Downtown apartment description

Located one block south of the Capitol in a historical building on the corner of Congress Avenue this property is walkable to all of downtown, the University of Texas, Paramount Theatre, 6th Street, and Lady Bird Lake. Perfect for Longhorn football games, Graduation, SXSW, ACL, Formula 1, MotoGP, Triathlons and Marathons.

Recently updated by award-winning designer Raquel Rhodes, the apartment sports wood floors, fabulous furniture, fresh paint colors, and incredible art from local artists. The kitchen is great for cooking for a small group and the bedroom has a comfortable queen bed with hotel quality sheets.

The apartment is just off of Congress Avenue - the main promenade in downtown Austin. Preservation Austin just created a free mobile app, called Historic Austin Tours, to guide you through Congress Avenue. The apartment is in the middle of the tour!

You can walk to awesome restaurants:
Quattro Gatti, Roaring Fork, Perry's, Ruth's Chris, Parkside, Backspace, Congress, Ranch 616, Franklin BBQ, Annie's, Bess Bistro...

Or all the bars on East 6th:
Blind Pig, Maggie Mae's, Rooftop, Midnight Cowboy...

Or the bars on West 6th:
Kung Fu Saloon, The Ranch, Molotov, Rattle Inn...

Or live music
Mohawk, Stubb's, The Parish, La Zona Rosa, Elephant Room, Ray's Backstage...

The list goes on...

The location can't be beat, far enough from 6th St so you can sleep but close enough that you always have something to do and don't have to worry about driving home.

Finally, the keyless door code lock makes check-in/check-out super easy!
