The hotel

Stay in the heart of it all at the W Austin, as unique, fun, and welcoming as the city itself. Conveniently situated in Downtown Austin, and just moments from the world-famous Austin City Limits, this hotel expertly blends modern decor with cosy touches, and plenty of southern charm! In the local area, you'll find an abundance of lively bars and eateries, but you can feel the buzz of the 'Live Music Capital of the World' right here in your hotel, too - the Record Room, part of the hotels dynamic Living Room bar area, is an ode to the city, and the TRACE restaurant serves authentic Texan flavour, made with local produce. What's more, the W is home to Austin's largest happy hour, accompanied by the sounds of DJs, and the occasional live performance. Fitness fanatics can keep up their routines at FIT, and sun-seekers can enjoy the heat at the WET deck. A true all-rounder, and an exciting place to lay your hat.

My daughter and I enjoy going to Austin for the Statesman Cap 10K and, even though it’s a splurge, we love staying at the W Austin because not only is it a great location, but we choose the W over others because we love the bar areas in the hotel. We booked online through our bank and didn’t go to their website, so we weren’t aware that they were closed for renovations and there was only a temporary bar set up. The entry into the hotel lobby changed and was difficult to get to and there was no reduction in room rate, which was $790 per night for a very basic 2 queen bed room, but also $64 parking fee!

Hotel is undergoing renovations, so things were a bit jumbled. Nice service, though, and the rooms are very nice. I would return but only after the renovations are complete. Valet parking is very expensive, and the breakfast service was a bit lacking.

On Feb 24 the my bag LV bag went missing out of my room . I had called house keeping to see if they maybe put it somewhere i didn’t see. I was told to look a few different places but my bag was no where to be found. The head of house keeping came to my room and together we turned the room upside down to look for it , but we found nothing . Security was called and i gave them a description as well pictures of the bad . Hoping maybe it was accidentally put in laundry that wasn’t the case . I was told the hotel director would be reaching out . I’ve made numerous calls and almost two weeks later i still haven’t heard from the director and still waiting to hear how they plan on solving the problem . It’s really frustrating . I wouldn’t suggest staying at this hotel as clearly they housekeeping is either thieves or careless with peoples personal items . I might add that i told housekeeping that i didn’t want to be serviced so i was surprised when i went to my room for my hound charger and found them in there . Really bad customer service. Read less

We stayed at this location because of the Austin Marathon. We loved it! Close enough to the start and the finish, but you don’t hear any noise from the event. The room was fancy and I really appreciated the complimentary coffee in the lobby. I also liked the Davines shampoo and conditioner provided, that’s very good stuff! The gym is very well… Read more

The room was fancy and I really appreciated the complimentary coffee in the lobby. I also liked the Davines shampoo and conditioner provided, that’s very good stuff! The gym is very well equipped especially for the people who like to do CrossFit (there is a rower and an assault bike ❤️ - first time I see this in a hotel!) . They also have 3 peloton bikes. I want to extend a special thank to Suzanne for her exceptional friendliness during my check in process. I really appreciated her dedication to provide amazing customer service! We will for sure come back! Thank you again ! Read less
