Mint House Austin – South Congress There’s tons of space to work, relax, and invite friends over for dinner. Big thumbs up for the comfy couch being a pop of colour

Mint House Austin – South Congress Spacious heated pool that can be used almost year-round in Austin. I visited in February so didn’t have the chance to jump in quite yet

Highs & Lows

  • Incredible central location to explore the city, but the apartment itself was quiet with a view of nature

  • A laundry room! What an awesome surprise to pop in some laundry for clean clothes on a multi-stop trip

  • I felt like I slip into the life of a local within seconds but it was even better because I had the support of the Mint House tech and team behind me to help

  • Pre-stocked groceries and space for workouts make it simple to feel healthy and keep up with my routines. (Some apartments come with the interactive home gym, MIRROR!)

  • The exact unit took me a while to find as it was located within a large building

    In the heart of the action

  • Rooms

    3

  • Pre-Arrival Experience

    The check-in process was seamless with Mint House communicating all instructions for how to reach the building and access the apartment. Keyless entry made it super easy to enter the apartment on a flexible timeline

  • Future Forward

    Reduces plastic with bulk bathroom amenities and Boxed Water. No plastic keycards with digital check in and smart thermostats that reduce energy use! More than 50% less CO2 emissions than a luxury hotel

    A tablet to stream music from my own device

  • Year Opened

  • Designed By

    Thoughtfully designed by Mint House team

  • Health & Wellness

    The apartment building has an outdoor pool and well-equipped gym

  • Food

    Local snacks, Boxed Water, and coffee were waiting for me in the kitchen upon arrival and there was the option of pre-ordering groceries through Mint House’s ‘Stock Your Stay’ pre-stocking service to have groceries waiting in the refrigerator upon arrival

  • Bar, Events & Nightlife

    The apartment was located steps away from some of the best restaurants and bars in Austin including Soho House, Aba, and Homeslice Pizza

  • Minibar & Retail

    The apartment was stocked with snacks and I hear there’s a new program in which every apartment becomes a native retail space where guests can actually purchase the same products that they use in the house from decor to amenities directly from their phone

  • Accessibility

    Accessible for those with physical and hearing impairments with elevators to reach the unit. Not very accessible for seeing impairments through the check-in process right now

  • Pet Friendly

    The perfect place to bring a pet as there’s at least 3x the space of a regular hotel room

  • Children

    Yes

  • Price

    Great value considering that you are walking into a perfectly designed and equipped home with a full kitchen and living space as well as access to a 24/7 digital concierge
