Fodor's Review

History and modern amenities come together in this exquisite boutique hotel near the southern edge of UT's main campus. The Goodall Wooten house, a Texas Historic Landmark completed in 1900, was of fairly simple design until 1910, when the owners remodeled it into a grand Classical Revival mansion. All rooms have high-speed Internet connections, and there's twice-daily maid service. Little touches—his and hers bathrobes, extra pillows, and beautiful bathrooms (in the

more expensive wing)—make the difference. There's also an exceptional, fine-dining restaurant, a handsome bar, and occasional cabaret performances in the second-floor banquet hall.
