Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is the latest city in which the wonderful W Hotel brand has made a home.
“The debut of W Hotels in Budapest marks a monumental milestone and signals a new era of design ethos for our iconic brand,” said George Fleck, vice president and global brand leader at W Hotels. “We look forward to connecting our guests to this timeless and inspiring city through inviting yet unexpected design, imaginative dining, and unparalleled guest programming.”
The 151-room W Budapest is officially open now and available to book through Marriott.com.
Here’s what you can expect from a stay at the world’s newest W Hotel.
The W Budapest
In keeping with the saying that ‘location is everything’, the W Budapest finds itself on Andrássy Avenue — a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Budapest’s swankiest shopping street.
Designers Bánáti + Hartvig and Bowler James Brindley have transformed the historic Drechsler Palace by combining nods to the long history of the building and local Hungarian design with the bold shapes, colors, and patterns that have become synonymous with the W brand.
The design of the hotel also attempts to acknowledge the 2 distinct cities, Buda and Pest, which make up the Hungarian capital, by design elements such as incorporating a juxtaposition of soft layering and metal meshing throughout.
The W Budapest comprises a total of 151 guest rooms of which 45 are suites where the hotel’s deep-rooted connection to ballet is honored most with the all-white WOW suite and all-black Extreme WOW suite.
It wouldn’t be a W Hotel without an impressive array of food and beverage venues.
Taking the top spot as the hotel’s signature restaurant is the Nightingale by Beefbar where Fabio Polidori’s menu boasts a mouthwatering selection of Asian-inspired dishes curated for sharing.Hot Tip:
If you’re going to book a stay at a W Hotel and not use points, then it might be worth considering one of these credit cards which will give you additional perks and benefits.
After dinner, an evening of cocktails and conversations awaits guests in the basement of the hotel at Society25 speakeasy.
And located on the ground floor of the hotel is the W Lounge, where guests can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or conduct a business meeting right through to the sunset and beyond when DJs set the mood.
The opening of the W Budapest will be great news for lovers of the brand as well as those looking for something different for their next visit to the city.
We don’t know about you, but we’d love to check out the new W Budapest for ourselves!
