Stayed here for a wedding. All the groomsmen had a room together for the wedding, which was good because SkyBar was within walking distance. I enjoyed the hotel so much I ended up getting another room after the wedding with my date. It is definitely not a cheap hotel I believe I paid 200+ for one night, but I enjoyed it and would stay there again.

I stayed here for a conference and found the facilities very nice. The rooms were nice and well cleaned. The hotel has a variety of conference and meeting rooms. The smaller rooms are great for about a dozen people to the ballrooms which can hold a few hundred. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is centrally located meaning that there are numerous restaurants within easy walking distance. Parking is plentiful and the campus is right across the street. The rooms are a little above the average price but due to the central location the extra cost is worth it.

Stayed here recently while visiting our daughter. Great location. Rooms had nice furnishings and were clean. However double bed rooms has only full size beds, not queens, and the mattresses were too soft for our liking. Also, while the bathroom was large, the layout made it difficult for two people to use a the same time. The breakfast buffet was fantastic and worth the price.

Dear MICHAEL D:

Thank you so much for your kind review of The Hotel at Auburn University and for sharing your experience with us on Trip Advisor.

As so many of our guests have noted, our location on the AU campus, across the street from iconic Samford Hall gives us a location in Auburn that is second to none. I do apologize that the mattresses were softer than you prefer; we are in the planning stages for a guest room renovation that, among other upgrades, will include all new mattresses in the rooms.

I do hope that your journeys will bring you back to Auburn and that we have a chance to welcome you back to The Hotel at Auburn University.

With regards,

I traveled from Florida to see my wonderful daughter at Auburn University. The Hotel at Auburn is located on campus and within easy walking distance of downtown shops and restaurants.The hotel is in excellent shape with constant cleaning throughout the day, the elevators are fast, and the staff greets you with a friendly smile. The lounge is a nice place to unwind late at night with an excellent bartender who is eager to provide excellent service. The front desk provided details and advice for the surrounding Auburn area. If you travel during football season....book early !!

I don't normally write reviews, but I have been meaning to write this one for some time. So now that we are on our way for another stay, I decided to do this while captive in our car. The Hotel at Auburn University staff, especially Romaine, has always been welcoming and willing to make our stay comfortable. Romaine is very good about remembering a guest's name. On several occasions, he has gone above and beyond for us to ensure our stay was as pleasant and comfortable as possible. One example is the year our daughter, a student at Auburn University, was very ill with pneumonia. It being college, she didn't want to fall behind any more than necessary. So we asked the hotel if there was any way they could bring in additional lighting. Soon a maintenance man arrived with several additional task lights and set it up to allow her to work on her design project . This way she could rest in the room with me and work on her project as she felt up to it. They were also helpful in getting me soup and ginger ale for her. On another stay, I came in town for our daughter to say goodbye to her dog before we put her down. It was a busy football weekend and I was going to have to change hotels or return home. Someone cancelled, and they offered me the room so we could stay a little longer. Each time we have stayed at the hotel, any request has been met with a smile and been granted. Thank you Hotel Auburn for a wonderful staff and service. Jo Anne W

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at the Hotel at Auburn University. The hotel is conveniently located - everything we wanted to see in town was within walking distance. The staff was very attentive, gracious, and professional. The hotel itself is very attractive and the room was quite comfortable. We had a great view of Samford Tower and enjoyed looking at all the old photos (located throughout the hotel) of the town and university campus. The hotel staff went out of their way to make sure our visit (birthday celebration for an Auburn grad) was even more special, which we greatly appreciated. We did not eat in the restaurant but did grab coffee and some hearty muffins from the café for breakfast and we thoroughly enjoyed our cocktails while listening to some great jazz in the Piccolo lounge one evening. Hands down, this is the best place to stay if you are visiting Auburn!

As we are owned by, and located on the campus of Auburn University, we obviously have a location that can't be matched anywhere in Auburn. Add in a friendly and capable staff of professionals and AU Hospitality students and we have the recipe for a wonderful and memorable stay. I’m so pleased that you found everything to your liking and had a memorable birthday experience!
