W Hotels Worldwide is now a brand of Marriott International.
“We are delighted to be working with our esteemed partners at Platinum Estates Limited to bring the iconic W brand to Marbella,” said Carlton Ervin, chief development officer, Europe, Marriott International. “The signing of the third W Hotel in Spain underlines the continued demand for this iconic luxury lifestyle brand in key European travel destinations. This is also our third hotel project with Platinum Estates Limited and follows the signings of W Madrid and Aloft Madrid Gran Via, which will both open in 2019.”
With the opening of W Marbella in 2021, Spain will be the only country in Europe with three W Hotels. The property will join W Barcelona, which opened in 2009, and W Madrid, slated to open in 2019. W Marbella will be the fourth W Escape in Europe.
