Verified Reviews of South Congress Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Austin Experience"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We've visited the South Congress Hotel twice now and can't say enough good things about it. The staff is welcoming, helpful and attentive. The cafe's a great place to relax and have a yummy meal. Our room (Poolside) was very comfy and so well laid out with a sitting area as well as a bedroom. It's not downtown, but that's one of the best points as it's got it's own laid back vibe and neighborhood and only a $6 ride share from the action. The bar was packed every Fri and Sat with lots of locals that gave us tips on what to see and where to eat.
