Each time I have stayed at the W in Austin the staff has been unbelievably nice. The hotel has arguably the best location in Austin. The bar is first rate. If you're looking for a foolproof great place to stay this is the place

It is a premium quality hotel at moderate prices. Door service and valet were very friendly. Front desk and concierge were helpful. Rooms were nice although teh bathroom layout NO DOOR was quite odd. Needed to order a shower curtain to put in front of the glass shower for privacy. Great lobby and lounge which doubles as a club at...

I was excited to be at this hotel for an overnight business meeting. I've stayed at the Dallas W and was expecting a similar high end vibe but was disappointed. The staff was attentive, but the hotel itself felt like a low to moderately priced residential loft building. Contemporary but worn and tired. My room was tiny with a low...

This hotel is gorgeous--clean and comfortable and located in a great part of town. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance, and the Austin City Limits concert venue is actually attached to the building. My room and bathroom were spacious and on the sixth floor I had a veranda overlooking the beautiful roof-top pool (in the summer...

During F1 week, it is a quite busy here, so the bars and restaurants are busy and have a great energy. Staff at the W are welcoming and try to assist at every move. Rooms are odd shapes, and our room must have the smallest king size bed in the USA. This is Texas too... so no idea how anyone...

While this hotel is expensive, if you want a great location in downtown Austin with a beautiful hotel you should choose this place. The pool is great, the bar is fun, and the rooms were very nice. I went for business and loved staying at the W.
