Is the League House only available to family of patients?
We primarily serve families of patients within the Seton Family of Hospitals and secondarily families visiting patients in other Austin hospitals. Families with loved ones in the ICU have priority over patients with early morning medical exams or day surgery.
Where do I park?
Parking is free of charge and is located directly behind the Seton League House. Upon arrival you can pull into the U-drive, ring the front door bell, complete registration at the front desk, place your luggage in your room and then park your vehicle. Please provide your license plate number at check-in.
Are meals provided on site?
The Seton League House does not provide meal services other than vending (including soup). However, we are located near several restaurants that provide full service home-style meals such as Austin’s traditional Kirbey Lane Cafe and 34th Street Cafe, in addition one of Austin’s favorite sandwich shops Delaware Subs and P-Terry’s. Other restaurants nearby serve cooked to order burgers, sandwiches, salads and other meals. We are always happy to provide dining recommendations to our guests, including a value-priced meal at Seton Medical Center Austin cafeteria. All of these are a quick walk or a short drive away!
What do I need for check in?
You will need to provide a photo ID for each person staying in the room, your vehicle license plate number and state, and a form of payment. We take MasterCard, Visa, and Discover in addition to cash and checks.
What if I will be arriving late in the day?
Our office staff is available until 7 p.m. every day of the week to assist you. If you will need to check in later than this, our staff can pre-register you over the phone and place a room key and a copy of our policies in an envelope for you to pick up from the Security desk at Seton Medical Center Austin (SMCA). The Security desk is located at the South Entrance of SMCA on the ground floor. Be prepared to show your photo ID and Security will match your name to the envelope.
Why does Seton operate a guest house?
Seton provides person-centered care by offering a unique service beyond healthcare – affordable overnight lodging for patients and their loved ones. In 1979, Seton extended its care beyond the halls of medicine to the halls of hospitality. Sr. Mary Rose McPhee, then administrator of Seton Medical Center, initiated a hostel project after she noticed family members of patients taking sponge baths and sleeping in hallways on makeshift beds.
