The W Taipei, located in central business district of Xinyi, is a 405-room hotel designed by GA Design International.

It features a panoramic vista of the 101 Tower, one of the world’s tallest buildings, and a restaurant called The Kitchen Table, which serves curry, pizza and seafood dishes.  

The opening of W Taipei today coincides with the Valentine's Day opening of W London, the W brand’s 40th hotel opening.  

The 192-room Leicester Square hotel, located in the midst of a £20m local regeneration area, was revealed to C&IT during a hard hat tour last November. It will feature a 39-seat screening room equipped for 3D and digital viewing.

The bedrooms are decorated with Union Jack detailing and oversized dining tables.

There are four event spaces, including a 'modern gentleman's club' space holding up to 180 people and featuring glitter balls and slanted bookshelves.

There is also a private gym called Sweat.
