My friends and I drove down to Austin from Dallas one weekend for a quick visit. The W had an incredible pool that we immediately took advantage of. While expensive, drinks were great as was the service. There are also cabanas for rental. Rooms were very spacious, great bathrooms, and room service. Walking distance from 6th street (maybe 10 min... More

I chose this hotel to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and we had an amazing time. The customer service was excellent. I told the hotel concierge that it was her birthday and he did an excellent job by sending drinks up to the room and also a piece of cheesecake. The bar downstairs was also a great time. They have a... More

Our stay was fantastic. The check in with George was so smooth and Will delivered our bags promptly. To our surprise Alex had an amenity waiting for us when we opened our door. Thank you Alex! The room was absolutely beautiful and the view was stunning. With Can's amenities through out our stay we knew we would be back to... More

Perfect location across from the river. Great living room bar area that's open late enough with solid food. However, the service across the board is top notch. From the business center, to the bar tender, to the front desk. I befriended a bellman named Tim over my stay who was super helpful with city insights. So much so that on... More

Aside from everything else, the fine details of the hotel that are fantastic, John Jarrett in security was particularly helpful when I left some things behind. Kudos to the entire staff and thanks, John.

Awesome new addition to downtown Austin. The hotel has hip rooms and a giant bar/lounge area which is broken into multiple rooms, all with comfy pods of seating, and lighting themes. Great for drinks and catching up with friends. Hotel itself if beautiful, and staffed in classic W fashion, with helpful young professionals.

As others have echoed - here and other Starwood properties - the new key system is a big issue. It works, then locks out with phone and traditional keys. That by itself is a minor annoyance. The bigger issue is how the hotel handled it. The GM - who has been great on TripAdvisor, etc. with his email and phone... More

I enjoyed my stay from the start. The staff was helpful they even gave us suggestions of good places to eat. The hotel was clean and modern. Our room was clean and our bed was comfortable. We had a quiet stay and were able to rest well both nights we were there.

My wife and I have stayed at the W several times in the past (for special occasions or just a night on the town) and it has always been fantastic, our most recent stay was no exception! It had been some time since we celebrated my wife's B-day in a grand way so we decided on a night at the... More

Loved the location but, for the price of the room not worth the price! Very disappointed! Small room, small lobby, small bar area for the amount of people that was in there. Had to call about bill because it was "over charged" intentionally to make sure we could pay the bill!! REALLY?? Japanese soaking tub was a joke! W Hotel... More
