W was successful in bringing its brand all the way to Phoenix. Nothing to envy to the South Beach parties. Granted, we got there on the day the Sound Wave festival was featuring Tiesto... The hotel pool deck easily competed with the nearby festivities.
Back to the rooms. All are great and full of the W ingenious amenities. If you can afford it, upgrade to a studio suite as this will double your room size. The bathrooms are fun with tainted glass shower cabins.
Food is a hit with Sushi Roku where you are encouraged to try Chef Miles daily suggestions. Additional to the Pool Deck, the lobby bar has a live band on Saturdays.
So does this mean the hotel is not for corporate use ? Just stay away from the weekends and you can have a quiet but dynamic environment for your meeting, One of the conference rooms is at the pool level (Close the curtains to focus)
Service is trendy. Beautiful people with ear pieces everywhere. But do not be fooled, When it gets to serving you in the Food and Beverage outlet, your waiter will be serious and exceptionnaly precise in his recommendation. Ours took all the needed time to explain the menu and service was very fast, despite the restaurant being full.
Access is very easy from the airport, under 30 mnsMore
