Oyster Hotel Review

Archer Hotel Austin


Modern hotel with creative interiors and large outdoor space

The Archer Hotel Austin is housed in an eight-story glass-fronted building. Inside, the decor is an eclectic blend of modern chic with soulful Texan designs. Guests are welcomed into the large open lobby with beautifully curated furniture, bunches of freshly cut flowers, and a large central chandelier. Fireplaces are a cozy touch for the winter months. The hallways are elegantly decorated with gray carpeted floors, textured walls, contemporary artwork, and the occasional floor-to-ceiling mural. Second Bar + Kitchen, the hotel's restaurant, occupies a bright and airy space with multi-floor glass windows and ceiling letting in plenty of light. Following Austin's outdoor patio culture, one of the hotel's main features is its large outdoor patio with a circular swimming pool, poolside bar, large flat-screen TV, fireplace, and seating areas. Overall, the atmosphere is warm, friendly, and relaxed. Its Domain Northside location is popular among leisure travelers interested in shopping, as well as business travelers working in the area.
