I've stayed at the following Austin hotels all within the last four years: The Four Seasons, The Stephen F. Austin, The Hyatt and The Driskill. This week I had the pleasure of staying at the W which will no doubt be my hotel of choice going forward when visiting this great city. The service was spot-on in all respects: attentive without being overbearing, from the bellman to the concierge to the valets to the bar staff. The vibe of the hotel is great but it's still appropriate for business meetings and plenty of peace and quiet can be had in the beautiful rooms. I had a lakefront "spectacular" room which was furnished in the typical W modern style. It was adequately spacious with great features such as a high-end iphone charger music player (e.g. not "I home"), a beautiful subway tile shower with shaving mirrors built in and a well stocked mini bar. A great 42" flat screen and I loved the black and white photo of Willie Nelson jogging in a race in our room. The bar was great for drinks and dinner; the location is ideal as you are plenty close to Austin's nightlife but removed enough for quiet and access to Lake Austin's jogging trails. Great free coffee in the AM and reasonably priced breakfast tacos and pastries to go (it's nice not being forced to eat in a high-end restaurant. My biggest regret: we only had one night!
