Since opening in 2010, along with its adjacent Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater, Austin’s W Hotel has fast become the see-and-be-seen spot. The Second Street property, encompassing a city block, is the first mixed-use occupancy building of its type in the world to be LEED certified. Rooms are contemporary, yet warm and inviting. The lobby features a variety of hip hang-out spots, from the Records Room to Trace, the in-house restaurant featuring a locally-sourced, seasonal menu. The “WET deck” outdoor pool swells with beautiful people on weekends and the AWAY Spa provides a relaxing oasis in the heart of the city. A popular weekend brunch features live music and D.J. sets.
