Boutique hotels don’t usually have concrete floors, said Lauren Viera in the Chicago Tribune. Nor do they normally offer “sterile, white bathrooms” or beds with no duvets. But “this rehabbed 1930s motor lodge” has the advantage of being in the heart of one of Austin’s hippest neighborhoods, the funky South Congress strip. Located at one end of this string of chic shops, restaurants, and bars, the Hotel San José “is just plain cool.” The modern-minimalist rooms each contain a handcrafted wooden desk and Eames chairs. The staff is young and casual, the coffee shop features live entertainment on weekends, and the lovely courtyard in back is “hidden behind ivy-covered walls.”
