AUSTIN, TX—Currently undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation, Hotel Ella will officially open this September in the former Goodall Wooten Mansion.

Bringing a sense of history, style and luxury to downtown Austin, Hotel Ella will boast a complete redesign of the 48 expansive guestrooms and introduce new outdoor space featuring a cabana-lined lap pool and a wrap-around veranda overlooking the expansive front lawn.

Built in 1898, the Goodall Wooten mansion features a Greek revival structure that stands today. “We are excited to breathe new life to such a magnificent property,” Steve Shotsberger, general manager of the project, said in a statement. “Hotel Ella combines the grandeur of old Texas with sophisticated design, personalized service and world-class amenities.”

Michael Hsu Office of Architecture will instill a new, refined vision for the property into the design while maintaining its stately elegance.
