W London Leicester Square

Stylish and striking 192-room hotel right on Leicester Square.

10 Wardour Street, London, W1D 6QF

Tube: Piccadilly Circus Station , Leicester Square Station

 
 

On the site of what used to be the Swiss Centre the W London - Leicester Square has given Leicester Square a landmark building to be proud of (at last). Architects Jestico Whiles have given the building a "playful frosted fašade" - i.e. making use of lots of glass - which allows the building fašade to change under coloured lights while also making maximum use of natural daylight in the bedrooms. The mixed-use building includes a ten-floor, 192-room hotel as well as a spa and ten penthouse apartments, two storeys of retail space and a casino and restaurants on two basement levels. Well known worldwide, the W hotel brand is a stylish, modern concept and their first London hotel includes signature W trademarks like the W Living Room concept, where guests are invited to "mix, mingle and relax in a stylish social atmosphere". Service is at the heart of their philosophy, exemplified by their Whatever/Whenever service, a 24-hour concierge that grants your every wish - from box seats at a Premier League game to a private shopping excursion at Harrods. "Whatever you want. Whenever you want it (as long as it's legal!)" goes the motto.

 
 
 

W Lounge & Afternoon Tea

The lobby level Lounge bar is a great place for people watching.

The lobby level Lounge bar at W London is a great place to people watch over a cocktail. It's also where they serve British Afternoon Tea but with a Rock 'N' Roll twist. W Rock Tea, available in the W Lounge between 2pm and 5pm daily, celebrates the rich music heritage of Soho - the Rolling Stones recorded their first album at Regent Sound studio while The Beatles, David Bowie and Elton John recorded some of their biggest hits at nearby Trident Studios. In homage to them, and in keeping with the cool vibe of the hotel, W's Rock Tea comes on a cake stand made of vinyl records. There's more rock n roll with dishes named after famous albums and songs including Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, London's Burning by The Clash, the Rolling Stone's Sticky Fingers, Aerosmith's Sweet Emotion, Jimi Hendrick's Purple Haze, Cherrybomb by The Runaways and a dessert selection inspired by Fleetwood Mac's Go Your Own Way.

Internationally renowned and three Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten brings an East Asian-inspired restaurant concept to London's new W London hotel in Leicester Square. Spice Market is the sister restaurant to Vongerichten's iconic New York version of the same title and will enchant diners with a menu full of bold and adventurous Asian flavours. Amongst the tantalising dishes are Spiced Chicken Samosa with Coriander Yoghurt and Cod with Mayalsian Chilli Sauce and Thai Basil. And if that doesn't get your taste buds tingling, then the speciality cocktails, including Ginger Margarita, Pineapple Mojito and Lychee Raspberry Bellini, are on hand to provide the perfect accompaniment to your meal. Set over two floors, Spice Market's striking interiors with shades of gold, copper and chrome will offer visitors a chance to unwind in a modern, lavish setting, fully in keeping with the contemporary architecture of the W London.

 
 
 

Wyld Bar

Party where Primal Scream chose to host their 20th anniversary party.

In typical W Hotel style, the Wyld Bar on the first floor of the Leicester Square hotel is very cool. Drop in for after work drinks or dance under an oversized disco ball while DJs spin the tunes late into the night, Wednesday to Sunday. One of two bars at the W hotel, a 'party hotel' perfectly pitched at the under 40s, Wyld feels "like a VIP room at a Miami nightclub" (Metro). And they do a mean (if pricey) cocktail too with an impressive range of premium tequilas. Wyld Bar was the place Primal Scream chose to host their 20th anniversary party with guests including Jade Jagger, Philip Treacy, Jarvis Cocker, and Kate Moss. More recently the NME Awards after party was hosted here with Jack Whitehall, Jade Williams and Jamie Winstone all partying under the giant mirrorball.

On the 6th floor of the W London the AWAY Spa certainly takes you away from the manic pace of life in Leicester Square outside. Hydraulic treatment beds, changeable mood lighting and the "dream-like lounge area" is "reminiscent of a scene from Sex and the City" (Harper's Bazaar). Among the treatments and packages to choose from, the spa's signature AWAY facial with REN products is a devinely relaxing experience. The spa also has a team of celebrity therapists attached including a shiatsu facialist, hair styling and make up, they even have a tanning artist(!) and eyelash extensions specialist (who knew?). The adjacent gym is fitted out with state-of-the-art Technogym equipment, an array of treadmills, elliptical machines and stationary bikes mounted with LCD TVs, weight machines, free weights, yoga mats, balance balls, jump ropes and punching bags. And there's a team of hot shot celebrity trainers if you want to give your fitness regime some focus. Even if you're not a hotel guest you can sign up for membership of the gym which includes full use of steam and sauna rooms and you get a complimentary AWAY Spa treatment each month.
