I stayed at the Heywood with 12 of my friends for a weekend. We were able to rent out the whole hotel so it was totally private.

The location was ideal. Just a few blocks from some of the best BBQ, tacos and coffee shops Austin has to offer and a bit away from the rowdiness of 6th St.

The staff was extremely courteous and friendly. They were always ready to offer us advice on eating, drinking and other activities. We were welcomed with complimentary beers in our fridges.

The rooms were beautiful. I believe most of them have windows on 3 out of 4 walls and even skylights. The beds are high quality and I appreciated the white noise machines provided in each room.

On our first trip to Austin we decided that we wanted to choose a hotel that was like Austin - funky but nice - and not a big box hotel. The Heywood is that and more. It's small, only 7 rooms, and high end. The staff is exceptionally nice and welcoming, and meet your every need. Just say what you want and they'll get on it. It's tucked into a neighborhood, but still very convenient to anywhere you want to go. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. I loved sitting on the shared patio and having coffee every morning. A truly lovely place. We highly recommend it!

Spent wonderful 3 day weekend in Austin TX. Stayed at great boutique hotel in East Austin called the Heywood. We were 3 couples and stayed at this perfect place with 7 contemporary rooms and had wonderful outside patio sitting area . The rooms were spacious and very clean. The staff, including Maris and Margaret, were unbelievably helpful with restaurant suggestions and activities. The hotel has bicycles that can be used by guests. The hotel location is near the Lady Bird Johnson Park and Margaret gave us a great 7 mile bike route that had a beautiful site of the city. Hotel in walking distance to terrific breakfast taco truck, special pizza at Bufalina, drinks and super music at White Horse Bar. Don't miss dinner at Emmer and Rye., Jazz at Elephant Room, breakfast /lunch at Dai Due. Wonderful weekend for couples . Can't wait to come back to this hotel again!

What a little gem of a hotel, in a great area of a great city. Loved the hotel and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. They offered lots of recommendations for things to do and places to eat & drink which I'm really glad we followed. They have bikes available too which we used to take a quick spin along the lake trail - well worth it. Highly recommend.

We live in Austin and booked a night at the Heywood as a much-needed break from deadlines at work and a construction project at home. It’s amazing how well it worked! We felt like we were on a luxurious, slightly adventurous, and wholly relaxing getaway.

Our king patio was spacious, comfortable, stylish, spotless. The private patio was great for reading & chatting, and we enjoyed the twinkly lights at night. The shared patio, too, is gorgeous—I admire whoever does their gardening.

The Heywood seems to think of everything—complimentary Shiner beers started the evening off right; we enjoyed talking restaurants with Maris (we walked to dinner at Launderette and half a block away for espresso and tacos in the morning); the pillows are now on my must-have list; the bed was super comfy; two elegant, local chocolates were a thoughtful bedtime treat. The tub is nice and deep, and I loved the morning light from the skylight on the shower walls.

This is the exact type of spot we like to stay when we travel to any city. A cool spot in a neighborhood with character and great walkability. Thanks, Heywood, for making us feel perfectly pampered.
