I have to say everything is so perfect in this hotel.
There are always welcome fruits and juice in the lobby for the guests. And the stuff are so friendly when I arrived and checked in. Also, the room service is so effective and the food are very good. I just wait for around 10 mins then the yummy Thai food delivered.
One more thing, thanks for all staffs in W BANGKOK, all of you are so nice to the gay people, friendly greeting and warm blessing make me feel good. Thanks and I'll be there in Sept!

Got upgrade to Studio Suite, the bath room is fantastic and beautiful. The bed is very comfortable, best among all SPG hotels in Bangkok. The pool is very nice.
The food quality in breakfast is not that impressive, that would need some improvement

I have stayed at various hotels in Bangkok, but I have never experienced the level of service that the W Bangkok provided during my stay in April of this year. The hotel design is exceptional, eye-catching and fun! The staff was welcoming and courteous, not in a way that it was part of their job descriptions. The treatment I received felt genuine. It made the stay special. If there was anything to improve, it would only be more options to choose from the in-room dining menu. Great job W Bangkok!

Ok I am little bit old for this hotel but hey it is a groovy place, can I use that word? Looks like they have stolen the best starwood staff from other starwood locations. Close to sky train, river and great restaurants in sathorn and silom area. I have to say the concierge is the best in the business. Breakfast is impressive, everyone was taking pictures of the food. This is my third stay here I love it. Can't wai for spa and restaurant in old Soviet Union embassy building to open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VeryGoodPointsStacey W Bangkok Really WOWed me!
Back in December decided to spend a few nights at the brand new – circa two weeks old – W Hotel Bangkok. I love W Hotels and since I’ve stayed at almost every Starwood property in Bangkok, I just had to check this out.
I arrived after 5 nights in Khao Lak, Thailand at the LM. I was hot, sweaty, sunburned and covered in bug spray. The hotel had cold towels and sparking water in the car that picked me up. I should have arrived at the hotel around 4pm, but due to a late flight and ridiculous traffic it was closer to 5pm when I arrived.
The hotel was preparing for an event that night and the hotel driveway (not sure that’s the best word for it) was lit up and looking spectacular. I was greeted by two bellman who helped with my luggage and escorted me into the hotel.
Once inside I was greeted by the Director of Rooms and the W Insider. After a quick check in the W Insider escorted me to my room on the 11th floor.
As we arrived to the room, she said she had taken the liberty of setting up the room and turning on the a/c and hoped I didn’t mind. Nope, I didn’t mind at all and was thrilled the air was cool. As she started to explain the feature of the room, something caught my eye. It looked like there was a Starbucks Cool Lime Refresher sitting on the desk next to two mini-cupcakes. Was it a mirage? How in the world could the W Bangkok have known that I love and I mean LOVE the Cool Lime Refresher. It wasn’t a mirage, it was real. The W Insider ran over to Starbucks before I arrived and got me one! WOW. The hotel staff took care of every little detail down to ensuring I had my favorite drink on arrival.
It was great and so were the cupcakes (there were also little candies and some shots of something I couldn’t quite identify, but tasted a little like a non-alcoholic mojito.) My Starwood Ambassador (a benefit you get after 100 nights) and the hotel had arranged for the special treats for my birthday.
A about an hour after I got into my room there was a knock at the door. The Assistant General Manger wanted to introduce herself and welcome me to the hotel.
While I was out at dinner they did turn-down service in my room and I returned to find yet another note, this one from the GM, welcoming me and wishing me a relaxing stay.
I was in a Wonderful Room that had huge rounded floor-to-ceiling glass windows with spectacular views of the city and the pool! The room is modern and trendy while functional and comfortable. There was a king-sized W bed adorned with two giant boxing glove pillows, a comfortable chair that swiveled so you could see the TV or the view, a very large working desk with tons of outlets and a really bright light.
The room had one of the most fun “mini-bars” I’ve ever seen. It was stocked full of classic candy in addition to traditional snacks and drinks.
The bathroom is separated from the room by an opaque purple wall and curtain. While you can see through to the bathtub, you can’t see into the shower at all and the gold curtain draws closed so that you can’t see into the toilet either. So you have a little more privacy than some Ws. The bathtub was awesome and the shower had both a waterfall shower head and traditional shower head. The water pressure is great in the shower too.
Everything in the room is controlled by a tablet. From the do not disturb ‘sign’ to the lights, A/C, alarm clock and more, everything you need is just one touch away.
There are several places to eat in the hotel. The Kitchen Table is the hotel’s full service restaurant. I ate at the Kitchen Table on the night I arrived. The menu is very modern and creative, but if you’re not into spicy food, leaves you limited choices. I ended up ordering a pasta and seafood dish. The chef came out of the kitchen to discuss a food allergy I have (tomato!) and asked if he could change the sauce since the sauce on the menu used tomatoes. I appreciated that very much and told him to use whatever sauce he thought worked best. The dish was good, but isn’t something I’d rush back to order again. The hotel, and restaurant, having only been open two weeks will need to continue to work on service in the restaurant. While it wasn’t bad service, it was very slow.
The Kitchen Pantry is a take-away style counter where you can purchase a sandwich, snacks, desserts and drinks and eat them on communal style tables in front of the pantry or take back to your room or whatever. At the pool, you can order from a menu of lighter foods and full drink menu. The service at the pool is excellent and I had lunch there one day. The Khao Pad (chicken fried rice) was delicious – the best meal I had at the hotel, and the cheapest at the hotel (with sparkling water I paid about $12.) In the hotel lobby you’ll find the WooBar, the hotel’s full-service bar. It’s chic and stylish and serves up great drinks.
The Whatever Whenever Team, the hotel concierges, are very willing to assist with any request – seriously, whatever whenever. I noticed the a panel next to the TV which would allow me to connect my computer or iPad to the TV. I didn’t have my cords with me, so I called Whatever Whenever and asked if they had any. About 5 minutes later there was a knock at my door and they had cords for me to borrow.
I really like the W Bangkok and they’re off to a great start. I look forward to seeing what the hotel does with the Heritage Building and would love to see a suite (suites in the main building were set to open in February 2013.) The W is a great addition to the Starwood brand for Bangkok and another fun choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vincos Where Can They Go from Here?
OVERALL IMPRESSION: We are assiduous fans of W Hotels with the rather daunting goal of staying in every one. On a recent trip to Asia, we stayed in 4 - each was exceptional but this one has got to be the most fabulous urban location we have seen yet!
SPG RECOGNITION: Wow. The super hands-on manager, Christian, was waiting to greet us - ultra-cool in the sweltering heat - upon arrival...how could we not love this place? We were then accompanied to our room by a receptionist for a private check-in. And what a room!! Upgraded to a top-category suite (albeit cashing in a couple of certificates). Platinum breakfast is the full spread in The Kitchen Table which looked like a wedding buffet for the amount and variety on offer. In-room amenity was a very welcome “designer” bottle of Italian prosecco chilling for our arrival.
THE ROOM: Absolute glamour. A wall of windows overlooking Bangkok on one side and a wall of peek-a-boo glass offering (startling!) views into the baths (both guest and master) on the other. I loved the allusions to all things Thai - like the bed throw with the print of Thai Boxers' boxers. Or the glove shaped sequin pillows inscribed “Lights” and “ Out” placed on the bed at turn-down! BTW, the Thai allusions are carried throught the whole hotel’s decor - I love the light installation in the elevator lobby made from the backlights of tuk-tuks! The bathroom could be in the movies: huge tub with it’s own TV, double vanity, power rain shower, sumptious towels...you name it.
LOCATION: Right on Sathorn Road - one of the main drags of Bangkok with a station of the elevated train a couple of yards away. Fine restaurants, shopping, even the fruit and produce market all close.
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS: The level of service and attention to detail - down to having the TVs tuned to our favorite channel upon first entering the room!

The hotel was still not fully open upon arrival so was unable to secure an upgrade unfortunately. The room we got was funky and comfortable. Staff was young, friendly and helpful. F&B was excellent!
