Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Exchange vows in the courtyard, where tall trees and a fountain create a garden feel. Segue to cocktails and dinner in the light, bright reception area with white brick walls, a wood floor, and retractable glass doors for an indoor/outdoor flow. Its effortless "cool factor" is evident as soon as you see the lobby layout and décor.
  • Check out our other Austin boutique hotel: Hotel Ella
  • Accommodations are upscale and in-room tech is state of the art. Visit the rooftop pool bar, dine at one of their restaurants, then work it off in their 24-hour fitness center. You can even rent a bike or motorcycle right at the hotel.
