The 41 Best New Hotels in North America and Europe for 2024

April 9, 2024

Breakfast tacos, smoky barbecue, and live music beckon in Austin. But the 108-room Loren gives you just as many reasons to stay put (especially when it’s blazing outside). Cool down in the café with a margarita or a frozen espresso martini, or admire the sweeping skyline from the rooftop pool or from the restaurant Nido as you indulge in an octopus carpaccio, or take in Lady Bird Lake through the floor-to-ceiling windows of your stylish mid-century-modern room.

Where To Stay In The Lap Of Luxury At F1 Races Around The World

April 2, 2024

Head to Austin’s hottest hotel, The Loren at Lady Bird Lake, for a stay that feels like a much-needed respite from the hustle and bustle of action downtown, but in reality, is a mere footbridge jaunt away. (For those who truly value their peace and quiet during the understandably hectic race days, it is a simply unbeatable location.) This gorgeous property is a glorified greenhouse in the park, complete with an art collection curated by Penny Aaron, destination rooftop restaurant Nido, the milk + honey spa, a 24/7-access fitness center, and, best of all, an expansive terrace with an infinity pool.

January 9, 2024

I stayed at The Loren at Lady Bird Lake, a hotel that’s perched on the edge of the water overlooking downtown Austin. It’s less than 10 minutes on foot (or 3 minutes by car) from Casa de Luz and is what I like to call a "five-star-plus" hotel. It’s got all the five-star perks you’d expect: great service, beautiful rooms, high-end decor, and a great location — plus a glass elevator leading to a rooftop restaurant, rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, a lobby that’s dripping in art, and real plants everywhere you look. It’s glamorous without being stuffy. And that goes for the service too.
