Slated to open on February 13, 2015, the JW Marriott Austin has unveiled the names and concepts of the hotel’s three restaurants.
Osteria Pronto is a full-service regional Italian restaurant with a menu designed to offer a twist on classic Italian dishes with simple, distinctive flavors. Corner is a lively restaurant that will feature Texas-inspired cuisine using fresh local ingredients and will highlight uniquely crafted Tequila cocktails. The menu will feature a selection of grilled meat and fish, a variety of local craft beers on tap, as well as several Texas wines and spirits.
The third restaurant at the JW Marriott Austin, Burger Bar on Congress, is a walk-up food truck-style window on Congress Ave.
The JW Marriott Austin will be the city's largest hotel, the largest JW Marriott in North America and the second largest JW Marriott in the world. Austin is currently a top travel destination, with approximately 20 million people visiting the city every year.
The new JW Marriott Austin will have 1,012 guest rooms, and has already booked more than 512,000 room nights through 2021. Construction on the JW Marriott began in August 2012 and the hotel is designed to host large conventions and meetings, with more than 112,000 square feet of event space, 42 meeting rooms and will also achieve a LEED Silver certification and two-star Austin Energy Green Building rating.
