Hotel San José

1316 S. Congress Ave., Austin, Texas, 78704, United States

This uber-hip, bungalow-style boutique hotel, in the midst of the South Congress Avenue action, features a modern, minimalist style, adorned with balconies, patios, and tropical vegetation. Rooms cater to the young and beautiful, with concrete floors, flat-screen TVs, locally-stocked mini bars and spartan, artist-driven interior design, like pine furniture created by Marfa, Texas artisans. The pool is small but pretty, and the courtyard lounge serves bar snacks, beer, wine and select cocktails, like their signature champassions (champagne and passion fruit juice with raspberries). Jo's Coffee occupies the same lot and several first-rate eateries are a short stroll away.

PROS

  • epitome of South Austin cool
  • high-end amenities
  • antidote to antiseptic motels everywhere

CONS

  • the hopping lounge can mean late-night noise for courtyard-facing rooms
  • not ideal for business or ultra-conservative travelers
