Located in the middle of the Mueller shopping district, the Origin Hotel is equipped with everything you need for a weekend getaway or even a stay-cation. From the moment you pull up to the valet, the employees make you feel at home. In the lobby, you are able to check out bikes to use on the nearby trails. If biking is not for you, the hotel has an amazing gym facility with a view of the shopping district. In this full-functioning gym, guests can find treadmills, bikes, and free weights with a bench.

Once you get to the bedroom, you will find everything you need for your stay. Each room comes with a beautiful view and a coffee machine. The TV’s in the bedrooms let you connect to your streaming platforms so you do not have to worry about missing an episode of any show. One of the most unique features of this hotel is that it is dog friendly! So your furry friends can stay the night with you and feel just as much of a guest as you.

Speaking of dogs, the hotel restaurant Blue Lacy is located downstairs near the lobby. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner – this dining experience is one of a kind. The menu features food such as burgers, breakfast bowls and a fried chicken dinner. They even offer a “for the dogs” menu, so nobody has to feel left out. If you want to go just for drinks, the Watermelon Sugar High is a fan favorite. Seating options are both inside and outside. If you choose to sit outside, there is a beautiful mural to take pictures in front of!

When you are away from the hotel, there are many other bars and restaurants nearby. The Thinkery Museum is across the street, and is popular with the kids. For the adults, Rebel Cheese has wine and cheese boards that make a great snack. The district is lined with many local boutiques to shop at so there is something for everyone.
