The W Taipei experience begins as soon as you step into the hotel's welcome lobby. The first thing will catch your attention would be the state-of-the-art interactive OLED screen mounted on the wall. The display is controlled by an intuitive software which reacts to movements detected by its optical sensors. Replacing a chandelier is a sculpture of mirrored plastic and bamboo sheet hanging from the ceiling like a lightning which runs from one end of the lobby to the other.
