Prosper Hotel… it’s a design hotel so you don’t get all the benefits but definitely the best.

Proper Hotel*

Usual suspects - JW and W. There are other hotels though which I’ve stayed at and quite like: Van Zandt on Rainey, Omni downtown (pool scene used to be good circa 2014), Driskell (supposedly haunted, but very old fashioned/TX vibes)

like

Van Zandt is awesome

Um, depends what your actual budget is but Mirval (sp?) is insane! There are only three of them in the US and Austin is serene. But it’s definitely a resort, not really worth the splurge if you’re just using it to put your head down at night.

Recently stayed at the fairmont and they had a great pool area!

Have to say - I was pleasantly happy with the W. great room. Very spacious. Not much beyond that tho. (Decent location.)

Driskell. It’s a Hyatt property too so you can get some points for it

like

Canopy was decent.
