We are very well traveled, but this was the first time we every stayed at a "W" hotel. We live in Austin, Tx., and went downtown to see a concert (Alice Cooper at the Moody Theater). We thought we'd stay downtown after the concert, to enjoy the Austin ambiance - and not have to drive home after the concert :).... More

Weekend getaway with my girlie! Had a blast but the pool area was pretty dirty and overly packed. Couldn't even get in. Great location however. Tons of clubs and bars around. Short walk to dinner at 2nd Street and brunch at Jo's!

I visited Austin for the first time in early August and had an excellent experience at The W. The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. The various restaurant/bar options were great! My room was spacious and attractive. The hotel was quiet. There were many younger people and families in the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Overall I am very pleased with our stay. This is our second time staying at the hotel for a vacation in a city we love and live in. It is a beautiful hotel with great amenities. Our room overlooked the river and the pool area. We also tried the spa facilities (Away Spa) for the first time. It was real... More

I stayed here on business and had an absolutely perfect stay. The front desk staff was excellent, courteous, helpful and professional. The room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and luxurious. Breakfast was delicious and bountiful. Location was convenient and easy to access. Will DEFINITELY come back!

This is probably the first time I have stayed at a "modern" hotel like the W. While the furnishings were nice and all the staff were great, the room didn't seem to warrant the extra price. Except for the huge shower. That was wonderful. That being said, the restaurant was 5 star, the workout facility and spa was incredible. They... More

Love this place! This was the third time I have stayed here. The rooms are great. Very modern and pretty spacious for a standard room. They have a great spa, although I will mention it isn't a true spa in that there isn't a hot tub or great waiting area in between treatments. There is an individual steam room which... More

Loved my stay at the W. The rooms are amazing, staff is very friendly and courteous and the pool area is beautiful. I'll definitely be back and highly recommend the W-Austin to anyone visiting from out of town.

We had a pleasant stay in modern accommodations. Not the best for business travelers. In my opinion, younger travelers would really enjoy. We had a couple issues not addressed by staff until a second or third request. Probably wouldn't revisit, though I appreciate the design efforts.
