About

South Congress Hotel is a boutique hotel located in the heart of Austin鈥檚 iconic South Congress shopping, dining & entertainment district. Locally designed, owned and operated, the hotel features 83 rooms and suites, two restaurants, coffee, juice & bakeshop, pool and lobby bars, and 2,300 sq. ft of dedicated indoor event space surrounded by beautifully landscaped courtyards.

The Event Space features include neutral color tones, floor-to-ceiling windows, an open floor plan, and curated menus by our award-winning culinary team, making it the ideal backdrop for engagement parties, showers, rehearsal dinners, and wedding receptions of up to 150 for a seated meal and 200 for a standing reception.

For an intimate plated meal, we offer the option to buyout one of the Hotel鈥檚 two anchoring restaurants: Caf茅 No S茅, which accommodates up to 50, or Central Standard, which accommodates up to 85.

Gorgeous venue with excellent food and service

South Congress Hotel was the perfect place for our wedding. The location, setting, food, and service are unmatched. Our guests raved about the venue's service along with its delicious appetizers, entrees, and cake. The venue makes it extremely easy to hire quality vendors, and I felt well taken care of throughout the entire planning process. I highly recommend South Congress Hotel!!

Best venue!

We had our wedding at South Congress in September '22 for just under 100 guests and it was absolutely perfect. The SCH team was so helpful; we postponed twice due to the pandemic and SCH was understanding and flexible. The location is fun & so easy for out-of-town guests. Food and drinks were delicious. The courtyard is beautiful for ceremony & cocktail hour.

Pop-up Wedding Perfection

When our daughter had to postpone her big wedding up in the Dallas area due to COVID, they still wanted to get married. Except if they were going to get hitched quick w/ just parents and siblings, they wanted to come back to their hometown of Austin. After looking around at some other venues, we walked into the South Congress Hotel and met Sara. It is hard not to be taken by the aesthetics of the hotel itself but when you meet this event team, we were sold. From start to finish and every question, comment, or request in-between, this is exactly who you need to help you plan a special event. We were short on time to plan and after just fully funding a large wedding, trying to keep the costs down. They did everything they could to work with us, to make the event an incredibly special one. Not just for the bride and groom either but for our families as well, we are still on cloud nine. To say they succeeded would be an understatement. The staff of this hotel was the friendliest and happiest I have ever come across. These are people who love what they do and where they're working. The food, the rooms, every single part of this experience was first-class. So thank you SoCo Hotel for a night we will never forget. A very special thanks to Sara and Candace b/c we literally could not have done this without you. You were a blast to work with and our calm through the storm. We could not be happier.
