W London Leicester Square5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel was upscale, but the design of the room was unusual and not guest friendly. The toilet and shower were in separate "closets" and the sink was located in a large island in the entrance to the room. Getting ready was awkward, to say the least. Very modern, which is fine, but not practical and not satisfactory for a four/five star hotel. Lights in the toilet and bath rooms were triggered by motion, but quickly went off and could not be re-triggered by waving one's arms. The shower closet leaked into the main room with every use.
Overall it's fun, well located & humorously designed - but this gets tired after encountering design problems in rooms & public spaces - the lounge chaise's just don't work in rooms & aren't comfortable - you can't watch tv mounted above them as there's no place to reposition it as the rooms are so small - book a suite if you want a practically sized space. Most rooms have showers & sinks in middle of room so the floor gets all wet - part of W's "open studio plan"- ugh- again if you want a real, separate bathroom you'll need to go up to the cool corner rooms or suites. Minibars are surprisingly dull - W should look at Kimpton properties to see them done right. Really chips & peanuts?? This is London! Good bar, room service & staff helps.
the location is excellent, but the bed is not that comfy
Great location. Love the staff. Great W Lounge and Wyld Club. Great drinks. Amazing Gym.
Excellent location, the staff is quite friendly, lots of hotel security, always checking your ID to the point of exhaustion. The rooms are clean and very spacious, the bathrooms are sort of in the open so there is very little privacy to do your business. The W Hotel has a very happening Bar at night, be thankful that you are a guest because getting in might be a problem. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel, which is in the heart of London.
As of May 2011 Leicester Square was completely torn up... not the W's fault, but a bummer none the less. Still, the hotel rooms were absolutely quiet; even with one of the most happening night clubs in the area on the first floor. Guests show their keys in the evenings and jet past the line that forms on the sidewalk to get in. The room itself was modern and comfortable, but the best thing was the hotel locale. It's a winner and I'll stay there again.
