Map & Directions


With music flowing around every corner, a spirit of independence across every block, an eclectic vibrance emanating from every direction, and a natural love for the outdoors in the air, to explore Austin is to immerse yourself in the city, with your feet and ears close to the ground.

With a vibrant, bustling downtown with something to see at every corner, intersection and along each sidewalk, a stroll through the 2ND Street, Warehouse and 6th Street Entertainment Districts is the way to roll, just steps from W Austin. If you like walking this way or that, ramble on along the Lady Bird Hike and Bike Trail—the intersection of urban cool and earthly goodness where the casual, laid-back Austin vibe really comes to life, whether you're on two legs or two wheels. The city's year-long comfortable climate means you'll want to ride your bicycle all the time, the most efficient and scenic way to cover all of Austin inside and out with your very own designated lane across most main streets. Austin roads can be challenging with highways and roads merging and changing names, with many one-way downtown streets, so if you must drive, try to make sure someone else is behind the wheel (buses) or handlebars (pedicabs). Otherwise, consult maps in advance and familiarize yourself with the routes you need to take, so you can better estimate driving times and distance.

We recommend that all guests fly into Austin Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and travel to the hotel by private car service, taxi or airport shuttle. AUS is approximately 8 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, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
