The visit to Bangkok was business but I wish it was for leisure! The W is truly funky - not the conventional business hotels I was used to. Neon lights at the elevators, piped-in pop music couldn't beat the surprise I got when I saw a humongous pair of boxing glove cushions which had the words "Lights" and "Out" on them placed on the bed in my room. My FaceTime with my 12-year old son to show him how fun the place was solicited this comment: "Gee mom, if you deck someone on the head with them, it will truly be lights out!"
Centrally located - in fact, the BTS station was right next door, made this convenient but facilities were a little lacking for business. The buffet breakfast was adequate and the service was pretty good but average by Thai standards. Would I go back? Probably with the family - because the hotel is meant to be fun. And I took a shot of the hotel pool from an office window at the higher floors of Sathorn Square - it looked like a whale beached on top of a building! Extremely hip!
