W Prague set to take brand into Czech Republic in 2020
W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott International, has announced it will open W Prague in 2020.
Owned by PPH Evropa, W Prague marks the brand’s debut into the Czech Republic, and will be located on Wenceslas Square in the heart of the buzzing capital city.
The hotel will be a renovation of the former Grand Europa Hotel, a radical art nouveau style property that pushed boundaries when it originally opened in 1905, and will do so again with the W brand’s progressive design and innovative spirit.
The historic structure will be combined with a modern new building to create a stunning blend of old world glamour and bold, contemporary design.
“As one of Europe’s most exciting and diverse destinations, Prague is a perfect fit for the iconic W brand and is certain to push new limits for Prague’s vibrant hotel scene when it opens in 2020,” said Sandeep Walia, area vice president – luxury brands, Western Europe, Marriott International.
“We are pleased to be partnering with PPH Evropa and Prague Prime Homes Management, and we share their confidence that this hotel will bring a new social scene to an already pulsing global city.”
Restored historical elements of the former Grand Hotel Europa will set the stage for W’s bold and vibrant design, complemented by a stunning new oval-shaped extension.
W Prague will feature a glamorous rooftop bar and an outdoor terrace, the perfect location for style-savvy locals and guests to enjoy sweeping cityscape views and a fabulous cocktail and culinary experience.
The hotel features the W Living Room, the brand’s energetic spin on the hotel lobby, along with several chic restaurants and 350 square meters of ultra-modern event space.
