W Hotels to make Dutch debut


Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. reports it will debut its W Hotels brand in the Netherlands with the new W Amsterdam, scheduled to open in Autumn 2015.

Owned by STAG Europe (Grafenau) BV, the hotel will be located on the prestigious Dam Square in the heart of Amsterdam, behind the Royal Palace and just steps from the city’s iconic canal district with its vibrant restaurants, bars and nightlife scene.

W Amsterdam will provide an integrated contemporary lifestyle experience with 169 stylish guestrooms, including 10 suites and one Extreme Wow Suite (the W brand’s interpretation of the Presidential Suite). Upon entering the hotel, guests will be elevated directly to the rooftop, where they can check-in and enjoy a cocktail in the W Living Room (W’s take on the staid hotel lobby where guests can mix and mingle).

W Amsterdam will also offer 480 square metres of meeting and event space, including two Great Rooms and two smaller meeting rooms. In addition, W Amsterdam will boast an FIT state-of-the-art fitness centre and WIRED 24-hour business centre.
