OnCongress is a 3,000 sq. ft. luxury loft and event space in the heart of Austin's business and entertainment district. Located on historic Congress Avenue with a stunning view of the Texas State Capitol and the Paramount Theatre, this urban loft is the ideal location for executive stays or attending any of Austin's year-round events including Austin City Limits, the Austin Film Festival, SXSW, Formula One and UT football. Whether you're staying for a festival, off-site business retreat, or a weekend get-away, we've provided every comfort of home... plus a few special extras. Winner of the 2004 AIA Award for Excellence in Design, 706 Congress Ave. was meticulously restored to its original facade with a large balcony directly across from the Paramount Theater, overlooking Congress Avenue all the way to the Capitol. The owners, long-time Austinites and former gallery owners, designed a modern interior including reclaimed wood floors throughout, open staircases, poured concrete counter-tops, a unique split-level layout, and high-end furnishings and artwork. OnCongress is purpose-built as a luxury rental property with amenities such as a full chef's kitchen, living room and lounge, full-size washer/ dryer, and free WiFi. The downstairs game room includes a large screen TV with Xbox, custom-built steel pool table and shuffle board table.

This place was absolutely amazing for my family!
We have a 2 year old and 7 year old and so having a designated parking space and being central in location was perfect for getting around. My kids had plenty of space to run around, and we all loved the layout. We spent our mornings people watching on the patio after getting Starbucks just right down the street. At night, my toddler fell right asleep with the white noise machine provided. We were also able to get a pack n' play delivered by Key Concierge-- which was wonderful. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was great. There is a grocery store across the street which was convenient. My husband and I also had a date night across the street at a wonderful steak house called The Roaring Fork.
The one thing I would say is that the main level bathroom is quite small and there in no tub.
Overall, a wonderful experience was had by all, and we would love to stay here again!
706 Congress is absolutely beautiful. I stayed there with my fiance, leading up to our wedding day. The space is flexible to host impressive gatherings (we hosted a lunch), relax on the patio, and enjoy shooting pool or playing shuffleboard.
The location couldn't have been better. Right in the middle of downtown with direct access to South Congress (just across the bridge) and up towards Zilker Park.
We do a golf trip every year with some old high school friends and this was the perfect place to stay. It is a loft so there's not a ton of privacy but it served us perfectly. Suzanne did a great job helping us coordinate, checking in and checking out was a breeze. We would definitely stay here again if we came back to Austin.
We had a group of friends in town for the weekend and what a great place to host and experience Austin. We walked to 6th Street and restaurants nearby, a very short Uber to Rainey St. and UT campus on game day. There were a few more guests that stayed in hotels right across the street which added to the convenience of the location. Also, the balcony is a nice touch offering a perfect view of the capitol at the end of Congress.
We could not have asked for a better home base for our long weekend in Austin! All of the details were taken care of - from plenty of towels, dishes, and amenities; to the superb location at the heart of the city; to the beautiful floor plan and furnishings. Would rent again in a heartbeat!
A beautiful loft in the middle of everything, unfortunately this means garbage trucks every night between 2 and 4 am emptying garbage bens out side the window of master bedroom. Even earplugs didn't help to stop the noise. The game area was nice, but only three pool sticks that were not broke and no extra sand for the shuffle board table. The sleeping design in lowere area not like pictured, now has a Murphy bed so the sitting area isn't as cohesive to.a large group. The couches that turn into beds in the living areas are very hard. This is really a place for one couple to stay at and entertain unless everyone wants to be up at the same time. The bathroom for the master is down a level and through a sleeping area. No private areas except the bathrooms. The management company was very helpful to get cooking equipment for me to be able to make Christmas dinner, but no soap for any dishwasher, sink or laundry. Very unimpressed with the set up of this loft. We travel using home away a lot and this unit was by far our most expensive and least set up. Great location, but be aware it's loud.
This property is located right in the middle of Historic Congress Avenue. It sits directly across from the Paramount Theatre and is in walking distance to all things downtown Austin.
