I had a great experience at the W. Everything was high class and contemporary. Very impressed with service and amenities. Pool was classy and enjoyable. Even met someone famous! Park valet or in parking garage across street.

This was my first extended stay in Austin. We stay 4 nights at the W hotel. - The hotel is in a perfect location. The lobby, the bar, the pool and the rooms are all really nice. This is a modern hotel and close to all the action in Austin. - Just down the street is a bike rake that... More

The W at Austin didn't fail to impress. The same W standards were upheld, the hotel being stylish and well appointed, the staff being well trained and courteous at all times. The location is excellent for discovering the centre of Austin on foot. Pool is a nice design feature for relaxing in but pretty ineffective for any type of swimming.... More

One of the most enjoyable hotel experiences I have had. From accommodating me with a room although I arrived early to just an overall sense of appreciation by the staff for my staying there. The trip was really made though by Christopher who ran trace there. He was phenomenal and truly put a finishing touch on an already memorable trip.... More

My friends and I stayed at the W Austin last Saturday for a "Girls Night Out" and had such a wonderful time. From the moment we checked in, the kind staff greeted us and made us feel so welcome, as if they were greeting friends of their own. Our room was very stylish & contemporary. Loved how bright and airy... More

So, here it is, another W. It's in a great location, close for a nice walk on the lake and to get pretty much anywhere. The challenge is that it's a W, and while they are fancy, they also are sassy, and the concept of "early check in" even on a rudimentary weekday in June is an issue. Though, the... More

We had a stay-cation at the W and I was very pleased with the level of customer service I received at this hotel. The front desk staff were lovely and very helpful throughout our stay. As for the rooms, the in room amenities were fantastic and the beds were very comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel!

We went to the spa for a couples massage on Saturday and had the most restful day one could ask for due to Shannon's ability to go above and beyond to accommodate to us. We arrived a little early for our appointments and she made sure that we had a great time using the spa facility in the interim. She... More

Though we are in our 70s, my friend and I decided to try the W. We enjoyed everything about the hotel, and the staff could not have been more welcoming. Aside from the wild pool party on Sunday (we enjoyed a brief peek at that), the accommodations constantly reminded us we were on a short vacation. From the "Good Morning,... More
