Great service, great vibes, great neighborhood! The valet parking can get crazy but just text them in advance. Overall, it's a Kimpton hotel ... in Austin! Guaranteed to have a great experience!

I wanted to love this hotel....I really did. Based on the reviews, I thought it would be perfect. Staff and location were wonderful. However, bed was uncomfortable, water pressure and temperature were HORRIBLE, noise from bar kept us up until 1 am, and parking was so expensive (no self parking option as someone stated in a prior review). The shower doesn’t have doors so the water temp issue was especially aggravating and water gets everywhere! The lobby and rooms are very dark. The rooms appeared clean but if you looked closely, areas were overlooked such as the interior hinges on closets were extremely dusty. Areas outside elevators had stuff crusted into carpet. They need to work out some kinks.

I am sorry that the experience you had with us was not up to Kimpton's standards. This is not what aim to provide for our guests and we hope we get the opportunity to give you a different memory of the Hotel Van Zandt.

Such a relaxed atmosphere. Everything was great! I really appreciated the social hour in the afternoon and the coffee in the morning. Great location and friendly staff! I would highly recommend the Kimpton Van Zandt!

Gorgeous hotel and amenities and restaurant

Pros: Location, quality, rooms, restaurant
Cons: Charge for Wifi - really? Who does that at this point? Seems insulting to not have free wifi, and the valet service is $42 per day!
Location: Location is amazing - close to Rainy street restuarants and bars - walk to everything - capitol, park, lake, etc. coffee shops - amazing location!
Great hotel and room - wonderful class and quality. Staff are outstanding, Restaurant is great. And the location is truly wonderful to be where you want to be walking along the lake and also all the restaurants on Rainey.

Artsy and fun and modern and cozy

Loved this non boring hotel. Lots of quirks that made it memorable and not white bread. Nice happy hour free margs, fabulous bed, right next to Clive's bar, easy access to lake paths. Just loved it. Thanks!

Beautiful hotel. Comfortable. Great vibe.

We had so much fun staying at the Van Zandt, centrally located between downtown and the River Walk. No need to rent a car. We took car services the whole time or used the public bikes you can rent right outside. The hotel also has a dozen bikes available for free use but they're popular. They're first come-first serve and were already gone from the lobby by the time we needed a couple one day. The hotel staff is friendly and accommodating. The pool area is also beautiful and a great place to lounge.

Rooftop pool

Austin had a power outage so of course our hotel was affected. We had just made it back from downtown and they only had one valet attendant on a Saturday night which is crazy due to the fact that it was a football game in town that weekend. The front desk did not notify us of the power outage upon arrival that night. The only way we found about it was when we got to our room and there was no water or electricity. Luckily we made it to our room because they still allowed everyone to use the elevators. We didnt find out until the next morning that some people were stuck on then for 15 minutes or so. We went back downstairs to speak with management about the outage and saw our vehicle still hadn't been parked and it already been over an hour. We went to speak to the valet attendant and he was like "Oh that's your car, I'll get on it now." The rooftop pool had tons of bugs in it and there was no one around to clean it. The pool hours were supposed to be from sunrise to sunset, however when we tried to go for sunrise they told us it wasn't open yet. Despite everything, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel was great distance to a ton of bars and the pool had an awesome view. Maybe we just had a bad experience due to the power outage.
