Marriott to Bring Luxury Brand 'W Hotels' to Riyadh

W Hotels, a global hospitality brand renowned for its presence from Bangkok to Boston, is set to make its mark on Saudi Arabia’s hospitality scene with W Riyadh, slated to open in 2025.

Featuring the brand’s signature amenities, the Riyadh-based W Hotel will offer guests the AWAY Spa, FIT fitness centre, Living Room, WET Deck, the Whatever/Whenever service, and—true to the hotelier’s reputation—a bold and distinctive design.

“The Kingdom has surpassed Vision 2030 tourism expectations seven years ahead of schedule which sets the stage for future growth,” Gautam Sashittal, CEO of KAFD DMC, shares with SceneTraveller. “Our collaboration with Marriott International marks a pivotal milestone in our ongoing expansion efforts. W Riyadh is an exciting addition to the company’s hospitality offerings and will help position KAFD as a lifestyle destination of choice.”

A 20-minute drive from King Khaled International Airport, the 210-key W Riyadh will be located in Riyadh’s King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD), the world’s largest LEED-certified mixed-use business destination, spanning 1.6 million square metres of office spaces, retail outlets, luxury residences and hotels, as well as entertainment and cultural venues.
