A new W Hotel is opening in Riyadh next year

This marks the second W Hotel in Saudi Arabia…

Marriott International is set to debut a new W Hotel in Riyadh with the signing of W Riyadh. It is slated to welcome guests in 2025, further expanding the brand’s footprint in the country, following the announcement of W Trojena last year.

The 210-room W Riyadh will be located in a prime location within KAFD, Riyadh’s premier business and lifestyle destination. On property, guests can look forward to seven restaurants, retail space, and expansive event and meeting facilities.

The hotel’s design plans include the brand’s signature Living Room (W’s signature take on the lobby) and WET deck, where guests can swim and soak up the sun.

Meanwhile, inspiring workout spaces are expected to include AWAY Spa, complete with the FIT fitness centre. The hotel will also provide the brand’s iconic Whatever/Whenever service promise, which will arrange whatever guests want, whenever they want it.

With an unrivalled location, innovative spirit, and unique characteristics of the W Brand, W Riyadh is set to shake up the financial district, offering an urban escape and promising to stun with its eclectic design.
