    A rooftop apiary provides honey for the sleek farm-to-table restaurant, TRACE, downstairs, which also has its own forager. Don’t miss brunch on the patio on Sundays, complete with live jazz. Read more

    More hotels should have this multi mobile device charging station. Although one of the drawbacks is that you'll need to keep up with new connectors like the new one for iPhone 5 & iPad 4 and beyond.

    comfortable beds, love the rooms and can walk to everything DT very easily. The staff was awesome too. Check out 2nd Street Kitchen, Moonshine or Amy's ice cream for those who have never been to ATX.

    Right across the street from Lady Bird Lake Trail. Terrific run/walk. Ask for a map at the front desk. Many distance options. Comparable to running at the Charles in Boston/Cambridge without the wind.

    I wanted some fruit. They said choose anything. I felt like a king. And THEN they gave me the best presentation ever! (The mmmpanadas were delish too!)

    Possibly the best hotel experience ever. They were so wonderful to our dogs and the staff was so friendly. I don't give complements easily but they really went above and beyond.

    Two words: Drunken Doughnuts. These tasty pastries are served with tequila chile fudge sauce, bourbon dulce de leche and vodka whipped cream. Get them at the on-site restaurant TRACE. Read more

    Being the location of the 2011 Social Business Summit, we can say that the conference services and food & beverage are top notch. Check out the 2nd story deck when the weather is mild.

    One of Austin’s newest hotels is located on the trendy 2nd Street District. The W is also the home to the “Austin City Limits” studio, which hosts concerts as well as the TV show tapings year-round.

    W offers great rooms and one of the best audio-video systems I've seen in a long time. Conference rooms have powerful Bose speakers. Enjoyable place to deliver presentations.

    Complimentary show shine and they'll bring a coffee maker to your room if you ask. Roof deck by pool is amazing for lunch or just relaxing.

    Coffee by 10am. Record room is cool! Get workout in and if warm, pool is good. Trace for lunch, good but not cheap. I like this W...

    One of the cooler Ws I've seen. Trace has great burgers for you're looking for a quick bite, need an old fashioned, and can find the entrance...

    One of the best and romantic bars in Austin. It goes on forever, many nooks and hidden areas to share a quiet moment with your mate.

    Went there during the summer I enjoyed the saline pool over the standard chloride pools in most hotels. and the refreshing cucumber and lime water poolside. Very bright place, pricey$$$$$.

    Try the Shrimp and Grits - #Nom! Shrimp is perfectly cooked. Grits are #creamy & a bit #salty. Great #balance. + gluten-free!

    Try the Gazpacho Three Ways - So hungry nearly forgot to take a pic - 1 is #creamy, 1's #spicy, 1's #herbaceous. Can you tell which is which?

    Be sure to check the Austin City Limits schedule when you book here. Music lovers will appreciate that it is attached to the hotel.

    Pet friendly! Pet welcome kit includes toys, treats, dog bed, turn-down service and more. However, guests with pets will have to cough up an additional $25 per night and a $100 "cleaning fee." Read more

    Try the Market (Egg White) Omelette with Arugula Salad - Nice, light balance of #veggies & local goat #cheese.

    The bar at the lobby is huge. A lot of rooms and each one with a bar. The bathrooms are mixed. Nice place.

    Hotel gym is LEGIT. They have a full squat rack. If you're a gymrat and hoteler, you know how rare that is.

    Choose your adventure at this multi-venue establishment. The casual Living Room Bar, the swanky "hidden" bar, or the modern elegance Trace Restaurant bar provide plenty of options.

    Great hotel but seems a little bit behind its other brothers and sister in all public spaces. Or has it changed already?

    The W needs to update it's video service. The digital feeds for about 5 stations (including ESPN and Fox) don't work. BTW: some of us now bring our own video. Open up the TV ports please!

    3X the points if you choose to go from automatic room maintenance to "green" and have cleaning by request only.

    Parking: Don't be a tool, park one block away for $5 a night/day starting fri-sun. W is $29 a night and that valet shit is for lazy fat bastards ( or those on their way).

    Rad, but no financing of beverages. You pay San Francisco prices. Make sure you have your spending money ready. If you see me, say "hi." I just might buy you a drink.

    Sit in the record room and sip a drink on one of the nights DJ Mike Swing is spinning!
