W Hotels has announced plans to open the W Aspen and The Sky Residences at W Aspen in 2017.
The new property will be the brand’s first alpine escape in North America. The W Aspen is expected to open in time for the 2017 ski season and will be developed by a joint venture between Sarpa Development and Northridge Capital.
The new luxury hotel will be located at the foot of Aspen Mountain, an ideal location for those looking for a quick route up to the slopes.
“As one of the most stunning and vibrant year-round resort towns in the world, Aspen is a destination that has long been on our wishlist,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels. “We are thrilled to bring the W lifestyle to Aspen while simultaneously reinventing the traditional notion of an alpine escape. We’re confident that combined with the brand’s unique programming and cutting-edge design, W Aspen will appeal to locals and international travelers alike.”
Amenities at the W Aspen will include a full service ski shop, meeting and event spaces and will include the brand’s signature Whatever/Whenever service.
