Modern Austin Classic
Phenomenal trip. Lovely staff in an excellent location. They honored a very early check in request and provided a killer upgrade and amenity to make a birthday really special. I was hesitant to book here again after staying just after they opened as there are so many newer Austin properties, but I’m certain this was the perfect choice. Thanks for your hospitality, excellent service, and gorgeous stay.

Great Hotel in the heart of SOCO
Really loved South Congress Hotel. We were able to check in early. The decor is "Wes Anderson" style, lots of wood and leather, funky and eclectic. Service was great as well. The staff was super nice and helpful. Will stay here again!

This hotel is very clean, as a new hotel should be. The decoration is very nice. The restaurants and coffee shop are excellent. I did not have a chance to check out the pool or use the fitness center.

Watch out for the Parking!
The hotel, the accommodations and the area are great. The only thing that was disappointing was the self-parking was $50! $16 more than valet. When I called to inquire after I left, the lady indicated that I was paying hourly until a certain point in which it was $34. It would have been nice if this was indicated somewhere online or at the time of check in.

Very Good 8.0
Overall good hotel. Making bar/lobby area. Location is fantastic. Could do with toothpaste and mouthwash in case you forgot yours (which I did). Bedding was not the most plush. But not awful.

My go-to hotel in Austin
This was my second stay because I enjoyed my first stay so much. I like everything about this hotel- its style, interior design, location, service and terrific array of dining options with lots of great spaces to sit and do work or have meetings.
