Fodor's Review

Historical elegance and modern amenities converge in this 47-room boutique hotel, formerly Mansion on Judges’ Hill, which reopened in 2013 after an extensive renovation and ownership change. The Goodall Wooten mansion, a Texas Historic Landmark completed in 1900 on the south edge of UT campus, still shines in all its Classical Revival glory. But updated extras, like high-speed Internet in every room, twice-daily maid service, 24-hour fitness room, and complimentary car service within 3 miles, make the difference. Mansion rooms retain the most charm, with junior suites offering private verandas and Carrera marble tiled bathrooms. There's a small lap pool and garden courtyard, plus fine-dining eatery, Goodall’s Kitchen & Bar, on the main floor.
