The location is very good and worth the money spent. The rooms are small but very clean and you just have to sleep there..., so no needs much more: London is so exciting, walk out and enjoy! If you want to relax, try the bar,not bad.

Long time SPG Member and one time head cheerleader for this Particular W Hotel property. Reviewed previously by me. Have stayed here multiple times, but will be difficult to get us back. Started at check in, suites available for a price, no upgrade, that's ok I understand. At check in I'm told how to get on the internet, that the... More

I love W Hotel, all around the world, and London one is a very good one. Location is very conveninet, few steps from Piccadilly Circus. Standard rooms are small, but cozy and nice, but not well equipped in terms of amenities. A good choice in London!

Just had a great weekend in London, we love to stay at the W. The location is convenient, right in the heart of Leicester Square. The bar is great and changes atmosphere through the day, until very late in the evening/morning :) .......and they serve great light snacks, lunches and afternoon tea too. The Spice Market serves a beautiful breakfast,... More

As a frequent biz traveler, and a loyal SPG platinum member, one expects good service. W Leicester Square exceeded my expectations. From a staff who recognized me as a patron (it's also a super hip spot), to the exceptional treatment, I feel compelled to give a resoundingly positive review. The people, and building are top notch. They know how to... More

Recently stayed for 2 weekend nights. The whole experience from checkin to check out was great. They have good security at the doors. It is on the square so there is the potential for having the lounge and bar overwhelmed with visitors. That would leave no room for guests to enjoy the hotel they are paying for. So with that...

Needed an emergency 5* hotel close to Leicester Square so went with lastminute.com's secret rooms operation. Although I got a good price with them I was shafted with credit card fees and their refusal to issue a VAT invoice meaning I've paid way over the odds. Lesson learnt. That being said, I was happy to find out the hotel was... More

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
