Hotel of the week: Hotel St. Cecilia, Austin
Named after the patron saint of music, this “whimsically elegant” Victorian mansion is a temporary home for the fans who come to Austin's two big music festivals.
Every year, Austin attracts “hordes of the musically inclined,” said Becca Hensley in National Geographic Traveler. Music fans love its “200-plus” venues and its two big festivals, South by Southwest and Austin City Limits. They all need a place to lay their heads after a night of live music, and can find one among the studios, suites, and poolside bungalows of the Hotel St. Cecilia. Named after the patron saint of music, this “whimsically elegant” restored Victorian mansion “evokes nostalgia” with turntables in every room and an “exhaustive catalogue of vintage vinyl.”Contact: Hotelsaintcecilia.com
