W Hotels Worldwirde Debuts in Taiwan with Opening of Taipei W With Panoramic Views of the Iconic 101 Tower, W Taipei Fuses the City’s Natural Surroundings with Its Urban Core.
W Hotels Worldwide today opens the doors of its 39th hotel globally, W Taipei, which is located in the buzzing central business district of Xinyi. The 405-room hotel has been designed by renowned architects G.A. Design International Ltd. of London and is encased in radiant glass. Rising 31 floors, W Taipei is the only hotel in the city with a panoramic vista of the iconic 101 Tower, one of the world’s tallest buildings. Today’s opening of W Taipei coincides with the opening of W London - Leicester Square, which will be the W brand’s 40th hotel globally.
“W Hotels Designer of the Future “ – interacts with guests as they enter the building, by changing shape, look and feel in sync with its surroundings.”
“W Taipei marks an important step in the global expansion of the W brand, in particular in Mainland China and the Taiwan region,” said Eva Ziegler, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide and Le Méridien. “W Taipei is sure to redefine the meaning of ‘hotel’ in Taipei and is well equipped to electrify the city.”
“We are thrilled with the opening of W Taipei today,” commented Qian Jin, Senior Vice President of Operations, China & Taiwan, Starwood Hotels & Resorts. “W Taipei is the ultimate urban getaway in the middle of one of Asia’s hippest and most cosmopolitan cities. Without a doubt, W Taipei will be the venue of choice for discerning and style-conscious trendsetters – particularly those inspired by W brand’s unique mix of forward looking design and innovative style."
Taipei Hotel Design Redefined
Upon arriving at W Taipei, guests will marvel at “The Chain” - made of the strongest stainless steel with a mirror finish – that symbolically anchors the energy of the W Taipei into the ground and is juxtaposed with a gigantic green wall filled with plants organically grown throughout Taiwan. W Taipei showcases a cutting-edge collection of design installations that bring to life the hotel’s design concept of “nature electrified.” For instance, an interactive light installation – entitled “To Light You Fade” created by rAndom International, a “W Hotels Designer of the Future “ – interacts with guests as they enter the building, by changing shape, look and feel in sync with its surroundings.
Sip, Mix and Indulge at W Taipei’s Bars and Restaurants
Taiwan’s newest scene, W Taipei will feature an eclectic assortment of signature restaurants and lounges. The Kitchen Table tantalizes with a broad menu of spicy and aromatic tandoor dishes, wood-fired pizzas, stylish salads, succulent seafood and grill dishes. Outside on the WET pool sky deck, al fresco dining means an urban barbecue overlooking Taipei’s Technicolor city lights. On the 31st floor, the W brand’s Cantonese restaurant, Yen, features a sleek bar for sipping as well as delicate dim sum, fresh seafood, signature soups, delicious desserts -- and five private dining rooms for more intimate affairs. As the consulting chef of Yen, creative Chef Jereme Leung brings his innovative style of cooking and unique approach to contemporary Chinese cuisine.

In the heart of the dynamic Xinyi District, Taipei’s commercial and business center, W Taipei taps into the city’s intoxicating 24/7 energy. As the capital of the Republic of China, Taipei’s days are defined by international business meetings at nearby corporate headquarters and retail therapy at surrounding shops. But as the sun goes down, the city’s signature neon lights illuminate destination bars, clubs, and nocturnal hotspots.
Keeping watch over the chaos, the 89th floor observatory of Taipei 101—the world’s second-tallest skyscraper---offers an iconic perspective of the electric metropolis, surrounding mountains, and entire Taipei Basin. Back on land, the Longshan Temple provides a grounding refuge of Buddhist reflection while the Museum of Contemporary Art and National Palace Museum, home to the world’s largest collection of Chinese artifacts, reveal the capital’s culture. For an escape from the hustle and bustle, visit the tranquil Taipei Botanical Gardens or Yanmingshan National Park, where soothing hot springs meet emerald vistas.
Day in and day out, shopping options abound, among them the Holiday Jade Market, one of Asia’s largest markets for jade and semi-precious stones, and the Shilin Night Market, where spicy native tastes mingle with exotic goods. In the old city, narrow streets divulge local specialties and unbeatable bargains. On the eastside, a bevy of malls satisfy every obsession. Stop by Ximeding for the latest in avant-garde fashion or discover a different type of cutting-edge style at Core Pacific City, a golf ball-shaped shopping center.
