Marriott International announced it has signed agreements to debut two new W Hotels in Italy with the signings of W Milan - Duomo and W Naples.
Both hotels are slated to welcome guests in 2024, further expanding the brand’s footprint in the country, following the recent opening of W Rome and the signing of W Florence in 2021.
W Milan - Duomo will bring the brand’s DNA to the heart of Milan’s Fashion District. It will be located close to the city’s cultural landmarks including Piazza del Duomo, Teatro alla Scala and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele.
First built as a bank in the 1920s, W Milan - Duomo will be redesigned by Milan-based architects Stefano Boeri Architetti and international design firm Yabu Pushelberg. The hotel will feature 166 guestrooms and 36 suites, including an Extreme WOW Suite.
The hotel’s rooftop will include the brand’s signature WET deck as well as an exclusive rooftop bar, W Lounge, and a signature restaurant. All complete with outdoor terraces and positioned to offer panoramic views of the city.
The workout spaces will include a 380-square-metre AWAY Spa, complete with an indoor pool and FIT fitness centre. Guests will also have access to the W brand’s iconic Whatever/Whenever® service.
We are delighted to work with Marriott International on this exciting project, which will become a new point of reference in Milan for luxury lifestyle under the socially driven W brand. W Milan - Duomo will be an icon in the city for years to come.

The hotel will be situated close to several touristic amenities, such as the ancient Via Toledo known as the shopping street of Naples, the glass domed Galleria Umberto I and the UNESCO-listed, Teatro San Carlo, which is one of the oldest opera houses in the world.
The property is expected to feature 78 guestrooms, including 17 suites, several of which offer private terraces. The interior transformation will be headed up by the acclaimed Rockwell Group and design plans include a signature restaurant, W Lounge and FIT fitness center.
