    Gorgeous venue, amazing staff!

    We booked Hotel Ella in February 2020, and a month later we all went into lockdown for COVID. Jaycie at Hotel Ella was so flexible with us as we planned our wedding while the pandemic continued. In July, we started talking back up plans and she was able to help us make a Plan B with a small guest list (family and wedding party). They were so flexible to save two dates for us while we waited until October to postpone. Throughout the whole process, the Hotel Ella staff kept it fun and optimistic.

    We did postpone, and had our small wedding in February 2021. The weekend of our wedding the worst winter storm hit Texas, and the staff was so flexible to move our ceremony to be covered and cocktail inside the week of our date. Everything was perfect. Our guests loved the food and the space.

    We can't wait to have our postponed large reception in August with Hotel Ella!! If you want an amazing space and amazing people to work with, we definitely recommend having your wedding here!

    We got married in Austin this summer, with the reception at Hotel Ella. It could not have been more perfect!

    If you're considering hosting an event here - do it! Shelby and the rest of the events staff were incredibly helpful. She was prompt in her every response during the planning process. I asked a TON of questions, which she fielded with kindness, and I felt confident every detail was taken care of. The food/drinks were phenomenal, and the space is again...just beautiful!

    Accommodation-wise, the guest rooms are stunning. We had people in both the mansion and the back portion of the hotel. My now husband, a large portion of our families and a number of guests also stayed at the hotel leading up to and several days after the wedding festivities. Everything about Hotel Ella is lovely - the grounds, the parlor bar, the restaurant, the lobby, the pool and the rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful at every step of the way. The food at Goodall's Kitchen was delicious. We loved the intimate, on-trend pool area. We also enjoyed sitting out on the veranda of the mansion! Location wise - you're right next to the UT campus, and we found it to be a nice and quiet area. We also felt downtown was totally accessible from Hotel Ella.

    A couple logistical things: all of the rooms we had did contain small mini-bar fridges with enough space to stick ancillary items we grabbed from the store. We felt there was plenty of storage space in all the rooms -some had closets, others had large, roomy armoires. We do not live in Austin, so EVERYTHING we had for our wedding weekend fit into the rooms we reserved, and we didn't run into any problems. We also had the whole wedding party get ready in rooms at the hotel, and there was plenty of room.

    We had our reception here 5 days ago (April 2017) and I'm so happy I found Robyn at Hotel Ella. She was incredible! Everything was flawless before and during the reception. Robyn went so far as to watch the weather beforehand (I didn't have a rain plan for the ceremony) and she offered for the ceremony to be at Hotel Ella just in case! We even needed an extra vendor meal that day and Robyn was able to accommodate that request. I couldn't believe it. I would definitely recommend Hotel Ella (and work with the Amazing Robyn if you can!). I met with tons of vendors beforehand, since our wedding was thrown on a tight budget, and Hotel Ella was definitely the best choice since they are totally accommodating and they don't "nickel and dime" you. My guests loved the venue, the food, and the rooms at Hotel Ella. Thank you so much to Robyn and Hotel Ella for my incredible wedding!
