coffee. Restaurants were delicious and a few choices. We love Austin and especially staying on Congress St. We will be back.
My only question was why there is a window in the shower that overlooks the bed?? Nothing to hide if you are staying with someone. ( smile)

Excellent

This was our 4th stay at South Congress Hotel since it opened in 2016. Excellent location and great service. Walkable to everything you need with better atmosphere than the typical brand-name hotels scattered across downtown.
