Classic American counterculture runs through the veins of this property. With a true reverence for art, music and poetry, Hotel Saint Cecilia is a place which pulses with an energised individualism. Saint Cecilia completely captures a bygone era and pulls the past into the present.
Deep colours and classic, retro patterns are plastered throughout this unique hotel, giving it a real sense of character and distinctive design. Without being overwhelming, the property manages to combine an array of textures and tones, in various lights, at multiple levels, to creates a place which is forever surprising its guests in an charming way.
Created in honour of the patron saint of music and poetry, Saint Cecilia takes inspiration from the great era of the late 1960s and early 1970s when a revolution of rock and roll and beat poetry overran the hallowed halls of established convention. The hotel pays tribute to the great creative legacy of our revolutionary idols and to the spirit of the artist that lies within us all.
Each of the five suites, six poolside bungalows, and three studios embodies an equal love for the elegance of old-world luxury and the irreverence of our muses – The Stones, Bill Burroughs, Anne Sexton, Hunter S. Thompson among them. The secluded property and lush grounds are open only to hotel guests, thereby offering a unique sense of privacy situated steps away from the heart of South Austin.
