The 251-room W Austin Hotel in Texas is closed temporarily while about 1,000 glass panels are being replaced. Six of the panels, which adorn the balconies on the hotel's exterior, have fallen in the past two weeks. The property, which opened last December and offers 10,500 square feet of meeting space, will reopen on July 10, as long as the work is done.
