Location

Austin has its finger on the pulse of cool, and its boutique offerings are no exception—meticulously crafted for a globetrotting clientele, whether they're sightseers or industry magnates.


Tucked into South Austin, the verdant Zilker neighborhood is a graceful junction between the tranquil Barton Springs and the energetic thrum of downtown. It's here, under a canopy of pecan trees, that the Carpenter Hotel emerges as a peaceful retreat, merely a stone's throw from Austin's renowned landmarks.


With attractions like Zilker Park, the Barton Creek Greenbelt, and the Ann and Roy Butler Hike & Bike Trail nearby, it's wise to come prepared with sturdy shoes.

Design

Stepping into the Carpenter Hotel is like leafing through the pages of history. Originally erected in 1948 as the Carpenters Local 1266 Union Hall, its bones whisper tales of yesteryears.


Then Bunkhouse came along—a maestro of crafting hospitality experiences that resonate deeply with their surroundings.


With the architectural expertise of Specht Architects, interiors touched by Bunkhouse, and the landscape envisioned by Word + Carr, the building's soul remains true—original windows, doors, wood veneer, and vitrines all preserved. Meanwhile, it's 'Old Texas' heart is showcased through curated vintage gems from The Renner Project and Nashville's Eneby Home.

Food & Drink

The Carpenters Hall is an airy and luminous space, allowing diners a glimpse into the culinary theater helmed by Executive Chef Jeffrey Hundelt. Here, the menu sings a vegetable-forward ode seasoned with Texan nuances, promising a dining affair that's both relaxed and sophisticated.


At the bar, an eclectic menu awaits, featuring organic, biodynamic wines, whimsically curated liquors, and a splash of local brews.


Whether you're lounging poolside or enjoying the comfort of your room, the entire menu is at your beck and call. And for those caffeine or cocktail aficionados, The Carpenter Coffee Bar in the lobby shifts seamlessly from daytime espressos, teas, and tacos to nocturnal craft concoctions and nibbles.
