HO­TEL NEWS

Business Traveller (India) - - UPFRONT -

MAR­RIOTT has an­nounced plans for its first W Ho­tels prop­erty in Italy, with the 159-room Rome ho­tel sched­uled to open in 2021. W Rome will be housed within two his­toric build­ings in the city’s Via Veneto dis­trict. Fea­tures will in­clude a rooftop bar, the brand’s sig­na­ture W Liv­ing Room lobby con­cept, FIT work­out fa­cil­ity and spa, “two vi­brant restau­rants” and 120 sqm of meet­ing space. TWA HO­TEL is sched­uled to open in 2018 on the rooftop of the name­sake (and erst­while) ter­mi­nal at New York’s John F. Kennedy In­ter­na­tional Air­port. The cen­tral lounge area, car­peted and up­hol­stered in TWA’s sig­na­ture red, will be­come the ho­tel lobby and be sur­rounded by eight bars and six restau­rants. The ter­mi­nal’s for­mer Lis­bon Lounge, Paris Café, and Am­bas­sador’s Club will also find new life as drink­ing and din­ing spa­ces. The ter­mi­nal’s me­chan­i­cal flight-in­for­ma­tion boards will be re­vamped and re­pur­posed to de­liver ho­tel and event re­lated mes­sages. Guest rooms will be housed in a pair of new tow­ers curv­ing over the for­mer ter­mi­nal build­ing.
