W Hotel & Condos: Boston vs Austin

Boston is not the only city that the W Hotel & Condo Development calls home.  While the Boston W Condos brought new flair to the Boston skyline with a 28-story glass and steel structure, those in Austin, Texas saw a similar phenomenon.  So which hotel and condo development is better?

Similar to the Boston W offering an upscale new restaurant called Market, the Austin W boasts a similar swanky eatery called Trace.

Both hotel and condo developments sport a modern look and feel with loads of glass, however, the Austin W Residences boast individual outdoor living space in some units whereas Boston does not.  You be the judge, is it the Boston W Residences or Austin W Residences that catches your eye?

W Hotel Condo Window Safety Issues

In mid-June of this year, several people were treated for cuts and scrapes after two glass window panes fell from the Austin W Hotel and Condos.  Austin Police stated that two window panes fell from a 24th story window onto the pool deck of the complex.

Not long before the Austin debacle, the Atlanta W Hotel experienced tragedy when two friends crashed through a seventh-story window, one falling to their death.  .
