Great water for lap swimming in an unorthodox pool

We love to lap swim, or better yet, open water swim. At the Wet Deck the lap swimming is okay to good - early in the morning. No lane lines. Steps at each end of the pool. A bit... read more

We love to lap swim, or better yet, open water swim. At the Wet Deck the lap swimming is okay to good - early in the morning. No lane lines. Steps at each end of the pool. A bit of a squeeze for circle swimming - as just one at a time through these areas. And, at the end of... More

We arrived in Austin this morning, and the first thing we did was the W wet deck. Bobby Lipson made it the best authentic experience we found have had. He was so attentive and accommodating. He gave us great recommendations on where to hang out to get the best out of our trip here. We've had a perfect time so... More

Live locally so we go to the W for drinks often. We love the bar scene here, the bartenders are the best..super friendly and know how to pour a drink! They actually add to the great atmosphere. For couples or groups, the Bar at the W is highly recommended and a great place to have drinks before ACL concerts...as well... More

The pool itself is gorgeous. The for rent cabanas are gorgeous. The people who frequented it were gorgeous. My friends and I range from 36-46 in age. We felt fine being there, but there were others who showed up and left. The only bad thing that was truly bad was that they played rap ALL day and into the night.

Away Spa rocks! The spa’s design keeps with the W’s modern, yet artsy and eclectic aesthetic. When we walked into the spa, two very accommodating and friendly receptionists greeted us. The scent of the spa’s products was heavenly. The locker area was equally welcoming, with thoughtful touches and amenities everywhere. Our greeter brought us mimosas (hallelujah!) The wet deck sits... More

We went to the W pool Saturday for just drinks and some rays and left with the most memorable Austin W hotel experience you could ask for. John and Kelsey made the whole difference in us just having a good time and an amazing time filled with the best service one could ask for. They were there when you needed... More

Great venue to go and kick back with a friend or date and have a few cocktails. The W brand is always head and shoulders above most of the others and certainly they lead in the "cool factor"

Visited the wet deck during a couple of beautiful April days. Great way to kill time if you're looking to relax, have a cocktail and socialize.
