Why choose Austin when it comes to meetings? The answer is simple. Austin, Texas is an iconic city that planners and attendees can trust to execute a great program. With its state-of-the-art infrastructure, innovative meeting and event space options, and world-class hotels – Austin has its pulse on the latest industry trends.
One of the best options to host a successful event, located in the heart of downtown, is the JW Marriott Austin. This hotel is within walking distance of over 200 shops, restaurants, and a lively nightlife scene. And just steps away from the Sixth Street Entertainment District, South by Southwest Festival, Austin City Limits Music Festival and the University of Texas. Nestled conveniently between the Texas State Capitol building and the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail, the JW Marriott Austin is at the heart of Austin’s top attractions. Voted #1 hotel in Texas by Condé Nast readers in 2019, the JW Marriott Austin offers each guest luxury comforts and well-appointed amenities. It’s considered an urban resort, that features an on-site spa, seven bars, three restaurants, onsite FedEx business center, full spa, and the largest guest rooms in the city with floor-to-ceiling windows.
Not to mention some of the best, most versatile meeting space any planner only dreams to have! Ranked as Cvent’s #2 Top Meetings Hotel for 2019, JW Marriott Austin features over 115,000 square feet of flexible space. The largest JW Marriott of its kind in the Americas! Home to 42 individual meeting rooms, and a premier location on Congress Avenue, the hotel has truly set a new standard for events within the city. Prime space includes their large 30,000 square foot Grand Ballroom, a 23,000 square foot Lone Star Ballroom, and another 23,000 square foot Griffin Exhibit Hall. In addition to that, easy access to the Austin Convention Center and 370,000 square feet of event space is just steps away (just in case you need a little extra space ?).
One must also recognize the hotel’s amazing food and beverage options as well. The JW Austin offers a wide array of cuisine -from authentic Italian dining in a casual setting at OP Italian to locally grown regional specialties at Corner restaurant, so you can sample the best of Texas. Need your cup of joe in the morning? Starbucks is also onsite for your caffeine fix. Attendees can grab a bite at the Burger Bar (a food truck without wheels) in between meetings or after group cocktails. Or, host a final night reception at Edge Rooftop + Bar, their lounge on the rooftop – with cocktails and picturesque views of the Texas State Capitol and Lady Bird Lake.
With all this and more, it’s no wonder they’ve won a ton of accolades! Since they open their meeting room doors back in 2015, the hotel has added to its repertoire Conde Nast Reader’s Choice Awards, Smart Meetings Choice Award, Forbes Top 9 New Business Hotels in the World, Meeting’s & Convention Golf Key Awards for Greenest Hotel, Best Hotel/Resort, and Best Decor/Design Southwest Region, and US News & World Report Best Hotels in Texas.
