Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. expands its strong presence in Spain with the announcement of its second W Hotel in the country. Slated to open in 2018, W Madrid will be ideally located on Plaza de Canalejas in the epicentre of the city’s thriving restaurant and entertainment district and close to major landmarks in the Spanish cultural and fashion capital.
W Madrid will complement the iconic beachfront W Barcelona which opened to great fanfare in 2009 and continues to wow jetsetters from around the world. W loyalists will revel in being able to experience two energetic Spanish cities within three hours of travel.
W Madrid will feature 141 stylish guestrooms, including 20 suites and one Extreme Wow Suite (the W brand’s interpretation of the Presidential Suite). Guests and locals alike will enjoy the hotel’s buzzing rooftop bar and WET outdoor pool deck, which is sure to become the hottest place to mix, mingle and sip cocktails with stunning views of the Madrid skyline on warm summer nights. Other areas include W Living Room (the W brand’s energetic spin on the hotel lobby), a signature restaurant and FIT®, the ultimate workout facility. An ideal venue for small meetings and events, W Madrid will also offer two ultra-modern studio meeting rooms.
Guests will be treated to the W brand’s iconic Whatever/Whenever® service philosophy that promises whatever they want, whenever they want it. W Madrid’s exclusive W Happenings will showcase what’s new and next in design, fashion and music to stylish hotel guests and savvy locals.
W Madrid will be housed in an imposing 19th century building that was previously operated as a hotel.
Following the successful debuts of W Hotels in Istanbul, Barcelona, St. Petersburg, London, Paris and Verbier, W Amsterdam became the seventh W Hotel in Europe when it opened in October 2015. W Hotels now boasts a worldwide portfolio of 46 properties around the globe and is on track to reach 75 hotels by 2020.
