W Hong Kong

By
Nov 21, 2009

W Hong Kong, located in hipster hub Kowloon, deftly mixes whimsy with a darker, more urban sensibility—a yin-yang approach to design that’s true to the brand’s fixation on appearances. Two interior design firms were hired to create the hotel’s 393 rooms, giving a slightly different feel to alternating floors. The rooms by Australian outfit Nicholas Graham + Associates feature a more sober look: darker greens and grays, with a swirling, wood-grain pattern etched in steel on the walls behind the bed. Japanese firm Glamorous, displays a lighter, more playful touch: silhouettes of butterflies on the translucent white walls behind the bed and bathroom mirrors with vine-and-paisley patterns on their white frames. You’ll also want to check out the 836-square-meter Bliss spa or take a dip in the pool on the 76th floor.
