Pillow Talk About the Past at Historic Hotels in Austin

Description

Austin, Texas, is a thoroughly modern city, and you’ll find plenty of hotels in Austin to reassure you that this is, in fact, the twenty-first century. But for those who’d rather find a place to room that hints at the historic - those early days of Austin when cattle drive and the Texas Rangers were more than just a distant memory - rest easy. No spurs, saddles or steers required for sweet dreams in these historic hotels in Austin.

Conveniently located downtown, The Driskill traces its roots back to 1886 and the days of cattle barons. This high-end hotel can boast, in addition to its historic pedigree, a top-ranked hotel restaurant (the Driskill Grill). As if that don’t beat all - they are also kid and pet friendly.

Built in 1900, the Goodall Wooten House might not be quite as old but it still earns listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Once a private residence, this atmospheric estate has been given a renovated life as the luxury boutique hotel, Mansion at Judges’ Hill.

For something a little quirkier, try instead the Austin Motel (“So close yet so far out”). It’s downtown and dates back to 1938, which doesn’t classify it as old, exactly, but it certainly has enough character to earn it some mention in the historic category.

But really, for a more intimate glimpse of Austin’s early days, one can’t overlook some of the city’s bed and breakfasts. Take the Austin Folk House, for one. Built in 1880, this former residence now sees service (with all the modern comforts of course) as a pleasant bed and breakfast close to the University of Texas at Austin. Another historic option? The Woodburn House Bed and Breakfast in Hyde Park. Set in an atmospheric neighborhood (and a designated City of Austin Historical Landmark) that also happens to be the oldest suburb around, you’ll enjoy a quiet night’s sleep here and access to the wonderful wrap-around porch. No room at the inn? Another fine option is the Adams House, also set in the Hyde Park neighborhood. This conscientiously restored colonial revival-style home has location in its favor but also some killer breakfast burritos. Who said history was dead?
