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

The w is a beautiful hotel. But luxury hotels should have excellent service, the W does not. The concierge was so unhelpful and unfriendly. She was the epitome of aloof and seemed to be in her own world (woman with short blond hair). We went to the bar on a Friday night. There was unfortunately no place for the hotel... More

I had a great time hanging out with friends near the pool and in the bar. Great for young adults, but I would not take my young kids here. There is tons to do in the area and lots of places to eat nearby. The location could not be any better.

My wife and I enjoyed two nights at the W last week while i was on business. The hotel offers a good location in Austin with fantastic modern rooms. She was able to enjoy pool time and walking about town while i attended business meetings. Mike from Lafayette, California

Hubby & I stayed here one night. It was unlike our usual choices such as a Hyatt or Hilton. It is very modern...concrete floors in the lobby, clean lines, geometric wallpaper and a sleek pool. The staff is very friendly and helpful. But, parking is ridiculous,about 30 or a little more per night! Wi-Fi...$15/day! There are snacks in your room,... More

We stayed at the W in Austin over the 4th of July holiday. After bad experiences with the W Hotel in Dallas (all of the staff go out of their way to make you feel looked down upon, unwelcome and uncool) we were very pleasantly surprise with our stay at the W in Austin. All of the staff was genuinely... More
