Hyatt Unveils Two New Lifestyle Hotels in Austin

Hyatt recently delivered two distinctive new experiences to Austin. Thompson Austin and tommie Austin are both located within a new mixed-used development in the Texas city’s downtown area.

The 212-room Thompson Austin radiates a rebellious spirit with exteriors from Chicago-based bKL Architecture and interiors by KTGY + Simeone Deary Design Group that yield a “very different, very unexpected perspective as a design narrative for the city and the hotel,” says KTGY principal Lisa Simeone. “The vibe of the space is cool and chic and a bit swanky.”

Concrete walls line the property’s common areas, while elements like a front desk inspired by raw cut gemstones and a shou sugi ban-style ceiling finishes nod to the local landscape. A bold combination of mixed metals, soft leather finishes, and greenery infuse warmth across the Brutalist-inspired interior as well. A pool deck, 6,700-square-foot wellness center, and more than 10,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor event space rounds out the onsite amenities. Guestrooms and suites also echo the sleek, loft-like intimacy of the lobby.

Part of the JdV by Hyatt banner, tommie Austin promotes community through a design by California-based Studio Collective. The playful urban concept channels the high desert of West Texas with abundant natural elements, tactile finishes, Southwestern-inspired materials, and textures teamed with bold, geometric patterns. “We looked heavily to the nearby region of the West Texas plains and the burgeoning city of Marfa,” says Studio Collective partner and design director Christian Schulz.

The interiors are lined with honey oak ceilings and dark limestone floors, which contrast hand-blackened steel details and handmade glazed terracotta furnishings. Public spaces on the fourth floor, like Wax Myrtle’s Club & Pool, further channel laidback Lone Star aesthetics with warm white oak, natural undyed leather wall tiles, and a mezcal bar cut from a large slab of Texas Pecan. Each of the 193 king guestrooms feature panoramic murals that animate the chambers with vistas of the area’s landscape as well.
