Went to Austin for a much needed vacay and came across Saint Cecelia via some blog reviews. I checked it out and loved the vibe of it so much that I immediately booked a stay there for two nights. Upon arriving at the hotel, I felt like I was walking into an oasis. The grounds have a very Los Angeles/Chateau... More

The bar patio was right outside my bedroom window in the "big house." Management was polite and I was promised the "party" would be over at 11:00. Didn't happen. Had to leave the hotel and find another near midnight just to get sleep. I guess the bar tab was more attractive than my room rate. Bad layout I guess. Nice... More

We were welcomed by the staff here who knew our names when we arrived and told me happy birthday (they had asked my husband when he made the reservations if there was a special occasion). Our room was gorgeous but comfortable with a private patio overlooking the courtyard. There were cookies waiting for us on our table, they give you... More

I thought this hotel was a very nice boutique hotel in Austin. Here's how my visit breaks down: PROS: Best part of this hotel is that it gives you a resort-feel in the middle of a city. The rooms are nicely decorated and the grounds are very enjoyable. Each room has a record player and you can borrow vinyls from... More

we were warmly welcomed to the hotel. i was a bit worried as the hotel seemed very "cool" and "hip" and was fearful our brood of 3 small children (6, 4 and 2ys) would kill the vibe. actually it was the opposite, we were made to feel very welcome and our room was made up nicely to make it a... More

The Hotel Saint Cecelia is a great place. My girlfriend is from Austin and I had never been there. I had no desire to stay near 6th street and I am very glad we didn't. The South Congress area is the only place that you should stay if you would like to spend your time at someplace original that has... More

I live in Ausitn so I normally don't do any reviews here to avoid perception of bias, but thought I'd review our anniversary "staycation" at Saint Cecilia from back in July. We've stayed at the group's sister properties in San Antonio and have had drinks numerous times at Hotel San Jose - always impressed. Saint Cecilia is an amazing property... More
