Myself and some friends usually love going to the W for drinks. However, their head security guard might have mistaken himself as God. We were laughed at and ridiculed by this member of the W Staff. As a long time customer of the location and the hotel chain, I'm saddened this type of person even receives employment! Disgusting! The hosts... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The location is great...it's the time square of London. We traveled with our teens and can't ask for a better location. Theaters, shopping, restaurants are within walking dist. We walked to many places including the London eye...the streets are spotless, fun and safe to walk around.... More

My wife and I just returned from a week in Europe. Our last stop was 23 hours in London. We got tickets for Les Miserables at the Queen's Theatre, which is 1 block from the W. I am an SPG Gold, so I try to stay at SPG properties when I can. The W was right in the middle of... More

If you like, cool, trendy, sophisticated, edgy, quirky, fun and a calm retreat from the madding crowd then stay here! Last time I stayed in London I stayed at the Le Meridian (part of the same SPG Hotel group) just down the road and that was more to my taste! Nothing wrong with this hotel - in fact the staff...

If you like being in the middle of a city that never sleeps than the W is for you. However if you value your sleep, find another hotel. Though the beds are great, there is no way to escape the street noise even if on higher floor.

I had a great experience at the W in Leicester Square. First, it is an excellent location for theatre and access to several Tube Stations (Leiecester Square and Picadilly Circus). Second, the rooms are beautifully designed: an open space with an island that has a counter to work or eat; and your sink. The bathroom and shower are tucked behind... More

Great hotel with modern and cool interior and excellent service! The room was utterly amazing with sexy interior and comfy beds. A tip is to order a vinyl player to the room (it's free) and that if you stay at the hotel you get free access to the night club (which was worth checking out at least!). Also the complimentary...

Stunning modern room loved it. Bed was so comfy. Perfect location. Only downside was the grumpy receptionist on arrival. "Photo id and I will need your credit card to authorise £75 for incidentals". No please or thank you nor an explanation as to why she needed to "pre authorise" my card for a substantial amount except that it's " Company... More

a truly cool place at the edge of Chinatown, Leicester Square and Picadilly Circus - cool room, although on the small side, typical W style with some of the best beds you can find in hotels - staff is service orientated and nice , the bar an "in-place" - make sure you get a room higher up as this place...
