About This Property:

Tucked away within the heart of Austin, Texas (just north of downtown, in the Hancock Park neighborhood), on 10 secluded, walled acres of manicured gardens and lawns, the Commodore Perry Estate is one of the few hotels in the U.S. that has managed to open during the outbreak of COVID-19—and it has certainly managed well. Bright, sunny and oh-so-pretty, the Commodore Perry Estate offers the escape we all need right now: fragrant gardens for wandering, with distance; lemon-yellow striped umbrellas, which protect matching lounges that are spaced around a circular pool that invites you in for a quick cool-off; European-style open porches that overlook green lawns, where you can reserve a private picnic and enjoy local treats like cold fried chicken and Bee’s Knees cocktails, complete with your own gingham blanket; plush, four-poster beds fit for royalty; and an entertainment concept that serves up the best of Austin’s applauded live music and farm-to-table restaurant scenes. The property is imbued with just enough youth to feel exciting, but its true soul is glamorous and Old-World, thanks to the work of designer Ken Fulk, who honored the original mansion’s Italian Renaissance Revival roots with a wealth of antique pieces, as well as Spanish Colonial touches (it is also worth noting that the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places). There are nearly 11,000 square feet to explore inside, and the hotel staff have been observing the social distancing and sanitization procedures that are now commonplace across hotels worldwide. History buffs will enjoy poking around the library to learn about the mansion’s first owner, Edgar Howard “Commodore” Perry, while music-lovers can avail themselves of the Listening Room, where vinyl records can be paired with a glass of small-batch bourbon (or mezcal, or Texas Whisky, or Napa Valley’s finest) for an afternoon of relaxation. And of course, wellness devotees are cared for here, as well: a broad range of fitness and meditation classes are on offer, and can be booked for outdoor exercise in a variety of settings around the grounds. For a first foray back into the world of travel, the Commodore Perry Estate promises a good time.
