The tommie Austin is an urban hotel experience designed to encourage guest interaction and serve as an epicenter for creativity and adventure. The hotel features 193 king guest rooms that feature Southwest-inspired materials and textures combined with bold geometric patterns. Rooms also showcase dramatic panoramic images shot by celebrated local photographer Kenny Braun, including West Texas scenes such as the Guadalupe Mountain Range and Big Bend Ranch State Park.
The tommie Austin was created for functionality, with contactless check-in and keyless mobile entry through the World of Hyatt app. Eschewing the traditional hotel lobby, the tommie instead welcomes guests with The Coffee Bar, a youthful all-day coffee shop that features Austin-based roaster Greater Goods Coffee Co. Doubling as a casual wine bar and go-to happy hour spot, guests can also enjoy a curated menu of local and natural wines that celebrate the region, craft beer from Austin breweries and a collection of playful retail.

On the ground level is The Grey Market, helmed by James Beard Award-winning executive chef Mashama Bailey and her partner John O. Morisano.
