A sound check on the W Austin scene sets the stage, taking sophistication all the way up to eleven. Headlining the famed 2ND Street District collective of local boutiques, restaurants and music venues—the heart of the city—the hotel pulsates at the dynamic intersection of art, politics, education, technology and sports, charming both the smart and attractive.
Designed with the environment in mind, the hotel's exterior plaza faces Lady Bird Lake and its prevailing winds, so we always stay cool with "Austin's natural air conditioning." Positioned to allow a natural merge with traffic and so pedestrians enjoy 300 feet of sidewalk space shaded by large trees, weathered steel and exposed concrete bring an authentic, natural feel to life as a matte, reflective surface changes the building's color and appearance with the sky—just Austin being Austin. Feel the exhilaration of glowing in dappled light as you walk in under a metal arch with cutouts, recreating the experience of sunlight coming through the trees on the Lady Bird Lake trail. For those with an ear for music, next door is the new home of the legendary Austin City Limits, where music comes alive in the "Live Music Capital of the World."
