It is now 4:30 AM and I am lying here in my room unable to sleep. I arrived at the hotel near midnight for check-in and after a late night (delicious) pizza from room service, I was ready to hit the hay. I put my head on the pillow and heard a faint thumping noise in the room. I thought it would pass but after a half an hour or so it just seemed to get louder and louder. I started to read and reread my emails and chat with some friends online. At 3 AM the noise of music was so loud I just wanted to bury my head in a pillow. By now I was on the sofa in the living room of the suite and actually felt the vibrations on the floor with my feet. My friend was sleeping blissfully near me so I didn't want to call the hotel to complain in fear it would wake him up. At 4 AM I gave up and called the hotel who said that they will try to find the source of the problem. A few minutes later the music was quieter albeit still audible. Now at 4:36 AM the music and thumping vibrations are back and I still can't fall asleep. I am just writing this review because I have nothing better to do at 4:37 AM when I cannot sleep.
Otherwise, the other is one of the best hotels I have been to so far. The design is mind boggling. Every tiny detail was well thought out. I am constantly holding myself back from wow. The service is outstanding. Quick help and answers to my questions and needs. The staff here seams a bit cocky to me, but I would be cocky too if I worked in the W Guangzhou. It's an absolute stunner. The food so far has been great, nothing to write home about, but I have not tried the breakfast yet. The suite was quite big, I wish I got the one with the balcony though. Perhaps next time.
I like the beat of the song now. It got a thump thump thumpity-thump-thump-thump *bit of drumwork* and again, thump thump....
If they do not have Tylenol for me in the morning I will be really frustrated.
Anyways, if you offer top notch Bose sound systems in your rooms, you should make the rooms more soundproof.
