W Sydney to Open in 2020

(Marriott International)

W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott International, announced the signing of W Sydney, marking its re-entry to the famous city. Built and developed by Grocon and funded by Greaton Group, W Sydney is slated for a 2020 opening. The new-build hotel will be part of “The Ribbon”, a development designed by the award-winning architect HASSELL that will transform Sydney’s skyline on Darling Harbour. The announcement comes on the heels of W's re-entering of Australia with the opening of W Brisbane, and its previous announcement that it plans to open a hotel in Melbourne, also in 2020.

W Sydney will have 593 guestrooms, suites and serviced apartments. Guests can spend time at the WET DECK, the brand’s pool deck with views of Darling Harbour. A restaurant serving up local flavors as well as two bars, including the brand’s signature Living Room, will round out the hotel’s cocktail and cuisine scene. W Sydney will also be home to the W brand’s signature AWAY Spa, as well as a FIT gym, and approximately 9,956 square feet of event space (including a grand ballroom), which will set the stage for meetings and social occasions.

In addition to the opening of W Brisbane, W Hotels has also recently opened hotels in AmmanPanama and Shanghai. W Hotels noted that the openings in Australia will bring the hotel brand close to its goal of 75 hotels by the end of 2020.
