Rated 3 out of 5 by Mar13 Bad customer service
i had a very bad experence at W Hotel. this is the 2nd time i encounter same issue.
1. I arrive at 9am, The front desk personnel updated me that my room will be ready in 30mins. i provided them my handphone number and waited at the lobby for the room to be ready.
2. I waited to 940am and nobody call me. i approach the front desk and was told that they will need another 15mins.
3. I reuqested to know why is there further and question that will the room be ready after 15mins? the front desk start telling me that they will try and they are actually 'helping' me to provide me a room early.
5. I had requested to speak to the manager in charge. after 5 mins, an arrogant foreign lady appear. she claim she is the customer relationship manager and shut me off by telling me that they are 'helping' me. They will need another 30 mins. It is a take it or leave it attitude. I am very agitated with the response
I had requested to talk to the GM.
6. 5 mins later, the GM appear. i try to explain to him the issues i had encounter. he apparently does not sound appreaciately of what i Feedback.
I had mentioned below concern to him.
a. It is very important to live up to a customer commitment
b. This is second time such issue happen at W singapore that i had encountered.
c. His staff need to provide a realistic timing and not to take commitment lightly.
d. His customer relationship manager does not appear to enjoy handling a customer issue and had been very arrogant.
e. He need his staffs to live up to their basic commitment and not rely on him to make things happen.
He does not really want to address above issues but keep indicating to me below:
a. He will get the room really for me in next 5 minutes
b. He had aleady upgraded my room to a 'nice' suite room and what else i wanted.
I had corrected him again
a. His staff need to do the right thing when they commit a timing to the customer and make things happen. his staff cannot keep running away from responsibility.
b. The suite upgrade is not what he did for me. I am a platimum memeber and that is done even before the incident happen.
I had requested for all his staff name and detail to write in to express my fustration. He become very defensive and does not want to provide me other than his name card.
I am very disappointed with the service i receive for this short 1 day holiday.
The infrastrctre of the hotel is good in W Singapore, however the hotel can only truely differentiate itself if the people manageing and working in the hotel truely understand how to 'delight' their guest through sincere, professional and committed service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris1967 Quiet and nice hotel on Sentosa, Singapore
While the hotel is nicely located at a marina and has a nice pool for adults and children, also with a well equipped gym and spa, it offers relaxation but still is easy to reach from singapore island and is close to all the attractions on Sentosa itself.
The pool is nice but offers to less shade, especially at the kids pool. The inroom service and food was ok, but the breakfast was not that good: The food selection was not as good as expected for this category of hotel and due to the split breakfast rooms you always have to walk over to the other room to get some things. Hotel room was ok, but not too big and it was marked to be able to sleep 3-4 adults. I wonder how that should be possible. It was room 538....
When checking out there was an item of 160 S$ on the invoice which was not from us, but taken off after complaining.
The afternoon Tea we had as a teaset was tasting like nothing and the tea was not well prepared. This was even worth quality than the breakfast.
Some things are definitely worth of improving!

Nice looking hotel and a premium brand but several gaps in quality of service. Some staff are good where as others are poor. The feeling I get is that the hotel hires a mix of experienced and temp staff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alpha001 Not what I expected of a W
Hotel looks funky but other than that, its all downhill:
1) The staff are not adequately trained to manage customers (other than the reception staff who were very efficient)
2) For paying close to 600 bucks a night, i should not have to carry my bags up and down
3)f&b options are very limited

Rated 4 out of 5 by KarYan Comfortable & leisure stay
We arrive hotel at 2.15pm and try to ask for check in, however the room is not ready yet, we understand that for normal check in time is at 3pm. The check in counter did offer us to enjoy the facilities first while waiting for the room, and they will give us a call once it is ready. In fact, they did call us on 3.10pm to inform the room is ready. We are quite happy on the arrangement and have a pleasant & relax time there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sammy0077777 All good except shower taps
Please get the taps replaced or atleast fixed. My last stay the tap for rain shower was not working, this stay the tap for overhead shower was not working. Horrible design of taps when your hands are wet or soapy, almost impossible to turn them

Rated 4 out of 5 by Derrick2013 W is for Worthy
Had a night stay in the Marvelous Suite and we were pleased with the overall experience. The room was tastefully decorated in W style and the amenities provided was top class.
I was a little surprise to see that some of the finishing/furnishing in the room seemed a bit tired, like a small dent in the wall and stained sofa.
Last but not least, whenever/whatever services did not manage to find 1 candle for our birthday cake, which was quite disappointing.
The breakfast in W Singapore is superb!

Celebrated my Son 2 years old birthday celebration at W Hotel Singapore in marvelous Room.
This is one of the Best hotel I have ever stay, it was so good that I did not regret paying for the room for the first time.
from the design of the room to the small little details in the room which suit the theme room marvelous.
The view from the room is fantastic, Sea view with yachts parking around the area.
staff were very polite and helpful.
I cant wait to stay in other W Hotel in other country since I love traveling around! :) .

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pepper001 W experience over-rated
Nothing impressive nor any special features/facilities to let us feel the W experience. Too expensive for a so-so environment and experience though staffs are extremely friendly for a Sunday.

Stay at the Spectacular Away Room and the room is huge and nicely decorated. I love the lightning of the room and how easy it is to connect your own device to the 40" Samsung TV.
I wish the check-in is faster. Check-in time is at 3pm, but I only got my room at 4pm. Requested for late check-out due to the late check-in, but they only can extend it for 30 minutes.
Nevertheless, I have a great time at W!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ad18 Bad Experience
Stayed 2 two days (17 - 18 Aug) with W Hotel and i am disappointed with the services provided from a world class hotel.
1) Issued Woo-Bar complimentary drink voucher
- I called and ask what time Woo Bar is opened until - Closed at 12 midnight on sunday
- Went down at 11pm - Was informed last order was at 11pm and closed for the day
- Enquired why it was different - Reception told me quote "Maybe not much Business, so close early"
- Went down the next day - Attitude was not pleasant at all when i showed complimentary ticket
- Only offered me the complimentary drink list - did not even bother to show me their menu
2) During check out - Did not even ask me on any feedback
- Did not ask offer information on how i was going to exit the place, end up i missed the shuttle bus out to Vivocity at 1220pm and the next bus is 2 hours later, had to take a cab back to Vivocity
3) Wanted to try out SKIRT - But was told that min dress code was covered shoes and no shorts - Was not informed of that before and nothing was being done to accomodate, simply was being turned away. I had to tour around the area to look for a place to celebrate my birthday dinner.
4) I came for a staycation to celebrate my birthday - None of your staff bothered, i was not expecting any presents of gifts, but I was told W hotel is suppose to "Wow" their customers, apprently i was disappointed that i spent my birthday here with W hotel.

Bed was too soft.
The only complain is that the steam bath was down when we last visited in Feb 2014, now is already Aug 2014, and the steam bath is still under maintenance. My wife was Disappointed as it was her birthday, and she really enjoy the steam bath facility the last time we visited W hotel.
