I don’t usually need to find accommodations when I travel to Austin because I have so many friends that live there, but one year my company had our annual retreat in ATX and reserved rooms at The Parker (now known as The Chelsea) while we were there. This is not a hotel. It is an apartment complex in fact, but you can still find listings to stay here on Air Bnb.
I fell in love with all the charming details of this place. Everything from the painted typographic sign on the side of the building to the vintage airstream with red wheels parked in the parking lot. But the most impressive part of this place is, hands down, the central courtyard. we hung out a lot in this courtyard while we were there. We used the big outdoor table to eat breakfast together and have a team meeting, and even sat around the fire pit one night, drinking wine and making s’mores under the twinkling string lights. If you are looking for a relaxing, weekend getaway spot while in Austin, I would definitely recommend The Chelsea.
