We had a great time in Austin this summer and one of the best parts was the W Hotel It's beautiful, groovy, comfortable, a great location and they were very nice! I left some clothes in the closet, checked out and came home. Not until I unpacked a much lighter suitcase did I realize what I was missing. They found... More

Our stay at the W was more than we had ever expected it to be. The staff went above and beyond every chance they had making sure we were more than taken care of. Our first day at the pool we were shown true hospitality from 2 people in particular. John and Brittany. Thank you so much for showing us... More

Perfect location to enjoy the best Austin has to offer! The staff was great! The pool offered a great escape before we got to the serious business of having a blast at the area bars. ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE!

I'm from Texas, I'm use to hot weather. I am under 40 and love the atmosphere. But the air conditioning at the W is horrible. I was there a week ago with 8 other couples and everyone had the same experience...way to hot. To the point where I won't go again.

A friend recommended this hotel and we could not have a better experience! My boyfriend and I visited this hotel for a couple of days in July. We were so excited we stayed here!

My wife and I stayed at the W for a long weekend. The rooms and amenities are what you would expect. The location is very convenient to all downtown attractions. There are readily cabs available. However, we mostly walked our used Uber. The concierge was extremely helpful in finding reservations and attractions. The door man make you feel at home.... More

Downtown Austin has quite a few aging hotels. Even if they are well rated, we prefer to stay in newer properties if they are available. The problem is that during higher demand periods, the newer hotels raise their prices significantly. We recently had an opportunity to stay at this hotel during a slower time when prices were more in line... More

The W Hotel in Austin is ideally located in downtown Austin. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The beds were comfortable, the rooms clean, and most of the little things were done right. (My teenage son especially enjoyed the odd fact that they change the rugs in front of the lobby elevators three times a day, so they read... More

Decor is very modern, valet and front desk made us feel very special, great location, nice snack bar options in room. The only negative is the pool. Small, crowded and variable sunshine based on location of your chair and the sun. The pool is for people that want to mingle and hangout. Pleasant experience overall.

I spent 3 days at The W on a business conference trip. It is very relaxing & elegant. The only negative was not having coffee in the room. I must have my coffee when I wake up. The ambience in the lobby, lounge and meeting rooms was exquisite. No problems with the audio/visual systems during the conference.
