"'We've created communities around our locations to immerse people in the experience of Austin while delivering all the amenities and services of a hotel.' ...The star treatment begins when a guest walks in the door of their chosen apartment unit and hears the turntable start playing music from an Austin artist. Guests will find the space decorated with local art, and stocked with drinks and other creature comforts preselected for their tastes."

"The perks of staying with The Guild during Formula 1 are endless. First, we offer private rides in an Escalade to the event, so you can avoid surge prices with Lyft and Uber (must reserve in advance and mention during the booking process). Need us to pre-stock your fridge with snacks and breakfast fixings before your arrival? Consider it done. Craving room service? We’ll have Austin’s finest lobster tacos delivered to your door… at a small cost. We don’t believe in nickel and diming our guests. Need a reservation for dinner or a morning spin class? We’ve got you covered."

"Austin calls itself the "Live Music Capital of the World," and with good reason. "Home to both huge festivals, like South by Southwest and Austin City Limits, and many smaller venues, music is a huge part of what keeps Austin weird... The Guild's Red River location is a great place to stay to experience Austin and its music (not to mention each room is outfitted with a record player and the team can customize a personal playlist to have going the second you walk in the door)."

Austin City Guide: Where to Eat, Stay, & Do in East Austin | May 27, 2017
"Our current source of design inspiration is The Guild in Austin, Texas, a new hospitality concept. And it's not just because they use BLIK graphics in their rooms. Like everything in Texas, each property has its own BIG personality, whether bohemian at Lamar Union (above with Damasco N. 2 Pattern Wall Tiles) or touring musician at Red River. The decor is bold and eclectic, and makes us feel right at home."

"How cute is this place?? Guild is a hotel meets apartment. Homey yet chic, decorated with local decor, the idea is to live like a local in a new town. The coolest part is you can text Guild during your stay to get real recommendations from a local. If you want the best coffee, spot for live music, or breakfast taco food truck (and even which taco to get!), they are on it. All that, plus a great rewards program."

The Guild team does an amazing job of providing you with everything you need without stepping into your space and disturbing any of your R&R."
