UK: Marriott’s first W hotel in Scotland is set to open this November in Edinburgh, seven years after the hotel was first revealed.
The 244-room hotel was first announced when Starwood managed the W Hotels brand before merging with Marriott. It is located within the St James Quarter in the east end of Edinburgh.
The hotel’s interiors have been designed by London-based practice Jestico + Whiles. Amenities include a rooftop restaurant operated by SUSHISAMBA, Joao’s Place cocktail bar, the W Lounge, a gym and a spa, and event spaces.
It marks the second W Hotels property in the UK, joining W London which opened in 2011.
Agnieszka Rog-Skrzyniarz, VP luxury brands, Europe, Marriott International said: “With an unrivalled wealth of culture and vibrant arts scene, Edinburgh matches W Hotels legacy of embracing local creativity and talent. This property is set to be a stand-out destination hotel unlike anything else in the city, igniting guest’s curiosity and attracting locals drawn to the unique energy of the W brand.”
Ken Millar, general manager, W Edinburgh, said: “W Edinburgh does more than put you at the centre of Scotland’s historic and culturally rich capital city – it immerses you in the spirit of the festival capital of the world. We can’t wait to introduce our new, luxury offering to guests and locals alike as we open the hotel for bookings.”
