W Hotels debuts in Italy with W Hotel Rome opening. Historic palazzo on the outside, a bold interpretation of luxury inside, W Rome celebrates the Italian attitude and captures the energy of the Eternal City. The 162-room hotel, spanning two adjacent 19th-century palazzi, is located on Via Liguria next to the Spanish Steps.
Guests are welcomed into the hotel via the W Lounge, where seating areas are surrounded by sculptures and pieces of art, while black and gray marble flooring run throughout. Many of the 147 guestrooms and 15 suites have private balconies and terraces.
With an open plan living space, the rooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows wrapped in red wine velvet curtains and wooden herringbone patterned floors that blur into modern marble bathrooms. Glamorous and inviting, the Extreme WOW (Presidential) Suite offers an expansive terrace, adding rare and much-sought-after indoor and outdoor living in the bustling city. The suite’s décor combines historical Roman architectural elements with the latest in-room technology and custom-made modern furniture.
A Tempting Twist on Sicilian Dining
Head chef Ciccio Sultano shakes up the city’s foodie scene, with authentic Sicilian cooking served at Giano Restaurant. The Michelin-starred Chef brings Sicilian flair and unrivaled gastronomic talent to Rome’s dining scene. With a playful use of authentic Italian flavors and indigenous ingredients from Sicily, the restaurant introduces guests to a fusion of Sicilian cuisine with Roman culture. Ciccio’s approach may sound traditional but it’s not.
At the heart of W Hotel Rome is the open-air courtyard, Giardino Clandestino. Guests can socialize and enjoy live entertainment while indulging in an Aperitivo Eterno with Sicilian street food specialties.
World-renowned Pastry Chef Fabrizio Fiorani is the master behind Zucchero x Fabrizio Fiorani – the destination for sweet treats at W Rome. Everything from freshly made pastries to homemade gelato is creatively and expertly curated. Those dining at Giano will receive a coin for the sweet machine in Zucchero, full of handmade chocolates – another unexpected surprise of the W Rome experience.
FUEL Your Stay
Wellness at W Rome has been curated by Italian athlete Pietro Boselli, with the first FUEL x Petra Studio Gym and personal training program. From high-intensity sessions to boxing and yoga, Boselli will offer guests and locals high energy workouts unlike anything else in the city.
