Another Hotel Checks In on Congress Avenue
The Hideout has seen the future and it's a 32-story hotel

BY AMY SMITH, FRI., AUG. 1, 2014

With few options left for opponents to secure concessions from a developer, a proposal for a new Downtown hotel heads to City Council Aug. 7 for approval of a zoning change. Plans call for rezoning 619 ConĀ­gress, which houses Wholly Cow Burgers, and demolishing the circa-1850 building to accommodate a 32-story boutique hotel on the property and an adjoining surface lot, home of the Kebabalicious food truck. The hotel will be called Aloft & Element Austin Downtown.

The proposal has won the recommendations of several city commissions that reviewed the plans.
