We recently returned from a visit to Austin. It had been over 25 years since my last visit and much has changed. There is a lot to do, music to hear, wonderful biking system and super good food. We like small boutique hotels that meet our selective criteria: interesting design, "appropriate chill factor", no kids, and a great location. We selected Kimber after carefully considering San Jose and Saint Cecilia. Nothing against the other two establishments but we were very happy with our choice. It hit all marks and then some.They have incorporated a lot of nice details, including keyless locks, a great center kitchen/commons space stocked with good coffees, brew and munchies (hence better than home!), it is super quiet and the design is perfect. We chose one of the three suites and couldn't have been happier. We felt like family there and spoke for a while with management about the property and future plans. Our only knock is that we were in a queen bed - yes only one of the seven rooms has a king! Definitely something they are well aware of and may change down the road. We understand they are opening a second outpost in Rainey - a very cool area northeast of the Kimber. It will be 4-5 X as large. Let's see if they can translate 7 rooms to 30ish. I think they can!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- There are places you go. And then there are those indescribably alluring spots that draw you in at first glimpse. For the independent urban traveler seeking a unique escape, the Kimber Modern holds particular appeal. Perhaps it’s the clean lines of this architectural work of art tucked away within the hip, trendy and vibrant SoCo district. Maybe it’s the abundant light filtered through the canopy of oaks in the artfully landscaped Courtyard. Or it could be the absolute comfort and attention to detail found in each thoughtfully designed and technologically sophisticated room in this breathtaking boutique hotel. Regardless of what leads you to Austin, find yourself at the Kimber Modern. ... more less
