Room Reservations

Room InteriorWe have a great special rate at the Intercontinental of just $179 per nite, single and double occupancy. Your room rate includes wireless internet access in guest rooms and complimentary use of the health club. You’ll find it hard to beat that for convenience and amenities in the city center area. Reserve early as these rates only apply to our limited room allocation. If you are spending some extra time in Austin, you can still enjoy the hotel at the same low rate if space is available. Register with the custom online form if you are reserving for the nights of January 6  and 7. If you are staying additional nights, please call the hotel and ask for the WritersUA rate. 800.235.4670.
