About our Company:

Inspired by the patron saint of music and designed with 1960s and 1970s artists in mind, Hotel Saint Cecilia offers a retro, glamorous private haven mixed with Southern hospitality. Both eclectic and elegant, Saint Cecilia's 14 striking yet unique accommodations are scattered throughout the estate, and feature a cohesive combination of antiques, modern furniture, and original artwork with outdoor lounge spaces. Minutes from downtown Austin, Saint Cecilia is located in the heart of a South Congress neighborhood where guests and members look forward to lounging at the heated pool under the glow of the now iconic "SOUL" sign.

Hotel Saint Cecilia is proud to be a part of Bunkhouse, a hospitality company created by hotelier Liz Lambert that believes in inspired design, connection to place and the value of community.
