Rated 5 out of 5 by PatoHTX Wedding Night Made Easy
The Team at the W worked so well with our wedding planner to create the perfect post reception getaway. All out gifts, getaway bags and assorted goodies were amazingly laid out when we arrived… candles, flower petals, the lot. The team was very accommodating and did everything to make sure our stay was as amazing as could be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CoachWill Wonderful stay in great city
Hotel staff was friendly and helpful; property was trendy yet homey. The sales and marketing coordinator gave me a tour of the property as my sister in law looking to have her bachelorette party here. Strong nightlight vibe; several lounge areas; full spa; outdoor pool with chairs and private cabanas. Highly recommend for business and pleasure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Indyman123 Great vacation experience
From check in to checkout the time spent at the W was truly enjoyable. The hotel has a great location and offers modern, comfortable rooms. The staff goes out of its way to take care of your every need. The bars and lounges are great and the food at Trace, the hotel restaurant, is excellent. The pool provided a nice break from the summer heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jchiguy1 Great Experience
We've stayed here before and enjoy the W Austin more every time. The service is top notch and our Cool Corner Suite was in great shape and extremely comfortable. We also love the very complete gym and beautiful pool area. Elevators can, as others have said, be a bit slow but that is really our only criticism of an otherwise outstanding stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ryanandmichelle2012 Beautiful Hotel & Friendly Staff
The hotel was beautiful and amazing. Everything you'd expect from a W Hotel. Also the staff was very friendly and helpful. The concierge was top notch. They gave us several suggestions of places to eat and things to do weeks before our trip. The overall experience was very good and can't wait to stay again the next time we visit Austin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JenniferToronto Beautiful hotel, Loved the decorating and esthetic
Room was loud. Not sure where the night club was but it sounded like it was right near my room, pulsating music as I tried to go to sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by unityadvance Tour Manager to the Stars
It all starts with the Sales Manager. Generally I do not use Starwood Hotels because of numerous problems with billing. However W Austin has a Sales manager that put in the effort to understand those if us in the music business. She really gets it and won my business. As long as she is there I am with the W Austin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Canedog First time in Austin
I have become accustomed to high quality service and sheer "cool" factor when staying at W hotels around the country - the W Austin did not disappoint. In fact, it may be one of my favorite W hotels! The pool deck is amazing and fun. Location is perfect. Just a great experience - can't wait to get back to Austin and the W hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TravelManager Such Mixed Feelings
This hotel could be so great...and because my feelings are so mixed, I've put together a list of pros/cons below:
Super convenient location downtown
Wonderful views of Town Lake and the Lavaca bridge
Responsive room service - always delivered sooner than the expectation
My last day there, my room was cleaned by a true professional - I walked in and was "wowed" by the level of cleaning detail.
Bathroom didn't have a tub (I need to know this when making my reservation)
Room was a bit cramped
The lobby is a night club in the evening
Some of the people who stay here are a little full of themselves (i.e. bridal parties)
The bed was not comfortable - in an era with so many hotel chains that specialize in a comfortable bed, it really is a must have.
Staff in the gym was non-existent and when he showed up was put out that I was calling the front desk for assistance. For such an amazing gym facility, the service should be on-par.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BudaSue W Hotel Austin on a Saturday night
Hotel room very comfortable. Hotel staff needs to work on making guests feel as important as the crowd in the nightclub. A separate entry for the club is a must for the comfort of paying hotel guests.
This is the 2nd time we have encountered this during a W Austin stay. Will probably try a different downtown hotel next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by melo123 Luxurious Hip Hotel close by sixth street
My friends and I were on a road trip and decided to stay close to 6th street.
I redeemed for a night at this hotel with 4800 points and 90$/night.
the hotel decor was hip and luxurious like any other W hotels. The beds were comfortable which prepped us for our long trip home after a night full of party on sixth street.

Room was great-- really large and very comfy! Loved the separate seating room. We had a corner suite. My only complaint--- I wish the AC had worked better. We got up in the middle of the night bc we were sweating and our AC said it was on 65*! Need to work on that. The bed was super comfy and the bathtub was amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DavidAL Excellent family stay
Just returned from a wonderful stay at the W Austin. Very convenient location, and a wonderful staff. The pool area was very nice (a little cold), and we very much enjoyed the living rooms downstairs. Will most certainly stay here again next time in Austin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dub43 The People Made It Special
We had an outstanding time at the W in downtown Austin this part weekend. Every single person employed at the hotel that we dealt with was sharp and had excellent attitudes. It was apparent that they are excited about the impressive hotel that they represent and I plan on staying there many times in the future.

Not knowing the Austin area I was somewhat anxious about what to expect about the hotel
and the surrounding area. NOT TO WORRY.
The staff was VERY helpful . Great room and
everyone was Texas friendly. Enjoyed a delicious
lunch at the hotel .\, but casual dining close by.
I look forward to my next visit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ken337 Austin one of my favorite W Hotels
The people here are awesome. I stay here whenever I come in to town. This trip my family came along and the waiter at dinner noticed my daughter was under the weather and not very hungry...after dinner we arrived to a bowl of chicken soup for her. That kind of service is why I come back time after time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jechho wonderful hotel and location
Excellent hotel. Wonderful spg suite upgrade. Not much negative to report – the only let down was the spg platinum breakfast benefit, which consisted of three items + coffee you had to pick in the bar area. Very high school cafeteria-style, and not the luxury and quiet breakfast one could hope for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Geedub Thought of every detail. Amazing staff and facility
Can't say enough about how great the staff was at the W for our anniversary stay. Surprised us with a handwritten card and gift when I mentioned our reason for staying passing. Took care of us for anything we needed. Hotel is beautiful and rooms so pleasant. Wish we could have stayed all weekend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveToTravel23 Great place to stay
I stay at the W Hotel every week for business travel and have never been disappointed. The staff is very friendly, the location is convenient to nearby restaurants/bars, and the rooms are comfortable. I especially love it when I get a suite overlooking the river because the view is fantastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dharris501 Very Accomodating
Service was great. Room service food was exceptional, although slightly limited menu. But I'll take small menu and great food over larger menu and mediocre food every time.
Room and amenities worth the price; a little swanky for me, but great assortment of extras.
Overall great stay!!

The hotel overall was beautiful! The only issues I had was the bartenders attitude at Pool Area. I understand it was the long 4th July weekend and you probably didn't want go work but no excuses for being rude to others! Other than that incident, food was amazing too! Enjoyed the stay!

Rated 4 out of 5 by dibster No coffee in the room?!?!?
Hey I had a great stay and the staff were awesome - but two MINOR things bothered me
1. no one refilled the soap and stuff the next day - I might have signed up for the green thing, but I didn't get any points either
2. How come you don't have some coffee in the room?

Rated 2 out of 5 by txboi44 my stay at the W austin.
I'm was NOT impressed with the W Austin at all. Very disappointed with miss communication . On charges for invidentls etc. My room was basic the shower leaked water into the carpet. I have stayed at many W hotels , and will NOT stay at the W Austin anymore. Not impressed at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Becca75 Tub and bathroom not very clean
The staff were lovely, but I arrived at 330 and there were food trays in the hall until 9am the next morning and the bathtub was filty and lots of long black hair on the carpet. Not so romantic. Other than that, the staff were delightful. I didn't want to eat in my room, though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TayTay Unfriendly staff
While the facilities and amenities at the hotel were lovely, I repeatedly ran into trouble with the staff. I rented a cabana at the pool for a few hours and did not receive proper attention from the staff, and when I did, the staff seemed forced and unhappy to be offering help.

I really enjoyed my stay here with my significant other. The rooms were nicely decorated and clean. The bar / club in the first floor was better than what I was expecting, having good atmosphere, people, drink selection, and people. Overall, I was very pleased with my stay.

There are very few things I can count on. The staff at the W Austin I ALWAYS know will make my stay exemplary. I have choices. They are the reason I always go back.

Thoroughly modern and luxurious experience in the best Austin has to offer in hippie sheik. Excellent bars, pool area, lobby and attention to service. The room was very comfortable and the staff are waiting for requests to serve. You owe yourself a stay at the W Austin
