Habitat Suites: A Unique Home-Away-From-Home Experience in Central Austin Neighborhood

What's a Habitat Suites Room Include?

Surrounded by native Texan flora, Habitat Suites offers guests all the comforts of a hotel but with the feel of a private residence. Each suite has a private bedroom and bathroom, separate living area and kitchen (which comes with a stove), cooking equipment, and local organic coffee. The rooms are in good condition, comfortable, and clean, and they have private external entrances. There are even fireplaces available upon request.

What Amenities Are Available?

Habitat Suites Hotel is actually a re-purposed apartment complex, so each unit gives you the privacy of having your own apartment. One great feature is the outdoor saltwater pool, which sits in the complex's garden. The hotel offers a complimentary buffet breakfast in the dining area, free WiFi in public areas, free parking, concierge, laundry service, and a 24-hour front desk. Habitat Suites is committed to sustainability so the garden is  pesticide free. 

How Much Will a Stay at Habitat Suites Cost Me?

A room here will cost you around $100 for a standard one-bedroom suite. For a family or larger group, there are also two-bedroom suites available for $150. These prices include a buffet breakfast. This is a good value and provides an affordable alternative to the usual four-star chain hotels, which generally start at around $200 per night, and cheap Austin hotels, which offer very few amenities. 

What's the Bottom Line?

Overall, Habitat Suites Hotel offers excellent value in a reasonably central location. Being a former apartment complex means that it feels much more like home than other places in the city. The interior might be a little dated for some people's tastes, and the strip club next door may put some people off, but the place more than makes up for it with its excellent breakfast, friendly staff, relaxing outdoor areas, and lush gardens.
