W Hotels Worldwide is set to open W Prague in 2020. The hotel will be owned by PPH Evropa s.r.o and will be the first hotel in the Czech Republic for the brand. The W Prague will be located in Wenceslas Square and it will be renovated from the former Grand Europa Hotel. The property is an art nouveau style property and the historic structure will be combined with a modern new building.
“As one of Europe’s most exciting and diverse destinations, Prague is a perfect fit for the iconic W brand and is certain to push new limits for Prague’s vibrant hotel scene when it opens in 2020,” said Sandeep Walia, area vice president - Luxury Brands, Western Europe, Marriott International.
The hotel will include various guestrooms and suites, including an Extreme Wow Suite. Guests will be able to access their rooms with a Keyless entry system, which means they will use their smartphone or Apple watch to open the door. The hotel will also have a rooftop terrace, an indoor WET pool deck, an AWAY spa and more.
Looking ahead, W Hotels plans to add hotels in Madrid and Portugal’s Algarve coast in 2019. A hotel is also debuting in Scotland in 2021.
