Two days after opening, HotelChatter made it into the W London Leicester Square. So whatís it like? Well itís shiny, sparkly and slightly (intentionally) trashy with lots of leather, dark lighting and neon lights. The public areas are alot smaller than we thought but thatís OK, we donít mind getting intimate with the celebs, especially when the lights are so low.

The most immediate thing you notice? There are mirror balls everywhere: in the entrance, reception, on every floor in the form of giant numbers, a megaball in the bar, Wyld, and even the door numbers are made from miniature balls.

In contrast to the public area's dark, sexy decor, the bedrooms are bright - an almost clinical white. The idea behind this, apparently, is to make sure guests keep partying and not sleeping (what, in the bedroom?). Even the cheapest rooms are an OK size, and, as for the tacky white shower curtains - they don't look so bad in the flesh. There's also a fabulous minibar selection, from Oreos and a cocktail shaker to a "super vibe" and a tenga egg.

But while the inside is bling, the views are not: KFC, Angus Aberdeen Steak house and various amusement arcades grace the streets opposite. Such are the trials of having your hotel in Leicester Square.

Best bit of W London trivia - the naked torso on those sexy dishes happens to belong to one David Gandy Esq.

The hotel is now fully booked until Sunday. But if you fancy a stay next week, rooms will set you back £269. Sex toys not included.
