Hotel San Jose

$$$ | Part of the Austin scene

This hip bungalow was hotelier Liz Lambert's first project, which was most definitly a sucess because it is often credited with revitalizing the South Congress area. She also has a funky and retro spot popular with the younger set down the street called the Austin Motel. If you are looking for a bit of seclusion and luxury during your trip, her Hotel Saint Cecilia is also nearby.

The Driskill

$$ | Modernized grand dame

While the limestone-and-brick exterior is the same as it always was, the common spaces and rooms have been updated without sacrificing their thoroughly Texan feel. Be sure to check out the cowhide and dark wood filled bar for some nightly live music.

The LINE Austin

On the banks of Lady Bird Lake, this picture perfect hotel is in the heart of the action. Watch the sunset over the water from the rooftop bar P6 for one of the best views of Austin's famous bats.

South Congress Hotel

$$$ | Hip, laid back hotel

Lounge by the pool and in some of the other minimalist chic common spaces, or head out to the bustling South Congress street outside. But there is no need to go anywhere because you have access to Café No Sé and a great lobby bar.

Native Hostel

$ | High-style unhostel

While it may be a hostel, the design is more inline with a hip urban hotel. And with a bar, kitchen, and frequent events, there isn't much reason to leave the building. But when you do, you will enjoy the museum quality murals that cover the building.

Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt

$$$ | Music inspired hotel

It makes sense that this hotel named for country legend Townes Van Zandt has musical themed decor everywhere. Relax and take in the hotel's views of the city and the lake or take a few steps out the door to enjoy Rainey Street's bars and restaurants.

The Carpenter

$$ | Minimal yet cozy

Mighty Union's Austin outpost has minimal concrete and raw wood rooms that push visitors to take advantage of the comon spaces. Venture outside to the pool before heading to the nearby Zilker Park and Barton Springs.

Firehouse Hostel

$ | Cozy converted firehouse

Settle in to one of their many dorms or opt for one of their private rooms instead, both of which are stumbling distance from Dirty 6th. If you are looking for something a bit tamer, check out their cocktail speakeasy that is hidden behind a sliding bookcase.
