W Hotels Worldwide Aims to Open First Hotel in Central America by 2016

W Hotels Worldwide recently announced it has signed an agreement with Evolution Tower Corp, a joint venture between F & F Properties and EFC Group Inc., to debut the W Hotels brand in Central America.

Slated to open in early 2016, W Panama will be part of the 50-floor Evolution Tower, a mixed-use building, including premium office space, located in the heart of the city’s financial district.

W Panama will be built on Calle 50, just steps away from Uruguay Street, which is known as the Zona Rosa of Panama and is bustling with stylish restaurants and nightclubs.

In a combination of sophistication and style, W Panama will reveal surprising elements layer by layer throughout the hotel. Panamanian architect Saul Bassan has created an exclusive design façade for the building, and Krause & Sawyer have been brought on board to lead interior design work for the hotel.

W Panama will offer a fully integrated, contemporary lifestyle experience, including 203 stylish guest rooms, with 24 suites, three Wow suites, and one Extreme Wow suite (the W brand’s take on the Presidential Suite), two signature restaurants, the W Living Room experience (reinterpretation of the traditional hotel lobby), a destination nightclub, WET pool deck, spa and an 8,400-square-foot WORKOUT fitness facility.
