“Worth it if money is no object”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the AT&T as part of a conference and it is a lovely hotel. Great location with university activities all around. We watched three weddings out our window and easily walked all around the campus.

The staff was polite and professional, all was clean and polished. Lovely, large room and great bathroom. This is a high-class place, but I would have liked a machine to grab a diet coke. We didn't eat in the hotel; instead we walked down the street and enjoyed the University Drag. We looked into adding a third night on our own dime, but at $250 a night, it didn't seem worth it. We moved a few blocks and saved $100.

Our daughter is an avid runner who decided at the last minute to run in the Austin 10-20. As a result, we had a hard time finding a convenient upscale hotel. We ended up selecting the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center which we found on the internet. While not especially convenient to the race, the hotel was extraordinary in every other way. The staff in every department was extremely accommodating and friendly. The room was a bit small as we needed 2 queens, but it was very comfortable and clean. The pool could have used a little more heat, but nonetheless we enjoyed an exhilarating swim during our stay. We tried dinner at Gabriel's and it was a very enjoyable casual dining experience. The food was fresh and well prepared. We would definitely recommend this hotel, especially for parents of UT attendees. The on-campus location just couldn't be any better.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3007. No complaints about the noise level whatsoever.

A very nice, upscale hotel that is owned by the Univ. Texas Austin, (name was leased to AT&T and is run by an outside service). Service was friendly and the rooms were very well appointed and comfortable. The AT&T cable service in each room had thousands of channels, the restaurants in the hotel were delicious and the location cant be beat. We were in town for the NCAA tournament and it was an easy walk to the Erwin center. It is however a trek to Sixth street and many of the restaurants so we ended up cabbing it a few times. If you have a car you MUST drive out to Salt Lick BBQ (approx. 30 mins away) its worth the drive!

Overall a great facility, a bit pricey but worth it.

I loved this hotel! We came here for the Austin City Limits 2012 music festival. It was one of the few hotels still on the list. We didn't know what to expect, just that it was on the edge of U. Texas. The room was great, spacious, modern, clean quiet, super comfortable bed, and a great bathroom. They had free wifi, and the TV had every cable channel EXCEPT Fox News (which was funny, b/c is that even legal in Texas?) :D Nice restaurant and very nice staff. It was not walking to distance to the Downtown areas we needed, but it was very short drives. Driving everywhere seems the norm, and parking is not a big deal. I loved the outdoor sitting areas and conference rooms, if I were a student I would take advantage of studying here (if they're allowed. Maybe not). If you a want a mature place to sleep after a whole day of music and mud in the outdoors, this is it. We would stay here again. Not very $$ for all you get.

I have to say that this hotel has the most friendliest staff I've dealt with. I enjoyed my time here. The room was nice and clean, the bed was comfortable. Everything about our stay here was great! We would definitely keep this place on mind if we ever plan a vacation to Texas.

My wife, son, and I stayed at the AT&T Conference Center one night for a UT campus visit. The location is great for this purpose, as it is right on the campus, so you can leave your car parked and just walk to where you need to go. The hotel is easy to get to from I-35. The staff, most of whom I am guessing are UT students, are all very friendly and knowledgeable. Check in and out was easy. We used the garage parking ($16), which is also very easy and convenient. Valet parking is also available for ~ $21-22.

The room was clean and laid out well. I read in some other reviews that the beds were not comfortable. While they are certainly not as plush as you would find at some high end Marriotts or Hiltons, we found them to be just fine and none of us had any trouble sleeping. The rooms are not exceptionally big, but we had plenty of space and did not feel crowded.

We did not eat in the restaurants, except to grab some breakfast cereal to go in the morning. The waiter there was very accommodating and helpful with that. The restaurants all look good, though, and the breakfast buffet in the Carillon looked like what you would get at a high end hotel.

If you are going to the university, the location is on campus. Very nice and roomy. Clean and new. The employees are very polite and helpful. We did not eat in the restaurants, but they look good and were relatively crowded.
