Will You Be A Lover Or A Hater Of The W London?
The W London Leicester Square may have only been open two weeks but it's already hosted the official BAFTA aftershow party, the Vogue.com 15th Birthday Party and the NME Awards aftershow party. But what about those who make it up to the rooms? The paying guests, what do they think of it? Time to check TripAdvisor.
The reviews so far are pretty mixed: it seems people either love it or hate it. In a nutshell, here's what both sides are banging on about.
Haters: Two things stand out: the general lack of cleaners, which apparently is pretty poor for a five-star hotel, and the noise levels, which are not conducive to sleep. The conclusion: make no mistake, this is a party hotel.
Lovers:: The hotel's uber trashy, flashy decor seemed to impress with the lovers stating this as the feature which most impressed. Party animals also loved the noisy, bustling bar and the chirpy, friendly staff who even when mistakes were made (and there seemed to be a few) did their best to rectify them.
Even when the Daily Mail reviewed the hotel there were a couple of teething problems - the shoes weren't shined on time and a non-requested wake up call was received at 7am (which, incidentally, is the opposite of what happened when we recently stayed at the W New Orleans and nearly missed our plane. Harrumph).
But hey, on the plus side, nobody's mentioned being grossed out by the shower curtains behind the beds. Maybe they really do look better in the flesh.
