W Sydney appoints Roxanne Markovina as DSM

Roxanne Markovina has been appointed as director of sales and marketing for W Sydney ahead of its opening next year.

Slated to open in November 2022 on the Darling Harbour waterfront, W Sydney will offer 585 guestrooms and suites within one of Sydney’s most striking new architectural landmarks, The Ribbon.

Previously at W Brisbane, Markovina joins W Sydney general manager Craig Seaward as a key member of the management team who will steer the hotel’s pre-opening and opening in 2022.

“I am thrilled to come on board and drive sales and marketing for the launch of this extraordinary new W, the largest in the world,” she said.

“With its bold design narrative and uniquely W take on luxury, W Sydney will transform the Darling Harbour precinct and disrupt and ignite the hotel landscape in Sydney. It’s a once-in-a-career moment and I’m honoured to have been given the opportunity.”

W Sydney will also feature a two-storey rooftop bar, heated infinity pool with views over Darling Harbour, an all-day dining restaurant and Living Room bar, as well as 1300sqm of state-of-the-art event space.
