Larger than a Standard, the Grand Standard rooms are located in the central courtyard building, away from the street, and offer a queen bed, spacious bath and shared patio seating area. Grand Standard rooms are approximately 240 sq. ft.
My boyfriend and I decided to go to Austin for a long weekend of BBQ, live music and relaxation. My co-worker (originally from Austin) recommended we stay at the Hotel San Jose.. or at a minimum, pop in for a drink at night. We ended up staying at the Hotel and we are both so glad we did. The hotel is super charming and nicely tucked away – offering a serene getaway from the busy S. Congress. The rooms are very cool (we stayed in two different rooms due to availability) and they were all decorated and stocked with the hippest textiles, posters and mini bar items. We loved the tree-top room with a balcony, and wished we could have stayed there all week! The staff were really friendly and the room service (we ordered breakfast in bed all three days) was delicious and presented perfectly! Obviously the location is outstanding – but it’s the overall atmosphere of the place that will make your stay in Austin extra special and fun. If you can, spring for the tree-top suites, because room awesomeness does vary.
