The Westin Austin Downtown

Austin, Texas

Virgin rating

The hotel

There’s a reason Austin is named ‘The Live Music Capital of the World’, and staying here you’ll find out why. Just a stones throw from the blues clubs, country bars and food trucks of the Sixth Street Entertainment District, and the legendary live music nightclub Antone’s is directly across the street. The music theme is carried on inside the hotel, with subtle decorations such as the woodwork guitar design behind the front desk, which exemplifies their attention to detail throughout the hotel. The rooftop bar and lounge is a particular highlight, with firepits for those chilly nights, and cabanas to relax poolside with a cocktail in hand, overlooking the Austin skyline. The views are also fantastic from the room, with floor to ceiling windows – and upgrading to a Corner room will make them even more spectacular.

Great stay! I stayed for work and have to say the food, drinks and vibe were great, really central too and the staff were very kind and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again for my next work trip to Austin, cool rooftop bar and pool too!

Fantastic service and amazing food. Bri was very nice and her service was excellent. The rest of the staff was very kind as well. Will definitely be back soon. Chorizo tacos and french toast is a must. The freshly squeezed juice was so refreshing. See you next time Bri 😆

She was so sweet and helped my daughter out with her burn on her finger, she was very talkative, compassionate and thoughtful. She had a great personality and was so so sweet. She made great suggestions for our order, your very lucky to have her on your team.

Jillian was the best waitress. Helped us with choosing from the menu. She gave us all her favorite dishes which we choose and it did not disappoint. She is especially sweet and helped a lot with a damaged finger. We hope she wins this trip for she deserves it so much!
