W Taipei

Jan 21, 2012

THE SPLASHY W TAIPEI BLENDS the feel of a relaxing resort with a smooth, urban vibe. Guests can wind down at the 25-meter-long pool and poolside Wet Bar, or rub elbows with the city’s power brokers at Yen, the top-floor Cantonese restaurant with views onto Taipei 101. The 405 spacious rooms feature plush beds, energetic green and orange accents, sturdy business desks, sofas perched next to floor-to-ceiling windows, Japanese toilets, spacious bathtubs, iPod docks and Bose stereos. In step with the W brand, whimsical art pieces punctuate the hotel, including flying metal shards in the lobby by Japanese artist Sawada.
