at&t hotel and conference center

The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center in Austin will debut 30,000 square feet of new meeting and event space with its expansion opening January 2018. The expansion will include the 15,000-square-foot Zlotnik Family Ballroom, a multi-use space for business meetings, conferences, weddings, graduations and social gatherings. With the addition, the AT&T Hotel & Conference Center will offer a total of 80,000 square feet of flexible space and 53 meeting rooms to accommodate groups of six to 1,600 people.

In addition to the Zlotnik Family Ballroom, the expansion will include nine additional meeting rooms, directly connected to the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center by an enclosed walkway. The new space seamlessly transitions from the current space into the new ballroom’s 5,000-square-foot pre-event space with natural light cascading through the built-in skylights. The expansion is part of Rowling Hall, which will also house The University of Texas at Austin’s McCombs School of Business graduate programs.

The pre-function space of the Zlotnik Family Ballroom will have a large mural from José Parlá, a Brooklyn-based artist known for his paintings, sculpture, photography and architectural collaborations. The mural will be his most ambitious project to date, occupying 4,000 square feet. The artwork will highlight Austin’s natural environment and cityscape and will feature Parlá’s characteristic traces of collage, pulled impasto surfaces and signature calligraphic marks.

The new meeting and event spaces, designed by New York-based architecture firm Ennead Architects, are designed to accommodate various types of events and room arrangements and will feature an abundance of natural light. With a wide array of room sizes and layout options, the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center can host everything from intimate boardroom meetings to wedding receptions and large scale corporate events.

The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center is owned by The University of Texas and is located at the south entrance of campus, between the UT Tower and Texas State Capitol. Located in downtown Austin, the 297-key property offers three on-site dining options, including The Carillon, an award-winning restaurant, and is central to the city’s top museums, restaurants, retail, events, festivals and nightlife.

The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center offers 80,000 square feet of meeting space and access to 500 guest rooms through a collaborative partnership with surrounding hotels, known as the Innovation District. The venue is also close to The University of Texas, Dell Medical School and area museums.
