W Hotels is coming to Sydney, with completion slated for the luxury hotel at Darling Harbour in 2020.

W Sydney will feature 593 guest rooms, suites and serviced apartments, with a rooftop pool deck dubbed the 'Wet Deck' offering city skyline views.

The hotel will be built and developed by Grocon and funded by Greaton Group and is part of The Ribbon development designed by architect Hassel. 

W Hotels Worldwide global brand leader Anthony Ingham said Sydney is a perfect match for W Hotels.

“Sydney – with its glamorous energy, cultural diversity and statement architecture – is the perfect match for W Hotels."

“Wherever my travels take me, I am asked again and again when W is returning to Sydney, and I am thrilled to finally be able to answer the question.

"With the long-awaited return of the W brand in Sydney, Australia will now have three W hotels, along with W Brisbane and W Melbourne – demonstrating just how important and exciting this continent is for global travel.”

There will be a restaurant, two bar and the brand's signature Living Room and AWAY spa, as well as a state of the art FIT gym, and 925 sqm of event space including a grand ballroom.

Marriott International senior director of hotel development Richard Crawford said they are excited to have found the right location and partner who shares their vision.

“The boundary breaking approach to luxury from W Hotels is a worldwide phenomenon, and there is no better city than Sydney to shake off convention and shake up the way it’s always been done.

"The property will be a game-changer for Sydney and an absolute market leader when it comes to luxury hotels in the city.”

 W Brisbane open in June and W Melbourne is also set for completion in 2020. W Hotels are targeting 75 hotels across the world by the end of 2020.

W Sydney is part of Marriott International's expanding Australian portfolio which currently stands at 18. 

The Ritz-Carlton Melbourne, The Ritz-Calrton Perth and The Tasman, a luxury collection hotel in Hobart, are all under development.

The first Marriott in 20 years is being built in Melbourne's Docklands and is being described as Melbourne's new home of five star living.
