“Best hotel I've ever stayed in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2012

Wow! You feel like entering a club when walking into this amazing hotel. While places like the Sheraton or Ritz Carlton are without doubt world class hotels, they can not beat the W when it comes to style and vibe. In addition to the convenient location above the Kowloon MTR station, the Elements shopping mall just underneath etc, the hotel itself is amazing. We happened to stay there when their new bar ("The Woobar') was officially launched as well as a photo exhibition of the famous music photographer Mick Rock being opened in the foyer (The exhibition will be open till September). All hotel guests were invited to the opening party in the evening which included free champagne, cocktails and canapes.
The pool on the rooftop is spectacular, featuring one of the best views over HK. The brunch buffet that the hotel offers is not cheap (~40$US) but it is really worth the money with a huge choice of freshly prepared food, including excellent sushi, a wide range of authetic thai food, fresh praws and lobster, salads and a huge selection of delicious desserts. If staying for a few days I can definitely recommend trying it out!

CarefulSlippery - what an accolade! This morning I shared your review with all Talent Coaches at W Hong Kong and we are all inspired to be viewed as such by every guest who stays here. Of course, by our very nature, the W brand will not be everyone's cup of tea, but for those who like a hotel which offers a friendly, professional, and natural service style combined with an edgy, young and energetic vibe - we believe we fit the bill. Demographics don't matter much either and we have many fans in their 50s, 60s and beyond.
On Friday night you experienced one of our regular "W Happenings" at the hotel to which all inhouse guests are invited. Glad you had a great time with us! Looking forward to having you back soon and be assured that when you do, we'll be here for you 24/7. Best wishes, Peter Hildebrand

Comfortable , modern rooms. Awesome rooftop 25m lap pool. Gym is fantastic with great views over the harbour. Staff are super friendly. Location is great , very convenient and all rooms look to have great views over the harbour. Breakfast buffet was superb. If I had to look for a downside the two stage lifts to get the rooms and the only 2 lifts servicing the top floors was a bit slow but in all this is a fantastic hotel.

Stayed here in June 2012. Have stayed here before. The hotel has an excellent location situated above the Kowloon MTR station and part of the Elements shopping mall which has just about everything. The beds are excellent and offer such an excellent opportunity for a great sleep. Being above the Airport Express station i went and checked my bag in and got my boarding pass, then returned to my room watched a movie and worked on my laptop until late in the day before jumping on the airport express only about 3 minutes away. Fantastic stay

Dear thesmdm, it is fantastic to know that more and more travellers to Hong Kong are discovering the ultimate convenience of staying at W Hong Kong. It is true that we are strategically located very conveniently above a very slick transportation hub with easy access to all parts of Hong Kong, but also with speedy rail service to the airport as well as bus connections to China. All this is just a stroll away via very upmarket shopping mall directly below the hotel. thesmdm, thank you for taking the time to write on Tripadvisor and we look forward to having you back soon. Best wishes, Peter Hildebrand
