W Hotels Worldwide Debuts in China
Situated in the heart of bustling Guangzhou city, W Hotels Worldwide celebrates the grand opening of their first property in China, W Guangzhou. With an iconic architectural building set on the ancient Pearl River, the five-star hotel brings a new interpretation of modern luxury to China, seamlessly blending the city’s storied traditions with the grandeur modern designs of W Hotels. The 317 guestrooms and suites are a retreat away from the hustle and bright lights of the city, and come equipped with exclusive amenities in the ‘Muchie Box,’ a signature W bed, a 46” LED HD television, state-of-the-art surround sound systems and high speed Wi-Fi access.
W Guangzhou is situated in the city’s bustling Pearl River New Town District, a rapidly evolving center of entertainment, commerce and design, that is home to dozens of Fortune 500 companies and luxury shopping malls, adjacent to some of China’s oldest cultural treasures. The hotel offers a fully integrated contemporary lifestyle experience that stylishly reflects Guangzhou’s unique energy and personality as an ancient city in the midst of a modern economic explosion.
The design of W Guangzhou uniquely juxtaposes the historic capital city’s modern urban tapestry through its cutting-edge architecture and modern interiors. The exterior, defined by sleek black glass, has been envisioned by renowned architect Rocco Yim, who has developed some of China’s most recognisable and iconic projects. A stunning entrance features a 19-meter tall “Luminous Water Wall” by WETDesign, evocative of Impressionist paintings with a liquid mosaic of light, lines and colour.
