JW Marriott Marquis Dubai Set To Be World's Tallest Hotel at
Dubai, UAE – February 8, 2012 - A symbol of Dubai’s resurgence and its growing importance at the centre of the global business crossroads will emerge later this year when the 1,608-room JW Marriott Marquis Dubai opens its doors to guests in Q4 this year. A stunning addition to Marriott International’s JW Marriott world-class luxury hotel brand, the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai will open in two phases, with the first section featuring 807 rooms and numerous restaurants and lounges. At a height of 355 meters (1,164 feet), the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai is the tallest dedicated hotel building in the world and is just 26 meters (85 feet) shorter than the Empire State Building in New York.
In addition to serving the luxury business traveler, the hotel
is targeting the lucrative and increasingly important MICE (meetings,
incentives, conferences and exhibitions) market, which currently does
not have a hotel of sufficient scale to host such large groups. In
addition to all the dining and entertainment options, the hotel will
have two ballrooms, 24 meeting rooms and a total of 5,100 square meters
(54,895 square feet) of event space.
The “Marquis” designation is reserved for select downtown properties that offer the highest level of comfort, technology, personal service, meeting facilities, privacy and world-class amenities.
