Venue Features
The Scene:
The Hotel San Jose is a hotel for friends from near and far in Austin, Texas. Built in 1936 as an “ultramodern” motor court, the property has been transformed into a 40 room urban bungalow-style hotel tucked behind stucco walls and set amidst lush garden courtyards. The San Jose is located on South Congress Avenue, a few blocks from downtown and Lady Bird Johnson Lake in the heart of one of Austin’s favorite neighborhoods. In addition to being a unique place to sleep, the Hotel San Jose serves as a gathering place and occasional hub of community activity for locals and visitors alike. Dogs are always welcome.
Standout Venue Features:
Guests are encouraged to take advantage of our bike rentals, instant cameras, iPods with custom San Jose playlists, and typewriter for rent. Bring your four-legged friends and join us for a beverage on our patio as dogs are always welcome.
