W Hotels launch in mainland China with W Guangzhou
With an iconic architectural building set on the ancient Pearl River, W Guangzhou brings a new interpretation of modern luxury to China, seamlessly blending the city’s storied traditions with the W brand’s dynamic and future-forward designs. The 44th W Hotel globally, W Guangzhou marks a rapid Asian expansion for the W brand, which has plans to more than double its current footprint of nine hotels to nearly 20 over the next five years.
W Guangzhou is situated in the city’s bustling Pearl River New Town District, a rapidly evolving center of entertainment, commerce and design. The design of W Guangzhou uniquely juxtaposes the historic capital city’s modern urban tapestry through its cutting-edge architecture and modern interiors. The exterior, defined by sleek black glass, has been envisioned by renowned architect Rocco Yim, who has developed some of China’s most recognizable and iconic projects, including Guangzhou’s Guangdong Museum. A stunning entrance features a 19-meter tall “Luminous Water Wall” by WETDesign, evocative of Impressionist paintings with a liquid mosaic of light, lines and color.
W Guangzhou’s 317 guest rooms and suites feature the first motion sensor capability in the city, the signature W Bed, Munchie Box stocked with exclusive amenities, 46” LED HD TV, state-of-the-art surround sound system, high-speed Wi-Fi, and MP3 player plug-and-play device. All bathrooms are complete with Bliss® amenities to ensure a relaxing experience after a day of shopping or a night out on the town.
