Last week I was driving down Cesar Chavez on the east side of Austin and I came upon the Heywood Hotel.
Simply put, I love how it looked. So I went online and now I'm dying to stay there. There are only seven rooms, but they're all well-appointed, but not in that homogenized way you get with big hotels.
Each room clearly has its own personality. While staying here, you can borrow the Heywood's bikes to buzz through east Austin. Think Franklin BBQ, Big Red Sun, and Domy Books.
Sounds like a perfect day to me.
