We've stayed on several occasions and love the W more each time. The design is incredible... ok so you have to be open minded. The first time we stayed there we thought the room didn't have a bathroom - lol! The art is fantastic. The food at the on site restaurant interesting & delicious - love them for having fried...

The hotel was new when we stayed there and was spotless. There are no bathtubs in the regular rooms, and because we had a toddler who couldn't use the shower, Management generously upgraded us to a Corner room. Service was impeccable, the restaurant had great food. The hotel is small, and the rooms are not large, but the architect had... More

Hotel is very nice, a little pricey but the location is great and you can easily walk to everything. Very modern hotel and during ACL festival they have complimentary shuttles and it's a quick walk to the ACL busing. Also just a few blocks walking distance to the fun bar area.

Had a great few experiences with the AWAY Spa while in Austin for SXSW this year. I was on a particularly busy team visiting Interactive this year, and this spot was just an oasis. Had a great blowout with Tinita and my nails were done to perfection. Will definitely be back to enjoy. Please give the girls a shout out... More

Great place. Pool was incredible amongst all the high buildings. Private cabanas. Attentive staff. Accommodations and amenities were first class. Hallways and open areas looked more like a club than a hotel. Would go back in a heartbeat.

This is a busy hotel, but still maintains the W vibe. Staff is friendly and professional. The room fits the W brand as being colorful. Although I did not have the opportunity to visit the W's lounge on the first floor, when I walked by it was busy and loud with people enjoying themselves. In order to get to the... More

We stayed at the W recently for what was to be a warm couples get away weekend but thanks to global warming we were followed down by the polar plunge. The rooms at the W are small but centrally located. Since the weather was a freezing, icy mess we found the four common bar relaxation rooms to be quite welcoming... More

It feels like a relatively new hotel. It is a contemporary downtown hotel that appeals more toward younger working generation. It has shades of gray and reds with very clean lines. There is plenty of staff to help you with anything you need. Hotel rooms do not have any drawers but rather cubbies. The shower and wash room area is... More
