Hotel Ella

One of Austin's original private manors, the Goodall Wooten Mansion is a local treasure. Travelers wanting a true taste of local history will be thrilled to learn that it has been transformed into a luxury hotel with just 38 guest rooms and ten suites. Tasteful modern décor provides an attractive contrast to the building's historic architecture, and highlights include artwork and sculptures that reflect Austin's history. Adding to the hotel's appeal are a tranquil courtyard pool lined with cabanas and on-site Goodall's Kitchen & Bar, serving global dishes crafted from local, seasonal ingredients.
