    Just stayed at the W Hoboken (which was terrific), and last month was at the W Istanbul (also terrific)...but neither property had an in-room coffee maker. Is this the norm for W Hotels? My heart doesn't begin to beat without coffee, and I hate to spend $20+ on room service just to get my eyes open!

    Some, such as W Hong Kong, have very nice coffee makers in all rooms. In all other W properties that I've tried, IME a coffee maker (with coffee supplies at no charge) is available by request. (I call whatever whenever as soon as I get to my room.) A few, such as W Minneapolis at the Foshoy and maybe W on Union Square in NYC (but not the W New York on Lex), offer free coffee in the lobby during morning hours.

    I always request one (after checking whether there is one in the room) while checking in.

    The only W I have stayed at is in Taipei, and it had a very nice French Press.

    W Doha beats them all with a Nespresso machine and your choice of Intensity pellets

    You should be able to request one when making the rez.
