Singapore’s Raffles, Marina Bay Sands, and Fullerton Bay hotels may have the name and reputation, but what these luxe stays have in class, they don’t quite have in ‘fun factor’. Brighten up your Singaporean sojourn with a stay at one of these playful and quirky boutique hotels.
W Hotels first opened their doors in 1998 and since then they've continued to focus on world class DJs and super-cool parties.
This is a winning formula as younger 5-star guests also love the look and feel of this experience.
Situated just a few blocks from the Pearl River, it's within the precinct of many of Guangzhou's best restaurants, bars, designer shopping and it's also located close to the offices of Fortune 500 Companies.
Its lobby, foyers and public spaces are a haven for avant-guard designers. A touch of the quirky, with artwork, furniture and contemporary beats all a signature of the W brand.
Throw in some multi-coloured neon lights throughout and they've perfected a mood not felt elsewhere in this city.
With in-room cocktail mixing kits and BOSE speakers, the party starts here. Add the super-comfortable W signature beds, all the amenities and 'cool' nick-knacks, and this is our hotel of choice.
Guangzhou, formally known as Canton, has the best Cantonese food in the world, as you would expect, right on your doorstep.
If you would prefer to dine-in, then guests can enjoy contemporary western comfort food or exquisitely crafted Japanese at 'I by Inagiku' with a sushi & sake bar, outdoor dining and conceptual dining room.
Staff at the Concierge desk were extremely helpful, recommending the best of the local precinct and while I was chatting, they booked my bullet train to Hong Kong and arranged my transfers.
This attention to detail and unexpected little extra makes a great 5-star hotel even better.
Genuine 5-star services are always a treat and best of all, it's all delivered with a unique and edgy personality.
W Hotels around the world are a growing family and their close network and unique character is apparent, making guests feel at home, wherever they may be.
