I just returned from my first SXSW. I stayed at the Austin Motel in SoCo, which is almost too hip for it's own good as evidenced by the fact that almost everything in design*sponge's Austin Design Guide was within a one mile radius. If you ever go to Austin, and you should, stay at the Austin Motel. The water pressure in the shower was nothing to write home about but the wonderful people at the front desk (seriously more helpful and friendly than any Ritz I've stayed at), the unique room decor, the adorable kidney shaped pool, the adjacent El Sol y La Luna restaurant, and the neighborhood make up for it a hundred times over.

I'll share more once I've unpacked.
