We opted for a Cool Corner Suite (their words) which ticked all the boxes for views and space. The bathroom has stunning views from the bath and shower which we much enjoyed while bathing. The colour scheme of red and grey was not quite to my taste as a bit masculine and heavy but the lighting and amenities are very...

Hello, Thank you for your review. Our team strives to make every stay memorable and I am glad you enjoyed your Cool Corner Suite and lively WET deck. That being said, I am dissapointed that we did not deliver that experience for you once you checked out after 3 nights. I would love the opportunity to discuss your concerns directly....

While the room that I had was fantastic and the property has the expected "boutique-y" vibe of the W brand, the staff is, by and large, arrogant, pretentious, and fake. While I love the property, I loathe the experience that comes with staying here. The JW Marriott is right up the street from here. Do yourself a favor and stay...

I spent four nights at the W in a standard room - was unsure what to expect as my experience with W's before has been a bit hit and miss. Checking in the staff were super friendly - room was surprisingly big (although no coffee machine). Mini bar stocked with lots of tempting goodies and bathroom large - made even...

I arrived at noon and had a 20 minute wait for my room to be ready. This was convenient given the lobby wifi. My room, on the 10th floor, was outfitted in a highly contemporary style and was very comfortable. The shower is a subway-tiled built-in which works quite well. Those traveling with a non-intimate companion should be aware that...

We stayed one night in Austin to visit. Staff was incredible even though it was super busy. Alice Cooper was playing the venue in the building - we didn't know that. We were treated like we were vips. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. A short walk to everything. We enjoyed Italic Italian near by and ran on the...

If you want to hang out with a bunch of old people getting sloppy drunk in the pool, this is the hotel for you. Plus the pool is not big enough for the number of old drunks lounging around. The water was murky be about 4pm. The rooms are also starting to show wear and tear. Still okay, but not...
