Starwood to open W Hotel in Jaffa

Israel: Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide is to build a hotel and residential complex in the Old City of Jaffa, after signing a contract with the landowner, RFR Holdings.

The property will be the company’s first W Hotel in Israel and will be built in a converted four-floor building from 1879, which was originally used as the French Hospital. As well as the conversion, Starwood will also build a six-floor hotel and apartment building. The project will have a total of 20,000 square metres of built-up space: 125 hotel rooms, 38 luxury apartments, and commercial space for the hotel’s use.

British architect John Pawson will design the W Tel Aviv hotel, together with Israeli architect Rami Gil, who designed the nearby Jaffa Port.

Construction is due to begin in the spring of 2015.
