Stayed here for 5 nights and was expecting a lot from the W brand. The hotel is brand new and located off the Lively Leicester Square and is a short walk to the lovely Covent Garden. The rooms are well designed but have some practical issues. The have an open Basin with a long counter. The bath area has a rain shower but no tub in the 'Wonderful room'. The problem we faced was that shower room door didn't shut properly and made the room messy after shower. The staff overall was very helpful. The concierge ('Whatever Whenever service') is very well connected helped us to book nice theater tickets and a nice nightclub table (Thank you Philipo and team!). But as the name suggests, this is not a 24/7 service it works from 8.30 am to 8.30 pm. The hotel has an excellent must visit bar and we had a very nice evening with our friends there. Since the hotel, bar and club all have the same entrance you will always be greeted with a bouncer asking you to show your room key every night after 10 pm which made us feel unwelcome like a typical London Night Club. Also if you borrow an umbrella you are made to sign and are told if you don't return the umbrella by 11.30 pm the same will be charged to your room!!! Never have other hotels of similar standard have done that. Also WiFi is very expensive at 16 pounds a day (Even cheaper hotels in Europe had this complementary). Staying at W London was quite and experience overall.
