W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott International, Inc., announced the signing of the brand’s first hotel in Brazil. W São Paulo is slated to join this year’s lineup of W openings in the region, including W Panama (opened as of February 2018) and W Costa Rica (opening in late 2018).
Designed by Nini Andrade Silva and the W brand’s design team, W São Paulo will have 179 guestrooms, including two WOW Suites and one Extreme WOW Suite, as well as two restaurants. We're excited for the rooftop dining with views of the city; there will also be a Living Room (lobby) bar. W São Paulo will also include a FIT center and WET Deck pool. Event facilities have approximately 1,600 square feet of meeting space.
W Hotels says the property will juxtapose the modernist traditions of the Brazilian architects by implementing a tropical landscape. To note: There will be ground floor gardens and meandering paths, as well as a rooftop infinity-edge pool, intended to honor the local culture.
The property will be two blocks away from JK Iguatemi, one of the city’s upscale shopping areas with shops and dining venues. W São Paulo will be surrounded by a mix of high-end residential towers, nightlife and entertainment. The hotel will be approximately three miles from the Congonhas Airport and 15 miles from Guarulhos International Airport.
The opening of W São Paulo will mark the seventh W hotel in the Caribbean and Latin America region alongside W Santiago, W Mexico City, W Costa Rica, W Panama, W Colombia and W Punta de Mita.
