I spent four nights at the W in a standard room - was unsure what to expect as my experience with W's before has been a bit hit and miss. Checking in the staff were super friendly - room was surprisingly big (although no coffee machine). Mini bar stocked with lots of tempting goodies and bathroom large - made even... More

I arrived at noon and had a 20 minute wait for my room to be ready. This was convenient given the lobby wifi. My room, on the 10th floor, was outfitted in a highly contemporary style and was very comfortable. The shower is a subway-tiled built-in which works quite well. Those traveling with a non-intimate companion should be aware that... More

We were in Austin for an event our daughter organized to benefit a nonprofit. The event raised + 65k. Hooray! Over 5 days we did over 45 hours of support services for the NGO. When it was time to rest the W was solid and our room was great. Nice bath and shower and living area. The only issue we... More

We stayed one night in Austin to visit. Staff was incredible even though it was super busy. Alice Cooper was playing the venue in the building - we didn't know that. We were treated like we were vips. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. A short walk to everything. We enjoyed Italic Italian near by and ran on the... More

If you want to hang out with a bunch of old people getting sloppy drunk in the pool, this is the hotel for you. Plus the pool is not big enough for the number of old drunks lounging around. The water was murky be about 4pm. The rooms are also starting to show wear and tear. Still okay, but not... More

We decided to stay here for a weekend trip to Austin to see a concert. We chose the W because of its location. Its close to a lot of restaurants, bars, and congress bridge if you want to check out the bats. We actually didn't mind the walk down to south congress. When it came to the the help everyone...

Great location, decent size room, & great amenities! Friendly staff, great pool, amazing restaurant! If you're into a modern&/or hip hotel, you will like this property. The crowd out by the pool consists largely of 20 somethings & hipsters. But the drinks are great the pool is huge so there is plenty of room to find your little spot. The... More

Have stayed twice at this hotel for a convention & few days of pleasure. Both times enjoyed pleasant & efficient service. Upon arrival this time our room smelled bad (musty maybe) and we were immediately moved to a different room with a better view. Be sure to ask for complimentary cold bottled water every time you come in at the... More
