Ready to be Wowed in China? We hear W Hotels Worldwide has debuted its first W hotel in Mainland China. The W Guangzhou opened earlier this month on the Pearl River, with 317 guest rooms and suites.

The entry into the hotel starts off with a bang. A 62-foot "Luminous Water Wall" by WETDesign greets guests as they enter. 

Guest rooms range from Spectacular to WOW in seven different categories. All rooms have 46-inch LED HD TVs, sound systems, high-speed Wi-Fi and MP3 player plug-ins.
