Listed below are the travel liaisons for each institution. Please contact the appropriate individual at your institution for help with your travel plans.
We have reserved a block of rooms at the Radisson-Town Lake located at 111 Cesar Chavez and Congress Avenue in downtown Austin http://www.radisson.com/austin-hotel-tx-78701/txaustdt/services
STUDENT ADVISORY COUNCIL CUT OFF DATES
Reservation/name changes received after the cut-off date will be accepted on a space available basis at the prevailing rate.
GUEST ROOM RATE: $104.00 Single Occupancy Rate
Do not make your reservations online.
The hotel check-in time is 3:00 pm. Room assignment prior to that time is on an availability basis. Upon check-in, SAC members will be asked to verify departure date. At that time, scheduled departure dates can be altered. Changes made thereafter will be subject to a $50.00 administrative fee. Departure extensions are based on availability. Please remember that your component is tax exempt and a tax exemption form or certification should be supplied by you to the hotel at check-in. The form will be on the SharePoint site and we will have some available at the meeting.
Since meetings will begin at 12:00 pm, the Radisson has arranged for your luggage to be held for you prior to check-in.
The hotel check-out time is 12:00 pm. Any requests for later departure must be approved through their front office. Confirmation on late check-out is based on availability
The Radisson has two types of parking.
Room, taxes and incidental charges are to be paid by each individual upon departure either with credit card, cash or check. Incidental charges will not be reimbursed to your component. Please note that you will be required to guarantee payment of these charges with major credit card or a cash deposit upon check-in. Your tax exemption form should wave state tax on your room, so please be sure this tax is not included in your room charge.
Please bring your University IDs with you. You must sign in and present an ID in order to gain entrance into Ashbel Smith Hall (ASH). Please note that this building is located at 201 West 7th Street—the meeting is not at the hotel.
