Texas Monthly blogger Dan Solomon recently noted that Travel & Leisure has named Austin's South Congress Hotel one of the "Best New Hotels on the Planet." (San Antonio's Hotel Emma also made the 10-spot list.)
Designed by the firms of Austin tastemakers Dick Clark and Michael Hsu and hosting four popular food spots as well as boutiques, the hotel is a natural for the list. Perched over a perfect spot on South Congress, with a rooftop pool and dark, cool interiors, it's also a natural magnet for cool young things who run this town. We thought we'd let their Instagrams speak for themselves.
(And, yes, it's already booked for SXSW.)
