Singapore and Guangzhou Each To Brighten Up With A New W Hotel This Fall
UPDATE, 6.21.12: The W Sentosa Cove is now opening September 16th while the W Guangzhou is set for December 31, 2012.
Things are certainly going to be heating up for W Hotels in Asia as 2012 draws to a close. We're talking about two properties in particular—the W Singapore - Sentosa Cove (above) and W Guangzhou.
While the latter is scheduled to open in October, W Sentosa, located in an upscale marina residential community outside of Singapore's city center, is gearing up for an August opening. Which is good news for any Lady Gaga fans who heard about her recent stint in Sentosa, and have been wanting an excuse to go see the place for themselves.
But out of all the new Ws opening this year and next, which one in particular strikes your fancy?
Compared to Sentosa, the Guangzhou building itself is a much darker, moodier looking skyscraper that's comprised of one tall tower linked to another one half its size—the end result looks a little like a backwards 'h'. W Guangzhou will have 320 guest rooms, plus a spa and two restaurants.
Looking at all the new W's popping up these days—we've recently spotted the W Beijing and W Bangkok, both still under construction, plus the newly-opened W Paris Opera—we definitely are favoring certain ones over others. While Bangkok's tower is super sleek and clean-looking, we must admit, we prefer the darker, asymmetrical vibe of the new Guangzhou tower.
