We were in Austin for an event our daughter organized to benefit a nonprofit. The event raised + 65k. Hooray! Over 5 days we did over 45 hours of support services for the NGO. When it was time to rest the W was solid and our room was great. Nice bath and shower and living area. The only issue we...

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...

Great location, decent size room, & great amenities! Friendly staff, great pool, amazing restaurant! If you're into a modern&/or hip hotel, you will like this property. The crowd out by the pool consists largely of 20 somethings & hipsters. But the drinks are great the pool is huge so there is plenty of room to find your little spot. The...

Have stayed twice at this hotel for a convention & few days of pleasure. Both times enjoyed pleasant & efficient service. Upon arrival this time our room smelled bad (musty maybe) and we were immediately moved to a different room with a better view. Be sure to ask for complimentary cold bottled water every time you come in at the...

I loved my experience at this hotel. It was convenient and efficient. After a long drive this hotel was a dream sight, The room was beautiful and welcoming and the view was amazing. The bed was unbelievably comfortable, it's my new standard for comparison among other hotels. The bathroom was a little awkward with it being so open. The shower...

If you're into hip and modern you will like this property. Management was very accommodating when our rooms were located in a noisy corner. Both bar and restaurant were excellent. Delicious breakfasts and friendly service! Hipster and couple friendly, not family forward.

My fiancé and I stayed at the W Austin this past weekend to celebrate his birthday and had a wonderful time. The staff was friendly and genuinely cared about our experience.
