JW Marriott Austin for TravelCon 2018

I went to Austin, TX for a conference called TravelCon, which is a conference for (but not limited to) travel bloggers and social media influencers in the travel industry. If you want to meet genuine, and inspirational people- go to this conference!

It was held at the JW Marriott Austin and not only was the JW Marriott absolutely stunning, the staff was very attentive and helpful. While I was taking pictures in the lobby a staff member came over and told me some facts about the hotel, like:

  • The art behind the front desk represents cactus under a microscope
  • The pillars throughout the hotel are made of Texas limestone
  • The lobby fireplace represents bats flying from under the Congress bridge
  • The JW Marriott Austin is the largest JW Marriott in the Americas and second-largest in the world


Such cool facts and details that I would have never known if the staff member hadn’t been attentive to me taking pictures. I stayed at an Airbnb during the conference, but when I go back to Austin, I will definitely book a room at the JW Marriott. Fun fact- I started my career in hospitality at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes!

TravelCon itself was an amazing experience, but having it at the JW Marriott made it that much better. Can’t wait for TravelCon 2019!
