"Not only will this hotel change the meeting and convention landscape in Austin, but it will also serve as a huge addition to the city’s hospitality and dining scene," said Scott Blalock, general manager of the JW Marriott Austin.
The hotel also features a fifth-floor pool and bar, two restaurants – an Italian and a burger bar – and its own Starbucks.
"The new JW Marriott Austin has already enabled us to make advances in both the size and quality of groups that we are now able to attract with the additional inventory and 1,012-room convention-style hotel," said Bob Lander, president and CEO of the Austin Convention & Visitors Bureau.
"While visitor attendance at marquee events and festivals definitely help our entire community, meetings and conventions travel remains the strongest economic backbone for our industry in terms of generating positive economic impact to the city," he added.
