New 80-Suite Boutique Colton House Hotel Now Open in Austin, Texas – Hospitality Net
Yesterday, Colton House HotelAn 80-suite luxury property opens its doors on Austin’s hip South Congress Avenue. The property is inspired by its distinctive surroundings and shows the fascinating spirit of the Lone Star State. Texas’s rich history is duly considered with locally handpicked art and design features. The Inherit Hotel Group pioneered the suite-based hotel concept at The Guesthouse Hotel in Chicago and follows the same approach as the Colton House Hotel. It combines residential luxury with the upscale amenities of a boutique hotel and staff that invites guests to wander home in a modern, yet authentic Texas setting.
All The suites are between 460 and 1,170 square feet, significantly larger than a standard hotel room. Studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites are well equipped with modern kitchens or kitchenettes, living rooms, and many have in-room washers and dryers. The spacious rooms can accommodate a wide variety of travelers, including families with young children and pets, groups of friends, or business travelers. Since the modern traveler is looking for a more spacious stay with a dedicated secluded work area or multiple rooms for video calling while kids play in a second room, the Colton House Hotel has plenty of options.
Property amenities, opening later this month, include: Simona’s coffee + cocktail bar, a casual place curated to offer guests and locals a selection of luxurious coffee, tea, wine and other spirits from Austin’s finest vendors. The hotel and Simona’s have also partnered with local restaurants and caterers to create an eclectic mix of the best local Austin dishes. Upstairs, you can enjoy a cocktail and light snacks in The Parlor, an elegant lounge area with leather sofas and additional seating for small gatherings.
The heart of the hotel is The Backyard, a 5,000-square-foot outdoor space designed around three 80-year-old living oak trees that is ideal for small events. A spacious deck with a fire pit and naturally landscaped seating leads into The Lawn, an open area where bocce ball, croquet, bowling, and more can be played. A heated outdoor pool rounds off the experience and, starting this spring, is offering full-service and private cabanas just in time for summer in Texas. Above the expansive outdoor area is a 1,200 square foot penthouse event space connected to an expansive rooftop terrace offering breathtaking views of the Texas Hill Country and the Austin skyline.
Next to the lobby, the club room is tailor-made for casual night-drinkers or small groups. Children can also enjoy their own corner with a French-inspired game table, versatile toys, and children’s books and games. The library is a bespoke, structured space with large bookshelves, a custom black walnut table that can seat up to 16 people, and all the audiovisual tools required for an intimate meeting. The fitness center on the second floor has peloton bikes, a full yoga studio, and additional state-of-the-art equipment with breathtaking views.
