First class in every way, plus the added surprise of a beautiful floral bouquet and wine in our poolside room on arrival. Breakfast was perfect too with crepes and great pressed coffee ! The staff is very friendly and accommodating in all regards.

After wanting to go for years, my husband and I finally made our first trip to Austin in June. I had read about Hotel Saint Cecilia some time ago and after extensively researching every hotel option, decided to book. I am a total design/architecture junkie -some would say snob :)- and all I can say is…COOLEST. PLACE. EVER. Loved everything...

Spent two wonderful nights there.Perfect grounds, service, bar and food. Room was very large, #4, with big patio and porch. Room had a great chair and stool.We stayed in old main house with much style. They have new cabanas near the small but inviting pool.

My husband and I stayed here one night just for fun. Loved the record player in the room, and of course the neon Soul by the pool. Saint Cecilia is an Austin gem. Definitely a bucket-list hotel, even if you live in Austin.

Sarah, what a lovely compliment especially from a resident. We love when locals stay and feel like they were really on vacation. Come back soon!

This is an ultra cool, ultra sexy hotel just off South Congress (the cool part of Austin). We were there for two nights. The grounds are very pretty, dominated by a large, sprawling Oak tree. The hotel is on a quiet side street off South Congress. We arrived and were welcomed by the staff. We stayed in a king sized...

We stayed there for my daughter's wedding. A wonderful place with wonderful people, who try their best to be accommodating to all guests. Quite small and secluded, but in the city, south of the river, within a short walk to South Congress restaurants. Very private, and equally pricy. If you want privacy and substantial suites and an Austin funky experience,...

This hotel was once one of the few boutique options in Austin (6 yrs ago). Now the city is booming with hotels. This one still stands out to me. And I prefer it to the San Jose just because it feels more secluded more peaceful. I think they burn incense throughout the property...really creates a neat atmosphere. Love the blue...

We planned a last minute trip to Austin, and I was so happy I was able to get a room at the Saint Cecilia! We typically stay at their sister hotel the San Jose, and I figured this would be a nice step up from the hussle of being right on South Congress Avenue. Well, it's more like 2 or...

We love it when guests fall in love with us; that is our goal! We apologize for the party girls, but sometimes people get too carried away when they are having too much fun. Come back next time and stay in a suite or studio. We'd love to get your feedback on those room types as well.

This boutique hotel is spectacular and lacks nothing when it comes to style and comfort. The rooms and grounds are unique and oh so eloquent. It is a block off the main drag yet feels like a world of its own. We would highly recommend enveloping yourself in this little gem of luxury.
