Thompson among them. The secluded property and lush grounds are open only to hotel guests, thereby offering a unique sense of privacy situated steps away from the heart of South Austin.

Saint Cecilia’s crowning jewel is its 50-foot heated lap pool which is open to guests twenty-four hours a day.

Located above the lounge, the covered terrace is perfect for an intimate meal, cocktail party or business meeting of 6 to 20 guests.
