Tantalizing Taipei: W Hotels Opens Newest Property

W Hotels is feeling the love this Valentine's Day with the debut of its newest Asia property, W Taipei.

The W Taipei
, designed by renowned architects G.A. Design International Ltd. of London is encased in radiant glass and offers 405 rooms spread over 31 floors.

We hear that guest rooms overlook the Yangmingshan mountain range and are equipped with balconies. We're loving the style, which is true W (think warm-colored tones, burnished wood and floral carpeting, accented with subtle lighting from Chinese lantern boxes).

All rooms feature high speed wireless, flat screen televisions, Bose 2.1 sound systems, and a W Taipei's signature W Zodiac Animal.

When it's time to wine and dine, guests can choose from an assortment of restaurants and lounges. The Kitchen Table serves up spicy tandoor dishes, wood-fired pizzas, salads and seafood.

The WET pool sky deck is tops for al fresco dining (and we hear the views are pretty tasty, themselves). Here dine on barbecue goodies. On the 31st floor, check out the W's Cantonese restaurant, Yen, which offers dim sum, seafood, signature sou[s and desserts. Intimate touch: There are five private dining rooms at Yen.
