I went to Austin this past weekend finally and decided to stay here for the first time. I can foresee this being a long term love affair as I immediately fell in love with the charm of this hotel. I'll try to point out as many wonderful as well as objective things about it. Since we decided to go last... More

Great location just 2 minutes from loads of great restaurants, bars and shops on Congress. Rooms are lovely with lots of details that make them stand out like the record collection you can use or the special toiletries you can buy, we stayed in a pool side villa with a lovely seating area to chill on in. The pool was... More

If there was an Eden on Earth somewhere, well I have found it at Hotel Saint Cecilia. When you arrive, the hotel is on a secluded street. Behind the white gate, hidden from the debauchery of South Congress, a miniscule neon light illuminates the entrance. This gorgeous boutique hotel and when I say gorgeous, it is lush, filled with verdant... More

I must admit that staying at Hotel Saint Cecilia was one of the reasons I wanted to visit Austin. I'd seen photos online and was really looking forward to seeing it in person. And it did not disappoint! We stayed in studio 6, and it was beautifully decorated and quite spacious--well more than enough room for the two of us.... More

This boutique hotel seems to have emerged directly from a pinterest page- it's a haven! Our room near the pool was my dream space- deep navy blue tiles in the bathroom (that has a kimono for you)- Le Labo bath products- an irresistible mini bar- and a retreat style pool! Love this place and the staff? So friendly and helpful... More

A truly unique lodging experience! I loved the studio I stayed in. From the carafe of fresh water delivered to my room to the turntable with vinyl lending library, every detail is carefully thought out! Food is great and the pool is delightful!

Aside from the lovely details, the service at this hotel has set the bar. Getting the room next to the pool was completely worth it. Arriving to a handwritten note- cookies and the best bathroom products- I was already loving it. Each time we got room service or drinks at the pool there was no awkward moment signing for our...

Originally a Victorian home built in the late 1880s converted to a bed and breakfast about 20 years ago. Located in a historic neighborhood and near the many attractions of Austin. This has the feel of a neighborhood oasis in the middle of the City.

We live in Austin and wanted a weekend getaway and had "0" time to travel anywhere. This Hotel could not have been more perfect. Located near retro Soco...it's a secluded compound with beautiful landscaping and grounds.
