Overview

The Carpenter Hotel Austin is a stunning piece of architecture and a great hotel. There are 93 rooms, each with it a private balcony, a lovely pool, a restaurant, a coffee house, and some tremendous communal spaces to relax and enjoy your surroundings. The location is just south of Lady Bird Lake; it’s next to Butler Park and is the closest hotel to Zilker Park and Barton Springs. There’s a lot of great restaurants within walking distance (Terry Blacks BBQ┬áis not to be missed). And you can walk to downtown Austin in 20 minutes. This is an excellent location for couples and families.

The rooms at The Carpenter Hotel are not huge. The smallest start from 247 sq ft, and the largest suites are around 400 sq ft (which is plenty big enough). Even the smaller rooms have everything you need and are designed so well that you will not feel cramped at all. They offer queen or king beds, as well as family rooms (two queen beds). The bathrooms are a highlight, with stunning blue subway tiled walls. The room fit-out is stylish and comfortable, really well crafted but not opulent. It’s luxury but in a flashy way. 

The hotel was designed to reuse an existing structure with the addition of a much larger new structure. It’s resulted in an incredible sense of place; it really feels like the entire hotel has been there forever. Built next to an old grove of pecan trees, the hotel makes use of deadfall timber from the grove. Many people won’t notice why but this use of hyper-local materials adds to the sense of place and feeling of contentment that you get while at The Carpenter Hotel. One of the best boutique hotels in Texas.
