Now Open in Austin: AT&T Hotel’s Big Expansion




The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center’s new 30,000 square feet expansion is now open in downtown Austin. The new addition includes the 15,000-square-foot Zlotnik Family Ballroom, 5,000 square feet of pre-function space, and an additional 10,000-square-feet amongst a banquet kitchen and nine meeting rooms.

The addition brings the total event space at the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center to 80,000 square feet of flexible space, which includes 53 meeting rooms, accommodating up to 1,600 people. The space is multi-functional, featuring various layout options and room sizes for meetings, conferences, weddings, graduations and other social gatherings. The new addition is also part of Robert B. Rowling Hall, which serves as the new home to The University of Texas’ McCombs School of Business graduate programs.

As part of the expansion, the property collaborated with Landmarks, commissioning a mural from the award-winning public art program of The University of Texas at Austin. The mural was created by José Parlá, the Brooklyn-based artist known for his paintings, sculpture, photography and architectural collaborations. Located in the the Zlotnik Family Ballroom’s pre-function space, the mural occupies over 4,000 square feet of surface area. It depicts Austin’s natural environment and cityscape, showcasing Parlá’s characteristic traces of collage, pulled impasto surfaces, and signature calligraphic marks.

The expansion design, led by New York-based Ennead Architects and Jacobs, headquartered in Dallas, integrates flexible spaces that aim to support innovative ways of teaching, learning, collaborating and networking. The five-story space boasts an abundance of natural light, and each floor features its own unique layout and outdoor green space including a variety of terraces and lawn areas for use. From the building, visitors can enjoy panoramic views of downtown Austin and The University of Texas campus.

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. The 297-key property is located in downtown Austin and is central to the city’s top museums, restaurants, retail, events, festivals and nightlife. It has three on-site dining options, recently renovated guest rooms and advanced technology. 

In addition to over 80,000 square feet of meeting and event space, The AT&T Hotel and Conference Center provides access to over 500 additional guest rooms through a collaborative partnership with surrounding hotels, known as the Innovation District. With its proximity to The University of Texas, Dell Medical School and abundance of museums in the area, the Innovation District provides guests with a community of education, science, culture, art and technology.
