Kimber Modern Hotel
Ranked #1 of 36 Austin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 September 2010

I hear it doesn't rain much in Austin. Well, it did during our entire stay at the Kimber Modern. I must say, if I was to be stuck in any hotel/motel, this would be the place. It is so sleek and elegant. The common room was a great place to dry off, grab a snack, and meet some fellow travelers. Our room was quiet, cozy, and fun.

I really can't recommend this place enough. I love the privacy and the do-it-yourself mentality, even though there is always somewhere there, lurking, to help if we really needed it. An invisible but attentive staff is what makes this place special, in addition to the private surroundings, amazing architecture, easy parking and convenient location. I can't stay anywhere else now after having been spoiled for the past days, even if they were damp ones.

Had a wonderful Labor Day weekend with 5 friends at Kimber Modern, Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Austin. An oasis of tranquility just one block from all the fun, food and nightlife of South Congress. Thank you for a great stay, will return again and again! :~)

My girlfriend and I couldn't have been happier with our experience at the Kimber Modern - from the amazing courtesy and service we received Sara, the hotel manager, to the prime location on south congress, to the wonderful time we had talking with Kimber, to the layout and amenities of the hotel, every detail is well thought out...the silent central air in each room, the keyless entry, and the sustainable fresh local fare for the included breakfast, were particularly nice touches! We couldn't have been happier and are looking forward to staying there again when we are in Austin! Thanks so much Kimber and Sara!
Best,
Johnny Duda and Lindsay Gandy

My wife and I wanted to spend a leisurely and relaxing weekend in Austin. Wanted a different hotel experience so I researched the boutique hotels. Was very impressed at what I saw on the web site so I booked. Very impressed from the moment we pulled into our parking spot. The atmosphere was exactly what we had hoped for. It felt like home. We utilized all the amenities. We especially enjoyed the late nights out on the deck. A bottle of wine and the Austin night air. Staying at the Kimber Modern MADE our weekend in Austin.

an excellent place to stay for a weekend in town, if you can afford it. the location is perfect, right off of the trendy congress strip. and yet it's quiet and offers a relaxing haven if you want to just "get away". the rooms are impecable and the clean, minimalist, modern decor offer something different visually from most people's homes. the breakfast is nice, though don't expect a "warm and fuzzy" bed and breakfast style breakfast. The coffee and teas are excellent. Conceptually, the hotel wants you to feel like it's not a hotel with staff, check ins, and service formalitities. It wants you to feel like it's your home, where you can come in and out of anytime without dealing with any one at all. so if you're not in to small talk and other hotel issues, it's a great place to be. the lounge areas are big or small enough for privacy or socializing. we went in the peak of summer so just urged for a cool pool to dip into, but the shower is great and provided some relief! All in all, we really enjoyed our stay.

This hotel feels like an oasis as soon as you walk into the garden. It was very hot while we were in Austin but the AC worked silently and effortlessly in keeping our room always the perfect temperature. The showers are fantastic. Furnishings are minimalist but lovely. Common areas are spacious and inviting.

If you are a fan of live music, the location is fantastic--right behind the Continental Club. Even though our room was the closest to the club in the whole hotel, we never heard a sound.

Breakfast and happy hour were simple but perfectly satisfying. It was a very nice touch to have an automatic espresso machine available.

The staff are nearly invisible, but when I emailed to ask if we could extend our stay they were very accommodating and friendly.

Our only compliant was that the internet was a bit spotty. Sometimes it was perfectly good, but at other times it failed completely.
