A place to lay your head

Posted: December 10, 2013 in Uncategorized

Need a place to stay in Austin? If so the ’04 has two very cool very “Austin” hotels to accommodate you, the San Jose Hotel and Hotel Saint Cecilia. The Hotel San Jose is an urban bungalow-style hotel located right on South Congress Avenue. The San Jose was built in 1936, has 40 bungalow-style rooms, a very hip modern court yard and a salt water pool. The San Jose also makes one of the best Micheladas I have ever had. Even if you are not staying there, grabbing one of their specialty drinks and listening to their DJ is never a bad idea. One other thing about the San Jose, in true Austin style dogs are always welcome.

The other very cool hotel in the ’04 is the Hotel Saint Cecilia. The Hotel Saint Cecilia is named after the saint of music and poetry. The Hotel is located just of South Congress Avenue and on a secluded estate. The Hotel has 14 rooms including five suites. All the rooms are different from one other each with antique furniture and stylish modern art. Each room has a record player and you can check out records up front from their extensive vinyl collection. According to their website “these accommodations take inspiration from the experimentation of sixties writers like William Burroughs the daring and extravagance of groups like the Stones in the early seventies and the defiance of convention embodied by artists like Miro and Warhol in the late fifties and early sixties.” The Saint Cecilia also has a beautiful pool surrounded with bean bag chairs, free bicycles for touring the city and an inviting lounge with a fireplace.

Both these hotels aren’t cheap but then again everyone should treat themselves once in a while.
