W Guangzhou

A hip high-rise in Guangzhou
A few blocks from Guangzhou’s Pearl River, the W Guangzhou is the stylish hotel brand’s first foray into mainland China.

Out to wow you at every turn, the lobby takes the five elements of feng shui — fire, earth, metal, water and wood — on a rollercoaster, featuring fire-colored glass paneling, earth-inspired marble floors, an avant-garde bronze sculpture, hand-carved wooden benches and a mesmerizing LED waterfall that’s three stories high. Despite these natural touches, the W Guangzhou is far from rustic.

Smack in the middle of the CBD near all of the convention centers and just a 15-minute drive to the main Guangzhou East train station, the vibrant property is in a great location for striking deals. For those in search of a fashion-forward and energetic hotel amid the city’s many straight-laced business addresses, the W is an obvious choice.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • This hip hotel is the only W location that offers a club lounge — an added luxury to accommodate Guangzhou’s many business travelers.
  • Dining is of utmost importance to the W brand, and the Guangzhou hotel has three restaurants to choose from: The Kitchen Table international buffet, I by Inagiku’s Japanese staples and Yan Yu’s contemporary Cantonese cuisine.
  • With more than 16,000 square-feet, The Away Spa on the 28th floor has plenty of room to relax. Guests can take refuge in the dry sauna, steam room, vitality pool and nine treatment rooms are sprawled across the impressive space.
