    Like all W's I have stayed in, this W is absolutely beautiful. The rooms have unique design elements that I am a huge fan of. The location in the trendy 2nd street district makes the W a perfect fit for this location. The lobby and the W Living room are fantastic. I really like meeting people in one of the many bar areas downstairs for a drink before heading out. They have a really RED-inspired bar/lounge area with bottle service available. Another highlight is the rooftop pool. The rooms here are quite expensive though and can range from $250- over $500. The service is unbelievable as expected from any W property. This is definitely one of the trendiest hotels you can stay in Austin.

    The W is one of my favorite hotels as far as chains go. I was curious how they would style the Austin location. And it was nice the same W design with a little "keep Austin weird" flair.

    The best hotel in Austin. There is always something going on and is fantastic for people watching. Good place to grab a cocktail if you don't want to stay here.

    When I was in Austin for a business trip, they had to evacuate guests from the newly opened W hotel because the was falling out of the windows, injuring more than 5 people. I am normally a big fan of the W, so was a bit surprised.

    I have not been back since, but I assume they have fixed the issue.

    Awesome bar downstairs. Amazing pool upstairs, and available to the public on the weekends. Wonderful service. Great music, and live music here too! Very cozy environment.

    Definitely the place to stay if you want to see and be seen, walking in to the W in Austin feels like stepping into NYC. From the ultra-chic lobby, complete with lounge furniture and even a chess set, to the cabana-decked, waterfall-adorned rooftop lap pool, amenities at the W reek of luxurious indulgence. The rooms are comfortable and furnished in grey tones with red accents—and the views get better the higher up you stay. The full service spa features aromatherapy steam rooms, and the people watching in the bars even turns up a few movie stars. A very cool way to see the city!

    One of the high end places in Austin. Fun place to party without the normally obnoxious bartenders associated with regular W's.
