World-Class Art

The Loren at Lady Bird Lake features an art collection that — with its symbiosis of color, natural light, and architecture — reflects the hotel’s organic integration with its exterior setting. In the lobby, Liam Gillick’s wall sculpture and Sarah Braman’s repurposed chairs with glass cube both react to the changing exterior light throughout the day, providing ever-transforming networks of reflections and refractions. In the restaurant, Olafur Eliassen’s dynamic color wheels offer a nod to Austin’s Ellsworth Kelly Chapel, which is famed for its melding of architecture and color with the intense Austin light that pours inside. In the hotel's guest rooms, Karl Blossfelt’s precise photos of plants that often look like ornamental ironworks demonstrate the principle that essential forms in nature are reproduced in art and architecture.

Unforgettable Views From Every Vantagepoint

Stunning views are a signature of your Loren experience. Expanses of dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass blur the distinction between inside and out, offering guests breathtaking northern views of the lake and city skyline, and western views across the park. A glass elevator direct from the lobby to our rooftop restaurant rises through the trees, welcoming local guests and visitors to enjoy the unforgettable panoramic lake and skyline vistas from our rooftop. Our communal spaces offer dramatic panoramic views from every vantage point through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Music at The Loren

Just as one might choose one playlist for a lively Saturday afternoon poolside and another for a relaxing after-dinner chat with friends over cocktails, The Loren’s musical programming changes with the time and place. Throughout the day, guests encounter different musical spaces as they move through the property—from upbeat and energetic to soothing and soulful.

A stay at The Loren at Lady Bird Lake isn’t complete without enjoying the “Live Music Capital of the World.” In addition to the limitless venues throughout downtown, guests can experience live music without leaving the hotel, when local musicians join us for exclusive concerts on our rooftop terrace.
