W Taipei to open later this year

20 May 2010

Starwood Hotels and Resorts has confirmed that its latest property in Taiwan, the W Taipei hotel, will open later this year in the city’s Central Business District of Xinyi.

The 405-room property is designed to appeal to a younger generation of business travellers, since the W is positioned by Starwood as a chic, stylish and informal brand but with an emphasis on modern technology.

Xinyi is both a major business hub and nightlife district and the choice of location perfectly suits the W identity, according to Starwood.
Eva Ziegler, global brand leader, W Hotels Worldwide and Le Méridien, said: “W Taipei will offer a contemporary take on design, fashion and music in the heart of one of the city’s most vibrant districts, bringing an innovative and distinctive experience to the hotel market in Taipei.”

W Taipei guestrooms start from 43sqm to a 365sqm Extreme Wow Suite. There are two contemporary restaurants, one destination bar and a W lounge.

For leisure facilities, there is a rooftop WET outdoor pool deck and poolside bar, a modern fitness centre, SWEAT, and a retail outlet.

To cater to international business people and groups, the W Taipei, has a 24-hour, full-service WIRED business centre, more than 2,800sqm of meeting and event space.
