W Hotels to Expand Into Budapest

W Hotels Worldwide, now part of Marriott International, has announced an agreement with QPR Properties Kft, part of Constellation Hotels Holding Ltd., to debut the W Hotels brand in Hungary with the opening of W Budapest. Located on Andrassy Avenue, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the hotel will be situated on a prominent shopping street and directly across from the State Opera House.

The hotel will be housed in the Drechsler Palace, which will be fully renovated. W Budapest will have 162 guest rooms and suites, including one Extreme WOW Suite, the brand’s take on the Presidential Suite. The hotel will offer a restaurant and a destination bar, as well as the signature W Living Room lobby experience. Three meeting and event spaces, including a Great Room for larger celebrations, are available, along with an Away Spa, FIT fitness center, and WET pool. Guests can also expect the W brand’s signature Whatever/Whenever service.

Following the openings of W Hotels in Istanbul, Barcelona, St. Petersburg, London, Paris and Verbier, W Amsterdam became the seventh W Hotel in Europe when it opened in October 2015. W Hotels now has a worldwide portfolio of 50 properties around the globe, and is on track to reach 75 hotels by 2020.
