The all-suite Colton House Hotel debuts in Austin

by | 19 Jan 2021 | Projects

Inherit Hotel Group has announced the opening of Colton House Hotel, an 80-suite luxury property on South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas.

This luxurious new hotel aims to encapsulate the spirit of the Lone Star State, paying tribute to Texan history through its design and local art. We take a look inside the all-suite property.

A suite-based hotel concept

Inherit Hotel Group honed the suite-based hotel concept with The Guesthouse Hotel in Chicago. Now the group is continuing this approach with Colton House Hotel; combining the feel of a luxury residence with the amenities of an upscale boutique hotel, it invites guests to ‘wander home’ to a modern but authentically Texan setting.

The hotel’s 80 suites range between 460 and 1,170 sq ft in size. Its studios, as well as its one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, come with a kitchenette or full modern kitchen, a living room and, in many cases, in-room washers and dryers. This accommodation caters for a diversity of guests, from families with children and pets to groups of friends and business travellers seeking a dedicated remote working area.

“We’re introducing a brand-new hotel category to Austin with an all-suite based model that blends the perks of an Airbnb stay with modern hotel amenities,” said David Krug, president of Inherit Hotel Group. “Colton House Hotel’s residential approach combines ample space and comfortable luxury for small groups, families and remote workers seeking more flexibility and personalisation in today’s world.”

Austin’s newest social hub

Due to launch shortly after the wider hotel, Simona’s Coffee + Cocktail Bar will make its debut towards the end of January 2021. Aiming to attract both guests and locals, this casual space will offer a variety of fine teas and coffees, along with high-quality wines and spirits. The hotel has partnered with local purveyors to bring in an eclectic mix of food too, which guests can also enjoy as light bites with cocktails in its lounge, The Parlor.

Elsewhere, the Club Room, situated just off the lobby, provides a space for casual nightcaps and small gatherings, with a kids corner featuring toys, games and books, while the library pairs grand bookshelves with a black walnut table for up to 16 people and audiovisual tools for meetings. There’s also a fitness centre complete with Peloton bikes and a yoga studio.

The 5,000 sq ft Backyard, considered the heart of the hotel, is designed around three 80-year-old oak trees. This outdoor space, which can cater for small events, features a roomy deck with fire pit leading to The Lawn, suitable for games such as lawn bowling, and a heated outdoor swimming pool. Pool service with private cabanas will start being offered here from the spring.

Lastly, a 1,200 sq ft Penthouse event space sits above the hotel’s sprawling outdoor area, connected to a rooftop terrace with stunning views over the Austin skyline and Texas Hill Country.
