The W London hotel

Perhaps the best way to describe this hotel is slick, but it’s also got a sense of humour. Replete with signature details such as the W bed and the comfiest pillows designed by the city’s ultimate fashion disrupter, Jack Irving, and all things controlled by the swipe of an iPad.

The restaurant

W Hotel is somewhere that everything feels like a treat. There’s something sparkly about the whole experience so when it comes to dinner and drinks, it’s a chance to dress up and have fun. The Perception is the luxe lounge style restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as music and live events. Think theatrical lighting, innovative cocktails and nothing is too much trouble.
