Hotel Ella


In 1897, when Goodall married Ella Newsome, Ella’s father built the mansion as their wedding gift. The columns—an anniversary gift, naturally—were added later by legendary Swiss carver Peter Mansbendel.

Hotel Ella can be your gift, too. Host an iconic wedding at Hotel Ella, and let your big day be the next chapter in an over 100-year-old legacy of style and grace. From an intimate ceremony in the ballroom to an outdoor affair on the expansive front lawn, Ella provides an idyllic setting steeped in Texas charm — all in the heart of downtown Austin.

Hotel Ella is the only boutique hotel in downtown Austin with a ballroom event space and the opportunity to buy out any or all of our 47 guest rooms or the entire grounds for your wedding. You and your guests will enjoy the historic charm of the property met with impeccable service and attention to detail.
