For many hotel projects, the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in unavoidable delays. Not for the W Rome, which we first heard about in 2017 and is impressively on track to open as the W Hotels brand’s debut property in Italy in Q3 this year. Editor Hamish Kilburn writes…
2021 is proving to be a significant year for the W Hotels brand, with debuts in Japan and Portugal, while its sister brand Moxy has recently opened Moxy South Beach in Miami and is expecting to arrive in Lisbon in the coming weeks. With the lifestyle brands getting geared up to be ready to welcome the influx of modern travellers once the floodgates of international travel opens once more, one of the most highly anticipated openings from W Hotels this year will land in Rome.
W Rome, which is slated to open in Q3 of this year – the same predicted opening date that was predicted back in 2017 when plans for the 162-key hotel were released – is ideally situated near the famous Spanish steps and fashionable boutiques of Via Condotti. Spanning two adjacent 19th century properties on Via Liguria, the hotel will offer dynamic guestrooms and suites and one of the very few rooftop bars that will boast unmatched views across the city.
Foodies rejoice, the hotel will see unrivalled culinary offerings spearheaded by Michelin-starred chef Ciccio Sultano.
The hotel brand is being incredibly tight-lipped about this particular opening, with only one rendering that has been released. Although there’s little information regarding the hotel and its interior design details, rest assured that we will be the first to publish more when we are able to.
