You will also receive access to free private gated parking for one car (plus a motorcycle or scooter), if you need it. Since you can walk to everything, you might consider taking the Airport Flyer from Austin Bergstrom International for $1 per person. It picks up and drops off in front of the building every 30 minutes, and will save you the hassle and expense of a rental car or taxi.
There is also an outdoor pool area, and one of the most lively neighborhoods in ATX! If you need assistance with tours, transportation services, or anything else, we are here to help.
Guests will have access to the condo complex, the condo, the secured parking area, the pool area, and the best of downtown Austin.
I like to interact with my guests as much or as little as they would like. I am always available (24/7) to answer questions via email, text, or phone, and I enjoy meeting many of my guests. However, I am also very respectful, and allow my guests to determine how much interaction they would like to have. Ever since I setup automatic door locks, there are some guests that I have not ever met in person. Whatever works best for the guest, works fine for me.
I love that the downtown neighborhood is so vibrant, and provides the ability to walk to the best restaurants, bars, shopping, and nightlife in Austin. The Railyard is in a unique location that is hard to beat. I also appreciate the convenient access to Town Lake for hiking and biking trails, among other things.
In addition to the Airport Flyer that I already mentioned, there are also pedicabs, taxi cabs, light rail, horse-drawn carriages, limousines, and other forms of public transportation within a block that can be easily accessed.
If you are interested in hosting an even larger group, please note that I own and manage a large number of units in the same building complex, as well as some nearby houses. I am happy to host large groups for weddings, convention center trade shows, and other events in Austin.
Ryan was great to work with. He was very prompt to all questions we had and allowed us to get into the condo earlier than check-in. The condo is very nice and the pictures accurately depict it. The only flaws was that the internet only worked sporadically and the condo was dark at night since there are not many lights. In the morning we also ran out of warm water, but we did have 8 girls so that is to be expected. One thing to keep in mind is that the stairs are extremely steep and someone with a fear of heights might not like them. Overall a great experience and highly suggest.
Ryan was a great host. The apartment was fantastic- super clean, hip, and convenient...we walked everywhere! Thanks, Ryan, for giving us a great experience in Austin!
Great condo, Perfect location. Ryan is extremely accommodating and just a great host. Book it!
I had a great experience staying here with friends! Super convenient, really close in, nicely appointed. Ryan was super accommodating and very available. The loft is lovely and we had a fabulous time!
Had a great weekend in Austin! George Strait Concert along with Esther's Follies ~~ The Grand Loft was a perfect location. Thanks so much Ryan for the hospitality with parking and information. Taxis were right across the street when needed and we were only 2 blocks from 6th street. We will be back!
Perfect location for a girl's roadtrip to Austin. The complex felt safe and secure and was very near restaurants, great shopping, nightlife and Towne Lake. The Grand Loft was more than large enough to comfortably accommodate the 6 ladies with us. Beds were very comfortable and the sheets were so super soft! Decor was fun and fresh, enhancing the mood of the weekend. Check-In was a breeze and Ryan was responsive to our needs.
We could not have asked for more and highly recommend Ryan and his Grand Loft for groups visiting Austin.
We were in Austin for a weekend bachelorette party and stayed with a group of 7 in the Grand Loft. The place was perfect for us and made our trip unforgettable. On top of being a beautiful place to stay with funky decor and comfy bedding, the location could not have been better! Located next to great bars, restaurants and shops we never even left the 5-block radius around the apartment. Any time I come back to Austin, I will definitely be booking at the grand loft again. Thanks Ryan!!
This is a small efficiency unit, but if you have something happening at the convention center it is PERFECT. Being an active group it was super that there was laundry. I have stayed at other units in this complex before that did not even compare to Ryan's unit! It was well kept, maintained, fun-ly decorated and felt new. Ryan was a great communicator. This unit is great for up to a group of 8 if you don't mind sharing beds. The only non-ideal thing is that there's really not a good place to sit and eat. Wireless works well.
Thank you so much for staying in my condo, and I appreciate the feedback. You are right about the dining room seating as the small table only accommodates 2-3, There simply wasn't enough room with the spiral staircase near the kitchen to place a larger table. However, I am going to buy some TV trays this week so up to 8 future guests can sit and eat in the same area. Thank you for making me think about that! You are the first person to say something, as I suppose most guests eat out most of the time, but it is still very valid and important. I am going to make sure to fix this immediately. I am glad you enjoyed everything else, and I hope to see you in Austin again soon. All the best,
