W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott International, have announced the signing of W Osaka, slated to open in 2021. Owned by Sekisui House, a long-standing partner of Marriott International, this opening will be the first-ever W in Japan. The 27-floor, new-build hotel will boast provocative and bold W design, sparking imagination in each of its 337 guestrooms and suites, electrifying restaurants and cocktail-centric bars.
“In 2020, Japan will capture the global spotlight, welcoming nations from around the world to the country on a grand scale for the 2020 games. This is a great build up to the launch of the first-ever W in Japan,” said Anthony Ingham (main picture) global brand leader for W Hotels Worldwide. “W is always bringing its new/next vision and bold approach to new destinations, especially cities as vibrant and energetic as Osaka. We are confident W Osaka will add even more energy and excitement to this already action-packed year in Japan.”
W Osaka will bring 337 guestrooms, including 35 Suites, two WOW Suites and one EWOW Suite (the brand’s take on the Presidential Suite) to the city. The hotel will feature multiple dining and craft cocktail concepts including the WOO Bar and a second bar located on the expansive WET Deck (pool).
W Osaka will also welcome guests to keep up with their personal fitness and wellness routines with a state-of-the-art fitness centre, FIT, and the AWAY Spa where travelers can detox and refuel. Ultra-modern event facilities will make any meeting or social gathering a part of the action with a 400-square-meter Great Room.
“We are excited to add yet another Marriott International property to our portfolio and even more thrilled to be introducing a brand as daring as W to the country,” said Isami Wada, Chairman of Sekisui House. “It will be an exciting year for Japan, and the W brand will surely offer limitless experiences to those visiting from all corners of the world.”
