Designed by award-winning architects Jestico+Whiles, the glamorous W London, reinvents 5-star luxury.
Dressed in translucent glass, it features a stunning façade light installation; it constantly reinvents the building.
Internally the architects worked on enhancing the sense of space and theatre. The interiors, by Concrete Architectural Associates, stress on trendy design.
A disco ball cloud sculpture surrounded by black glass walls set the sexy tone of the lobby.
In contrast the bedrooms are bright and roomy.
A standard hotel room layout has been rearranged: the vanity unit seats In the middle of the room featuring an amazing Gessi design.
The screening room, gym and Away spa – a white cocoon straight out of Logan’s Run – are well worth the trip, as is the Spice Market restaurant, headed by Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
This could almost be a night market in Asia, with its warm lighting and shelves laden with tinned coconut milk and fat cinnamon sticks. The food is exciting – big bowls of fish in fragrant broth, beautiful salads of mango, tamarind and herbs – though the seating is uncomfortably low.
