Perfect hotel for a staycation in Austin. We were greeted with champagne for NYE and the staff were incredibly accommodating to any request we had.

Beautiful hotel but furniture little worn. Very friendly staff! Loved the amenities. If you are bringing kiddos watch out for pool events. Can be adult only. Great location.

Great place to stay, both for business and leisure..

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: no self parking garage
Great people at the check-in counter, very helpful and very nice. The room was perfect, good services, clean. The concierge was very helpful to help me with the rental vehicle delivery when I was out. However, i wish there is a self parking garage, since I hesitate to let someone i barely knew to drive and park the car for me. I wish there are more W hotels around the world so I can stay with them.

not worth the money

Pros: Close restaurants
I paid full price for a suite, and while the room itself was generally nice, the service was horrible. I expected so much from this place, and not getting even the minimum level of attention certainly disappointed. It would take a lot for me to spend this kind of money again at this hotel, only to have the same poor customer experience.

Great way to see Austin

Usually, I don't go for higher end hotels when I travel, because I go to see the city, not the hotel. The W is different. This isnt just a place to stay when youre in Austin, its part of the city worth seeing. Its a local landmark that no trip to Austin is complete without visiting.

Great location!

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet
I really enjoyed my stay in Austin. I love to explore the city by foot and the W was in a location that allowed me to walk to the South of Congress area, Lady Bird Trail and a short distance from all the 6th Street fun. I stayed the night before Veteran's Day so I do feel the rate I paid was definitely on the higher side but overall my stay was enjoyable so I was able to forgive that one little thing. One little con...it was difficult to keep my room cool on a super sunny day with the way my windows faced but what a view!
