The W Austin Hotel & Residences doesn’t want you to forget that you’re still in Austin. Despite the concrete exterior of the building and the metropolitan sleekness that it might exude, it’s very clear that The W is deeply grounded in the spirit and holistic vibe of Austin.
“This is it,” account executive Reid Schwartz said. “Welcome to The W Austin.”
From the moment you enter the doors to the hotel, you can’t help but feel waves of coziness as the mesmerizing interior engulfs you. It’s a celebration of scale, form, natural materials and elegance–– which is all experienced in one sweeping motion. Even the air seems calming. Modern and a bit Zen-like, the hotel reflects the casual comfort and laid-back style that is an Austin trademark.
Schwartz said the W Austin is completely adorned in genuine glamor. Among the favorite spaces in the hotel is the records room, which houses a large inventory of material from Austin recording artists.
The room is decorated with a massive fireplace and entry points, artwork and furnishings, mirrors, and rich dark walls and ceiling. Overall, it’s the details that will melt away the stresses of the outside world — the color of the walls and the various textures — they add a quiet richness to the comprehensive style and calming experience of the W.
Let’s not forget the AWAY spa either, which provides in-the-know locals and visitors with an escape within an escape. Treatments are amazing, and there are many choices that will pamper you and soothe the soul. You’ll feel totally relaxed and refreshed after your spa experience.
Overall The W Austin is truly an inspiring, relaxing and fresh addition to the Austin experience. And you’ll never think for a second you’ve left Austin; the laid-back vibe is an integral part of the hotel’s ambience and a treat for the mind, body and soul.
