"We had a great stay at Hotel San Jose; the architecture, furniture and plant life made a perfect environment for shooting our clothing and capturing our lifestyle,” Sargent says. “There was agave, cactus, bamboo and ivy nestled alongside modern cement architecture, wood benches and leather chairs.”
"This urban bungalow—think concrete floors and minimal furnishings—is, unequivocally, a scene."
"Book yourself a room at the effortlessly cool Hotel San Jose (1316 South Congress Ave.), where you can hang out by the pool, or burnish your hipster cred by borrowing one of the typewriters or Polaroids they keep on hand for guests."
"This minimalist hotel, originally built as a 1930s motor court, now brings a sense of simplicity and calm to its guests. The Hotel San José has a private garden courtyard with a lounge and pool. Yes, you can find your way to the Hotel San José—it’s in the popular South Congress district."
"At Austin’s Hotel San Jose (yes, it rhymes with frosé), Bar Manager Breezy Mayo uses a frozen drink machine to crank these out for thirsty travelers. She adapted the recipe here to make at home in a blender with lemonade-flavored ice cubes, ideal for poolside get-togethers with friends."
"The 40 rooms have since morphed into tranquil digs with a Texas-meets-Tokyo design aesthetic (picture concrete floors and custom kimonos alongside vintage music posters and leather chairs). Accommodations range from modest shared-bath rooms to suites overlooking the hotel’s pool and ivy-covered courtyard (a favorite meeting place for locals)."
