Whimsically sophisticated and wonderfully appointed hot spot

A playfully sophisticated demeanor dominates the W. Saturated purples and reds, funky shapes and patterns and five-star amenities all converge in this Kowloon gem. Feel sleek no matter where you choose to spend your time at this hotel. Luxurious guest rooms outfitted with feather beds and high-tech amenities offer spectacular city views. A chic dining room and lounge, rooftop pool nestled in city lights and swank spa offer abundant opportunity for style and sophistication. Be prepared, it is likely you won't want to leave.

Highlights
  • Spectacular design with service to match
  • Whatever/Whenever (as long as it's legal) service
  • Heated rooftop pool with gorgeous mural and city views
Rooms
With names like Wonderful, Spectacular and Fabulous, these glam rooms please design-savvy guests and satisfy the most jaded traveling executive. Bold, rich colors and textural details match the dynamic backdrop of city views from floor-to-ceiling windows. For rest, feather beds and a pillow menu ensure heavenly sleep. For leisure, surround sound, on-demand media and iPod docking stations let guests create their own audio cocoon. And for work, a high-tech desk area and in-room Wi-Fi facilitates productivity in privacy. Bathrooms feature custom Bliss toiletries, rain shower and LCD TV for a movie while you soak. Suites are outfitted with Bang & Olufsen entertainment centers and enormous bay windows.
Features

Above all else, the W delivers truly fabulous service. Other perks include complimentary Wi-Fi in the lobby, free iPod rental in the fitness center and the self-explanatory Whatever/Whenever policy (fees definitely apply). The Kitchen and WooBar, though the names are quotidian, are sleek and chic dining and lounge venues. Bliss Spa offers everything from pedicures to massage. An outdoor heated pool is backed by an enormous mural on one end and flanked by open-air Hong Kong lights. With expansive views of harbor and city, the fitness center not only feels roomy but actually is. For style and substance, the W delivers with a bang.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the train from the airport directly to Kowloon station. The W Hotel is just up the stairs. When you depart, check your bags and pick up your boarding pass at Kowloon station instead of the airport.

Perfect room, best staff ever

Our stay at W Hong Kong was amazing! This hotel was clean, beautiful, a joy to stay in and has the best staff of any hotel we've stayed at. We won't stay anyplace else in Hong Kong from now on, and have decided to stay in W Hotels from now on whenever possible.

fantastic

Great hotel. Location was a little out of the way, but I loved the hotel, it was worth the taxis everywhere. The W is on an isolated side of kowloon, you cannot just walk out and be in a bustling city, instead there is a highway. However, the hotel is very modern, sleek, simple and luxurious - you may never want to leave! The shuttle to TST was always fully booked when we needed it, so we never took advantage of that. HK island is only one stop away by metro, but to get to TST you need a cab (there is no direct line). The hotel is very convenient for the airport express and is connected to elements mall. There is plenty of places to eat in the mall and lots of high end shopping.

Aqua for drinks in TST. The view is amazing and the drinks are cheap for what are getting. The drinks are made with FRESH fruit and the view is beautiful.

Very ModernHotel

The location is what I like the best about the hotel, The airport express train took us only door steps away from the hotel. The hotel is pretty new and modern. It also connected with a mall that has everything we need.

Fantastic Hotel

Very convenient hotel, just above the Airport Express Kowloon Station. Superb hotel for a weekend of leisure in a trendy city. It is half leisure, half business, which fits well with this city. Brunch breakfast is a feast with dedicated staff, amusing dishes and good quality ingredients. Finally the Bliss toiletries in the room and health club are a real pleasure for the senses.

hip in hong kong

Fun hotel with friendly staff. Walking to the airport express is a synch. The views from the 72 floor pools are a great way to experience the skyline of HK and the surround sound was a nice touch.

Super trendy

Very modern and nice hotel. Great number of service facilities around the hotel and very easy commute to the airport. However, access to the subway (MTR) system is the only negative thing about this hotel.
