If you book a room, post here so I can add you to a new list I'm going to create below this post for CONFIRMED students attending the hotel. Hopefully with at least 7 rooms booked, I can talk to the sales team (they are off for the weekend) who is in charge of handling group rates. I'm going to try and get our rooms even cheaper to save everyone some money and they will go back into your reservation and adjust the rate accordingly. They do not charge your credit card over the phone, it is only used to reserve the room and you have up to 24 hours before your check-in to cancel your reservation without penalty! I'm going to speak with them Monday to give us an even lower rate but before then they need to be sure that we have a real active group! I'm also going to ask that we be placed on the same floor, or at least have the rooms in close proximity so it's easier to meet when we arrive and go out to 6th Street in the night lol. So let's get booking!! Doubletree University Area
Ask to be transferred to reservations. Give the person helping you (I had a nice woman named Jane) your booking details. She'll ask you if you're a member of any frequent flyer program because they will give you points added towards it. If you dont have the number handy it's okay because you can present it at checkin.
Ask your representative to give you the $109 rate for a room that was renovated in 2009 (this rate is also posted online). I got a king size bed in my room but you can also get 2 queens if you want to share a room. Please let them know youre with the admitted students weekend for UT law so when I call on Monday they definitely know people called over the weekend.
It's such an exciting time... I can't wait to meet you guys!
