Great stay

Very modern hotel had a wonderful experience. If you expect spectacular kind service, ask for Nicole at the front desk! Also Megan at the pool bar was very personable and skilled. And Larrry was a fantastic valet ????????????????????

The South Congress Hotel is without a doubt the coolest hotel I have ever been to, perfectly located in the thick of it, on Congress. From the minute you walk in, service is incredible – literally everyone who worked there gave off v positive vibes. I didn’t eat there, but the hotel bar had tons of fun cocktails and the lobby had ample space to spread out and enjoy your drink/people watch.

I stayed in the Monroe Suite, which had a lounge area, wet bar, giant outdoor patio, beautiful bathroom with a freestanding tub, and comfy king bed that allowed all 5’ 2” of me to starfish as soon as I got there. The décor was funky and modern, but not overdone. I was surprised at how quiet it also was, considering all the action nearby. DEFINITELY recommend it, if you have a chance to stay here.

Daughter’s Birthday Staycation - Incredible Experience!
Valentina P

Our family tradition is for each daughter to pick a hotel for an annual staycation in ATX, starting at age 6. (It’s the gift that keeps on giving - especially if you’re the mama!) It’s finally my youngest daughter’s turn, and she wasn’t messing around - South Congress Hotel or Bust! Upon check-in, my littlest one was treated like a queen and welcomed by friendly, smiling faces. After lunch, we stopped by our room and found the most delicious & beyond gorgeous rice crispy treats, EVER waiting for her! Sprinkles of every color, frosting - all on a brass tray with the nicest handwritten birthday card from Jesse (who checked us in). What a thoughtful and unexpected surprise! The bar has been set high, and I know this is a moment she’ll treasure forever. Thank you, Jesse, and all of the friendly, lovely staff at South Congress Hotel - you’ve made this the best birthday ever! (Until we come back next year:)
