W Hotel fans know the drill: energetic pop-art decor, cloud-like beds, party atmosphere, cheeky service, business with a side of fun. But what they might not be expecting is a 76th-floor heated salt-water infinity pool and Jacuzzi, still one of the highest in Hong Kong. Slightly surrealist decor with woodland motifs and dramatic lighting calms down (a bit) in the 393 guestrooms, slicked with greens, teals, and gold and butterfly fringed lampshades. Use your Bliss bath products in the slate showers or soaking tub. All in all it’s a youthful tonic to Kowloon’s usual grand dame hotels.
In the Area
Kowloon offers grit to Hong Kong island’s gloss, a dense mass of residential realness bulging with hawkers and salarymen—and some only-in-HK markets. The Star Ferry lets off in Tsim Sha Tsui, home to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, Avenue of the Stars promenade, and the neon-signed awesomeness of Nathan Road (come back to the Jordan section at night). Pop into the Chungking and Mirador Mansions, hulking buildings hiding a warren of once-illicit shops. Northward in Mong Kok, you can find a feathered friend at the Bird Market, a scaly one at the Goldfish Market or new kicks on Sneaker Street.
How to Get There
First of all, I admit that I am very picky on food. Food is hard to meet my expectation. However, W is always my first choice for family lunch/dinner or friends gathering for their food and service, plus atmosphere.
We have been to W Kitchen so many times and every single time it was so satisfying. Last week, we tried Sunday Brunch with free-flow with our 3-year-old. The food selections were incredible. You could even choose 3 different types of Oysters! Seafood was very fresh so couldn’t stop digging in. They served Veuve Cliquot as a free-flow champagne and other cocktails which were fantastic! Our little girl also enjoyed the dessert selections and had a lot of delish food. The staff were friendly and very caring as always. W is probably the BEST buffet in town. If you are looking for a brunch on a lazy Sunday, you must visit W Kitchen. You will never regret!!!
We picked W because it gives you a more relaxing and casual experienced for the staycation. Many luxury hotels are comfortable, classy and elegant, while W Hong Kong is a bit wild, fun and modern.
We have a room with marvellous view from Kowloon side and it gave a peaceful feeling especially when you see it in the evening. It gives a good contrast with the hectic life in Hong Kong. The room is very spacious and all the facilities and furniture are well maintained as if they are just opened.
You could enjoy some of the best experiences in Hong Kong. Just like the pool on the rooftop you could swim and see the brilliant night view from the top of the world.
The dining experience is also marvellous. We had buffet in Kitchen in the evening and it’s a great place to see the beautiful sunset. Given the night view in Victoria Harbour is world renowned, the sunset is just best of all.
The hotel is not those very grand and sumptuous ones, but it gives the ambience of modern luxury as cosy as boutique hotels, thanks to the friendly and cheerful staff members.
A minute but impressive setup is that you won’t need to login for the WiFi with your room number and surname! It’s a lot more convenient and you don’t need to login from time to time!
W hotel hosted the best pool party in town , food and beverages, nice music and impressive performance , what a wonderful and amazing experience :) , and location is very good , with lot of transportation.
