W Xi'an

W Hotel Xi'an China

W Xi'an (西安W酒店) is a five-star luxury hotel located in the Qujiang New District of Xi'an, the capital of Northwest China's Shaanxi province. W Xi'an opened in August 2018, making it the newest hotel in Xi'an and the sixth W Hotels property in China. With a total of 385 guestrooms and suites, W Xi'an is currently the largest W Hotel in the Asia Pacific region, and perhaps one of the most iconic W Hotels around the world.

Arriving guests are welcomed with a grand entrance framed by giant LED screens. The futuristic display makes you feel you are stepping into the future as you walk your way into the Living Room. I haven't seen a hotel lobby big as this one, and the view inside the 17 meter high Living Room is simply jaw-dropping, so futuristic.

The centerpiece of the Living Room is definitely the giant installation of curved glasses suspended from the ceiling. The curved glasses create swirls similar to the graceful swirls created by the silk ribbons used in Chinese ribbon dance.

Responsible for the interior design of W Xi'an's public spaces, guestrooms, and F&B outlets is the Hong Kong-based AB Concept, the same design studio behind the very successful W Bali - Seminyak and some of the dining outlets of W Suzhou. AB Concept is currently working on the interior design of W Algarve (Portugal) which is set to become the largest W Hotel in Europe.

The overall design concept of W Xi'an is consistent with the modern luxury lifestyle brand of W Hotels which appeals to the young, digital-savvy and jet-setting leisure and business travelers, yet it is deeply inspired by local history and culture of Xi'an. W Xi'an perfectly exemplifies the perfect harmony of western and eastern design elements.

Check-in was effortless. Because my room was made directly via Marriott, my reservation was easily located by the reception at Welcome Desk. While the standard check-in time at W Xi'an is at 3:00pm, I was able to check-in at 1:00pm. Subject to room availability, early check-in can be accommodated. In case early check-in is not possible, you can leave your luggage with the concierge while you hang-out at the Living Room.

All the facilities needed by guests to keep physically fit during their stay are located at the basement level of W Xi'an. Being the largest W Hotels in Asia Pacific, W Xi'an deserves an equally large fitness center.

This is, so far, the largest and most stylish FIT Gym I have been to. There's plenty of work-out machines and equipment inside the gym. There is even a spacious wellness bar where guests can re-hydrate or cool-down after working-out. FIT Gym is open 24 hours daily.

With heated water, guests staying at W Xi'an can enjoy the indoor WET Swimming Pool at any day of the year. It was winter when I visited Xi'an and both the indoor and water temperature were kept to a comfortable level for swimming.

AWAY Spa at W Hotel Xi'an China

Checked-in and non-stay guests can indulge in a relaxing and rejuvenating massage at AWAY Spa, the signature spa of W Hotels. Guests can choose among full body massages, body treatments and facial care. AWAY Spa has five treatments rooms, including a couple's room with its own deep soaking bubble bath.





It's difficult not to fall in love with W Xi'an. Its sheer size is already overwhelming and I was equally impressed with how they seamlessly scaled up to this size without compromising the level of customer service and consistency of the guest experience. Above everything else, it is the design of the property which will leave a lasting impression in me. A visit to Xi'an will never be the same without staying at W Xi'an.
