Iconic W Barcelona announces multi-million euro room renovation
W Hotels Worldwide, now part of Marriott International (NASDAQ: MAR), today announced the transformation of its 473 guest rooms and suites. The cutting-edge new design is inspired by the hotel’s 24/7 energy and privileged location on the shores of the buzzing Barceloneta. W Hotel’s award-winning in-house design team has partnered with London-based design studio Bowler James Brindley to reimagine the hotel.
Since W Barcelona opened its doors in 2009, it has been one of the most distinctive landmarks along the Barcelona coast. Famed for its iconic sail-shaped building and unprecedented sea views, W Barcelona continues to disrupt and redefine the Barcelona hospitality scene. Regularly hosting fashion events, product launches and high profile guests, the hotel has made a bold impression on both locals and international jetsetters alike.
“W Barcelona plays an integral role in the city’s dynamic hospitality scene. It broke the mold of traditional luxury hotels when it opened in 2009 and continues to reinvent itself in order to fuel guests’ lust for life.” said Richard Brekelmans, General Manager, W Barcelona. “I’m confident that the transformation of the guest rooms will ensure that W Barcelona retains its position at the forefront of the city’s luxury hotel scene for many years to come.”
