- the low-down -
Keeping things weird here in Austin, TX, The Guild is a fresh hospitality concept that empowers travelers to experience their destination as a local, while enjoying the trimmings of a swanky hotel. Think of us as one-part eclectic home, one-part boutique hotel and one-part your hipster cousin who introduces you to that East Side food truck that serves up the tastiest lobster tacos this side of Bangor, Maine.
Since our March 2016 launch, we’ve been off to a blistering start. We’ve raised a few bucks from some impressive investors, grown sales 119% month-over-month and posted some downright glorious profit margins. Far more importantly, with a net promoter score of 86 (yes, you heard that correctly), our customers love what we’re throwing down.
