W HOTELS DEBUTS IN ITALY WITH THE OPENING OF W ROME
W Rome, ideally situated near the famous Spanish steps, marks W Hotels’ debut in Italy and boasts 147 stylish, open-plan guestrooms and 15 suites with iconic Roman views.
“W Rome marks the first W Hotel to open in Italy, adding its distinct take on modern, social luxury to the city’s hospitality scene,” said Candice D’ Cruz, Vice President – Luxury Brands, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International. “From unforgettable dining experiences to the thoughtful design rooted in the history and culture of the city, W Rome is a destination where international jet setters and local tastemakers will meet the unexpected.”
Designed by Meyer Davis, the hotel juxtaposes the city’s traditional architecture and cultural heritage with a unique interpretation of Roman design in a way that is captivating, glamorous, and quintessentially W. An eclectic mix of colorful leather furniture meets stone walls representative of the building’s past, whilst reflective surfaces add a modern, contemporary touch. Boundaries are blurred between public and private spaces as surprises reveal themselves throughout the guest experience – including a hidden door in the bathroom leading to the intimate Parlapiano, a secret garden inspired by one of Borromini’s churches featuring traditional Italian stone complete with kissing benches, lush foliage, topiary and water fountains.
With an open-plan living space, the rooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows wrapped in red wine velvet curtains and wooden herringbone-patterned floors that blur into modern marble bathrooms. Fuelled by Rome’s past, present, and future, the compelling interiors inject striking colour blocks and bold graphic prints of burnt orange, dramatic red, and foliage greens into the buildings’ authentic and unmistakable charm.
Located on the ground floor, the hotel’s W Lounge comes alive at night, buzzing with live music, DJ sets, and an innovative cocktail menu showcasing exceptional mixology with infused spirits and unexpected ingredients. The rooftop terrace is home to the WET Deck complete with a plunge pool and Otto Rooftop Bar, a tranquil escape offering panoramic views of Rome paired with cocktails, crudo and pizza.
