I knew better as I read the reviews of other SPG Platinum members that warned about the lack of SPG recognition, touristy area, loud nightclub and weirdly modern dysfunctional rooms. Everything that they warned against happened to me...no recognition, noisy nightclub, room on second floor off the elevator bank close to nightclub, dark corridors and impossible to figure out lighting...

I went with my partner of 35 years and two friends. We are all in our late 40's and I would not describe us as clubbers or party animals but (I think) we appreciate contemporary style and a place that has some life. W hotels use the word Wow for their brand and I can confirm this is a Wow.... More

We had the most remarkable experience at this hotel. After realizing we had left behind a piece of luggage containing our passports at the previous hotel, the gentleman assisting us at guest check-in proceeded to call around to locate the bag and have it sent to us at the W. He personally took it upon himself to handle the situation... More

This Hotel is vey quirky, from the mood lighting to very large wet room bathrooms. We were on the fourth floor and never heard any noise as in other reviews. If you like trendy, you will love here. The king size bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning was very effective. This is an ideal location for theatre, eating... More

A friend an I came here to catch up and enjoy a classic English institution - Afternoon Tea. The hotel in right in the middle of the bustling West End, sandwiched between Leicester Square and Chinatown , but inside is an oasis of calm and sophistication. The setting is very contemporary and comfortable and we spend almost 2 hours chatting... More

This hotel is everything you would expect from the W brand and more. Location. Location. Location! WOW! We arrived earlier than the normal check in time and they were able to give us one of our two rooms. Both of which were upgraded by a gentleman at the welcome desk. He was beyond helpful throughout our stay. I had ordered... More

If you want to stay right in the middle of ground zero for tourists, this is ok but not for me. Hotel is nice but trendy in a way that feels outdated even a couple years after it opened. Staff was nice and helpful. For one night while passing through, it was great. For a long stay in london for... More

For context, I write as an SPG-Platinum . . . and this was a miserable experience. I used "suite upgrade" nights for my stay, and was given a great space . . . that turned out to be directly over the lobby-nightclub. I returned from a long day of travel getting to London and dinner at 1200 am to the... More

You will like this hotel if you are looking for a super new, ultra modern hotel, very very different from the typical one. Just to give you an idea: the lobby has a disco ball on the roof, the corridors outside the room are quite dark, the number of the room written in a "glittery" style on the room door's.... More

This is the most modern hotel I have ever been in. Technology throughout the room, shower, toilet, sink and room decoration. Location is the heart of the theater district, yet the price was fair. You can walk to all theaters comfortably. It is surrounded by all sorts of good restaurants. Many different tours are accessible nearby. It is colocated with... More
