We had a great weekend experience at the W Austin, Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Room nice and comfortable. Upgraded our room because it was our 1st anniversary. The gym is the nicest hotel gym I have ever seen, We will definitely come back.

My husband and I recently made a brief stop at this hotel while on business. The staff was very nice and the accommodations were great! Also the location is close to many restaurants. In the haste of leaving our hotel for our next destination, we left behind a few important items that could not be replaced. My husband contacted the... More

My GF and I have been traveling together for 3 years, and the W Austin is our favorite hotel thus far. The staff is beyond courteous and friendly and helpful. We travel with a small dog and they helped set up a dog walker/sitter for when we wanted to go out alone for a few hours at night. We have... More

Enjoyed this hotel. Great location. If you have stayed at a W, this is a very typical hotel for this brand. I happen to like the modern décor and clean lines of the W brand. The bar was good, but pricey. The pool is smaller than most, but stylish. Liked that it was a salt water pool. Wish the pool... More

I'm a big fan of W hotels. The beds are the most comfortable I've found, the rooms are modern and the overall ambiance is hip and trendy. My only complain would be the over priced breakfast via room service.

My wife and I stayed at the W Austin just for one night. However, we were treated like royalty by all staff. It was also my wife's birthday and they upgraded our room, brought in a cheesecake and acknowledged her (and I) for our entire stay. The staff was all awesome and welcoming!! WE will be back for sure!

I like Starwood Hotels and W is my favorite brand but not all of them do the brand justice (I'm looking at you, W New Orleans French Quarter/ W Chicago Lakeshore). The W Austin is simply fantastic. Great food, awesome staff, the flexible "can do" attitude you expect from a W as well as modern, clean, well designed rooms. Pool... More

I stayed here 4 nights for a business conference we had on-site and couldn't be happier. Staff was friendly and super helpful. Fitness center was the best I have ever seen in any hotel and I travel extensively. The property and room was modern and stylish, and the location was terrific, easy walking distance to many of the best restaurants... More

The W Austin is incredible - like all W properties I've visited. We stayed in 2014. The Library bar is wonderful as is the outside bar. The rooms are great, too. The hotel is situated in downtown Austin making it easy to get anywhere. I recommend a stay if you're planning a trip to Austin!

This location is very convenient to anywhere in downtown Austin. The staff is very friendly and very customer oriented. It has similar 'vibes' to other W Hotels. Very nice bar area. Rooms are very modern and clean. My only complaint (& it's very surprising) is the wifi was poor. In a city as techie as Austin, I found it hard... More
