Trip Advisor
  • "Bar atmosphere very nice!"
    After graduation we stopped by the Atherton bar with a large group to celebrate. The staff were very efficient and accommodating. I don't remember the bar before but evidently during the remodel The Atherton bar was added. IT IS BEAUTIFUL and we enjoyed our congratulatory graduation celebration.

  • "Always an excellent stay"
    I stay at The Atherton for most Alumni trips back for my fraternity's annual dinner and gala. The rooms are very comfortable and come with wifi so I can keep up with work. The hotel staff is superlative and goes above and beyond the call of duty to make my stay enjoyable and memorable. The proximity to the Greek house and location on campus is perfect for daily appointments and excursions. I highly recommend the breakfast buffet at the Rancher's Club. Steaks are tremendous.

  • "Awesome Hotel! First Class Breakfast!"
    We, and other couples, stayed at the Atherton Hotel for convenience to attend a wedding & reception across the street at the OSU Alumni Center. What an awesome arrangement! Our hotel room was very, very nice, beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is served in a beautiful setting and arrangement with a wide variety of excellent, flavorful food choices including scrambled eggs and eggs Benedict, cereals, baked breads, the best French toast I ever recall eating, pastries, yogurt, excellent choices of fresh fruit, beverages, plus superior service! If we can figure out a reason to go to Stillwater, OK again the Atherton would be my first choice! Located in the 200 block of South Hester Street. Very friendly folks to assist you for your needs. An awesome stay!

  • "Can't beat the location!"
    My daughter & I stayed here on a college visit and the location can't be beat! It's right in the middle of campus- we were able to walk everywhere and since it was an official college visit, even the parking was free (validate your parking ticket at the Alumni Center when you check in for your tour). I thought our room was great- the bed was feather topped and super comfy! All in all, I can't wait to go back!
