The W Austin hotel is closing indefinitely after glass fell from the balcony panels of the Austin, Texas, building for a second day in a row and the third time in recent weeks, the hotel’s parent company announced Tuesday. The hotel will be closed "until further notice" as the glass panels are replaced, the hotel’s parent company said in a statement Tuesday. Guests of the hotel are being relocated to other hotels. "We are replacing every piece of balcony glass on the building," Stratus Properties CEO Beau Armstrong said in the statement.
