The 18 Most Anticipated Hotel Openings of 2020

Commodore Perry, Austin Texas (Spring 2020)

Auberge Resorts, the group behind the divine Esperanza in Los Cabos, opens their first urban retreat with the Commodore Perry, opening in Austin’s Hancock neighborhood. The name is a nod to the Italianate mansion’s original owners, Commodore Edgar and Lutie Perry, who used the space to entertain when they weren’t in Europe.

They’ve hired a buzzy creative director to oversee it all: Ken Fulk, the must-have interior designer for Silicon Valley’s tech elite. Expect an eclectic mix of vintage objects, splashes of bright-and-bold color, and some truly curious decor. Do we spy some zebra heads in those renderings?
