AUSTIN, Texas—Hyatt Centric Congress Avenue Austin announced that the 31-story hotel in downtown Austin is set to open, along with restaurant Luminaire and bar Las Bis, in February 2023.

Hyatt Centric Congress Avenue Austin will be located steps from the Texas Capitol and in the middle of the downtown arts and culture district. The property has 246 guestrooms, including 5 suites. Next door to the hotel are two historic buildings, the Paramount (1915) and State (1935) theatres, and the hotel’s designers, Nelsen Partners and UCO Studio, weave the spirit of these Austin-area venues and the city into many areas throughout the property.

The hotel’s interior spaces evoke a modern gallery inspired by Austin’s style with nods to the city’s music and arts scenes, and show an art collection created by artists from the Austin area and beyond. Among some of the hotel’s artistic touches are the use of guitar-amp nightstands, vintage concert posters from the theatres in guestrooms, and the “Recording Lounge,” which is one of the meeting rooms offering a space for social gatherings or executive meetings.

The third floor of the hotel is dedicated to 2,560 square feet of meeting and event space, with hardwood floors, technology, and floor-to-ceiling windows An additional 1,400 square feet of event space is also available on the 31st floor, which is the hotel’s penthouse named the “Artist Residence.” Inspired by an artist’s loft, in addition to space for private functions, it has full living and dining areas with an outdoor deck.


“We’re so excited to welcome guests in to experience the hotel. The team has worked hard to imbue the hotel with comfort and convenience while embodying the spirit and artistic inspiration of Austin,” said Harrison Compton, general manager of Hyatt Centric Congress Avenue Austin. “And we can’t wait for Austin residents to come see us at Luminaire and Las Bis. We hope to become a major destination in the city’s already amazing restaurant and bar scenes.”

The hotel will also be an attraction for city residents with the hotel’s dining and bar concepts. Luminaire will be San Antonio chef Steve McHugh’s first Austin restaurant, occupying the full ground floor of the hotel. Guests checking in will head up to the eighth floor to the hotel’s lobby alongside Las Bis. Chef McHugh’s team will oversee food and beverage for banquets at the hotel as well as in-room dining.

Hyatt Centric Congress Avenue Austin also includes a fitness center, Pelotons, and a tribute to professional boxer Matt Martinez of Matt’s El Rancho including a punching bag and his portrait. There will also be Drybar hair dryers, Nespresso coffee makers, BeeKind bath amenities, and JBL Bluetooth speakers in the guestrooms.
