Rent the Runway, W Hotels Unveil Closet That Checks in Before You Do

MIAMI, Fla. — If ‘pack light’ is your travel philosophy, this may be the perfect fit for you.

In an announcement made during Art Basel Miami, apparel rental pioneer Rent the Runway and W Hotels, the Hyatt’s luxury lifestyle brand, have teamed up to change the way women get around the country.

Travelers can get all the perks of Rent the Runway while on the road, thanks to Rent the Runway Closet Concierge, which was initially launched at select W hotels in the U.S., including W Aspen, W South Beach, W Washington D.C. and W Hollywood.

The new service allows women to travel with just a light carry-on and still have access to stylish wardrobes–no packing or baggage required. After booking, W Hotel guests can choose four styles to rent for their stay from Rent the Runway’s Unlimited Closet for $69.

In addition, guests can select from a destination-ready assortment tailored to each W hotel. When their stay is over, guests can drop off the items at checkout.

“Traveling without luggage has always been my dream,” said Jennifer Hyman, co-founder and CEO of Rent the Runway. “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.”

“Skipping the packing process is a whole new level of luxury for our guests and is yet another surprising way [we] continue to reinvent hospitality,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader at W Hotels.
