W Hotels Worldwide has announced the opening of W Xiamen in China. Owned by Xiamen Powerlong Industrial Group, the hotel is set in Xiamen’s trendy, downtown East Business District.
The hotel’s design by Hirsch Bedner Associates pays tribute to Xiamen’s tropical surroundings, natural beauty of its harbor, and its transformation from an industrial port city to a modern music mecca. Here, the mixing of people over millennia has inspired an idiosyncratic culture that embraces wildly varied musical forms and young, rebellious attitudes which W Xiamen captures through show-stopping digital installations and specially commissioned art pieces.
