Born to be unique? Then you’ll love W London – Leicester Square’s exciting new look. The luxury hotel has a super-charged new chapter – in the form of a multi-million-pound transformation of all 192 guest rooms and suites.
Aiming to shatter the traditional concept of luxury, its provocative new look and innovative in-room technology aims to give guests full control of their stay.
What’s more, the hotel has partnered with fashion visionary and dynamic artist, Jack Irving, to create a one-of-a-kind ‘techorative’ pillow – along with a range of cool in-room experiences.
Much like its guests, every room at W London is unique. Ever the rebel, the hotel is the first in the UK to embrace the full DigiValet technology – one of the most advanced tablet-based systems in the industry which allows each guest to be in control of their stay right from check- in.
Upon entry, music and lighting greet the guest to offer a truly immersive and memorable stay, which can all be customised to specific moods. Whether you’re ready for a nap and looking to take on London’s nightlife, there’s a mood for it all.
A user-friendly tablet controls the in-room temperature, lighting and media, including personal streaming services, at the touch of a button, while also showcasing a taste of the freshest beats being made and played across the city.
Don’t forget about the tunes, either. W London has teamed up with Kobalt, a music tech company, to curate playlists showcasing London’s coolest up-and-coming artists.
Global music-lovers can also tune in to hear what’s playing in real time at any of the 55 W Hotels worldwide through advanced music technology by Soundtrackyourbrand.
Tipple fans are also in luck. The tablet also features a selection of cocktail masterclass videos for guests looking to recreate their favourite cocktail without leaving the comfort of their hotel room. The room’s Mini Mega Bar offers a unique twist on the classic hotel mini bar, and has all the ingredients for a great night in.
A fresh lick of paint
Each of the property’s 192 rooms, including 28 suites, has had a bold makeover. Designed by renowned architects, Concrete, and kitted out by Kraus Architects, the rooms have benefitted from structural upgrades along with daring new feature walls, refreshed avant-garde furniture and atmospheric lighting.
Think sleek white details, photo-friendly mirrored walls, and party-starting disco balls complete the provocative new look.
This renovation completes the hotel’s full transformation, following the redesign of the hotel’s bar and lounge, The Perception at W London, in 2017 and makeover of the hotel’s luxurious oasis, the AWAY Spa, in 2018.
Jack Irving goes ‘Techorative’
To amplify the re-imagined guest experience, W London has teamed up with daring fashion fantasist, Jack Irving, to create a limited-edition pillow collection.
Best known for his eye- catching designs injected with a shot of engineered technology, Irving has dressed the likes of global superstar Lady Gaga.
Taking inspiration straight from the catwalk and remixing it with the bold attitude of W London, the spiked pillows, available in every guest room, appear muted to the naked eye until they are brought to life through the click of a camera flash. Through the lens, the smart fabric transforms into an iridescent masterpiece.
“It’s amazing to be working with W London for my first interiors collaboration, as the hotel’s unmistakable bold identity is a perfect match for my avant-garde designs,” said Jack Irving.
“When set with the task, I took inspiration from Soho’s creative energy and W London’s irreverent attitude, to create a unique statement piece that unites the hotel fabulous new room design and upgraded functionality.”
For mega fans, guests can jump further into Jack Irving’s imagination through curated in-room experiences from the designer – listen to electric disco tune Strandbar by Todd Terje, whilst ordering his favourite show-stopping cocktail, the ‘Blood Orange Smash’.
