“Good for Conferences”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Went here for a conference, it was very nice, modern, clean and comfortable beds. it was close to the Capitol, but a little far from 6th Street. If I was going to hear the music and be downtown, I wouldn't stay here, but it was a very nice hotel.

One night quick turnaround at this hotel for business. Very competitive pricing on a weeknight with no conferences occurring in the hotel. Spacious rooms, AT&T UVerse system, well staffed and location is terrific.

Will definitely return if the price remains competitive.

Room Tip: Rooms ending in 21 have state capitol view

Stayed at AT&T Oct 31, 2012. It is one of my favorite hotels. Guest room was large, spacious, nicely decorated, crisp and clean, with excellent bedding. Very comfortable mattress. Air quality in room was particularly good. Vanity area is nice and separate from bathroom. Appreciated extra touches like magnified, lighted makeup mirror.

Room service excellent. Food delivered on time, hot and delicious. Perfect service throughout hotel, including biz center, front desk and Gabriel's Cafe staff. All staff members are friendly and helpful. Particular thanks to Pete in Gabriel's who treated our little group so well.

I stayed at the ATT center over the past weekend for an event hosted by UT Austin. The hotel was nicely appointed, as expected.

*Good
- Staff was helpful and attentive
- Bed was comfortable

* Average
- The entrance isn't well marked or obvious at first pass
- The bedside alarm wasn't reset, so I was woken up at 6 am by a shrieking alarm clock that I didn't set
- On a somewhat related note, the alarm clock is bright blue and adds a lot of brightness to the room at night

Overall, a good place to stay, especially if you need to be close to the University.

Stayed here for an academic event on campus. I ended up in an "executive parlor" room, which in reality is the living room for a 2-bedroom suite. Not bad, as the room was quite spacious. The Murphy bed in the room was just as comfortable as any standard hotel bed. Only drawback is that they gave me only one small pillow. Kind of odd--in this day and age the problem is usually a big pile of pillows that you don't know what to do with. Seems like they could reach a happy medium and at least provide 2 pillows. As for parking, I found it convenient, just below the building. You are going to have to pay for parking in this congested area, but rates are a fraction of what they are in larger cities.

What a comfortable room! Awesome crisp linens. Thirsty towels. Perfect pillows. A burnt-orange focus wall. Wide shared balconies with campus and city views. Great bar and food. It was a perfect night away and on campus!

Room Tip: All rooms are great! But if you are a longhorn, ask for tower view room!

Stayed here with a conference for 3 nights during Austin City Limits. 

The hotel's entrance, lobby, and main areas had the feel of a large, impersonal convention centre (which is exactly what it is).   My room, Rm 6001, was a standard business hotel room, offering standard amenities, but nothing luxurious. Furnishings showed modest signs of wear and tear.  The conference rate at $175 was excellent, but the third day at $249 was less so.  This room was at the end of a hallway, and due to its unique location, it had in addition to the usual large window, one behind the bed that allowed for more natural light and a feeling of spaciousness.  Blackout drapes and sheers were convenient.  This room was street side - not a great view by any means, and soemwhat noisy.

For a telecommunications conglomerate, as you would expect, free wifi was provided, and the phone system was decent.  No ability to retrieve messages remotely was a surprise though, as was no message light to indicate that a message had been left.  The clock radio had a dimmer bar, so it could be dimmed for sleeping.  A fridge in the room and separate basin and toilet/tub areas were also convenient if two were sharing a room.   The jacuzzi tub was large but old style with the jets protruding up from the bottom of the tub.  Bottled water (Fiji)  at $5 was prohibitive.  Bed was comfortable, but all 4 pillows were down and provided less support than foam for us back and side sleepers.  Coffee maker, lighted make-up mirror, and room safe were provided.  Bath-robes were much appreciated. 

The highlight of my experience of this hotel was the food in the buffet. It was full of  delicious variety and quality.  Top marks there.

The staff were friendly and service-oriented, almost to a person. They allowed me to change rooms immediately after check-in, to shorten my stay from 4 nights to 3 without penalty, and kindly agreed to late check out (by 1.5 hours) with a smile.  

I would recommend this hotel if you're looking for a basic hotel with pleasant staff and comfortable accommodations.  If you prefer a warmer more intimate and inviting ambience, or charm, look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Street side rooms can be noisy, those facing into the hotel's courtyard have balconies (some do...
