With all the recent news on future W Hotels
and aloft Hotels
circulating on FT and in the media, I decided to compile a list of the future properties of both chains (Note: element Hotels
added on 3/13/07). I hope this list is useful to all W junkies, since *W isn't the quickest in updating their future hotel listings on their website. I will list the hotel, location, planned opening and the number of rooms for each of the hotels IF this information is available.
If you find mistakes in the listing or know of future confirmed or rumored properties that I have not included, please post in the thread and I will update my OP to reflect these changes.
Note: For W Hotels I have broken then up into future international, US and rumored properties. I have also listed them alphabetically either according to country or for US properties according to state. (Originally I had them in order of the opening dates given in the press releases or on the W website but that got too confusing once the list kept getting longer!)
Note: Properties that have been opened will be listed in orange for a short time period after they open until I remove them from this "future" hotel listing.
