World’s Tallest Hotel Opens In Dubai


The JW Marriott brand officially opened the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai on Tuesday.

Acquiring the coveted title of World’s Tallest hotel from the Guinness World Records, the 72-storey property is the first JW Marriott Marquis outside of North America and the 59th addition to the brand’s global luxury portfolio.

A host of international VIPs, including Marriott International’s President & CEO Arne Sorenson were in Dubai last week for the official unveiling.

Soaring at 355 metres, the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai is just 26 metres shorter than New York City’s famed Empire State Building.

“Dubai is an important destination for Marriott International as one of the world’s most exciting cities offering world-class facilities and infrastructure, central location in the region and future growth potential,” said Sorenson.

In addition to serving luxury business travellers, the hotel, which is owned by Emirates Group, targets the lucrative and increasingly important MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) market by filling a long-identified gap in the region. Groups, meetings and conventions of up to 1,000 people can now meet, stay and dine, under one roof.

The hotel is the first in Dubai that is able to accommodate large groups and will play a key role in attracting major conventions and events to the destination. Along with cutting-edge business facilities, the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai features more than 7,500 sq. metres of indoor and outdoor event space, including two ballrooms, and a large selection of world-class dining and entertainment options.

“The opening of this landmark hotel in Dubai is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication to delivering the very best product, facilities and service in this international gateway city,” said Mitzi Gaskins, Vice President and Global Brand Manager for JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts.

The JW Marriott Marquis Dubai offers an array of nine restaurants, and five bars and lounges, including the sky-high steakhouse Prime 68; the experiential sushi restaurant, Izakaya; and stunning cocktail bar Vault, which is situated on the 71st and 72nd floors and features panoramic views of the city.

The hotel is also home to world renowned Indian Restaurant, Rang Mahal by Atul Kochhar, the first Indian chef to be awarded a Michelin Star. [GN]
