W Hotels Worldwide has announced plans to introduce the brand to Hungary’s hotel scene with their first property in Budapest. W Budapest, expected to open in 2020, will be located directly across from the State Opera House, on Andrassy Avenue, often referred to as Budapest’s Champs-Elysees.
Set to be housed in the impressive Drechsler Palace, W Budapest will feature 162 guest rooms and suites, decorated in the brand’s contemporary style, as well as one Extreme WOW suite, a contemporary twist on the traditional Presidential Suite.
“W Hotel’s bold and vibrant take on luxury continues to expand into some of the most exciting destinations in Eastern and Central Europe,” said Carlton Ervin, Marriott International’s Chief Development Officer, Europe. “The signing of this landmark hotel in Budapest matches the rising demand of luxury traveller and underpins our commitment to grow our portfolio in the region.”
The brand’s most recent hotel, W Amsterdam, opened in October 2015 as the seventh W Hotel in Europe.
