The Experience

W Austin

Welcome to W Austin, a new luxury hotel in downtown Austin – located in the Second Street District and next door to the famed Austin City Limits music venue, in the center of the Live Music Capital of the World.  Austin’s Second Street District features six-blocks of shopping, dining and entertainment venues and is located north of Town Lake, along the south edge of downtown Austin, TX. Hotel guests of the new W Austin Hotel will love the fact that they are located in the heart of this vibrant and pedestrian-friendly area, surrounded by local shops, restaurants, the Austin Convention Center, City Hall and many things to do while visiting Austin.

Indulge in rock star comforts of our 251 rooms—perfectly positioned windows with postcard views of Lady Bird Lake or the downtown skyline, and our signature amenities. For an encore, our Whatever/Whenever service makes all wishes come true.  Check out images from local photographer Scott Newton’s collection of Austin City Limits shots from the last 35 years, every room featuring its own unique portrait of music in play. With in-room recycling and Bricor Vac.Flow Venturi showers producing powerful pressure at low flow rates, it’s easy to keep Austin weird and green—the hotel is passionately committed to upholding the strictest ecologically friendly and sustainable practices possible.  When you check in, escape to state-of-the-art entertainment where the unique energy and cutting edge culture of Austin surges through a whirlwind swirl of high-energy interiors, vivid design, cutting-edge technology and uniquely modern amenities.

Conscious cuisine thoughtfully re-defined as locavorous gastronomy, bursting with a cornucopia of Central Texas flavors. At Trace, local, sustainable produce infused with international flair is what’s for dinner.  Enter the Living Room, where we’ve knocked down the walls of traditional lobby design to create a place where you can open your mind and feel alive while indulging in farm-to-cocktail caucusing.  Laze on deck chairs by the pool soaked in sun rays, cocktail in hand and listen to the sounds of summer in the air. The WET Bar is where it’s at.

Designed with you in mind, the treatment rooms at AWAY Spa at W Austin allow flexibility to fit your schedule. Let us show you that true relaxation is more than skin deep. Whether you’re slinking from the city or cooling your heels from a summer festival, let us whisk you AWAY from it all.  With an extravagant spread of indoor treatment areas for total privacy and complete renewal, succumb to naturalhealing therapies sensationally performed by superstar therapists. Seven charcoal-accented treatment rooms, where you’ll enjoy essential oils, massage gels, body scrubs and wraps designed specially for our spa, and you, and a luxe nail lounge with mani-pedi stations and a 52″ TV. Each treatment room and mani-pedi station has its own iPod docking station so you can relax to your own personal mix, or let us whip you up a playlist.

In our 3,600-square-feet, state-of-the-art, fully-equipped SWEAT Fitness Center on the fourth floor, champs like you were born to run. Stretch high and reach for the sky where energizing is easy, whether you prefer yoga, lifting, cycling or just jogging.
