Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Hotel Ella is a landmark building located on the south side of Austin’s gorgeous UT campus, surrounded by the kinds of eclectic cafes, shops and restaurants that often characterize college areas, including the hotel’s own restaurant, which serves sophisticated American fare, popular with locals.

Though elegantly restored and featuring free Wi-Fi, rooms are a bit small. However, guests likely won’t be spending much time in there anyway, as there’s lots to do within walking distance, or they can opt to utilize a free car service to sites within 3 miles of the hotel, including hip South Congress Street.

A small lap pool and garden courtyard are good for cooling off after days exploring town. And though there aren’t specific kid-friendly amenities (this hotel is geared more towards romantic weekend escapes), kids are certainly welcome, and will be kept well occupied by the pool.
