As a Londoner, I always fantasized about staying at the W Hotel in London but never really had a reason nor the extra cash to splash out on such luxury. Well since temporarily moving to Barcelona and returning to London for a two night stay to take care of some business, I decided to just go for it and give in to my curiosity.
The positives: I was upgraded to a Spectacular room from a Wonderful room which was nice and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The gym was top notch. I could easily spend all night in the bar socializing with friends and their cocktails are very good indeed. Location was top notch. I was really nice to stay in the "center" of town and not have to catch the Underground to make it home.
The negatives: I couldn't for the life of me find a room service list in the room which didn't really benefit the hotel much. I also used the Wired business center to print out some documents and found that the printer was not working, which the hotel acknowledged, but just put an "out of order" sign on it...I thought this was strange for a W Hotel as printers are not the expensive. I did contact the front desk and they printed my documents for me.
Overall: I enjoyed my stay at the W Hotel in London and would stay again if given the opportunity. I have recently become an SPG Gold member so will look forward to my next stay there. That and I'll need to restock on my Bliss products that I love.
