Keeping it safe and easy:

For the safety of guests and staff, we are following the City of Austin’s safety standards. More on that here.

We will be sanitizing surfaces and touch points regularly, and we will have hand sanitizer available for you at every touch point in the hotel. we've created a new, low-touch check-in process. All pathways to the places you need to go are open-air. Before you arrive, you will receive a special pre-arrival email detailing our latest safety updates.

By accepting your reservation, you understand that:

  • You will maintain social distance outside your party whenever possible, especially in THE elevator, hallways and staircases.

  • The Hotel elevators are reserved for one party at a time.

  • Masks are required in all public spaces including the elevator.

The grounds are getting lush. There’s room by the pool. There’s shade in the Q-Hut. There’s lots of ways to be outside without even leaving the hotel.

We’re practically in Zilker Park, so you can hit Barton Springs or Ladybird Lake at a moment’s notice. Right down the road, you can bike, hike or run the trails Or rent canoes, kayaks or paddle boards and go out on the lake.

The stair is open-air, the halls are open-air and every room has a terrace.

You can get espresso, pastries and breakfast tacos at Hot L Coffee in the morning. You can get a picnic of Fried Chicken and take it to the park, or dine at Carpenters Hall. You can get beer and wine by the pool or in your room or room service.

We host weekly outdoor small-scale events too - Check-in with us about events and activities closer to your stay or let us know if you need any Covid-safe city recommendations.
