“The Kimber Modern is the best!”
Reviewed 22 March 2011

The Kimber Modern is my favorite hotel in Austin.
The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable.
The staff is friendly and accommodating (and super cool!).
It's located just steps away from everything, yet still offers the peace and quiet you need after a long day at SxSW.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a warm getaway from snowy New England, and we found Kimber Modern through Travel & Leisure. It did not disappoint. We absolutely loved it. We stayed in the White Suite, which featured a gorgeous, tiled bathroom with tub big enough for two and a private outdoor patio shaded by an old, sprawling tree. The common areas are comfortable and beautifully designed. We enjoyed breakfast, happy hour and the delicious coffee that's available 24/7. The staff is friendly and helpful; we appreciated the fantastic restaurant recommendations. The hotel is also perfectly located in the center of the hip So Congress neighborhood, but sufficiently off the beaten path. Kimber Modern is now our Austin hotel.

I travel to Austin often, and I promise you, Kimber Modern is the nicest, most beautifully designed hotel you can stay at in the city. Upon close inspection, you can tell it was built by talented architects....everything is such quality (the moldings, door handles, lighting, bathroom hardware). It also doesn't hurt that the hotel is decorated with insanely expensive furniture. I don't want to discredit other beautiful hotels in Austin (San Jose, Saint Cecilia), but Kimber has this serenity and peace about it that is hard to find at hotels.

I noticed another poter complained about the breakfast. Well, if you want to gorge yourself all morning, go to IHOP. KImber is about quality over quantity. The fruit salad is killer, and the baked goods are local. It's all self serve, which I love. Nobody is there to watch you, so you can go back for seconds if you'd like :) Muesli, juices, jams, yogurts, and other high quality items are also available. Their espresso/coffee machine makes a great cup and is available all day, as well as wine and beer for happy hour!

I feel like I'm promoting this hotel, and... I sorta am. I would just like everyone to have the chance to experience it. Maybe I'll be sorry.... i just tried to book in April and they're full. Kimber, you're the best!

Stayed at the Kimber Modern when my wife and I had the chance to get away for a few days. The room is different than most hotel rooms but we found it to be very comfortable and functional. The bed was very comfortable and we really liked the large shower and bath products. Other things to like: Free parking on site; included light breakfast of high quality items such as fresh fruit salad, bagels with spreads, yogurts, etc.; the happy hour with complimentary beer, wine, fine cheese and crackers, nuts, fruit, etc.; located right next to South Congress. We really liked the keyless security system and felt very secure inside the property. Loved the interior courtyard space - perfect for relaxing on a pretty day. Would highly recommend this as an alternative to the big hotels. It was a great experience.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Kimber Modern. The hotel is set back on a quiet circle in the heart of Austin's bustling SoCo district. Every detail of the architectural renovation was so carefully thought out and is visually stunning while remaining the essence of simplicity. There is an inner courtyard with a large fountain which provides a very zen like, calming backdrop as one enters the hotel; it both brings guests together if one chooses, while maintaining privacy from the outside world. The rooms are comfortable, squeaky clean and well appointed (even providing umbrellas in the closet for the occasional Austin shower) and offer the deliciousness of (Malin and Goetz) bath products (even my husband who is a no-nonsense unscented shower gel type of guy is a convert). A nice breakfast buffet if one felt like staying in, but my favorite was the daily happy hour offering wine or sparkling water, some yummy cheeses and fruits and other gnoshes. Kimber and her staff were warm and helpful when needed. We'd love to return to the Kimber Modern whenever back in Austin.

Kimber Modern is a little piece of heaven tucked away in a prime location in Austin. Service was very personable and like nothing I have seen before. The scenery of the outdoors was so peaceful and relazing as if you were staying at a spa with sleeping arrangements. You felt relaxed the min you walked though the door. I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitly spread the word. I will be back many times over. Thank you Kimber for your warm hospitality, you made our girlsweekend unforgettable.

I'd been on the road nearly a week for business and traveled to Austin for a weekend getaway with my wife. After staying in a somewhat dumpy place for work, I wanted to stay somewhere new & special, which made Kimber Modern an obvious choice. What we hadn't counted on was the warmth of the space & sweetness of the staff. So many modern structures are cold and unfeeling. Not so with the Kimber. It's a beautiful and inviting hotel with all the small touches one hopes for but rarely gets. Incredible coffee, delicious continental breakfast with loads of fresh fruit, wonderful soaps/shampoos in the bathrooms, in-room speakers with an iPod connection, free WiFi, free wine/cheese/beer during happy hour, a computer & printer in the common room, very comfortable bed, etc. The White Suite is absolutely splendid and the multi-level deck with trees & hammocks is like a grownup treehouse. The staff (including eponymous owner) were very courteous, friendly and helpful. I felt like we've been friends for years. I will stay here again and again on subsequent trips and hope to book the whole place for future television & film productions. Google the NY Times article. Kimber Modern is a genuine gem!
