Starwood's W Hotels has appointed Damon Page as General Manager of the W Hong Kong.

The role marks a milestone for the 3rd generation hotelier, whose passion for hotels has resulted in an impressive career spanning twenty-five years. From all over his native Australia to destinations such as New Zealand, Guilin, Moscow, Warsaw, Malaysia and Maldives.

Having worked with the W brand for the past three years, Damons previous role saw him responsible for the opening of the W Maldives, the brands first Retreat & Spa, where he oversaw the hiring, training and motivating of 220 staff from 24 countries around the world.

Commenting on his new challenge, Damon said, There are few industries as dynamic as the hotel industry, and what city in the world is as vibrant and energetic as Hong Kong? We have the privilege of delivering our Whatever/Whenever service philosophy in a very stylish environment within the citys newest centre of commerce, entertainment and culture. Its a thrilling project to be a part of.

The 393-room W Hong Kong, which begins accepting reservations from October 2008, is located in the heart of the citys burgeoning West Kowloon commercial, entertainment, and cultural district. The new hotel will be the closest structure to the citys newest commercial landmark, the International Commerce Centre, and the only hotel connected to the citys luxurious Elements shopping mall.

The hotel will offer some of the citys most spacious guest rooms, outfitted with the finest audio/video technology including standard High Definition Sharp 42 LCD televisions, KEF 5.1 surround sound systems with DVD /CD players, and i-Pod docking stations and bathtub LCD screens. The rooms will all have both wired and wireless high-speed Internet access as well as generous workstations for business travelers. W Hong Kong will also boast one of the citys most highly elevated swimming pools at 700 feet above street level, and will introduce Hong Kong to Bliss spa.

W Hong Kong will mark the W brands third hotel in Asia with plans to open hotels and retreats in Bangkok, Guangzhou, Macao-Studio City, Shanghai, Yokohama, Bali, and Koh Samui.
