Hotel Saint Cecilia was originally built in 1888 as the Miller-Crockett house, and is among the five remaining Victorian homes of twelve originally built along this stretch of the Colorado River. The home was occupied by a descendant of Davy Crockett, Leslie Crockett, and his wife Mary Ann Miller for over 60 years before it was converted into a Bed & Breakfast in the mid-nineties. Bunkhouse renovated and reopened the property as Hotel Saint Cecilia in 2008.
Hotel Saint Cecilia was conceived and created by Texas hotelier Liz Lambert and Bunkhouse. The company’s other properties include Hotel San José, a 40 room modern minimalist courtyard hotel and the iconic Austin Motel, a renovated motor-court hotel in Austin, the neighboring Hotel Magdalena on Music Lane, Carpenter Hotel; Hotel Havana, the historic property on San Antonio’s River Walk; Bunkhouse’s first international hotel, Hotel San Cristóbal Baja in Todos Santos, Mexico, the first non-Texas property The Phoenix Hotel in San Francisco, California, and the recently acquired Shady Villa hotel in Salado, Texas.
The Hotel Saint Cecilia sits in the historic Travis Heights neighborhood one block from sister property Hotel Magdalena and the South Congress district, home to iconic live music venue the Continental Club and other hubs of Austin culinary, entertainment and shopping culture.
