Ooh! A Dual-Branded W And Element Hotel In Downtown Philadelphia Is Coming!

Well, now, this is very cool!

Coming to downtown Philadelphia in early 2018, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. is building its first-ever W and Element dual-branded hotel development.

The 295-room W Philadelphia and 460-room Element Philadelphia will occupy a 51 story skyscraper located directly across from Philadelphia City Hall.

“We have actively pursued this market for some time and look forward to the upcoming debut of both W and Element in Philadelphia as part of this dual-branded development, which will increase Starwood’s total portfolio in the city to 12 hotels across seven of our nine world-class brands,” said Allison Reid, Senior Vice President of North American Development for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.

“Our innovative W Hotels brand provides contemporary luxury and insider access in key urban and exotic destinations worldwide, while Element Hotels is an industry-leader in the eco-space, offering stylish, sustainable extended stay lodging.

These two unique and highly differentiated brands will offer guests a new experience not currently available in the Philadelphia market.”

Combined the W Philadelphia and Element Philadelphia can operate jointly as a 755-room headquarters hotel.

Guests will enter W Philadelphia via the hotel’s distinct entrance on Chestnut Street. The ground-floor will feature a signature W Living Room with a full bar and VIP room and a 150-seat destination restaurant.

In addition, the hotel will feature a 2,900-square foot spa, 1,400-square foot FIT gym, and 7,000-square foot WET outdoor terrace with a year-round heated outdoor pool and destination bar.

The Element Philadelphia will feature a separate arrival lobby on Chestnut Street with elevator access to the main second floor lobby, which will feature a 1,400 square foot breakfast and lounge area, a 1,600-square foot fitness center and 560-square feet of branded meeting space.

The hotel’s light-filled studios will offer a fluid design of modular furniture and guests will be able to stay on the move with Element’s complimentary bikes to borrow program and enjoy the brand’s signature complimentary RISE breakfast and RELAX evening reception.
