Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt, Texas

This dynamic downtown hotel oozes Austin cool with its music-inspired décor, buzzing rooftop bar and live music performances.

Named after legendary American singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt, this Kimpton property feels right at home in the Live Music Capital of the World - think chandeliers crafted out of musical instruments and replica vintage concert posters. A chic, laidback property, the Van Zandt exudes style from the open lobby to the buzzing rooftop pool (complete with underwater speakers) and bar overlooking Austin’s sparkling skyline. You can enjoy live music every night at Geraldine’s, one of Austin’s most acclaimed eateries, alongside a superb menu of authentic yet inventive Texan dishes. 

With their cool grey and blue interiors, each of the 319 guestrooms is comfortably appointed with plush king or queen beds, oversized bathrooms and luxury Atelier Bloem amenities. Complimentary amenities include yoga mats in every room and bikes for roaming around town, but for the best views, opt for one of the Corner King rooms which have large picture windows looking out onto downtown Austin and Lady Bird Lake. The lake is just a stone’s throw away, as are some of the city’s top restaurants, bars and cultural hotspots.
