Nakheel re-opens two prestigous hotels

13 July 2009

Dubai-based Nakheel Hotels announced today that it has re-opened the W Washington DC hotel and the historic Turnberry golf resort in the west of Scotland following extensive renovations to both properties. W Washington DC opened July 8 and is the first W Hotel to open in America's capital city. Originally built in 1888, the 317-room hotel recently completed an 18-month, $100m renovation. Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort, opened on July 9 and will host The Open Championship for the fourth time on its renowned Ailsa golf course from July 16 - 19, 2009. In October of last year, Leisurecorp, a division of Nakheel Leisure, took possession of the resort and launched a $65m refurbishment of the property which focused on the resort's public spaces and 40 of its 211 guest rooms. Both properties are managed by Starwood Hotels and Resorts.
