Review: W Hong Kong | Prince of Travel

Following a stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, which embodied classic opulence, the third and final stay of my 2021 trip to Hong Kong would be the much more vibrant W Hong Kong.

The W Hong Kong first opened its doors in 2008, marking the brand’s debut in the region. As someone who generally admires W properties, I was indeed looking forward to checking it out for myself.

W Hong Kong – Booking

At the time of my stay, I paid just 1,624 HKD ($277 CAD) for a one-night stay. The cash rate was more favourable than redeeming Bonvoy points at this time, as the rates were significantly lower due to the closure of Hong Kong to foreign travellers.

Typically, cash rates at the W Hong Kong fall within the range of 2,600–3,100 HKD ($444–530 CAD), but can occasionally climb upwards of 3,700 HKD ($630 CAD) for a one-night stay.

For a points redemption, you can expect to pay between 53,000–70,000 Bonvoy points per night, with most nights landing in the middle of that range.

Compared to our Points Valuations, which value Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.9 cents per point (CAD), there isn’t a particularly compelling reason to redeem points here unless the cash rates are sky-high.

If you’re heading to W Hong Kong and plan to make a cash booking, be sure to get in touch with a travel advisor who has access to Marriott Luminous. You’ll pay the same as the best available, refundable rate, but you’ll also enjoy extra perks like free breakfast, priority for room upgrades, and more at no additional cost.
