This morning Starwood Hotels & Resorts announced plans to open the W Los Angeles Downtown in early 2019. “The time is right for a W Hotel in the heart of Downtown LA,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. ““From tech and nightlife to entertainment and a fresh foodie scene, downtown Los Angeles has been undergoing a rapid revitalization, and we’re excited to fuel this fire by providing a bold, modern and unique lifestyle experience at the upcoming W Los Angeles Downtown.”
The W Hotel will be part of the massive development at the northeast corner of Figueroa and 11th Street, across the street from L.A. Live, the current home of the Luxe Hotel. When completed, the development will feature a total of three towers including W Los Angeles Downtown, approximately 650 unbranded residential condominium units, up to 80,000 square feet of premium retail and restaurant space.
Guests arriving at W Los Angeles Downtown will be welcomed in the W Living Room, W’s signature mix and mingle spin on the hotel lobby where global fun-seekers can sip innovative cocktails. Guests and locals will also enjoy a signature restaurant as well as a destination bar that will offer a dynamic nightlife scene. In addition to 250 stylish guestrooms and suites, W Los Angeles Downtown will feature a 5,000 square foot spa with eight treatment rooms; a 2,500 square foot outdoor WET pool deck with poolside bar and grill; and 15,300 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting and event space.
