Students, we are excited to offer you an exclusive tour of The Proper Hotel [600 W 2nd St, Austin, TX 78701]. This is iconic designer Kelly Wearstler’s fun and funky hospitality project in the Seaholm district near downtown Austin, and we’ll explore common areas of the hotel, the restaurant and some residences. Please meet in the lobby.
11:45 AM - 1:00 PM
Lunch on your own. There are many places in the Seaholm District development to grab a bite.
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
After lunch, take a short walk over to the Ann Sacks showroom [1011 W 5th St, Suite 110, Austin, TX 78703] to discover the latest and greatest in the luxury tile products. From porcelain, ceramic and mosaics to concrete, glass, and stone, you’ll be exposed to a variety of materials for a broad range of applications.
Parking: We highly recommend you ride share, but if you do drive, please carpool. The Proper Hotel will not be able to validate your parking so there will be a charge to park. However, there is free street parking in the area, and there is also paid parking in the nearby Seaholm District development.
