A Sexy Skyscraper for the Upcoming W Hotel Bangkok
Just flipping through the Starwood hotels in Thailand recently when the page for the W Bangkok reminded us that yes, the massive metropolis that is steamy Bangkok will finally get its very own W, and soon. We're talking July 2012.
So we took a stroll down Sathorn Roada major thoroughfare with notorious traffic jamsto check out the construction in person, and we have to say that for a hotel with another 10 months to go, it's looking amazing already. It seems that it's just the interior left to work on as the 403-room hotel crafts the signature design-heavy W look.
From the exterior, the building looks super sexy...like the back zipper of a woman's dress sliding down. This medium skyscraper doesn't look odd on the skyline either, as it's surrounded on Sathorn Road by other massive buildings and hotels, including the towering Banyan Tree. One advantage the W has over all those other places? It's right next to the Skytrain (Chong Nonsi stop).
Needless to say we can't wait to see what W does here in Bangkok. A new hotel such as this is surely worth another 20 hours of flights from New York, right?
