W Hotels picks Panama for its first property in Central America
Panama has recently been granted the honour of becoming the location for the first ever W Hotels property in Central America. Run by prestigious hospitality company Marriott International S.A., the new hotel is expected to open its doors to the public in 2018. In addition to boosting lodgings for local tourism industry, the property has provided jobs for over 200 people.
Although it was not new to Latin America, W Hotels did not count with any properties in the central region of this area until very recently.
The blossoming nation of Panama was selected for this bold move and after years of construction works, the lavish hotel is almost ready to open to the public. As of next year, the brand will inaugurate this luxurious property in Panama City, which will be managed by prominent hospitality company Marriott International S.A.
The new W Hotels property not only brought prestige to Panama’s developing capital, but also boosted work opportunities in the tourism industry, creating more than 200 jobs for locals. Before making the announcement that the property would finally be ready to open its doors in 2018, the hotel chain had carefully selected specialised staff to ensure high-quality service. The jobs included attentive, multilingual receptionists, sales agents, maintenance and lodging experts, security personnel, food and drinks specialists, technical department workers and night club managers, among others.
Akis Neocleous, General Manager for W Panama, pointed out that the company is currently looking to put together the best possible team in order to provide clients with the best service. Neocleous stated:
“We are looking to work up an appetite for life and inspire audacious and magnetic activities. The main goal of this initiative is to build a dynamic and creative team, formed by people who are truly in sync with the W style.”
W Hotels was already present in the region with three properties spread out across important cosmopolitan cities in Latin America. Panama comes in fourth and as the first in Central America, following Mexico City in Mexico (North America), Bogota in Colombia and Santiago de Chile in Chile (South America).
As it continues to expand, W Hotels promises to keep gaining expertise and wining over important ground in the hospitality industry. The hotel chain, which specializes in luxury lodgings and services, inaugurated its first property in New York in 1998. By 2020, W Hotels is expected to reach the sum of 75 lavish properties spread out across different corners of the world including Asia, Europe and Latin America.
