Special Rate for Hotel Accommodations in Austin

The TACC cooperative program provides many goods and services to our members. Another beneficial program is a negotiated room rate for hotel accommodations in Austin. The Holiday Inn – Midtown is a short drive from the capitol, TACC offices, and downtown Austin. It is located at 6000 Middle Fiskville Road adjacent to the Austin Community College campus. Call the hotel at (512) 451-5757 and give the code “Texas Association of Community Colleges” to obtain the special rate of $114 per night plus free breakfast buffet. This is an extremely competitive rate for a full service hotel so close in to the City. Their website is www.hiausmid.com. Josh Delgado is sales manager and can help you with any accommodation needs.
