About South Congress Hotel

South Congress Hotel is a boutique hotel located in the heart of Austin’s 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’s two anchoring restaurants: Café No Sé, which accommodates up to 50, or Central Standard, which accommodates up to 85.

    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.

    Incredible Venue and Experience

    Our wedding at South Congress Hotel was a dream come true and none of it would have been possible without the one and only, Sara Ruddle. Sara is an excellent communicator and event planner. Without her help, our wedding would not have been the same. She answered my millions of questions in a timely manner, which led to less stress on my end. Guests raved about the venue and food from Cafe No Sé (the Hotel’s restaurant.) The food was incredible and worth the price. Our stay at the hotel afterwards was equally incredible. We look forward to returning for anniversaries.

    Absolutely amazing!

    We had an intimate wedding at the South Congress Hotel and it was more than perfect. The coordinator, Sara, took care of everything and made sure I was a stress free bride. 10/10 highly recommend!
