Vintage meets modern as the property pays tribute to Texas’ rich culture and Austin’s hip vibe with a contemporary twist. The building’s minimalist architecture stands out from the rest, as it pairs perfectly with timeless furniture pieces and decorations. The bold, vibrant colors filled with dloral patterns and the hotel’s picturesque furniture, corridors and even wallpapers, are meant to make a statement— leaving visitors longing for their next stay.
The award-winning interior designer carefully curated all 80 suites alongside owner Simona Krug and Troo Designs through sourcing various local decor elements from Texas small towns including Round Top, La Grange and Lockhart. The perfect depiction of Texan charm can be found through its decor featuring beautifully crafted leather and wooden carved headboards, custom hallway runners and more.
“I’m so happy that we were able to allow travelers to Austin, as well as local Austinites looking for a destination within town, to feel like they are at home in a cohesive, elevated space that lends itself to so many different experiences,” says Rios.
