Open 2nd Austin, Texas Property - the Hotel Saint Cecilia
February 4, 2009 - Austin, TX – Bunkhouse Management announced today the opening of their newest hotel, the Hotel Saint Cecilia. The luxury hotel, named after the patron saint of music and poetry, is opening its doors on December 8, 2008 in Austin, TX.
Located in the heart of Austin, the Hotel Saint Cecilia resides on the
estate of a historic 1880 Victorian and features a seamless combination
of antiques, pop modern furniture and original artwork. With just 14 rooms
scattered between the Victorian and modern bungalows, the hotel is a private
haven situated just steps from South Congress and downtown Austin.
“Come pay homage to Saint Cecilia, the patron saint of the poet and musician in all of us, says Bunkhouse owner Liz Lambert.”
The grounds, including a bar and lounge, are private and offer a secluded
retreat amid the bustling city. Hotel guests will be treated to crepes
to order for breakfast or the Saint Cecilia’s unique collection of European
wines and traditional cocktails offered in the evenings. Each suite is
equipped with a turntable to complement the vintage vinyl collection available
in the lounge. Suites also have handmade Hastens mattresses from Sweden
(the only North American hotel to feature them exclusively) as well as
exquisite textiles and bedding. The Hotel Saint Cecilia also features a
gorgeous swimming pool surrounded by lush gardens and pathways.
The hotel will begin taking reservations and will be officially open for business on December 8, 2008. Hotel Saint Cecilia is located at 112 Academy Dr. Austin, TX 78704. For more info go to www.hotelsaintcecilia.com
