JW Marriott taking reservations, set to open in February

The JW Marriott Austin is now accepting guest room reservations. Jay Spurr, Director of Sales and Marketing, says “We finally got over a big hurdle and achieved a milestone of actually having the hotel now open for reservations. So we’re accepting reservations beginning in early March, for arrival in early March 2015.”

Guests can make reservations on the hotel’s website, JWMarriottAustin.com, or by calling Marriott’s reservation desk at 1-800-228-9290. More than 375,000 guest rooms have already been contracted for several large conventions and meetings, with the first groups arriving the day the hotel opens. Located at Congress and Second Street, Spurr says when completed the hotel will feature “…1,012 guest rooms and more than 112,000 square feet of meeting space”.

Upon completion, the 34-story hotel will be the largest hotel in Austin, the largest JW Marriott in the United States and the second-largest JW Marriott in the world.

 

The hotel will open earlier than previously announced, with the first guests checking in on Friday, Feb. 13, 2015. For a preview of the hotel’s recent progress, visit
