Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide will debut the W Hotels brand in Shenyang, a Northeast China province.
Scheduled to open in 2019, W Shenyang will be located along Qingnian Avenue, known as the city’s Golden Corridor, which comprises the central business district, central administration district and central cultural district.
W Hotels is slated to open 12 new properties in the Asia Pacific region by 2019 with more than half those hotels planned for China, including new flagships in Beijing and Shanghai as well as Suzhou, Changsha and Chengdu.
Shenyang served as the national capital city of China for more than two decades in the 17th century before the Manchu reign moved west to Beijing in 1644. Leaving behind the palaces and tombs of early rulers, these relics have since become popular tourist attractions, such as Shenyang Botanical Gardens and Mukden Palace, amongst others. Shenyang has historically been a titan of heavy industries, and in recent years, the city has seen greater contributions from tertiary industries and boasts the most robust consumption of luxury goods in Northeast China. The fast economic growth of the city as well as the irreplaceable city center location is ideal for the debut of W.
W Shenyang will offer an integrated contemporary lifestyle experience, offering 280 stylish guestrooms, including 30 suites and an Extreme Wow Suite (the W brand’s reinterpretation of the traditional Presidential Suite). It will also feature more than 26,000 square feet of ultra-modern meeting and event space as well as 24-hour, WIRED® business center, spa, FIT® state-of-the-art workout facility, WET® indoor heated swimming pool, and W Hotels The Store. In addition, the hotel will offer four unique restaurants and bars, including an all-day dining restaurant, innovative Chinese restaurant, specialty restaurant, and the striking Living Room Bar.
