We love Hotel Ella! It's so charming and the staff is amazing. We didn't have a chance to experience the beautiful outside verandas because it was cold and raining while we were there but next time we will. It was a great location for us because it was close to everything but not as stressful as being right downtown. We will be back.

The team is more than welcoming and accommodating, I was able to get a load of laundry done since my apartment is out of water due to to the Texas Freeze. The food was great with in-room dining, and timely. Would definitely stay again!

My 2nd stay, this time during the bad ice/snow event. Even though it appeared they did not have a full staff during the emergency, the service never wavered. Huge mansion 2nd floor room facing the street, with an amazing balcony, with very nicely upfitted bathroom. With no neighboring places to eat or even buy basic food, they kept us fed via room service. We were very fortunate to pick Hotel Ella during for our visit, which was a terrible tragedy for many others in Austin that week. Will be back for sure. Andrew was especially courteous and attentive.

Greetings kenzoco, It was our pleasure to have you stay with us again, albeit under such tragic weather conditions.I am glad to hear that you were able to stay safe and warm with us when the weather conditions turned for the worse in our state. I am also glad to know that of all the places you could have been trapped in, it was one our our Mansion Petite Suite rooms. I am sure that the snowed over lawn looked absolutely beautiful from up there! We look forward to hosting you here again! Hopefully next time with some sunnier and friendly weather. Best, Andrew Ehlers Director of Rooms
