W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott International, today announced it will open W Prague in 2020. W Prague marks the brand’s debut into the Czech Republic and will be located on Wenceslas Square. The hotel will be a renovation of the former Grand Europa Hotel, a radical art nouveau style property that pushed boundaries when it originally opened in 1905.

“As one of Europe’s most exciting and diverse destinations, Prague is a perfect fit for the iconic W brand and is certain to push new limits for Prague’s vibrant hotel scene when it opens in 2020,” said Sandeep Walia, Area Vice President – Luxury Brands, Western Europe, Marriott International.

The historic structure will be combined with a new, modern building to create a blend of old world glamour and bold, contemporary design, according to the brand.

The two buildings will be fully connected to create 154 guestrooms and suites. W Prague will have a rooftop bar and an outdoor terrace. It will also include several restaurants, nearly 3,768 sq. ft. of event space, an indoor pool deck, a fitness center and a spa.
