There are places you go and then there are those indescribably alluring spots that draw you in at first glimpse. For the independent urban traveler seeking a unique escape, the Kimber Modern holds particular appeal.

Perhaps it’s the clean lines of this architectural work of art tucked away within the hip, trendy and vibrant SoCo district. Maybe it’s the abundant light filtered through the canopy of oaks in the artfully landscaped Courtyard. Or it could be the absolute comfort and attention to detail found in each thoughtfully designed and technologically sophisticated room in this breathtaking boutique hotel.

Regardless of what leads you to Austin, find yourself at the Kimber Modern.

Suites and Standards rooms, happy hour, breakfast, wifi, and parking included. European-style coffee system makes specialty coffee drinks 24/7. Amazing common area and multi-level deck with a 25 foot water feature.

    We stayed at the Kimber Modern Blue room for four nights and it was without a doubt one of the best hotel experiences I’ve ever had. The keyless entry system is fantastic. It makes so much sense and I loved the fact that on arrival you just go straight into your room, plug in the code that you chose, boom you’re done. In. No waiting in line for your key. No fumbling with cards. You’re in.

    The open lounge all day was a pleasure to experience. Great breakfasts. Great teas.

    The only recommendation for change that I could offer is install toilet seats that don’t slam. It’s a small inexpensive detail that makes night time bathroom visits guaranteed to be quiet.

    Oh and their rollaway beds are the most comfortable rollaway beds I’ve ever slept on. I didn’t realize that they were actually air mattresses until the morning of our departure when I woke up to a slightly deflated mattress. I was stuck in the middle like I was in a puffy white taco. But honestly if were staying longer I’m sure they would have pumped it right back up to super mattress bliss.

    If I return to Austin you better believe I’m booking Kimber Modern. And I’m booking a year in advance cause that place is booked all the time. And I completely understand why.

    This hotel is simply fantastic. I think the best hotel experience yet- and I am in the business- They do everything right, AMAZING staff, beautiful grounds, luxury sheets and towels and so many wonderful amenities to feel like you are always being taken care of.
    We arrived really late and so received a text to help ourselves to the complimentary snacks and drinks in the common area. This was as good as it gets when you arrive at a hotel late- worn out and hungry. We had a glass of wine and some pistachios and felt immediately in love with the hotel.
    In the morning we met the manager, Carrie, She was warm, friendly and helpful. She went above and beyond for us!
    It just got better and better! We loved it!
    It feels like home, but better!

    This is one of my favorite hotels of all my travels. This property is located in a great area downtown, a short walk from good food, offices, and sights. The hotel has a unique layout with 4 circular towers, the elevators all provide great views of the city on your way to the room. Navigation can be somewhat confusing, but once you find your way, its not bad. The hotel amenities are outstanding and should be made use of, especially the gigantic gym, and running track. As a SPG platinum I was upgraded consistently here, and provided excellent service.

    I want to live inside the White Suite for-ev-er.

    The whole place is amazing and relaxing. It’s the perfect getaway spot. Everything about the place is serene and relaxing. My husband and I were lucky enough to book the White Suite for our wedding night. I wish we could afford to stay there the whole week. The room was beautiful and the bed was so comfortable. The private deck was wonderful. I just wanted to spend the day wearing their cozy bathrobes and drinking coffee or something out of their complimentary mini-bar.

    The two-person soaking tub was amazing, as well as their shower. That might have been the best shower of my life. Their bath products smelled so good and made my hair and skin so soft.

    Guys, you need to check it out. We will be there at least once a year for our anniversary!

    This place is amazing. The location is fantastic. It’s just off South Congress, with all the great restaurants, live music, and everything else going on there, yet still manages to be quiet and secluded. The White Suite (where we stayed) was amazing down to every last detail. Gorgeous room, amazing bathroom, etc. Even the little things are great; practically every light was on a dimmer switch, including the bedside reading ones.

    Then there’s all the little extras. The courtyard is gorgeous and a great place to lounge around, as is the communal kitchen/sitting area. There was a complimentary happy hour with micro-brews, a cheese plate, dried apricots, etc.

    It’s definitely pricier than a lot of other places, but for a special event (or just a bit of an indulgence), this place is wonderful.

    Great boutique hotel. Fantastic location. Beautiful rooms and courtyard. Very fresh and modern decor. Absolutely loved not having to carry a room all the time and could just use a personal code for entering the room. Friendly and professional staff. Perfect place to stay in Austin.

    Thank you, Kimber Modern, for providing me with a comfortable place to lay my head during my recent three day trip to Austin.

    Finding a decent place to stay in a desirable area of the city can be challenging in Austin… I know, because I made more than a handful of phone calls and online inquiries to hotels that were either completely sold out or way over my budget. I am pretty sure that when I stumbled upon the Kimber Modern, I was lucky to score their last available room during my trip. Orange Room to the rescue!

    I didn’t have expectations, but if I had, this place exceeded them. (And I’m not normally a huge fan of boutique hotels either… Admittedly, I’d prefer to collect Starwood Rewards or Hilton Honors points). Even so, there were so many little touches that KM provided that were so thoughtful and seamless and made my stay that much better.

    For example, keyless entry. You have a 4 digit code for entry that you create upon booking… this makes it easy to enter your room and not worry about losing keys or electronic keys not working. Other pros:

    -the handwritten note I received upon arriving from Carrie and the follow-up in person visit to make sure everything was satisfactory (it sure was!)
    -the wifi works really well!
    -the community room, snacks, happy hour, breakfast, etc… you won’t find that just anywhere
    -all kinds of amenities like a toothbrush, toothpaste, facial wipes, and fabulous bath products
    -super friendly staff
    -amazing location super close to shopping restaurants, Jo’s Coffee, Juice Austin and so much more!

    The door handle on my room broke during my stay but was fixed right away and there isn’t a workout room, but all of the above makes up for that.

    I’d definitely recommend KM if you want a unique Austin experience!

    This was beyond wonderful and comfortable! From the keyless entry to the complimentary beer wine and snacks. Even in the morning there was fresh baked banana bread and bagels. I have never stayed at a hotel where they care this much about their guests!!! Definitely will be returning next time I’m in Austin.

    I love this super modern boutique hotel. It’s Avery small 8 room hotel with no employees.. Everything is code entries.. The room was very comfortable and I love the bathroom products they supply. There is a common room where they had snacks like candy and nuts and complimentary beverages. They also serve breakfast but I didn’t have breakfast there. The courtyard is very pretty with nice patio furniture, tables and hammocks. There are a lot of restaurants, bars and shopping within walking distance so the location is great. Parking is limited

    My wife and I had a great quick 1 night getaway and loved our experience here. We don’t like typical bed and breakfast experiences where the owners and other guests are constantly present. When I get away, I want to be with my wife, not other people.

    Our experience at Kimber Modern was exactly what we were looking for. The only time we saw another person was when we were first entering the manager was randomly leaving and welcomed us. Everything we needed was always there for us and there was no reason to speak to anyone who worked there, even at check-in/checkout (all keyless and prearranged- Loved It!).

    Great room, breakfast and perfect location in SoCo. What more could you ask for? We will definitely be back!
