The hotel is expected to open in 2015 and will be managed by Jaguar Buildcon.

W Mumbai will be part of the Namaste Tower, a 55-storey, mixed-use building designed by WS Atkins to look like clasped hands.

The hotel will offer 350 guestrooms, two restaurants, one bar, a lounge, a pool deck, a fitness centre, a spa and retail stores.

Starwood operates 41 W Hotels worldwide and plans to increase this to more than 50 by the end of 2012.
