My wife and I stayed overnight at the Hyatt Regency and were pleased by all its aspects. The staff was knowledgeable of the surrounding festivities and locales, and generally any place worth visiting in Downtown Austin. The room was perfectly agreeable, commodious and sanitary. I would recommend this hotel to any family and friends intent on wandering around the hotspots of Austin, while also insistent on returning to a pleasant overnight stay between daytime adventures.
This hotel is in the city center and is very close to 6th Street bars/restaurants. If you are in reasonably good health, you can walk to pretty much anything from this hotel. The bridge where the bats come out at night, is only about 3 blocks away. Capitol is probably 8-10 blocks as is the Bullock museum which is nearby. University of Texas Austin is a little further at maybe 2 miles (you may want to cab that if it's a hot day since the campus itself is a long walk). Long Center is a little way over the same bat bridge if you want to walk to a concert.
W Hotel itself was fantastic as they most often are. If you are fairly young or like that young/hip vibe, the W Hotel is the place for you. We stayed for 5 days & would often take a dip or lay out by the pool for a few hours after sightseeing all day. A liquor sponsor was there the weekend we were & provided free mixed cocktails which was an added bonus. All the different bar/lounge areas within the hotel have great service & atmosphere & play hip music. Hotel room was fairly large & modern. Word to the wise: if you are sharing your room with someone other than a spouse/lover, ask for a shower curtain. The whole bathroom is pretty much wide open and has clear glass shower door, so there is no privacy. We went the green route and volunteered to not have service while we were there (make beds, clean bathroom, etc) to get extra Starwood points. Added bonus: Starbucks attached to hotel, for those that need their morning fix.
lush landscaping. gentle music and a peaceful view in the breakfast room. breakfast included biscuits and gravy, sausage, eggs, hash browns, fruit, muffins, etc. friendly, professional staff. plenty of parking. well-enforced quiet hours. full kitchen. very comfortable. but the mattress was very firm. my daughter who loves a firm mattress slept like a baby. I prefer a soft mattress but I slept okay anyway. clean and quiet.

Its more than a beautiful place to stay... Nestled in the heart of Austin you will find the perfect atmosphere to combine …More
The king deluxe room has a great bathtub/shower setup if you're looking for a night of relaxation with your significant other at a pretty good price. My only gripe was that the a/c wasn't as cold as I'd like, even at a cold setting, but it was pretty minor. Highly recommended.
