Gold Key – Guestroom Upper Midscale
The Highlights: An extension of the University of Texas Austin campus, the Otis Hotel was designed to bridge the traditional aesthetic of academia with the city’s rich history and free-spirited culture. Defined by a sense of easygoing luxury, it pays tribute to the music scene, local artists, and vintage schoolroom touches.
Finishes such as oak, chalkboard, brass, and corkboard are carried from the public spaces to the guestrooms. Each is complete with a vinyl record player, vintage-inspired speakers, and a gallery wall of artwork embodying Austin’s history.
