My company booked me in this hotel as we were holding lectures in the raining rooms. Beautiful position just outside Austin city itself and close to the tower in Austin and the Capitol building. Rooms were very spacious and comfortable and the air-con was a blessing as the temperature was over 35 degrees every day we were there. Hotel has... More

Though the hotel is nice and the rooms were clean, I was surprised at how rude some of the front desk staff were. My younger sister was charged $40 to borrow a phone charger. I couldn't believe that. When we checked in, we were greeted by a staff member who was less than happy. When I had forgotten my room... More

Dear BeckiJo N: I am quite surprised and most apologetic that any member of our staff have anything but an inviting attitude. If you have a moment to reach out to me directly I would appreciate it. 512-404-1900 I would like to understand more about the interactions you had so we can address it with our staff. As for the...

Very close to UT. Nice hotel with nice amenities. Self parking was around $20 per day. But you can go in and out as much as possible. Very quiet rooms. Nice wifi and tv options. Beds were amazing. I slept so good.

Stayed for pleasure with friends, and I loved it. I had a spacious, cleverly designed room with wonderful touches of Austin art . Great expansive lobby, and loads of public space for your to read, or just sit outside and marvel at the beautiful Capital. Transportation is a bit tricky, so try and book a car in advance.

I stayed at the AT&T Executive Conf.Ctr. for the first time on trip back to help my son relocate his UT Apartment. The hotel staff was professional, the King Room was very comfortable, and as you can imagine, the TV line up is impressive and the WiFI worked perfectly. The health club was just fine, although I expected something a... More

This property has three great things going for it ... it is very new, modern and clean, it is on the University of Texas campus, and it has a great bar/restaurant. Staff was attentive -- all around good experience.

We were in town for a reunion and enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean, grounds were well-kept and the staff was very professional. When I asked where I could print out our boarding passes for the flight home, the desk attendant printed them out for us. Location is very good but the $18/day parking is a little steep. There were... More

We found this hotel at the last minute through Hotwire. The location is great for the university, albeit a bit far for walking to downtown attractions. Very nice property, great comfy rooms, nice bed. I would agree with another reviewer the room had an odor(not unlike cat urine, which seems impossible given how immaculate the room was. Bottom line: If... More

The only thing that this place has going for them is their proximity to the UT campus. Other than that, they are a pretty standard hotel with nice flowers around the lobby. Service is just ok. Nobody goes out of their way to be nice. And they might steal from your room also. At least that's what happened to me... More
