I had never stayed at a W before so was looking forward to a new experience. I also had no concept of what kind of hotel to would be other than that it was a Starwood property. So I knew it was going to good. However, I was pleasantly surprised by by everything that happened and at every touch point starting with the Mercedes S Class airport pickup to the flawless and fast checkout.
Th entire hotel is uniquely styled with a very modern interpretation. The lobby almost resembles a disco in the evenings with loud music and subdued lighting. But all of this is perfectly balanced with the excellent service and in no way jeopardizes the 5-star treatment you would expect. The hallways have music playing and there are lights in all the right places giving you almost, but not quite, sensory overload.
The rooms also have very modern styling but deliver on all the luxury and hotel amenities necessary. The room is controlled through a touch screen pad and allows you to adjust all the lights in the room, the AC, and also functions as your alarm clock. All very cool! Like in most Asian 5-star hotels, the bathroom is spacious and modern with separate toilet, shower, and bath. The room service was efficient and the food very good.
Breakfast was another highlight with a good selection of fruit, eggs dishes, cereals, and Chinese and Indian breakfasts. It was vey nice that the waiters took egg orders at the table and didn't have to stand around at the buffet waiting. The only issue was the way the booths were arranged because it required people on the outside to continually having to get up for those sitting on the inside.
On balance, a unique hotel with a niche clientele looking for something with a cool vibe.
