I have not enjoyed positive experiences in some of the older style W Hotels, including the worst in New York and Istanbul, whereas the stays far more enjoyable at newer establishments such as Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore and Barcelona.
I therefore kept my expectations low for this hotel and was very pleasantly surprised over a three night stay.
The staff are almost without exception friendly and enthusiastic, the location the best of the large chains and the new restaurant superb (except at breakfast where the service seems very slow and the menu options limited and served over chic on ridiculous individual clumsy side plates).
As would be anticipated the rooms are not large, showers small the swimming pool tiny and the absence of any designated smoking area tempts breaching the smoke free complex rule.
Overall however the hotel will not disappoint and surely impress with its ideal location and exceptional evening dining experience.
