#TOPPED OUT: W HOTEL ABU DHABI

Per Starwood's website (scroll all the way down to the bottom) the hotel is slated to open January 2018. Which judging by the construction pics looks about right.

Pretty sure this is the Edition hotel [link: http://www.tradearabia.com/news/TTN_289897.html] and not the W... Unless the two are right next to each other? In any case, the Abu Dhabi Edition opens next year so if it occupies the more completed white building, then the edgier curved one could be the W if this pans out.

Any clarity would be great. Thanks for the updates!

You might be right, it may be include both. If you go to the map view on the Starwood site and zoom in, it shows this location in Al Bateen as where the W is being built. I would think that two different hotels in this location would be confusing.

^ Could be right; the W was very recently removed from Starwood's master list.

Is it dead in the water? I've never actually even seen dedicated renderings of the W or any property-specific information other than that it would be located at Al Bateen Wharf... yet here we are and the only property coming online soon with information trickling out is the Edition.

Any info from people on the ground? Thanks!

This looks like it would be a really nice place to stay for a few nights.
