I'd like to start by saying I am not a huge fan of W hotels in general. I prefer to feel relaxed when I return to my hotel rather than feel like I am right back in the club.
The W in Austin was not that way. Sure, I got a glimpse of that scene for the 15 seconds I spent checking out the pool on Saturday afternoon, but it is 100% optional and avoidable. Everything from the moment we checked in was lovely. We were greeted with a glass of champagne at check in, which is always a nice touch after a long morning of travel.
The room was very spacious and comfortable and the staff were super helpful. I needed to buy hair gel and for some reason there is only one convenience store in downtown Austin. When I asked the concierge if they knew of a place where I could buy some, he offered to travel 6 blocks to the CVS to pick some up and deliver it to my room! I did not take him up on what I thought seemed like an absurd offer, but wow, that is impressive service.
