Hotel San Jose

Top choice hotel in South Austin
Image by

This 1930s-vintage motel has been revamped by celebrated local hotelier Liz Lambert to create a chic SoCo retreat. Stucco bungalows hold minimalist, uncluttered rooms, and there’s a lovely (if tiny) bamboo-fringed pool plus a very Austin-esque courtyard bar, renowned for celebrity-spotting. South Congress is quite the scene these days, and this location puts you right in the thick of it.

In the early evening you may catch the faint sounds of bands in the Continental Club across the street – an utterly pleasing perk.
