Just three excuses to acquaint yourself with South Congress Hotel, an attractive new 83-room option for your next overnight stay in Austin, booking right now and opening September 15. (Take a look.)
And here’s how it’ll attend to your most vital of needs.
The rooms and suites are sporting custom furniture and floor-to-ceiling windows, plus minibars stocked with local hooch. That’s a nice touch. They’ve also got comfortable beds to accommodate your horizontal time.
You’ve got three restaurants to work with here. Central Standard, an American spot with a raw bar, wine cellar and wraparound patio; Café No Se, a casual all-day hangout; and Otoko, Paul Qui’s tiny 12-seater that’s serving Japanese delights. And for liquid snacks, there’s Mañana, the coffee shop and juice bar.
The rooftop pool is a good place to start. Grab a drink from the bar, claim a lounge chair, boost your vitamin D levels, take in the views and just generally enjoy yourself.
Technically you can also swim.
