In the heart of Austin’s UT district, in a neighborhood popular with students

Map of Hotel Ella

The hotel is located in a shady residential neighborhood to the southwest of the University of Texas campus. Even if you’re not a UT alumnus, the collegiate feel of the surroundings might transport you back to your college days. There are a number of houses in the neighborhood catering to students, as well as fast food restaurants and local businesses. With that in mind, don’t expect to find old homes as well-restored as the mansion housing the hotel.

Downtown Austin is a short drive or bus ride away, and several of the UT attractions are within 20 minutes’ walking distance.

  • 25-minute-drive to Austin Bergstrom International Airport
  • 10-minute-walk to the Blanton Museum of Art
  • 10-minute walk to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum
  • 5-minute-drive to Frank Erwin Center
  • 5-minute-drive to Texas State Capitol
  • 5-minute-drive to LBJ Presidential Library
  • 6-minute-drive to Mike A. Myers Stadium
  • 7-minute-drive to Austin City Limits at The Moody Theater
  • 10-minute drive to Austin Convention Center (20-minute walk)
