We have long supported the hospitality industry, helping clients stand out from the crowd with unparalleled comfort, convenience and quality.



WSP knows hospitality. Over the past several decades, our experts have delivered more than 500 projects across 80 countries, building in-depth experience across all parts of this global industry, from refurbishing heritage hotels to designing vast entertainment complexes, from state-of-the-art convention centers to luxury beach resorts.

Our project experience spans a wide variety of facilities - from the landmark MGM CityCenter Complex in Las Vegas to the Los Angeles Convention Center and Hotel, and from the InterContinental New York Times Square to the Park Hyatt Hotel at One57 in New York.

With a sensitive approach to design and unrivaled engineering intellect, our teams are perfectly placed to facilitate excellence in this competitive field. We work with leading hotel brands, signature architects, property developers, and management companies to create exceptional, sustainable, and cost-effective buildings that will generate value for their owners far into the future.

Above all, we know it is the guests who matter most. Whether we’re designing multiple buildings in a single hotel complex, or building systems for the restoration of a historic hotel in a national park, our sights remain firmly on the end user. That’s how to create places they’ll never want to leave.

Memorable Stays Made Possible

Whatever the budget and wherever the location, hotels and resorts thrive when their customers head home inspired by their experience and eager to return. In a competitive market, that’s not always easy: providing maximum comfort, convenience, and entertainment, all in a safe and stylish environment, is a major undertaking.

We understand the need to wow visitors with enhanced views and awe-inspiring features, from triple-height swimming pools to indoor waterfalls, but we also know that fundamentals matter. That means having the right building systems in place to keep your guests comfortable day and night, all year round.

Preserving the Past, Protecting the Future

For communities, leisure is a serious business. A new resort or a refurbished hotel can bring immense value to an area and its economy, but blending the latest improvements with local history and landscape requires thoughtful and sustainable development.

Our experts understand that sensitivity is a must, whether respecting the unique heritage of a century-old hotel or the fragile natural environment of a new beach resort. We tailor our skills and experience to suit the specific character and setting of every project, while maintaining the consistently high standards our clients stake their reputation upon. Through efficient design and pioneering technology, we find ways to conserve precious water and energy resources, helping set sustainable benchmarks for contemporary hospitality and preserving resources for generations to come.

Rewarding Investments in Hospitality

From family days in the sun to thrilling casino wins, or simply the best night’s sleep you can remember, hotels offer priceless experiences, but owners and operators are well aware of the costs that are entailed in their creation. Therefore, finding value for money in construction and beyond is key for all players in the high-pressure world of hospitality.

At WSP, we are experts in efficiency. With tight coordination and cutting-edge software, we manage ambitious deadlines and challenging sites to make sure our clients see great results quickly, without compromising guest’s comfort. Whether we’re creating extra space with thinner floor structures or reducing energy bills with state-of-the-art building systems, we know how to get the most out of assets – because investments should generate returns, even in paradise.
