The newest addition to the Austin skyline, Westin Austin Downtown, is scheduled to open July 16. Before its complete, CultureMap has a sneak peek at the space — including its amazing views of downtown.

Located at the corner of San Jacinto Boulevard and Fifth Street, the Westin nabs prime real estate near the Austin Convention Center and Sixth Street.

The 20-story tower aims to attract locals and out-of-towners alike with its amenities. The Westin features 366 guestrooms and suites, a 24-hour workout area, and the highest hotel rooftop pool (and bar) in Austin. The hotel boasts 16 meeting rooms and more than 14,500 square feet of event space, including a 4,500 square-foot ballroom.

Opening in tandem with the hotel is Stella San Jac, a new "Austin-American" restaurant located on the ground floor of the Westin. The hotel and restaurant officially open July 16. The Westin is currently accepting reservations beginning July 30.
