Marriott Int. to open stylish W hotel in Rome in 2021
Rome – 5 October 2017 –
Marriott International announced plans to open a W hotel in Rome in 2021. The hotel will feature 159 stylish guest rooms and suites, including a decadent ‚Extreme WOW suite‘ (the brands take on the traditional Presidential Suite).
On its expansive rooftop, W Rome will feature a signature destination bar where style-savvy guests and local trendsetters can take in sweeping cityscape views and enjoy the brand’s playful approach to cocktail culture. Social spaces at W Rome include the W Living Room (the W brand’s spin on the hotel lobby) along with two vibrant restaurants and over 120 square meters of ultra-modern event space.
W Rome will span two adjacent 19th-century properties on Via Liguria. Originally intended for residential use, the commanding buildings previously operated as a hotel, as well as offices for government ministries and private companies. The structures will be carefully renovated and re-imagined to refresh the historic elements while infusing the W brand’s bold and inspiring design philosophy.
Ten new W hotels are planned in Europe, with the arrival of W Tel Aviv in early 2018, the opening of W Hotels in Madrid, Belgrade and Portugal’s stunning Algarve coast in 2019, followed by Prague and Budapest in 2020. In addition to Rome, W Hotels is also slated to debut in Marbella and Edinburgh in 2021. W Hotels boasts a worldwide portfolio of more than 50 properties and is on track to reach 75 hotels by 2020.
