Our expectation was definitely high as we knew The W branded hotels are usually the best hotels in town with their modern rooms and superb service - so choosing W Austin over others for our business trip to Austin was a no-brainer.
Our rooms were schick, comfortable and roomy with awesome view of Austin (oh and check out your room bathroom). The staff members were very friendly and definitely knew what they were doing. They even gave us complementary Accura car-ride promotion service (though we went just 5 blocks from our hotel to another hotel where our clients were staying...but that was pretty cool).
Also - if you are in Austin for business, checkout their conference facilities. We needed a room for roughly 15 people from early in the morning to late in the afternoon. Although we went over our allotted time they were perfectly okay with that and didn't bother us by interrupting our meeting to let us know the time was over (that happened to us at some other hotels we stayed in the past...). They had a very competent conference technician onsite who perfectly setup our phone, screen and projector as well as WiFi. Regan (their director of catering) did a fantastic job preparing our lunch (few of us were deathly allergic to certain ingredients and Regan offered us a pretty much customized menu). The meeting went well and our clients were certainly very happy that we hosted our counterparty (buyers) at W Austin.
All in all - whenever I head down to Austin, I will stay at W Austin. It's a schik, modern hotel where you feel so much cooler than if you were staying at an old, dingy looking nearby Marriott or Hilton. It's definitely good for both busienss and leisure. Looks like our team is going to be down in Austin soon.
