The Frances Modern Inn – Austin Lesbian Owned Hotel

The Frances Modern Inn

Award-Winning Austin Lesbian Owned Hotel

We are The Frances Modern Inn (formerly The Cat Noir Hotel): an award-winning Austin lesbian owned hotel located in the heart of vibrant East Austin. Our namesake, Louie, the black cat, greets you at check-in and roams the outdoor patios while he waits for his next meal.

Our rooms and suites range in size to suit all travelers. Each room is uniquely styled with high-end custom walnut furnishings and handpicked details. 

Our design embraces a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor space throughout the hotel with open-air hallways, in-suite balconies, a 360-view rooftop lounge, and a private courtyard. 

We are a keyless property and use a unique numeric door code for each reservation. The ability to check yourself in, gives our guests traveling flexibility. We offer complimentary parking both on our property and in our off-site lot just down the street.

The lobby features local favorite Uncle Nicky’s, offering a full bar and restaurant to enjoy all-day libations and food. Just outside our doors, the neighborhood boasts countless restaurants, shops, bars, and green spaces to enjoy the often-beautiful Austin, Texas weather.
