A shrine to the patron saint of music and poetry, this converted historic home makes for a quiet getaway near the heart of hip SoCo. It has a fun, exclusive vibe: Beat writers and 1960s rock musicians are the prevailing spirits. A neon sign near the pool, which is surrounded by lush greenery, reads “Soul”; the rooms—five suites, three studios, and six swanky poolside bungalows—nod to the rock gods with Rega retro-style turntables and Geneva sound systems, the better to listen to vinyl albums from the hotel’s music library. The hotel concierge can arrange for you to rent a Gibson guitar or have your hair done in-room before you hit the hot clubs. Suites have nice features—#4 has a yard and outdoor fireplace, #5 an upright piano, #2 an outdoor bamboo shower—but the poolside bungalows are cozier. Mattresses from Sweden and organic spa products add to the cachet. Celebrities visiting Austin often stay at the Four Seasons, but some hide out in the bungalows here—which require a celebrity bankroll on weekends (rates on weekdays are lower). If you’re beyond millennial age and looking for a splurge, you might be better off buying a book of Allen Ginsburg’s poems, loading some Stones onto your iPhone, and going for the Four Seasons.
