Born on the other side of the world, it's a bit bizarre just how much the W HK feels like home to me.
I've stayed here something like 100+ nights. Everytime is better.
Indeed there are the constants: The rooms rock, the parties and DJs never disappoint, the pool feels like Alice in Wonderland hooked up with CeeLo and Keith Richards (the cooler 80s version) and the love child went on to design swimming pools.
What gets better, always, is the service. The whole staff, from the awesome guys checking bags on the 1st floor, to the always friendly people at the check-in counter, to girl who gives the morning wake-up call (was she recruited just because her voice is spectacular?) - all take a huge effort to know me better and better.
Also, there is the great Sammy Yick (SPG team) whose face should be on PPT slides for every SPG training event worldwide with the caption, "Sammy Yick, Greatest SPG Employee Ever." Sammy seems to know more about me that I do -- what kind of rooms I prefer, food I enjoy (junk) and should be eating (vegetables), music I like, etc, etc. Every time I check into the W, she prepares a room with everything that I possibly need - without asking. She connects me with the rest of the staff, and treats my guests and I with an amazing amount of respect and friendliness. Sammy and her team are the main reason why I come back again and again to this hotel. SPG bosses: Take note of whatever she is getting paid and increase the amount 10x. Seriously, she's really an asset to your hotel - never let her go.
Thanks W friends for a great stay. See you next time -->
