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.

Unlit neon sign that reads


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.

The hotel lobby is located next to the lounge at the center of the property, and offers a variety of guest amenities and opportunities. This building has an accessible path of travel to the entrance. The lobby is also home to the Saint Cecilia’s retail store, which carries a selection of items from travel necessities to souvenirs, including products by Haoma and D.S. & Durga, and a variety of local and international craftspeople. Some items are available exclusively in the lobby store, like our custom indigo Robe and Eloi Silk Scarf.
