We loved staying at the Heywood last weekend: Kathy and her staff are warm and welcoming, our room was fabulous, and the hotel is just bliss. It is everything you would ever want of a small boutique hotel. And more.
We lived in Austin for two years, and so we're a bit biased against the craziness of 6th Street. The real Austin is a sleepy, charming, smaller Austin composed of neighborhoods just like East Austin. Staying at the Heywood gives you a much better sense of the what Austin is really like, and it's location is perfect - you can get downtown in a heartbeat, you can walk down to the hike and bike trail (recommended) and you can also walk to several of the best restaurants in the city. All without the noise and chaos that has increasingly taken over downtown. Also, they have incredibly comfortable beds and the best bathroom toiletries of any hotel around. A new favorite.
