Rated 5 out of 5 by Carol20 An Über chic hotel
Our family's home-away-from-home hotel, it has become our favorite among all the other hotels in hongkong. From the moment you enter their elegant front doors, you'll be greeted by this wonderful smell, a signature scent of w hotels, to the super chic lobby that's a "happening" place to the amazingly stylish modern rooms and very friendly staff, this hotel is worth your every dime spent and more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KR11 Trendy but not comfortable
staff were very nice and friendly. hotel was trendy but not comfortable, the bar is very pretentious. the pool - AWESOME.
"the kitchen" restaurant was like a canteen and VERY loud with families - not for an alone business traveller.
Dry Cleaning - AWFUL - had to be sent back to be redone and was still bad.
Careful they bill your card for items you dont take after you check out!!

A few things the hotel couldn't do:
1. Upgrade me to a suite, as hotel almost full. but good room anyway with nice Ocean view.
2. Clear the rain so we could enjoy the poolbar for an apertif
3.serve the fantastic light lunch buffet in the livingroom on saturday.
Yah, soo what. Great hotel. Like it a lot. Convenient, good quality, great beds, good sound system.
I'll be back

Rated 5 out of 5 by Autopickem As good as any Luxury Collection I have been to
Got a cool corner room with a great view. Inside and outside of the room, the details at this hotel are as good as any Luxury Collection I have ever stayed at.. Clean and Comfortable, this makes the hotel worth the price. Did I mention you can get her from the airport with no transfer needed..The only con is that the lighting and curtain controls takes some time getting use to

Rated 5 out of 5 by CA300 A Truly Memorable Experience
I just spent 17 nights (and survived a typhoon) at the W Hong Kong, and have to say that every aspect of my stay was absolutely superb. The hotel staff went over and above on every occasion to exceed my expectations. You could tell that they genuinely cared you were there, and would do everything in their power to help make you feel at home.
I've stayed at hundreds of SPG properties around the world and W Hong Kong by far has been the best when it comes to SPG Platinum recognition. There were a ton of great perks that seem to be unique to this location. Not to mention, some really nice touches, like generous suite upgrades and full size Bliss products in the bathroom.
The attention to detail across every function of the hotel was something that really stood out to me. Peter and his team have done a fantastic job of taking the W vision to a new level in Hong Kong. I’m looking forward to staying here again on my next visit and would highly recommend this property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MeePoon Another wonderful W
This hotel is beautiful and the staff are very nice and capable. I loved the hotel amenities and the nightly chocolates are not only delicious but very cute shaped as gold balls. My only suggestion for improvement is to keep the gym a little cooler and make the room's television control easier to work. I wish I had more time to enjoy the hotel but had to work!

This is easily in the top 5 properties I have ever stayed at. I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else in Hong Kong after my recent stay.
The hotel co-located with Kowloon station and the Elements mall which makes it on of the most accessible and convient properties in Hong Kong.
Be sure to check out the breakfast buffet and wet deck.

The W HK is really great. I stay there quite a bit and they recognize me by name and also invariably upgrade me. They really go above and beyond from the doorman to reception to management.
The biggest drawback is location. It is about as convenient as possible to get to HK island for being in Kowloon, but it is still not ideal.

From landing at HKG to checking in at the W never takes more than an hour - can't beat the convenience.
Excellent rooms with great views and the team is always flexible with room upgrades for SPG guests.
I normally do the continental breakfast which has more than everything one can ask for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jll888 This hotel has a great pool
The pool of W Hong Kong is one of the Hotel great facilities that you shouldn't miss out. Located at 76 floor, with the view of the infinity pool, it was just awesome. Not to mentioned enjoying the jacuzzi while look over the spectacular view of Hong Kong.

over all the hotel was satisfactory, BUT my room's shower room and bathroom's tiles were extremely dirty with white residue. And would recommend free wifi for hotel guests in their rooms

Rated 5 out of 5 by DavidML01 Treated Like a King
I can honestly say this was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. We are SPG Platinum and used our suite upgrades so that we had a suite on a high floor. Aside from having a steep learning curve on the lighting systems, the suite and bathroom were top of the line and very quiet. We had a view of the harbor; views of Hong Kong itself are hard to come by, since they are pretty much blocked by a 118 story building. For us the location worked great. Although not in the center of Kowloon, there is a major level shopping mall attached to the hotel. More importantly, there is one stop direct access to Hong Kong Central metro station plus direct check in for the airport. We checked our bags and had our boarding passes issued before ever leaving the complex.
The W has a supersized breakfast buffet with a gigantic array of foods to choose from - both Asian and western. Breakfast was really excellent. We did eat at the dinner buffet one night and were disappointed in the seafood. Again rhe array of foods was staggering, but the seafood was not good. When we were asked to fill in a customer survey on the meal, we mentioned the seafood issue. The next evening we were called by Brendan of the staff who apologized and offered us a complimentary room service dinner, which was delicious. What was truly astounding was when I checked out, I found that he had also waived the cost of the buffet we had the previous evening, and that was not inexpensive.
All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They really like what they are doing and they made the stay top notch. I would recommend the W Hong Kong to anyone as a great place too stay.

Second stay in W hotel HK and the service standard remains high. Staff were very friendly.
Gym equipped with sufficient machines and instructors were equally friendly and helpful.
Will definitely choose W in HK again.

Traveling as much as I do, staying in as many hotels as I do, I can honestly say that the W Hong Kong is one of the very best hotels in the region.
It makes traveling exciting again, great food, great staff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CWLyon Cool Hotel but better locations in HK
If you are making a quick transfer or want a party hotel then W is good choice. Not great if you want to spend a few days around HK as the location is awkward and you can easily walk anywhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SY84 Great hotel for those working at ICC
Location: Pros - located next to ICC and above the Kowloon Station. Cons - the MTR lines that run through Kowloon station does not get to the TST area.
Service: Most team members embodies the Whenever, Whatever ethos and have been very courteous and helpful throughout the stay.
Cleanliness: Overall cleanliness has been good, except for the toilet area where there were occasionally a lingering smell.
Room Condition: Most features are good but the work desk area could make do with brighter lighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelvin81 5-star and nothing less
Check-in was speedy & efficient and the room was ready at 8am!!! I had requested an early check-in but I know this is subjected to availability. I was very blessed to be able to get a room at such an early hour! Special mention to the guest relations manager, Alex, as well as the front desk staff, Francis, for making my check-in and stay a pleasant and enjoyable one!
The cool corner room is huge is size and comes with full amenities. It commands a breathtaking view of both the cityscape as well as the beautiful Victoria Harbour. Even the ensuite bathroom commands such a view!
The rooftop swimming pool is also very impressive. I simply love lazing on the sundeck as well as doing my laps in the pool. One word: AWESOME!
Its location is perfect, with the Kowloon MTR station located adjacent to it. Guests can also enjoy in-town check-in service at the station if they choose to take the Airport Express. I think this is really convenient!
All in all, W Hotel is truly amazing and impressive and I won't hesitate returning for more stays in the future. They edge out many hotels out there not just in terms of its hardware but also in its software - the staff! Thumbs up!

W Hong Kong rocks! By far, one of the BEST Starwood establishments we have ever stayed at!!
My family and I had the pleasure of staying at the W Hong Kong for more than a week during our recent HK trip. We couldn't be more pleased with the attentive service and warm hospitality we were welcomed to the moment we stepped foot into the hotel.
Like all other W hotels, the environment is modern chic mixed with youthful vibes. Inviting rooms, comfortable beds, and excellent harbor views, W Hong Kong definitely does not disappoint! We loved the atmosphere, but more importantly, we were most impressed with the level of professionalism from the W staff. It was beyond our expectation as they work hard to make all of their guests feel right at home!
Sammy, our front-desk receptionist, is such a great asset to this hotel. Not only was she friendly and very helpful, she ensured our entire stay was comfortable and enjoyable. We left for a few days to travel to other parts of Asia, but she made sure we were well taken care of upon our return. She left such a great impression during our stay, we cannot imagine staying anywhere else besides the W the next time we are in HK again!

I have stayed here many times there are a lot things i love about this hotel and few things i don't like.
3-right above elements mall
4-Kowloon station right down stairs
Having said that as an SPG Platinum there is no executive lounge and breakfast is never offered. Very hard to get upgraded they are busy cant fault them for that but its always nice to be upgraded once in awhile.
But the 5 Stars is because one of there young staff at the front door Gary saw that I was not feeling well and went out of his way to find me Medical attention thanks Gary.
