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)
  • "Austin Music Volume 12" CD, including tracks from buzzed about local ATX musicians such as Este Vato, Whiskey Shivers, Eastern Sea and more

 

At W New Orleans and W New Orleans - French Quarter:

  • 2-night stay in a Wonderful room
  • 2 seasonal brews from Abita (award-winning brewery located just outside of New Orleans)
  • An order of beignets (the Louisiana State Doughnut)
  • Trombone Shorty autographed CD


To mark the occasion with more excitement, W Austin and W Hotels of New Orleans are hosting a sweepstakes with Spirit Magazine, the official magazine of Southwest Airlines, to give away one hotel stay package to W Austin and W New Orleans - French Quarter.  Spirit Magazine will select a winner for each package that will include roundtrip airline tickets for two people.  Anyone 21 years and older can enter the sweepstakes from December 1 to December 31 at http://www.spiritmag.com/sweepstakes/

The hotel's $9 million renovation, completed in 2012, brings to life the soul and charm of New Orleans through vibrant designs of jazz and tarot.  Sitting just steps from the French Quarter but in a quieter location for a peaceful night's rest, W New Orleans is close to Harrah's Casino, the Warehouse District shopping, festivals, live music and some of the top restaurants and bars.
