W Hotel Austin
The fourth-floor pool is just one of the amenities that draws guests to this hip, downtown hotel. But non-guests can experience it, too: Day passes are available seasonally, and clients of the W's Away Spa also get access. The modern hotel features 251 rooms, each with picture-perfect views of the skyline. Escape your room's Sonoro sound system for company in the Living Room bar downstairs, where every weekend a DJ sets up in the Records Room and takes use of the space's 8,000 vinyl records.
