The Ultimate Valentine’s Day Experience At The W London

Where? London

Exactly? The W London hotel in Leicester Square

Why?  I was super lucky to be invited to the W London to experience the ultimate romantic weekend getaway (perfect for Valentine’s day). They invited both me and my boyfriend Charlie to stay in the incredible WOW suite for the night and sample the delicious culinary dishes at the restaurant too for a romantic dinner.

Located in the heart of central London overlooking buzzing Leicester Square, our room had a view right over the garden and central square, so we could see all the tourists, street performers and a film premier going on outside at the Odeon cinema. 

I’ve lived in London for over 15 years and I loved the fact that I was staying in a room in the middle of my city and really enjoying feeling like a tourist here. outside view of the w hotel

Literally from the minute you walk into the Hotel you can tell this is going to be a swanky affair, even though its only 2pm in the afternoon, I feel like I’m entering a trendy night club.

The rooms are decadently decorated in a sexy, clubby and modern style. Slick interiors filled with art work, installations, coloured lights and OTT modular furnishings, all accompanied with the chilled beats of Ibizan house music. Everything about the W London is seductive and enticing. The perfect setting for a sexy Valentine’s mini-break.

We checked in and were given one of the fabulous Wow Suites with the view overlooking Leicester Square. With speakers, wide screen TV, great wifi, a mini bar fit for a party and the comfiest beds imaginable, oh and did I mention the incredibly huge bathrooms, almost as big as the bedroom and living room. These rooms are named Wow for a reason. I literally walked in and said Wow!

Here’s me having a cup of tea in an oversized cup and saucer that was a piece of art work in the living room. Did I mention the interiors were eclectic! How very Lady Gaga!

Dinner at Perceptions

Followed by dinner at the restaurant. W London has a roster of emerging and established chefs so the menu is always different for returning guests. The night we visited the restaurant was hosted by Australian chef Magnus Reid whose delicious menu consisted of tapas style plates which were brimming with flavour. His style is a mix of Australian meets modern European specialities.

Oh and I’m not eating popcorn pre dinner, that was the glass for Charlie’s whisky cocktail. How quirky.

After dinner head to the in-house cinema for a romantic movie or opt for a night cap by the roaring fires in the trendy glass cylinders at the bar.
