Hotel guests can get a taste of the "Big Easy" or relish in the "Live Musical Capital of the World" with exclusive offerings highlighting each city's local charm

October 29 , 2013 (New Orleans, LA) -  Over 500 miles apart, Austin and New Orleans share a love for great music, exceptional cuisine and undeniable know-how when it comes to entertaining its out-of-town guests. As Southwest Airlines prepares to board its first non-stop flights between Austin and New Orleans on November 3rd, W Austin and W Hotels of New Orleans are excited to introduce a special hotel stay package: From Bourbon Street to Sixth Street.

Residents in both Austin and New Orleans have long ‘hyped' the other city's happenings, but with a holiday jaunt easier than ever to take, the hotels are eager to welcome those from the "Birthplace of Jazz" to the "Live Music Capital of the World" and vice versa. In addition to the style and sophistication that guests have come to know from W, those booking the special package will get to hear and taste ‘local' without ever leaving their rooms. The From Bourbon to Sixth Street Package includes:

 

At W Austin:

  • 2-night stay in a Wonderful room
  • 2 Lone Star beers ("The official beer of Texas")
  • An order of the acclaimed drunken doughnuts (recently named "best hotel breakfast in the US" by The Daily Meal)
