A secluded 14 rooms located in the heart of South Austin, built in honor of the patron saint of music and poetry.

Created in honor of the patron saint of music and poetry, the Saint Cecilia takes inspiration from the great era of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s when a revolution of rock and roll and beat poetry overran the hallowed halls of established convention. We pay tribute to the great creative legacy of our revolutionary idols and to the spirit of the artist that lies within us all.

The Saint Cecilia lounge lives at the center of the property and provides both indoor and outdoor seating exclusively for hotel guests and private club members.
