Hotel Suggestions & Things to do While in Austin

Hotel Suggestions-
Click here for a link to hotels in the general vicinity of our Eastview campus.  Hope the link works! You can set a rate maximum using the sliding scale at the top of the page.
 
We suggest hotels that are located downtown (since we are just East of downtown) or within the boundaries of Hwy 290 on the north end and Hwy 71 on the south end of IH-35. If staying north, our campus can be accessed via Airport Blvd which gets you off of IH-35. Austin traffic can be quite heavy, especially on IH-35 during morning and 5 o’clock drive times.
 
Here are some suggestions of nicer hotels based on a rate no higher than $162.
