Without a doubt, the best feature of this hotel is the location. You are steps away from tons of restaurants, bars, and live music. Second best feature is a huge gym with all new equipment. The rooms are just average (no different then a Westin or Marriott), and the staff is very aloof. I also thought the pool scene was... More

The staff and management made this a memorable stay for my 40th! From the upgrade to the suite to the cake and wine waiting for us after a party in the Living Room. It was top notch!! I'm a loyal Starwood guest and do about 100 nights a year. It's nice to know we have such a great property in... More

Hosted a bachelorette party in Austin and we stayed here because it had a pool, a bar, and the location was great. The rooms were clean and comfortable. At the pool, we rented a cabana, which was nice -we could get out of the sun and away from the crowd. Overall it was a good choice for the bachelorette.

Me and a group of 6 friends stayed at the W for a bachelorette weekend. Over the course of two nights, we had a pretty awful experience. On the first night, one of our rooms was broken into at 4:30 am by a drunken man who climbed in through our patio. When we called down to the front desk, they... More

We were in Austin for one night to attend an event at the convention center in downtown Austin. Booked this hotel last minute via priceline and named our own price. Got an awesome King room for $100. Easy to get to, and the customer service was exceptional. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The onsite restaurant had a delicious... More

From the moment you step onto the property you feel welcome. Spacious room, comfortable bed. Will definitely be back. Also had a very nice breakfast at Trace, the on site restaurant. Great customer service.

Always fan of W hotels and this does not disappoint. The hotel has look and feel of many other W's but more spacious. Service was outstanding and the corner suites very spacious and quite. The lunch was excellent and staff very friendly especially DJIBOUTI at front desk. I have historically stayed at Four Seasons in town but W is better... More

This was one of the most beautiful W hotels I've stayed at in terms of architecture and facilities. Here are some pros and cons: Pros -best Starwood hotel gym I've seen yet; facilities were enormous, had tons of equipment, free weights, and a lifting station (they even provided free, extra long headphones, which was great because regular headphones are always...

The W is nice at first glance, but once you are there it's apparent the hotel took some shortcuts to save money. The furniture is cheap in the rooms, the hotel restaurant had a small menu of average tasting food, and the hotel "club," was basically a bar/lounge. I would say the main attraction is the pool. Just a rectangular... More
