"Historic hotel near UT Austin/Austin State Capitol"
Overall, our stay at Hotel Ella was excellent. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We really like that they have a bar that hosts happy hour everyday for half off all drinks and bar appetizers. My husband particularly enjoyed the local beers served at the bar as he is a beer enthusiast. We took advantage of their free car service (first come, first serve) pickup/drop-off to nearby locales and tourist spots. The drivers were friendly and were knowledgeable on local recommendations for places to see, visit, and eat. They also have free bikes to use but didn't get a chance to try it. Our room was on the first floor (windows faced a fence) but next time we come back, we will pick a room where the window faces to the poolside area. The hotel did an excellent job of cleaning our rooms, making it comfortable, and having a turndown service every evening. However, there was some inconsistency on how the housekeeping left our articles of clothing and toiletries in the room. (I guess this may be due to different housekeeping staff doing the cleaning everyday.) The hotel was also quick on getting us something we requested when we called the front desk (example: forks and napkins if we ate inside our room.) We would love to come back to Austin again and if we do, Hotel Ella would be our choice for a hotel.
Our room was very clean and it was within 1 block of the main shopping strip in the Domain. We we very pleased to get this room on Expedia, as we saved over $100. Paid $150.00 after hotel taxes and fees - which was a great rate over the Holiday weekend.
