Situated in Downtown’s Second Street District, Austin Proper Hotel and Residences is the newest luxury lifestyle hotel in Austin, just steps from Lady Bird Lake, the legendary Austin City Limits music venue and nearby boutiques. With inspiring interiors by Kelly Wearstler and culinary offerings in collaboration with McGuire Moorman Hospitality, Austin Proper offers 244 rooms and suites, a dedicated spa and fitness center, and 14,000 square feet of meeting and event spaces, including a rooftop pool deck offering small-batch tequilas and sunset views. Anything less just wouldn’t be Proper.
With Austin as muse, the 244 guest rooms and suites have been carefully detailed by designer Kelly Wearstler for a sense of residence. Interiors are deeply influenced by local craft and artisans with Arts & Crafts-inspired wall covering, distressed hardwoods and barefoot-friendly area rugs. Well-considered appointments including signature Proper beds, Aesop bath amenities, Kelly Wearstler x Parachute Home robes and state-of-the-art connectivity.
Leading Austin Proper’s array of creative dining is McGuire Moorman, a James Beard Award Nominee hospitality team behind Austin’s modern food, drink and fashion empire. At the landmark eatery, The Peacock, guests can dip into North African, Israeli, and Lebanese spreads and sunny mezze. On the rooftop pool deck at La Piscina, a destination restaurant becomes the antidote to Tex-Mex, in the form of family-style platters piled with wood-grilled meats. Morning, noon or night, The Mockingbird café & coffee shop, serves savories and tempting treats like soft-serve Greek frozen yogurt, while Goldie’s cocktail bar is an elegant hideaway.
An array of high-end amenities aim to refresh, whether with a challenging workout in the 2,000-square-foot fitness center, borrowing a bike for a lakeside trail ride, or a dip into world-class wellness Verbena Spa. Guests are encouraged to linger on property, perhaps setting up camp by the 5th-floor pool. Dining options satisfy a variety of moods, whether cafe grab-and-go, garden cocktails overlooking Shoal Creek; poolside suppers, or a full spread at The Peacock signature restaurant.
