The Hotel of San José is located on the S. Congress Street, very trendy and hip. Let’us take a stroll in their courtyard.

Though it’s located at a lay back area of Austin, the hotel room charge is not so, $ 270 to $375 per night (may have to pay another $30 to 40 valet parking fee) according to their website.

Walking across the bridge, you are in Austin downtown:

A few yards down the bridge, you are at the Lady Bird Lake trail, more cyclists and runners on this side of the town. 🙂

  1. Good morning, Amy. Looks like a healthy city. Great photos. I feel I was there… maybe not running. 😉
    I don’t think I have ever stayed in a hotel with that kind of price. Maybe one day I will pamper myself.
    Have a wonderful day.

    • I had no idea it was this high, and is not a luxury hotel. But, hotels in the downtown area are about $300 per night plus parking. I went to Yelp, didn’t hear any complaint about the price. 😕
