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 cindy001 Hotel was nice and clean
The service was very good, the room was very comfortable, nice and clean. I was a little disappointed that there was no refrigerator and microwave, but other then that the room was great. I was very pleased that you are pet friendly. I did not bring mine on this trip, but will consider you in the future because of this.

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 george0111 great hotel, but consistent wait for valet parking
I had (and continue to have) fantastic stays at the W. The staff is incredible. The only sore spot for me is that I frequently end up having to wait a looong time for my car -- and there isn't really a self park option.
Last week I didn't get my car until close to 8am even though I called down around 7:25am

Very rarely do all the boxes get ticked, but the W Austin certainly hit the spot. From the chic bars on the lobby level to the deceptively laid back staff who were all knowledgable, keen to help and above all friendly and accessible.
You know, we felt special when we stayed there.

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 5 out of 5 by Eric900 Always an Excellent Stay
My wife and I have lodged at several W hotels throughout North America and this is our favorite W by far. The service is consistently exemplary and the rooms are awesome! During our last stay, we had the pleasure of meeting Andrea (bar staff) and Louie (bar manager) who helped make our recent stay another great one.

We came for a wedding. We enjoyed the amenities, the location, and the eco-friendly environment. The wedding was lovely on the 2nd floor terrace. The reception was well organized and the food delicious. The parking attendants, and front desk were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our visit to the close-by farmers market on Saturday.

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.

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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by abe2ooo my stay at the W
li found the following things that need to be addressed
I ordered dinner at the hotel and the portion was to say the least more of a tapas serving than a dinner serving
the A/C vent was right over my head
the price of parking was a little excessive especially when you had to wait 15 min to get your car.

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 4 out of 5 by cparadise Summer Stay at WHotel ATX
Enjoyed my stay very much - the pool deck, dining, spa, and room all exceeded expectations. I was upset that as a SPG, a late check out request was not granted and a random charge was added to my bill. Although it was resolved, it was an inconvenience I wouldn't have expected from a W hotel.

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 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.

Unfortunately my room had no bath tub and i dislike showers. When I spoke to another member of the group the same response-sorry my room had no tub either. Otherwise rooms totally satisfactory.
Restaurant staff pleasant. Restaurant poorly located as have to go through two lounges to get there from lobby.

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 4 out of 5 by dula Excellent service from staff
I was here for a business meeting and the staff was very attentive, providing excellent service (serving meals, filling water glasses, etc.). I'd left an item in my car (valet parked) and the attendant went to my car to retrieve the item and leave it at the front desk for me. No fuss.

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.

I stay at the W Austin every chance I can get when I come to Austin. Simply stated, it does everything right. As the title says, "Awesome hotel; awesome location; awesome food; awesome people." There's no better to stay in Austin, and that definitely includes the Four Seasons.

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 Bessy 5 days of relaxation and luxury
We spent 5 days at the W Austin and thoroughly enjoyed hanging out at the Wet Pool and the communal areas. When we asked, our requests were responded to very soon. The shopping in the immediate area, as well as the restaurants, were plentiful and within walking distance. We hated to leave!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColonelMike Love the W but had one problem today
I have stayed at the W Austin many times - even before I was an SPG member. I have eaten at Trace dozens of times as well. Having recently moved back to Texas but to San Antonio this time, we often visit the W while in Austin. Our English Bulldog, Chesty Puller, is generally with us. Today, my wife and daughter went to the W for lunch while in Austin. One reason that they went is because the W is dog friendly. They were in the record room lounge and were going to order some lunch there - as we have done many, many times before. However, a W employee named Larry (tall African American) came and told them that they were not welcome there with a dog. My wife asked if he was new because we have been taking our dog there since they first opened and we lived two blocks away. This man was rude and made my wife feel like she did something wrong with a new policy. His rude demeanor and lack of understanding was not what we have become used to at the W. This will make us rethink our future plans at this property.

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.

My first stay at a W and must say I was impressed. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful and acknowledged me each time I left/returned to the hotel. The "living room" concept of the lobby lounge was very interesting and Trace was full of energy the night we attended,
