Fun stroll with trailer food, neat stores and many Austin icons. The Monkey See toy store is silly and slightly naughty, there's also a candy store, Allens boots, and the I Love You this much mural. Not to be missed if you travel to Austin.
SoCo as the locals call it, is a great place to wander. Fab shops, and my favourite Café is Magnolia Café. Hop Doddy is there too and have super burgers. If you want Cowboy Boots - SoCo is the place to go - I think...More

We stopped by SoCo on Columbus day, and the streets were bustling with tourists and locals alike. There were plenty of cute little funky shops, coffee shops, and Instagram worthy picture spots. Definitely, plan on a few hours to be able to walk the whole...More
To have a chance to get a taste of the "real Austin", the visitors center recommended that I visit SOCO, South Congress Ave. So we took off for that area, and thoroughly enjoyed spending some time here. Make sure you take your pic in from...More

There are several on or just off of S. Congress, mostly boutique hotels. The exception is the South Congress Hotel, a full-service hotel right in the middle of the S.Congress activity. Boutique hotels include the Austin Motel, a 50s style motel that has been renovated; the Hotel San Jose; a motel renovated to a modern rock style; Kimber Modern, about 1 block off of S.Congress; and Hotel St.Cecelia, about 2 blocks off of S.Congress.
There are a few B&Bs and any number of short-term rentals, often homes, that are closer than the downtown hotels.
Other places listed in earlier responses are NOT on S.Congress - Driskill, Embassy Suites, Staybridge, Wood Spring and Omni.

Every Wed-Sunday there is free live music at Guero's on S Congress. Every Sunday there is free music at Jo's Coffee shop, just down the street from Gueros. At various times of the year, you can find free music at auditorium shores. If you google "free music in Austin" you can find all kinds of cool, free, fun stuff in Austin.
