When in Rome – Stay at the New W
There is no place quite like Italy and no city quite like Rome,” said Tom Jarrold, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide
The 162-room hotel, spanning two adjacent 19th century palazzos. W Rome is owned by King Street Capital Management, a global alternative investment firm, with development manager Omnam Investment Group and Italian asset management firm Kryalos SGR.
“Layers of ancient history, exceptional food and wine, spectacular art and architecture, and the genuine welcoming attitude from its people – there is no place quite like Italy and no city quite like Rome,” said Tom Jarrold, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide.
Designed by Meyer Davis, the hotel juxtaposes the city’s traditional architecture and cultural heritage with a unique interpretation of Roman design.
Boundaries are blurred between public and private spaces as surprises reveal themselves throughout the guest experience – including a hidden door in the bathroom leading to the intimate Parlapiano, a secret garden inspired by one of Borromini’s churches featuring traditional Italian stone complete with kissing benches, lush foliage, topiary and water fountains.
The 147 stylish guestrooms and 15 suites provide a city apartment feel with many offering private balconies and terraces, a selection of which have iconic views of the city and landmarks such as the Istituto Svizzero. With an open plan living space, the rooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows wrapped in red wine velvet curtains and wooden herringbone patterned floors that blur into modern marble bathrooms.
The Extreme WOW (Presidential) Suite offers an expansive terrace, adding rare and much-sought-after indoor and outdoor living in the bustling city. The suite’s décor sees historical Roman architectural elements mixed with cutting-edge, in-room technology and custom designed modern furniture.
The signature Giano Restaurant introduces guests to a fusion of Sicilian cuisine with Roman culture led by Michelin-starred Ciccio Sultano.
Wellness at W Rome has been curated by Italian athlete Pietro Boselli, with the first FUEL x Petra Studio Gym and personal training programme. From high-intensity sessions to boxing and yoga, Boselli will offer guests and locals high energy workouts unlike anything else in the city.
So, when in Rome check W Rome out.
