Rome Will Get The First W Hotel In Italy

W Hotels has been doing quite a bit of expansion in Europe recently with the W Amsterdam opening in late 2015, the W Madrid scheduled to open next year and more W Hotels currently under construction in cities like Prague, Belgrade and Budapest. Now Italy is to get a W Hotel too.

W Dubai – Al Habtoor City Opens Its Doors

Starwood (or should I now call it Marriott?) has announced the opening of the first W Hotel in the UAE with the official launch of the W Dubai - Al Habtoor City. The property is located around 20 minutes drive from Dubai International Airport and 35 minute away from the Dubai Marina. The Burj Khalifa is only around 2 miles away as the crow flies but, thanks to the convoluted road system in the area, it's still around 15 minutes drive away.

New Hotel Opening: W Miami Downtown

There have been a number of hotel announcements already this year like the new Le Meridien in Rome, the new Andaz set for Vienna and a new Hyatt on Miami Beach but some of those are still a few years away from completion so it's hard to get too excited about them. Now, however, we have a slew of new hotels actually opening their doors and I'll be taking a look at a some of them over next few days. The first is the W Miami.

W Hotels Unveils A Pointless “Innovation”

I don't like W Hotels and I tend not to hide that feeling very well. I find them to be all style (and not style that I like) and little to no substance whatsoever. Most of the W 's I've visited are trying too hard to be cool and remind me more of overpriced Vegas nightclubs than upscale hotels. I really don't get why some people seem to like them so much. It's all a bit Emperor's New Clothes.
