This Hotel has a great location in Austin. Close (walking distance) to many of the places we wanted to visit. The Staff is very welcoming and will do all they can to make your stay comfortable. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Great beds too! We had a wonderful stay.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 September 2016

I arrived at noon and had a 20 minute wait for my room to be ready. This was convenient given the lobby wifi. My room, on the 10th floor, was outfitted in a highly contemporary style and was very comfortable. The shower is a subway-tiled built-in which works quite well. Those traveling with a non-intimate companion should be aware that...

We live just outside of the city but far enough away to justify an overnight getaway every now and then. The W is my favorite. It's chic and elegant. Rooms are plush, stylish, and comfy. Service is impeccable. We didn't visit the pool the last time but it was lovely the first time. The bar is pricy but worth it.

Very good location, rooms are well arranged and the lounge has some of the best people watching in town. There are several rooms inside the same lounge, one has a tv for sports, one has a DJ etc, the best part of the place. The pool is small but it gets decent amount of sun and service was pretty good.

I loved the design of the rooms at this hotel, a very spacious bathroom and oversized shower were located behind the bedroom and my room had a nice view of Town Lake. Cool Lounge areas in this property as well. "W" properties tend to be a little "hipster" - but generally fun for folks under 55 ! Staff was very...

I'll list the positives first: great location in down town Austin, Saturday night had a DJ and a fun club/lounge vibe. Negatives: asked for early check in and late check out so we could enjoy the pool/gym/spa before flying home - which was declined because they were fully booked. Typically even fully booked W's can do this for SPG or...
