I stayed here for 6 nights on a recent business trip which would normally be enough to put my off most hotels for life. However, in the case of the Westin, the best thing I can say is that I will return on my next visit to Austin.
While other reviews have commented about smells, I stayed on the 5th floor and did not have any issue with dampness or smells. Overall, I found the hotel to be a good business type hotel in a location which is full of shops and restaurants. The rooms were a reasonable size, the internet worked well, the beds were incredibly comfortable and the air conditioning worked well and was very quiet. Some of the previous comments about water leaking from the shower and the lack of toiletries are spot on, but for me these were not major issues. I also found the breakfast buffet was very boring after a day or two, but this would not stop me staying here again.
The one note of caution is that this hotel is located some distance from downtown Austin - at least a 15 minute drive in off peak times. Again, this was not an issue for me, but if you want to be in downtown Austin, I would recommend staying elsewhere.
