About Hotel Saint Cecilia

Number of rooms: 14 (total hotel capacity: 28 adults) Event capacity: up to 125 people The Hotel Saint Cecilia sits in a renovated Victorian home near the Colorado River in Austin, Texas.

Number of rooms: 14 (total hotel capacity: 28 adults) Event capacity: up to 125 people The Hotel Saint Cecilia sits in a renovated Victorian home near the Colorado River in Austin, Texas. Once owned by the descendants of American legend Davy Crockett, the building was renovated in 2008 and turned into a boutique hotel. Saint Cecilia oozes charm and uniqueness. It would be an attractive accommodation option no matter where it was located. But its actual location adds to its allure. The hotel sits in Travis Heights, a quiet area that is only a block away from the South Congress District, where Austin’s world famous music venues and buzz-worthy restaurants are located. Named for Cecilia, the patron saint of art and poetry, this inn’s ambiance and design are inspired by the musicians, artists and cultural icons of the 1960s and ‘70s. The decor brings to mind the era of the Rolling Stones and Hunter S Thompson, while the luxury and privacy of the entire property make it one of the best hotel options in all of Austin in terms of both comfort and personality. The welcoming blue-hued lobby, the lush grounds and the 50-foot heated pool and adjacent arbor were all designed with this balance of luxury and counterculture hipness in mind. Hotel Saint Cecilia has five suites, three studios and six poolside bungalows. Each spacious suite has Victorian-inspired furnishings and unique decor. Private porches or closed-off gardens mean that guests who choose a suite can enjoy both the indoors and outdoors. The beds, some of the most comfortable you will ever lay on, come from Hästens, a world-famous Swedish company that uses only organic products. The studios, located on the second floor of the property, also have unique designs in every room. Classic furnishings and comfortable beds provide a welcoming and stylish living space, while the private terraces bring the beauty of the grounds to guests despite the upper-floor location. The six poolside bungalows are perfect for people seeking a little extra living space. Equipped with the same furnishings as the other accommodation options, these rooms boast spacious private indoor and outdoor seating areas. Bathrooms in every room are stocked with kimonos and designer bath and spa products from Le Labo. In-room minibars are filled with local and imported food and beverages, and guests can borrow vintage LPs and classic poetry anthologies and novels from the “Lending Library.” Hotel Saint Cecilia’s concierge service can help guests plan outings to some of Austin’s most iconic music venues, best attractions and most delicious eateries. The hotel hosts a limited number of special events annually. The grounds can accommodate up to 125 guests. The number of events is purposely kept low to help maintain the tranquility of the estate. What to do Lounge by the pool or relax on your own private patio or terrace. Arrange memorable Austin experiences with Saint Cecilia’s concierge. Listen to a record from the lending library.
