You can now pack even less when you travel thanks to a new partnership between W Hotels and Rent the Runway.
Travelers staying at select W Hotels properties now enjoy the ability to reserve attire from Rent the Runway’s Unlimited Closet and then have that attire waiting for them when they arrive at their hotel. In addition to picking their own attire, guests also can choose to pick from a specially curated collection of attire that matches a property’s location and feel. When a guest is ready to check out, they just drop off their clothes at the welcome desk and go on their way.
“Traveling without luggage has always been my dream. We are thrilled to partner with W Hotels to bring the RTR Closet Concierge to life, so travelers can simply show up and have their dream closet waiting for them in their hotel room,” said Jennifer Hyman, co-founder and CEO, Rent the Runway.
The Rent the Runway service is currently available at four W Hotels properties: W Aspen, W South Beach, W Hollywood and W Washington D.C.
“W is always looking for ways to give our guests new/next experiences that empower them to express themselves and upgrade their travel experience, and the RTR Closet Concierge does both,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, W Hotels. “Collaborating with Rent the Runway — such a creative, conscious and trend-setting brand — allows us to reinvent the way our guests pack and dress as they travel. Skipping the packing process is a whole new level of luxury for our guests and is yet another surprising way to continue to reinvent hospitality.”

Located on a flat corner in Barcelona’s Poble Nou neighborhood, a site for many a tech startup or already established tech giant (like HP Enterprise and Booking.com), Sopa serves as a perfect lunch spot during the workday. The cafeteria-style eatery lets you fill up on vegetarian and vegan dishes and either dine in, take the food outside to the patio dining area or take it back to the office for a lunchtime meeting.
