This is a very nice, modern hotel that is centrally located. You need to take a taxi to go anywhere, but this hotel seems to be in the middle of all the action. This is the 1st time i have stayed at a W hotel, and really like my experience.
We arrived late on a friday night, and there was a very loud club like music from within the hotel. This did not bother me, as i know that W hotels tend to be trendy and clubby. They have a lounge on the 2nd floor which is very hip. The check in was fast and smooth. We did not have any breakfast at the hotel, but went to a coffee shop that is right next to the hotel.
My room was very modern with very interesting light arrangements that did not bother me as others have mentioned. It had separate shower and toilet rooms. The double sinks are hidden behind a pivoting door which is very cool, and the tv was behind a glass that looks like a mirror when its off. The beds were very comfortable. We had no problems hearing the music from the bar/lounge in the hotel. My room was a 'Spectalur Room' with and outdoor terrace, but we did not use it.
The concierge was very helpful with every request we had.
I would recommend this hotel to young, hip people.
