Hot Openings: W debuts in Switzerland

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has opened W Verbier, the brand's first ski and alpine resort.
W Verbier and The Residences at W Verbier are owned by Swiss-based Les Trois Rocs and located next to the main M├ędran gonzola, at the foot of the Verbier ski slopes.

The properties offer ski-in, ski-out access. Concrete Architectural Associates drew inspiration from the way a ski carves through snow in designing W Verbier, which occupies four wooden chalet-style buildings connected by a glass atrium. The resort offers 123 guestrooms, including an Extreme Wow Suite, and 15 W-branded Residences. All guestrooms and suites include a fireplace and a balcony overlooking the mountains; rustic interiors contrast with sleek furnishings.
