Coming to town: W Hotel
November 7, 2014
Recently Starwood Hotels & Resorts announced that they are going to bring hotel brand W to Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The (169 room) hotel will open in September 2015 and is owned by STAG Europe (Grafenau). The hotel boasts an excellent location as it’s situated right behind Dam Square and the Royal Palace.
Michael Wale, president of Starwood Hotels & Resorts for Europe, Africa and the Middle East, comments: ‘The vibrancy and energy of Amsterdam combined with its strong cultural offering makes the perfect backdrop for the W brand, which will bring a new style of modern luxury to the Dutch hotel scene.’
The Amsterdam W Hotel will feature 169 guest rooms, including ten suites and one “Extreme Wow Suite”, the W brand’s version of the presidential suite. Turning traditional hotel models upside down, upon entering the hotel, guests will go directly to the rooftop, where they can check-in and enjoy a cocktail in the W Living Room, a reinterpretation of the hotel lobby.
Meeting & events
The hotel will also incorporate four ultra-modern meeting and event spaces (totalling 480 m2), a fitness centre and a 24-hour business centre.
