W Austin, Texas – Hotel Review
While I had never been to Austin prior to this visit, in my mind, I envisioned an endless music scene and untold types of food served from food trucks.
Austin calls itself the live music capital of the world, but it’s equally well known for its festivals and food as for music. The relatively new W Austin perfectly matches the city’s vibe and is ideally located downtown near some great clubs and just blocks away from Sixth Street, the city’s historic entertainment district.
My ride in from the airport was quick and I spotted some really interesting food trucks on the way, as if they were there just to tempt me.
Upon pulling up to the sleek, glass-clad building, I was warmly welcomed by a bellman who offered to assist with my luggage. Check-in formalities were brief and I was soon in my room.
My Wonderful room (other room categories include Cozy, Spectacular, and Fabulous) was generously sized and had splendid city views.
The first thing I noticed was the white lacquer partition that separated the sleeping area from the rest of the room including the entryway and bathroom. Indeed the room had a lot of white lacquer and a long wooden L-shaped table that served both as a desk and a stand for the 40” LCD TV.
