Hotel Saint Cecilia
Hotel Saint Cecilia

Hotel Saint Cecilia is a secluded oasis situated just steps away from the heart of the South Congress District in Austin. Named in honor of the patron saint of music and poetry, the Saint Cecilia draws inspiration from an era of rock and roll revolution and beat poetry and pays tribute to the creative legacy of revolutionary idols and artists with its laid-back bohemian vibe and eclectic décor.
