Our experience at the Four Seasons was nice, as expected. Rooms were spacious & clean with a pretty view of the lake. Some of the staff were awesome: valet, spa, receptionists were great. Some were snooty: concierge. All in all, it was a nice stay.
Loved the location of the W. Near some great restaurants, easy breakfast next door at Austin Java, very convenient to the capitol building, LBJ library, museums, riverfront, and UT. Staff was very friendly. Workout facilities were clean and spacious. Only downside was the bed. Ours was so soft and saggy that I still have a terrible backache three days later. Made the plane flight home miserable. I'd stay again, but if the bed is that bad, I'd ask to be moved. I'm hoping it was a fluke.
I had an amazing stay!!! We were in Austin for a last minute girls trip from Dallas and it felt like a getaway! The hotel was clean, spacious, super friendly/funny staff, and the beds were so comfortable!! I'm definitely staying there again my next trip to Austin!!

We stayed in Hotel Ella for couple nights. It was our first trip to Austin. The hotel was very welcoming and elegant. The lobby is in the historical mansion. The rooms are in the added on to the side of the house. We had a 2 queens beds room and it was a very good size. The decor of the room was beautiful. The bathroom was very nicely done. The only down side to our room is the shower door did not seal correctly so when we showered, the water would leak out.
The hotel complimentary car service was great. Jimmy took us to our first stop then picked us up later off Congress street. He was very nice and helpful. The hotel is conveniently located so what we wanted to see was within the car service vicinity. The hotel is also walking distant to UT Austin.
We had a really nice trip and would definitely stay at Hotel Ella again!
Downtown Austin’s attractions include The University of Texas at Austin and the Texas State Capitol. Austin also lays claim to another capital: live music. Bars and clubs pack a half-mile stretch of Sixth Street. The gay-friendly Warehouse District is another nightlife hub, as is the SoCo District south of Lady Bird Lake. On summer nights, 1.5 million bats emerge from the Congress Avenue bridge.
