W Hotels continues expansion in China

W Hotels Worldwide have opened their second hotel in mainland China. W Beijing - Chang’an, part of the Starwood Hotels & Resorts, has opened its doors, marking the 45th W Hotel worldwide.

Located on Chang’an Avenue, W Beijing - Chang’an consists of 349 stylish and spacious guestrooms and suites, featuring state-of-the art fittings such as a digital tablet that manipulates the room’s lighting and mood, 48” LED TV, and Bluetooth sound system. Suites sport a JBL home theater system and Bose portable speakers.

Additionally, all guestrooms include the signature W bed; sumptuous Bliss bath amenities; well-equipped Mix Bar (the W brand’s reinterpretation of the staid mini bar); and a round bathtub in king bed rooms and suites.

In addition, an Extreme WOW Suite, W Hotels’ take on the traditional Presidential Suite, exemplifies unparalleled living, with a total size of 345 square meters, including a living room and 90 square meters of space for parties; 76” UED Samsung TV in the living room; 2-meter wide circular bed; and Jacuzzi by a ceiling-to-floor window.

In addition, the E-WOW Suite, when combined with three Wonderful rooms, can be cordoned off to become one exclusive and private space.


“The opening of W Beijing – Chang’an is a milestone in the W brand’s dramatic growth around the globe,” said Paul James, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels, St. Regis and Luxury Collection.

“Long on our shortlist of the world’s most dynamic destinations, we are proud to bring W to Beijing, and the hotel will no doubt ‘rock the empire’ as we set a new scene in the Capital for both our global jet-set guests and locals alike.” Added James.

The property also includes a range of dining and drinking experiences including the Living Room at W Beijing, X25, an exclusive lounge at the top of the hotel, and the hotel’s Chinese restaurant YEN includes food culture of northern China’s Canton province, while the Kitchen Table serves casual, home-style fare in a communal table setting.

For business travellers the hotel offers nearly 1,500 square meters of versatile, well-equipped space, including The Great Room of 518 square meters with a ceiling height of 7 meters.

For relaxing moments, the Away Spa, embodying a beehive design, presents a fun-filled escape where guests can enjoy exceptional spa experiences featuring honey-based treatments, among other restorative regimens. Guests can also work out in the FIT state-of-the-art fitness center or have a dip in the WET® heated indoor pool.

W Beijing - Chang’an is the latest addition to Starwood’s growing portfolio of nearly 140 operating hotels in Greater China, with a strong pipeline of more than 130 hotels to come. W is on track to open seven W Hotels within the next five years in China, across major cities, including Changsha, Chengdu, Shanghai, Suzhou, Sanya, and Shenyang. China continues to fuel the growth of W Hotels in Asia Pacific, which will soon see W Hotels opening in Brisbane, Australia; Jakarta, Indonesia; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Gurgaon, Noida, India and Phuket, Thailand.
