Traveling just got a little sweeter.

Being cutting-edge is fleeting, but staying cutting-edge is a full-time pursuit. Not even 15 years after the first W Hotel debuted in Manhattan, the company is embarking on a $100 million renovation on 11 of its North American hotels, including properties in Seattle, New Orleans, New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago and Montreal. Many of the renovations focus on the Living Room — the brand’s riff on a traditional lobby — and will be based on plans by rising design stars such as Krause + Sawyer, Skylab Architecture, dash Design and Mars Culture.
