For 450 pounds a night you can get a smallish room with a king bed, a sink along the wall, separate from the loo and a somewhat decent view. Design and amenity-wise, the room is nothing to be ashamed of--there's floor to ceiling windows, the minibar is well-stocked, the bed looks comfy, there are Bliss toiletries in the bath and the TV looks better than the last TV we turned on in a London hotel room.
However, that price is devastating and it seems to be a near-standard rate for the W. We found a rate for tomorrow night for £456 and that's a fully pre-paid rate with absolutely no changes allowed. Meanwhile, over at The Lanesborough, which Paul pointed out has free WiFi, complimentary butler service, and free porn, you can get a room on Wednesday night for just £395. Now that's something the W should be ashamed about.
