This Valentine’s Day at Hotel Ella, participate in a murder mystery soirée complete with twists and turns at every course. The clues begin at cocktail hour in the Hotel Ella courtyard.

And don’t forget to don your favorite wedding attire at this nuptial affair; the best dressed couple of the night will be sent home with a complimentary future stay and a bottle of bubbles from Hotel Ella!
Our Texas Roots
In 1910, Goodall asked Ella: Would she rather have a trip around the world, or have renovations made to the house? She chose both, then hired legendary Swiss carver, Peter Mansbendel, to craft the home’s intricate woodworking.
Works of Art
Art and style have been important components of Hotel Ella since the Goodall Wooten House, now home to the hotel, was constructed at the turn of the 20th century. Today, a diverse collection of Texas Modernist works grace the hotel grounds.
To honor the artistic roots of the property, Hotel Ella presents a monthly Salon Series that features inspiring Austin creatives from all disciplines. The goal of the series is to amuse, educate and provoke inspiring dialogue about art, literature, film and music. Hotel Ella's Salon Series is a free event and welcomes all members of the creative community.
