This morning, the Statesman reported that the beleaguered W Hotel would reopen Saturday (pending city approval). Reaching out for clarification, reps of the restaurant told Eater "Everything is actually on hold at the moment. The hotel has not confirmed an opening date at this time."
But that's not about to stop rumors from flying: KXAN hears they might be open by Monday! But definitely no later than July 15? In any case, the good news is "ongoing employment was provided during the closure" and the staff is using the extra time to go through some training.
