Austin Hotel Closed After Another Falling Glass Accident

Austin's W Hotel closed after glass fell from balcony panels of the building the second straight day and the third time in the past few weeks, reports say.

The hotel was closed as the glass panels were replaced, and guests of the hotel were being relocated to other hotels. The company that operates the W, " Stratus Properties, is planning on replacing every piece of balcony glass on the building, reports say.

Ironically, the glass fell from the balcony the same day a lawsuit was filed against the hotel on behalf of two people injured June 10th from falling glass, reports say. Evidently, the lawsuit alleges the hotel had been warned of the problem prior to the incident, but failed to correct the problem, reports say.
