“Chic - just like a W should be”
Reviewed 24 October 2012

I was very impressed with this W. The common spaces were large and had the classic W modern feel that still kept true to Texas. I was upgraded to a 1-bed suite which made it easier for my friends to sprawl out and enjoy our 1-night stay. The bathroom was quite large which never surprises me with Ws as they know the importance of a sexy bathroom that looks out into downtown.

Room Tip: Have brunch at the hotel. It's cheaper than you might think and it's GOOD.

Stayed here for a girls getaway for 4 days. Attentive, friendly, helpful service, big modern rooms. All the amenities. Loved the location for walking Austin. Plenty of delicious food choices near the hotel and easy walking to the music clubs.

I was standing in a long line during ACL weekend and then I was introduced to "Port".

Not only was he attentive but he asked me a few questions about what i like and then made the perfect cocktnail.

So thank you
Best cocktail I've had in town!
Definitely going to come back to get a drink from Port!

A fantastic place to stay. Great service, amenities, and restaurant. Try the homemade pasta. It's very rich but absolutely delicious. Despite being extremely busy all weekend with the music festival, they were able to accommodate my early check in needs. The rooms are very modern and well kept. I will be staying here for all my events in the Austin are moving forward.

I am so impressed with everyone that works at the W Austin. By far one of the best places to stay for work or pleasure. Kaleb and Marcus at the front desk and Nicole in concierge were very helpful and did a great job following up with my requests. Javier, Sean, Christopher , and Scott in dining were so accommodating and always remembered my preferences from previous visits. No matter how busy they are, they always make sure to stop and say hello. If you are entertaining high profile clientele, the W's security team is incredibly well trained and professional. James and Jeff make sure their team takes care of everyone that comes for a visit.

Really enjoyed staying here. The hotel is walking distance to some good dining/night life options as well as the convention center, where I was attending a conference. Amenities are top notch. Beds were very comfortable. Staff were professional. I was impressed.

Stayed for a long weekend 10/5-10/8. From the moment we were greeted by the parking staff until we checked out we were impressed by the friendliness of the staff. The room was spacious and nicely appointed. If you would like to walk around downtown Austin this is the place to stay. It is close to just about everything. A special thank you to Gus Gonzales in Security who was so helpful after we had left the hotel only to realize that we had forgotten our passports. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.
