The Best-Designed New Hotels of 2020

Commodore Perry Estate, Auberge Resorts Collection, Austin, Texas

Opening in March 2020 is a treasured historic landmark reborn with a resort-style sensibility in an idyllic section of the Texas city. Located in the neighborhood of Hancock Park, this traditional property that dates back to 1927 has only 42 rooms and 12 suites, complete with a chapel and gardens. Designed by Ken Fulk, the resort boasts a varied history: It housed several private schools as well as a convent. Rooms echo the history of the place (cheeky names like the Maid’s Room help guests relive a bit of the period vibe).
