COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) -- Starting Sept. 23, Fightin’ Aggie fans and campus visitors will have the opportunity to secure guest room options at the new Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center that is being built across the street from Kyle Field, opening in the fall of 2018.
The options, which start at donations of $100,000, will be valid for 10 years and will give holders the right to book hotel rooms or suites of their own at the Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center for home football games – or for any other day of the year.
The guest room options provide consistent and dependable access to the closest hotel to Kyle Field and one of the most comfortable properties in the region.
Just 96 yards from the gate of the stadium, the new 252,500 square-foot Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center will be eight stories tall and feature over 35,000 square feet of meeting and event space that includes an 8,300-square foot ballroom capable of accommodating 650 guests.
The hotel also will include a swimming pool, full-service restaurant, wine bar, coffee shop, gym, business center and a multi-level sports bar with indoor and outdoor space. The 250 guest rooms will have luxury amenities and will be decorated in Texas A&M’s colors of maroon and white with accents of gray.
Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp said the hotel and conference center will not only provide easy access to Aggie sporting events, but it also promises to help the University recruit talented students, world-class professors and top-tier staff.
“The new Texas A&M University Hotel and Conference Center will be a phenomenal addition to campus,” Chancellor Sharp said. “This will be a one-of-a-kind hotel that will benefit fans and the overall student experience at our great university.”
Anyone in the general public will have an equal shot at receiving a guest room option for one of the standard rooms, the Chancellor said.
Options for corporations and other individuals also will be available. Thirty-six “Century Level” rooms, 11 suites and two penthouses will be offered through an online auction.
Former students and fans will be able to secure a spot in the online auction or lottery beginning September 23. The date of the auction and lottery will be announced later in the Fall.
