Executive education participants, students, alumni, and recruiters may come for professional purposes, but they’ll find Austin tourism to be just as compelling. The four-star executive education center and hotel includes fine eateries, a casual café, a fitness center, an outdoor courtyard, the UT Campus Club and 297 comfortable hotel rooms. A landmark in itself, the conference center serves as the main gateway to the university as well as a base from which to enjoy nearby cultural treasures.
From the executive development center, guests may walk to many Austin gems, including the Texas State Capitol building and the Harry Ransom Center, home to a Guttenberg Bible, manuscript collections dating from the 17th Century and historic photographic holdings. Theatre lovers are minutes away from the Performing Arts Center, a venue that brings renowned musical and performing artists to the UT campus. The Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art is a block from the facility and holds a rich array of permanent and traveling exhibits, from Dante Gabriel Rossetti to Andy Warhol. And just across the street, visitors can explore Texas’ heritage at The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. With a short taxi or bus ride, you can easily explore downtown Austin, Lady Bird Lake and the city’s beautiful hike and bike trails.
