Meet Louie, Hotel Eleven, Austin Texas, America
MEET THE CAT : LOUIE
With the lovely Mulata from Home Hotel, Louie is the second dashing black cat to make their way to Hotels With Cats and is the second cat in our Americat series, and there is a little story to go with him. We found Louie on Instagram and were going back and forth asking for information from his humans, and Louie went missing! After his adventure he was luckily to return to Hotel Eleven in Austin, Texas to grace the pages of Hotels With Cats. (We know it was really a secret ploy to get more pats).
The legend that is Louie, known fondly as "King Louie" pre-dates Hotel Eleven. He was known in the neighbourhood before he became a hotel cat in training, then a regular. Over the past two years he has risen in the ranks and taken on the role of Head of Security, safely escorting guests to their rooms by way of the elevator. Louie has an insatiable appetite, regardless of the endless Greenie supply, and the Hotel owners deliver daily wet food to him on command. Many guests return to Hotel Eleven for the outstanding cloud-like beds and the rare occasion to enjoy a drink with Louie on the roof top patio. When guests check in, they are briefed on Louie’s Spec Sheet, which details his nickname—King Louie; his jumping ability—4 feet tables, easily; and his likes—people and drinking with a group on the back patio. If guests don’t get the privilege of seeing Louie when they stop by, they always can get a wine cocktail, King Louie, as a consolation prize!
SLEEPING QUARTERS AND FACILITIES
Hotel Eleven is an intimate boutique hotel tucked into Austin’s bustling east side, featuring 14 unique guest rooms, a street-facing café-meets-craft beer & wine bar, three outdoor covered patios and a rooftop with gorgeous 360-degree views of the city. With private and sleek accommodation, Hotel Eleven offers stylish, affordable luxury to guests who want an alternative to traditional, beige hotels—without sacrificing a great location. Mark and Shelly, the owners, travelled far and wide before building a hotel that was full of all the things they appreciated from their travels, and it certainly paid off. This care and attention to detail is reflected in their great reviews.
WHY VISIT AUSTIN, TEXAS?
Aside from the chance of sipping a King Louie cocktail with Louis himself, there is plenty to do in Austin, the capital city of Texas. Swim in natural springs, like Barton Springs and Hamilton Pool, eat a Taco for breakfast, (or dinner as well I might add), go two-stepping and cuddle some rescue kitties at nearby Blue Cat Cafe.
