Austin sure knows how to make us feel at home. Last week, Hotel Ella threw us a "Welcome to Austin" party. We loved getting to see old friends and meet new faces. Hotel Ella was so wonderful throughout the process and truly produced an amazing event. Thank you!
The evening was a chance for us to connect with Austinites and immerse ourselves into the local scene. Ana and Bill Stapleton were the perfect hosts; in fact, they have been instrumental in our integration into Austin, so grateful to call them dear friends!
If you have never been to Hotel Ella, you are missing out. Located in the historic Goodall Wooten House, the boutique hotel is nestled a few blocks from the University of Texas campus and every bit as charming as the photos make it out to be.
The Parlor Bar was the perfect space to hold the cherished conversations between friends we hadn’t seen in ages and connect with ones we'd only just met. Some of our Round Top friends made the journey and we are so glad they did. Watching our worlds collide was so much fun!
Goodall’s Kitchen, the Hotel Ella restaurant, provided the delectable bites, washed down by a signature cocktail sponsored by Deep Eddy Vodka called The Vintage. We love a good name!
We left the evening renewed and reassured that we are exactly where we are supposed to be and ready for the next adventure.
