W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio, has made its debut in Italy with the much-anticipated opening of W Rome. Primely located on Via Liguria next to the Spanish Steps, the hotel is owned by King Street Capital Management, a global alternative investment firm, with development manager Omnam Investment Group and Italian asset management firm Kryalos SGR.
“Layers of ancient history, exceptional food and wine, spectacular art and architecture, and the genuine welcoming attitude from its people – there is no place quite like Italy and no city quite like Rome. It is this Italian zest for life that pairs so well with the inspiring energy of the W Hotels experience. W Rome brings together unexpected design, inviting social spaces and the extraordinary talents of chefs Ciccio Sultano and Fabrizio Fiorani to create a refreshing and highly-experiential lens for modern luxury,” said Tom Jarrold, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide.
The 147 stylish guestrooms and 15 suites provide a city apartment feel with many offering private balconies and terraces, a selection of which have iconic views of the city and landmarks such as the Istituto Svizzero. 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. The Extreme WOW (Presidential) Suite offers an expansive terrace, adding rare and much-sought-after indoor and outdoor living in the bustling city. The suite’s décor sees historical Roman architectural elements mixed with cutting-edge, in-room technology and custom designed modern furniture.
