I stayed at the W Bangkok on the 11 June 2014 for 2 nights with my father. Our flight arrived in the morning and we were allowed to check in at 11am. We arrived by taxi but the hotel is conveniently located next to the metro. Being a huge fan of W hotels, I was very excited to experience the W Bangkok.
All the staff at the reception were very polite and helpful. Upon check in, we were approached by the W Insider who gave us a map of Bangkok and gave us a few tips.
We used this service to figure out what to do during the day around Bangkok. The Whatever/Whenever agent who helped us was very knowledgeable and gave us a detailed itinerary of what we could do. I also called them because I needed to scan some documents. They took the documents and within 10 minutes I received them by email.
We had a Cool Corner Room on the 16th floor. The room was very clean and was about the right size for 2 people. I found that the bathroom layout (all glass doors) gave a very cool feeling to the room but I see why some people might hate it.
I went to the Wet Deck everyday to enjoy the free wifi. I didn't use the swimming pool because the weather wasn't that great. I found the Wet Deck staff to be extremely pleasant, always smiling and giving me bottles of water. I went to the Away Spa to take advantage of a promotion that was going on. It was the best spa experience I had. They let you choose the colour of the lights in your treatment room and the whole feeling of the Spa is very relaxing.
Overall great service in the Woobar and the Kitchen Table (the set lunch is great value). However, I did encounter a small issue whilst having lunch at the Woobar. I ordered a club sandwich and it took nearly 30 minutes to arrive even though the bar was empty. I wasn't in a hurry so I wasn't bothered too much by this.
I must say that I was so impressed by this hotel and so was my dad (who is in his 60s and isn't the usual W hotel guest). Being a hotel management student in Switzerland and having worked for several international luxury chains, I can say that the W Bangkok is a great hotel. Apart from the small issue I had at the Woobar, our stay was perfect. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who's visiting Bangkok and who's looking for a cool/fun luxury hotel.
