W Hotels Worldwide, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, has announced that it will debut its second alpine hotel and its first in North America: The W Aspen and The Sky Residences at W Aspen, which is slated to open for the 2017 winter ski season.

W Aspen, formerly the Sky Hotel, will be situated at the base of Aspen Mountain. Designed by award-winning firm Nemaworkshop in partnership with Rowland+Broughton Architecture and W’s in-house design team, the hotel is being billed as a "modern day mountain chalet" that celebrates the spirit of Aspen, offering 88 guestrooms (including six suites) and 11 W-branded fractional residences. An oversized split level Living Room (the W brand's take on the hotel lobby) serves cocktails and cuisine. Additionally, the hotel will have a 1,600 square foot outdoor patio and a 12,000 square foot rooftop bar and pool overlooking Aspen Mountain. 

A full service ski shop will provide guests with equipment rentals and storage capabilities, while an 1,100 square foot FIT (the W brand’s modern gym concept) will help travelers stay in shape.
