Opened in December 2015, this new downtown boutique hotel gives guest a front-row seat for Austin’s world-famous live music scene. Located in the Historic Rainey Street District, Hotel Van Zandt is a short walk to Moody Theater, home of Austin City Limits, and overlooks Lady Bird Lake.

Designed with sophisticated clean lines and neutral color palette, the hotel has rough-around-the-edges accents like worn-leather couches and a wood-burning fireplace that keep the common areas comfortable and inviting. Rooms offer views of downtown Austin or Lady Bird Lake and are decorated with dark woods, crisp white linens and brushed bronzes. Tech-savvy rooms keep travelers connected with free Wi-Fi and Bluetooth speakers.

Like other Kimpton properties, the Hotel Van Zandt is known for “over-the-top pet friendliness,” says Southern Living. Man’s best friend is invited to stay at the hotel, no matter the size, breed or weight. Furry guests are welcomed with a bed, bowls, and the concierge-curated list of nearby pet-friendly restaurants, parks and groomers.

Soak up the Texas sun from a poolside cabana looking out over Lady Bird Lake. The Pool Deck serves up cocktails, craft brews, pressed juices, and local fare for brunch and lunch. After the sun goes down, the party heats up with live music 365 days of the year at Geraldine’s. The fourth-floor space affords almost panoramic views of the city and is oriented around a stage, transforming the room from grown-up to “rowdy,” with nightly performances from local artists (The Austin Chronicle).

No matter the travel itinerary, Hotel Van Zandt makes it easy to stay healthy while away from home. The hotel’s fitness center is open 24 hours a day, each room is equipped with a free yoga mat and PUBLIC bikes are available at the front desk.

The location was perfect. Steps away from Rainey street, which had some great bars and night life. Also just a short walk to downtown Austin. We traveled with our small dog, and the hotel was very accommodating. The staff really made sure he was comfortable and doted over him! Also enjoyed the social hour.

The rooms weren't as nice as we expected. The bed was just OK, and the finishes were average.
