Completed in a joint-venture with Hunt Construction Group, the groundbreaking on this 34-story JW Marriott Conference Center Hotel in downtown Austin, Texas took place in October of 2012.
Even before its official February 13, 2015 grand opening, the JW Marriott Austin (the city’s largest hotel and the largest JW Marriott in North America) had more than 520,000 room nights reserved through the year 2021. To accommodate the demand, the 1.2 million-sq.-ft. luxury hotel was completed ahead of schedule for an early opening.
The JW Marriott is targeting LEED Silver certification and has more than 112,000 sq. ft. of event space, 42 meeting rooms and more than 1,000 guest rooms. The hotel sits on top of a three-level, 471-space parking garage.
