6 Reasons to Stay at the Archer Hotel

Introducing the Archer Hotel at The Domain NORTHSIDE.


Archer Hotel Austin
3121 Palm Way

Grab hold of the keys to the castle at the Archer Hotel Austin, now open for rezzies. The eight-story boutique hotel is the newest place to chic out for a sleepover. We checked in to find six reasons wild horses couldn't keep you away from this staycation spot.

1. The restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel is none other than Second Bar + Kitchen. Walk-ins can sip and sup from chef David Bull's delish menu within the well lit windowed space, and hotel guests can order snacks and drinks to the circular pool and surrounding plush cabanas as well as room service 24/7. 

2. Catering to local labels, you'll find decadent, Austin-themed Maggie Louise Confections and eclectic necklaces from Raven + Lily in the lobby for purchase, and a treatment collaboration with Viva Day Spa. 

3. Caught carrying your wine glass properly by the stem when heading up to your room? The hotel staff will gift you with a good manners card that scores you discounts at the bar. 

4. Mini bars are stacked with local libations as well as a themed cocktail card with suggestions. Want to use that Tito's to make a Texas Mule? Call downstairs and up will come the ginger beer, lime and shaker to complete the picture. 

5. Expect a nightly turn down service that's worth opening the door for after you've taken a soak in your free-standing tub - complete with a rubber ducky waiting. The blinds will be drawn, mood lighting set and a nightly treat placed sweetly next to your pillow. 

6. Instagram shots abound throughout the hotel - fire pits on the terrace, "Hey Baby, Que Paso" neon signs, a sweeping circular staircase with a huge galloping horse mural and the glittering, crystal-clad, 18-foot iron chandelier adorned with strands of more than 10,000 crystals to wow.
