We stayed at the W Hotel for a 2 night weekend stay. It was booked for an event so we had no choice where we were staying. I had read the reviews on TripAdvisor and was a little concerned .
I have to speak as I find. The location is absolutely amazing, couldn't have been better. It really is a stunning building too.
Check in took a life time- and we were the only ones checking in. The chap checking us in was polite but trying too hard to interract with us rather than get on with checking us in. We had driven 4 hours and really just wanted to get to our room and chill.
The room we had was small- which was the most repeated gripe I read about. I really don't like the idea of having the basin in the bedroom area. My first impression is that the hotel had been constructed of lots and lots of portacabins sitting on top of each other. It was like staying in a shoe box. I refer my basin to be in my bathroom. I really didn't like the idea of the separate shower and toilet. The bath towels are also on the basin island so when you come out of the shower ( ours had a towel by the door to stop water flooding the bedroom area too- clearly a design fault somewhere as lots of reviews state this) you walk dripping to reach the towels. The shower and toilets were just screened off by glass partitions so unless you are staying there with someone you know intimately, going to the toilet could be a noisy embarrassing experience. Our room was on the second floor and at night when we went to bed it was incredibly noisy. The windows were closed and we could still hear all the noises from the street below.
The decor of the main lobby/ bar area is amazing fabulous huge sofas and fires, very trendy. The atmosphere in the bar was amazing it was constantly busy and a DJ played both evenings. It was great.
The Doormen were courteous, friendly and polite. I couldn't believe that at night people queued up outside to go onto the bar. Wow.
Summing up I would say it's a great location I would stay again but would investigate better rooms and definitely insist on going on a much higher floor.
