There are several beautiful hotels in the Austin area, but nothing quite compares to the W Austin. The decor is new, edgy and modern, yet elegant. After our first visit to the W, we were sold. Not only was the hotel gorgeous, but the staff was unlike any other. They were extremely friendly, attentive and willing to work with us through everything! James, Stephani and Laura did an absolutely amazing job to ensure our wedding day was perfect! I would highly recommend the W Austin Hotel to anyone looking for a wedding venue in the Austin area!

I just had my dream wedding at the W in Austin. Every detail was perfect, the food (and there was A LOT) was delicious, the cakes were amazing, and our overall experience was beyond what I could have ever dreamed. The hotel and it's ballrooms are hip, sleek and young - perfect for an Austin wedding.
All of our guests are still raving about the gorgeous venue, the seamlessness of the night, and the wonderful time they had staying as guests at the W during our wedding weekend. Jen was attentive, detail-oriented, creative, and wonderful to work with. The entire staff was amazing from start to finish. I wish I could get married every weekend at the W - I'm so honored to be a W bride!

We were very underwhelmed by the quality of service provided to us by the W Hotel. We loved the location, look, and professional attention we received during the first few months after we signed our contract. However, several months later, our original coordinator was promoted, and the person to whom we were assigned was very unprofessional, mistake-prone and unresponsive. When we raised these issues with our new coordinator's superior, we received improved attention. However, our new coordinator's superior failed to check back in and the original problems resurfaced.

The last two weeks before the wedding were incredibly stressful, with many details still unresolved, including ones which we had previously discussed and thought addressed.

This being said, the people who took care of setting up the reception and ceremony space, preparing the food, and attending to our guests were excellent. Our guests who stayed at the hotel were equally impressed with the treatment they received.

The excellent service we had previously experienced while staying with the W was present everywhere but among the staff who helped us coordinate the wedding. We will continue to consider staying at the W Hotel but would strongly advise against hosting an event at the W Hotel in Austin.

The W Hotel made my dream wedding come true. From the food tasting prior to the wedding to the Sunday brunch the morning after, nothing was amiss. Jen was responsive and helpful, the ballroom was gorgeous to work with and attention to detail was amazing. I am so thankful for the W and all the guests were so impressed as well.
