Map & Directions

Situated in the heart of Austin’s vibrant 2nd Street District, near popular draws like 6th Street and Rainey Street, W Austin Hotel has its finger firmly on the pulse of the downtown scene.

Whether you like listening to live music indoors or al fresco, consider yourself an outdoorsy type or urban nomad or prefer your cuisine on a white tablecloth or straight from a truck, this relatively small Texas town with big city chops has what you’re looking for in droves.

For starters, Austin isn’t the official Live Music Capital of the World® without good reason. While widely known as the host of the enormous South by Southwest (SXSW) and Austin City Limits Festivals, Austin features dazzling live music on just about every corner. This is where you can catch today’s big-name acts or stumble upon up-and-coming talents on their way to becoming tomorrow's brightest stars. This being Texas and all, there’s no shortage of country music singer-songwriters with either stars on their door or stars in their eyes, but you’ll also have plenty of chances to satisfy your jones for blues, rock, hip-hop, jazz and just about every other genre out there.

Austin’s year-round pleasant weather makes it a paradise for hikers, bikers, walkers and doers of all stripes. The city’s over 300 parks and vast network of urban trails, plus destinations like Lady Bird Lake and Barton Springs pool, means there are plenty of ways to work up a sweat on land or water.

With so much to see and do, visitors are bound to work up an appetite. You’ll have your pick of cool, cutting-edge, farm-to-table restaurants helmed by culinary stars. But don’t let all the battered food trucks you see fool you—some of Austin’s best food has its own wheels. If you want to know which restaurants are currently bringing their A game, or where to find the fieriest taco truck, just stop one of Austin’s famously friendly locals and ask.

When staying at W Austin, we recommend that you fly into Austin Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and travel to the hotel by private car service, taxi or airport shuttle. AUS is approximately eight miles from W Austin with an approximate travel time of 15 to 20 minutes, depending on traffic. There are also Amtrak and Greyhound stations for guests who prefer to stay grounded.

If you are traveling by car, see driving directions from the airport or any other location.
