Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has officially opened the W Hong Kong. Located in a glittering, new waterfront skyscraper in the heart of the city’s vibrant new commercial, entertainment and cultural district, W Hong Kong features 393 guest rooms, including 42 suites.

The hotel features Asia’s first Bliss Spa and boasts two signature restaurants, one of the city’s most highly elevated swimming pools, a 73rd floor modern fitness facility, 8,200 square feet of convertible, state-of-the-art meeting and event space, and the quintessential W lounge experience.

“We are delighted to bring the W brand to China, continuing our global expansion into the world’s most exciting and intriguing destinations,” said Eva Ziegler, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide and Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts. “Hong Kong’s dynamic mix of style, culture and modern design make it the perfect backdrop for the W brand. The abundance of world-class restaurants, art galleries and luxury retailers in the city contribute to Hong Kong’s emergence as a vibrant international business and leisure destination.”

Offering unobstructed views of Hong Kong’s dazzling skyline, W Hong Kong serves as the centerpiece in the new 92-story Cullinan complex. The hotel is one of the closest hotels in Kowloon to Central Hong Kong Island and is within minutes of both the International Commerce Centre and the city’s newest exhibition space, AsiaWorld-Expo. The hotel connects directly to the one million square foot Elements luxury shopping mall and offers easy access to the City Golf urban driving range, a host of al-fresco restaurants 

W Hong Kong’s 42 luxurious suites all feature dazzling views of the Western Victoria Harbour while offering exclusive amenities. In a city known for its posh presidential suites, W Hong Kong’s Extreme WOW suites offer guests a dining table for eight, an oversized bathing pool, walk-in closets, Swarovski crystal bath fixtures and even an in-room aquarium.

All 393 guest rooms and suites at W Hong Kong feature the latest in technology offerings from Sharp, Bang & Olufsen and KEF, while color schemes and design alternate floors, depending on the designer. Guest rooms also feature the W brand’s signature bed with feather-top mattress, 350-thread count cotton sheets and goose down comforter, an oversized desk, Tivoli clock radio with CD/DVD player, MP3 docking station, high-speed wireless and wired Internet connection and high-definition 42” inch TVs, creating the ultimate urban escape.

The first of W Hong Kong’s two signature restaurants offers a luscious menu featuring prime steak and seafood that’s grilled to thrill. Designed by Glamorous Corp., the space features a chic main dining area, two glass-walled, semi-private rooms and a private table for up to 16 guests. W Hong Kong also features a modern bistro, located on the property’s g+a-designed 6th floor, offering a stylish, open kitchen experience with views of Victoria Harbour through wall-to-wall bay windows.

As the first Bliss Spa in Asia, Bliss Hong Kong will boast two floors of tension-fighting facilities, featuring a retail beauty boutique, two movie-while-you-manicure (and pedicure) loungers, nine treatment suites (including two for couples), men’s and women’s lounges, and relaxation  rooms - perfect for a post-treatment catnap. Trademark Bliss touches include a cleverly compiled menu of super effective services, rhythm and blues tunes and the legendary brownie buffet. In addition to superior spa-ing and exclusive in-room sampling, W guests can look forward to ‘BIP’ (that’s Bliss Important Person) perks, including exclusive sink-side Bliss amenities in-room.

Meeting the heightened demand for event, meeting and conference facilities in West Kowloon, W Hong Kong has designed its high-tech function space for medium-sized groups who seek the highest level in audio/video technology. The hotel offers 8,200 square feet of total function and pre-function space, which includes eight meeting rooms and two private dining rooms. W Hong Kong also features the signature W lounge experience where guests can socialize, relax and mingle while sipping cocktails, a full-service, ultra modern fitness facility and the exclusive W Hotels The Store.
