Hotel Review: The W Hong Kong

Our Review:

“Cool” is the first word that comes to mind when entering the W Hong Kong’s lobby, as the lighting is dim and the electronic music is very loud. But the fear that the hotel might be more fashionable than functional will dissipate as soon as one reaches the rooms, which are immaculate in every way. The standard iPod docks, harbor views and toiletry products by Bliss go along way to making traveler’s feel as chic as the hotel. The highlight of the hotel, however, is its outdoor rooftop pool on the 77th floor. The views of ICC – the world’s 4th tallest tower – are fantastic, as is the pool bar. We recommend that you book this Hong Kong hotel a few months in advance since it is a very popular place to stay.

The Verdict:

It’s an easy recommendation to make, as the W Hong Kong is not only one of the most stylish hotels in Hong Kong, but one of the most luxurious too.
