Travel Review: W Guangzhou

WOW COMES TO GUANGZHOU. Guangzhou is one of China’s vibrant cities, with a fantastic cultural scene that is home to some of the best Chinese opera in the country.

The latest addition to this up-and-coming cosmopolitan city is the W Guangzhou (26 Xian Cun Road, Pearl River New Town, Tianhe District, Guangzhou, Guangdong; +86 20 6628 6628; starwoodhotels. com). The 317 room property is the very first W hotel to open in mainland China, and it brings with it the luxury and over-the-top opulence the brand is well-known for. The building exterior features sleek and futuristic architecture courtesy of Hong Kong-based Rocco Design. Inside, designs dreamed by renowned interior specialists from New York’s Yabu Pushelberg and Kuala Lumpur’s Design Wilkes, among others, have been brought into reality, include a cereal bowl shaped cigar lounge and a glossy three-storey glass and mirrors nightclub which is set to host buzzing parties featuring W’s cadre of young DJ and musical talents, including Hong Kong’s Angus Wong and Miss Yellow.
