W Hotels Has Got Its Mojo Back with the W Taipei's Rooftop Pool
When the W Taipei opened last month, we were relieved to see the guestrooms looked far better than the W London. And now we're heaving another sigh of relief over the hotel's pool scene.
HotelChatter Flickr member Ken Lee dropped in this shot of the rooftop pool and it looks just like what we'd expect from a W hotel. Lately, W Hotels has seem to lost some of their design libido, perhaps a side effect of over-expansion into some questionable markets. But the W Taipei pool has us ready to strip down, particularly those lounge chairs siting in a few inches of water.
The bare tree in the background did give us some concern about the weather and admittedly, Taipei is not having the best weather for swimming right now with temps around 66 degrees. But in a few more weeks, things should warm up. And the hotel's AWAY spa is set to open on April 30 so you can have a rubdown after pooltime.
Rates start at about $240 a night for a wonderful room with two beds.
