W Hong Kong is luxurious, trendy, modern, spotless clean hotel in a very quiet location and with spacious rooms. Even though it may be difficult to explore much by foot from this hotel, it is located on the Kowloon side in a much quieter part which was terrific for me because I was looking for that. If you are looking to be closer to shopping /dining options at Tsim Sha Shui, be prepared to factor some travel time from the hotel by train/car. The W did offer complimentary shuttle service (one way) to Nathan Road from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. so you could easily travel to the more visited parts of Kowloon in spite of the hotel’s location. On the downside, concierge staff on 6th floor often looked anxious to move on and help the next customer. The hotel may have been at full occupancy when I visited and I did notice a few wedding guests which may explain this ‘hurrying’ attitude and long line up at times at the 6th floor welcome desk. However, given the amount I paid for a W Hong Kong hotel room and the service charge that is levied, attention to customer service and sufficient staffing could use some improvements. No free WIFI in your room unless there is an extra charge and/or special room rate and/or certain level of SPG membership may be typical for Hong Kong standards but I have stayed at other 4 or 5 star hotels in Asia, often without any type of membership and have never experienced free WIFI not already being already included in the room at the room rate paid. Overall, I would still highly recommend the W but if you are travelling for business wherein WIFI in your room is important, either make sure it’s included in your room price or check the exact cost of adding it in so you can factor in all the extra costs of your stay besides the room price.
