Keep reading for our Hotel Van Zandt review and check out all the fun things to do in Austin while there.
As soon as we checked into the Hotel Van Zandt we were met with pampering. We were handed a complimentary glass of wine (with an option of beer) as they checked us in. We were also informed that they had a daily social hour that included live music and complimentary wine. It was such a great way to get everyone out of their room and enjoying the beautiful lobby.
The amenities didn’t stop there. With the hotel being located in downtown, most things were located a walk away. However, if you wanted to get somewhere a little faster or just enjoy the beauty of Austin, Hotel Van Zandt has bikes available to rent. Would you rather stay inside and cozy up with a good book? They have a list of books chosen by the team to check out and enjoy.
Hotel Van Zandt Review: The Rooms
The Hotel Van Zandt rooms are another highlight. Many give you beautiful views of the lake or town. You’ll find vibrant colors, unique art, and little nods to music like in the shades. When I think of Austin I think of how colorful it is and found that reflected in a sophisticated manner in the rooms.
When not in the room, there’s always the opportunity to relax at the pool and grab a drink at the bar pool.
Hotel Van Zandt Review: The Restaurant
Geraldine’s is a destination of it’s own and a place we’ve gone before because the food is so wonderful. Geraldine’s serves up shareable plates so you can share different small dishes with your table. That’s always my favorite because the more dishes I can try, the better. With every dish, Hotel Van Zandt adds a special twist for a one of kind twist. Their smoked carrots come in a mole sauce, the buttermilk biscuits come with a divine honey butter sauce, and their Texas quail is served with a coconut curry sauce. Many nights they have live music and you can’t miss a jazz brunch.
Hotel Van Zandt: Final Thoughts
Overall, we loved our stay at the Hotel Van Zandt. We’re always looking for memorable experiences that are unlike any other and Hotel Van Zandt had so many detailed touches that made the trip that much more social. While you could spend your entire vacation enjoying all that the hotel has to offer, the hotel is also well located so that you can enjoy all of the fun things to do in Austin.
