Hotel Description

New hotels are popping up left and right in Austin. One of the most promising is Hotel Van Zandt. It’s by Kimpton, purveyor of hip boutique hotels in urban settings across the country, so you already know part of what to expect: plush guest rooms, local character, an impressive list of complimentary amenities, from the popular evening “social hour” to in-room yoga mats. Indeed, the Kimpton recipe works as well in Austin as it works everywhere else. Each of their hotels has a destination-inspired theme: at Hotel Van Zandt, as the name might suggest, it’s Austin’s famous music scene.

And it sure feels like a place a blues-based alt-country rocker might stay with his entourage. It’s downtown, located in the historic Rainey Street district, and the aesthetic is rustic with a refined twist, laid-back and masculine: natural wood, burnished brass, lived-in leather, cool lighting fixtures, modern art installations. The bar-restaurant, Geraldine’s, specializes in craft beers and barbecued short ribs, and hosts live sets by local musicians every night of the week.

Retreat into silence — or plug into the Bluetooth speakers, this being a rock’n’roll hotel — upstairs in one of Hotel Van Zandt’s sleek guest rooms. Luxurious but laid-back, with a crisp white and charcoal gray palette, they’re outfitted in dark wood with warm bronze detailing. Standard amenities include free wi-fi and the aforementioned yoga mats. Suites have extras like soaking tubs, seating areas, and views of Lady Bird Lake. You can bring your dog along — like other Kimpton hotels, it’s a pet-friendly place — and order a steak at three in the morning, as room service is offered 24 hours a day. What’s more Austin than that?

There’s complimentary coffee in the morning, though should you require a cortado or a flat white instead, that’s also available at the onsite Café 605. Grab a pastry and stake your claim on a poolside chaise — it’s an ideal spot to recover from the night before. There’s a well-equipped fitness center, or, alternatively, there’s whiskey on the Pool Deck. Swing by the social hour, then stop at Geraldine’s to see what’s on the evening lineup before heading out. Or not. Hotel Van Zandt is the kind of hotel where you might happily spend the whole day and night.

Please note: Geraldine's restaurant and the Pool Deck will be closed on June 3, 2017.
