Modern rooms, farm-to-table cuisine and rooftop pool and bar
Pricey internet and parking fees
Surrounded by some of Austin's favorite entertainment joints and within walking distance of major attractions like the Austin Bats and Zilker Park, The W Austin puts you at the epicenter of the action. Its ultra-chic design may seem somewhat out of place in this funky city, but recent guests said that the guest rooms and amenities live up to the W's reputation. The hotel did infuse a hint of the city's "weird" culture into the decor: Rooms feature throw pillows with brightly stitched designs, offsetting the serene blue hues that envelop the space. Like Austin itself, the W Austin earns high praise from recent guests for its friendly, fun atmosphere, claiming that they felt extremely welcome here. And they're not the only ones: The hotel's Pets Are Welcome (P.A.W.) program makes sure that even the four-legged members of your party are well cared for. Because W Hotels are part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

Since opening in 2010, along with its adjacent Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater, Austin’s W Hotel has fast become the see-and-be-seen spot. The Second Street property, encompassing a city block, is the first mixed-use occupancy building of its type in the world to be LEED certified.



This W has all the sleek special features you'd expect of the popular brand. Rooms are spacious, clean, and cool, with mod decor. But what makes this W better than most is its location along Second Street, aka Willie Nelson Boulevard, where Austin's hottest bars can be found.

Frommer's Exceptional

Condé Nast Traveler


The hospitality is authentically Texan, with staff oozing attentiveness.



Surrounded by downtown Austin’s vibrant music scene, the W Austin draws on the neighborhood’s rock-and-roll roots for its hip bar scene, glam roof-deck pool, and colorful, mid-century–inspired decor.
