W Hotels to develop W Rome for Italy debut
W Hotels Worldwide plans to open the W Rome in 2021, marking the first time that the W brand will land in Italy. W Rome will be developed in the Via Veneto neighborhood by Omnam Group through a real estate fund managed by Kryalos SGR.
W Rome will be located near the Spanish Steps and the boutiques of Via Condotti, and the property will have 159 guestrooms and suites across two 19th century properties on Via Liguria. Originally intended for residential use, the buildings previously operated as a hotel and offices for government ministries and private companies. The structures will be renovated and rebranded under the W brand while retaining its historic architecture.
