Now Open- JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, The World’s Tallest Hotel

JW Marriott Marquis, Dubai

It’s official; the world’s tallest hotel has welcomed its first guests to Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai. Standing at a height of 355 meters (or 26 meters shorter than New York’s Empire State Building), the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai is immense in size-- spread across two towers. As we reported back in May, the hotel will open in two phases. The first tower with 804 rooms is now in its soft opening phase, along with three restaurants.

Eventually—after the Grand Opening celebration in February 2013-- the hotel will have a whopping 10 restaurants, four bars, two lounges, expansive conference facilities, and the Saray Spa and Health Club. All guest rooms promise sky-high views and the latest technology; Executive rooms come with free breakfast and wifi.

Located in the city’s business district, the JW Marriott Marquis is courting the Meetings, Incentives, Conference and Events market. General Manager Rupprecht Queitsch says the hotel is “working in tandem with the Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing and Dubai Convention Bureau to put Dubai on the global business destination map.” For more information, visit
