W Hotels, a member of Marriott Bonvoy, has announced the launch of W Sydney in Sydney, Australia.
Situated within The Ribbon in Darling Harbour, the property targets both travellers and Sydneysiders.
W Hotels vice-president and global brand leader George Fleck said: “W Sydney marks our W Hotels brand’s triumphant return to Sydney, a long-awaited addition to our robust portfolio in Australia, following our recent debuts in Melbourne and Brisbane.
“W Sydney will cultivate a new cultural and social hub in the vibrant Darling Harbour precinct. It is the perfect canvas for a non-conformist approach to the luxury hospitality landscape with W’s bold and energetic ‘Whatever/Whenever’ service ethos, dynamic design and immersive programming as we celebrate Sydney through a new lens.”
The property was designed by Australian architectural company Hassell while the interiors were completed by London-based designer Bowler James Brindley.
The hotel’s copper-clad entrance pays homage to Sydney’s underground railway tunnels as well as features a W sign inspired by the Australian Waratah flower.
