W Hotel, Hong Kong


W Hotels Worldwide beckon you “to escape to where iconic design and contemporary luxury set the stage for exclusive and extraordinary experiences… Each hotel and resort is uniquely inspired by its destination, mixing cutting-edge design with local influences and creating a place to play or work by day or to mix and mingle in high-energy spaces by night. So, while every hotel is unmistakably a W hotel, each has its own personality.”

Welcome to W Hotel, Hong Kong. This is a city with Lego-block sky scrapers, labyrinth-like alleys, buzzing busy-bodies rushing from here to there and is the epitome of the Urban Jungle. It is this urban jungle, with mazes of pathways, and magical nooks and crannies that W Hotel symbolizes.

The guest rooms are truly wonderful – all bathed in natural light and two thirds of them have harbour views. The décor does not depart from the nature motif that is woven throughout: wood grain interpretations of dream catchers are etched into the wall panels and provide a modern and very graphic feel.

Every aspect of this hotel seeks to balance style and substance. At W Hotel Hong Kong, the emphasis is on combining “comfort, attentive service and exceptional ammenities.”

The mystical journey starts from the hotel entrance on the 1st floor and continues in Kitchen where a Mad Hatter’s tea party awaits. The way stacks of bowls and dishes are constructed is based on the idea of ascent and the urban forest in a fun way.

Cats are also seen to be playing in the central tree and begging to have their picture taken by visiting guests. This is a community destination, because the intention of having oversized dining table was to create the first truly communal table in Hong Kong, where guests sit among the food and shouting chefs, encouraging full interaction.

W Hotel Hong Kong welcomes guests to experience its unique ambiance, vibrant lounges, modern guestrooms and innovative cuisine. This is more than just a hotel experience, it is a luxury lifestyle destination.
