GA Design International to design interiors of W Marrakech

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide will launch the W brand in Marrakech in 2017 with the opening of W Marrakech. Owned by Morocco-based Menatlas 14, the 148-room hotel will be located in the city's Hivernage district.

Located between Medina and Guéliz, W Marrakech will be near Menara Gardens with easy access to boutiques and nightlife destinations. The hotel and residences will also be near the Medina, and a 15-minute drive from Marrakech Menara Airport.

The interiors of the new-build project will be designed by GA Design International, which also designed other Starwood hotels, including W Taipei and The St. Regis Osaka. W Marrakech will have 148 guestrooms and suites, including one Extreme WOW Suite (the W brand's interpretation of the Presidential Suite).

W Marrakech will also offer a signature restaurant, an all-day dining venue, a destination bar, an outdoor bar and W Living Room (an updated take on the traditional hotel lobby). Other amenities will include an Away Spa, FIT fitness facility, WIRED 24-hour business center and an outdoor WET pool deck.

W Marrakech will also have more than 10,764 square feet of meeting and event space, including a ballroom for larger celebrations.

Starwood currently has three hotels in Morocco, including Le Méridien N'Fis in Marrakech, as well as Le Royal Mansour Méridien and Sheraton Casablanca Hotel & Towers both located in Casablanca.

With 44 hotels and retreats open, W is on track to reach more than 60 hotels by 2018, expanding its presence from Amsterdam to Tel Aviv, Bogota to Beijing, Brisbane to Abu Dhabi and more.
