Opened in November 2015, this downtown boutique hotel gives guests a front-row seat for Austin’s world-famous live music scene. Nestled in the Historic Rainey Street District, steps away from the area's many bungalows-turned-bars, Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt offers stunning views of Lady Bird Lake and the Austin skyline.
Designed with sophisticated clean lines and a warm color palette, the hotel features worn-leather couches, chandeliers crafted from musical instruments 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 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.
Poolside cabanas overlook over Lady Bird Lake while 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 lively.
No matter the travel itinerary, Kimpton 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.
