Rated 5 out of 5 by cn43 Friendy staff. Modern and chic hotel
I love this hotel. This staff are very frienfly and out-going. In particular, Juliana who I believe is one of the managers, was very helpful when I was having issues with my room key. The rooms are clean and fairly large.Th area is currently under construction but all the neccessary tourist attractions are within easy walking distance. The club there is very lively with lots of beautiful people. The gym is well equiped with free weights and machines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by boxster Phone and Wifi not working
I was put on the room 2316 on SPG preferred guest floor. I did not have internet coverage and I relied on room wifi to get connected to my colleagues in other rooms. The first thing I did was to connect my iPhone with room wifi. However, it was rejected even I put in right room number and last name. I tried few times and still not working. And then I tried calling the front desk thru the phone button "Whatever" or press "0". But found out the phone also not working. Ended up I had to go down to the reception desk and told them to fix it. I had to go out right after. The problem was fixed after I am back.
Although this is not a big deal and was a technical issue, it will affect the high quality image of W hotel or SPG preferred guest priority.
Another thing is about the parking, how come there is no direct hotel access from parking level and have to go through W serviced Apartment?
Just my 2 cents

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rich2809 Outrageously Fantastic Hotel !
I have stayed at lots of W hotels all around the world and most are OK. This one is by far my favourite. I had a marvellous suite and it really was marvellous.
In my head this is how a stay at a W should be. It's exciting, it's fun it's cool.
Stunning decor and an interesting view, Staff friendly and communication with them is easy.
Room was so clean, bathroom a delight. First tv in a bathroom that you can A. See, B. control without a remote, whilst in the bath.
I had room service for breakfast and lunch, sitting on my huge terrace and it was a fantastic experiance.
Gym was ok
I want to come back very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mosu Overall Great Luxurious Hotel
I loved everything about this hotel and my Favorite in Guangzhou. However the service needs to be slightly quicker in all areas.
Looking forward to my next W stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bradly81 Sucessfully rooted in China, mainland.
I was highly pumped up for the news that another W property had opened in China and I finally got to seize the chance to experience it.
First off all, It wasn't hard to find the hotel at all.
So I would say that this hotel has a good location.
I was given an upgrade to a suite which was another delight to start off this kind of a new and hip hotel.
The room was pretty comfy and gave off calm vibes throughly with black color mainly used.
However the automatic system controlling curtains and sheers was a little dysfuntional taking sometime to make it work.
Gym and sauna were not so big as I had thought it would be but still well-equipped though.
Very first W lounge was attractive enough with gorgeous decors.
by the way, their suites don't have any large sized bath amenity unlike other W hotels which was somewhat a downer to me as much as I love bliss.
but good breakfast buffet, W lounge, friendly, caring staffs and fabulous room completely made me over the small issue.
Every staff seemed to try their best for my requests and I would really like to appericate those efforts.
Definitely will stay here again if I visit Guangzhou later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikita first W at Mainland China
I did stay here at its 1st anniversary. Hotel met almost all my expectations except pool and mens lockers area. I am frequent guest at W Hong Kong. And HK has much better facilities comparing to here. My quality of sleep was ruined by strong construction sounds from outside started at 6 a.m. (!). I will wait with my next visit until this will finishes. Staff is perfect. Design is excellent. Rooms are mint. AND it has very good SPG Platinum lounge!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nohtee New, Elegant and Clean
Unlike W TPE or W HK, W GZ is kind of "Elegant" from the deign of its room. Got an upgrade to Spectacular room, however no view at all... not that "Spectacular" than W Taipei's Spectacular room.
The pool is fabulous. It's my favorite place in W GZ. The gym however, is not fabulous. Change room is nice and no one using the hot bath when I went there. I feel like a king in Ancient Chinese Dynasty when I took a bath there.
WOOBAR is also nice to hang out at. However, this year's Xmas tree is a disaster.
