My wife and I just returned from a week in Europe. Our last stop was 23 hours in London. We got tickets for Les Miserables at the Queen's Theatre, which is 1 block from the W. I am an SPG Gold, so I try to stay at SPG properties when I can. The W was right in the middle of Leicester (pronounced Lester for us ignorant Americans! You should have seen the looks I got when I said Lie-Chester!) Square. I know that the W's can be a "funky" property, and some of the reviews are not glowing. But we decided on the W for SPG and location. We were NOT disappointed! OK, so it is "hip", whatever that really means. It is a nice property. We were greeted immediately, and very pleasantly at the front door by a bellman. Didn't need any assistance with the 1 carry on bag, so they graciously told us to go to the lobby to register. When we took the elevator to the lobby, registration was right there. Bernardo checked us in. Some of the reviews say that the front desk was "snotty", "rude", and "condescending". This could have not been further from what we encountered. Bernardo was excellent and went out of his way to be courteous and gracious. Registration was quick, and we got a great room. YES, the hallways are dimly lit. But the room was great! We heard NO loud music which bothered us and we had a great night's sleep! YES, it is expensive. But every hotel around Leicester Square was. And London is. But for location convenience, and quality of the rooms, and the staff, we would definitely stay at the W London again!
