Marriott International has signed a management agreement with a Vietnamese ownership group, Binh Minh Import Export Production and Trade, to open a JW Marriott luxury branded hotel in Hanoi in 2012.

The 450-room, nine-story JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi represents Marriott’s growing pipeline of hotels in Vietnam. It will be the only hotel adjacent to the new, state-of-the-art National Convention Center in the city’s dynamic Tu Liem District, about 7.5 kilometers west of central Hanoi and 22.5 kilometers south of the airport.

Central to the city’s Master Plan through 2020, the hotel will be surrounded by high-end residential apartments and townhouses, office buildings and recreational green space when it opens.

“Vietnam ranks high in our strategic global expansion plans,” said Ed Fuller, president and managing director for international lodging for Marriott. “Despite the current global economic slump, Vietnam remains committed to long-term economic growth and to capitalizing on its attractiveness as a tourism destination for visitors especially from Asia, the United States and Europe where our robust market presence will provide a strong sense of familiarity for those considering a visit to Vietnam.”

Mr. Vu Quang Hoi, chairman of the owning company, added, “Our wish is to attract all the foreign delegations for conferences and individual travelers to stay and enjoy what will be the best hotel here in Hanoi. With architecture designed by Carlos Zapata, a top U.S. hotel designer, JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi will be well-fitted in the beautiful premises of the National Convention Center. We believe that the JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi, managed by Marriott International, will meet demands of the incentive and conference-oriented travelers to Hanoi.”

The JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi will feature an inviting lobby which aims to encourage guests to linger over a morning coffee, meet with colleagues and acquaintances for impromptu business or social gatherings and to unwind at day’s end.

The hotel will have three restaurants including a casual, all-day food outlet featuring a permanent grand buffet, a Vietnamese restaurant with four private dining rooms; a specialty themed restaurant offering two private dining rooms and a café/delicatessen where guests can order quick snacks.

Accommodations at the JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi will feature separate showers and tubs; plush bed and bath amenities; high definition, flat screen television; high-speed Internet access; and in-room safe, mini-bar and coffee and tea service.

Business-oriented amenities will include an executive lounge with a meeting room for small conferences and a fully-equipped business center.

For recreation, the hotel will have a spa and fitness center as well as an outdoor, heated swimming pool. Other amenities will be a gift shop and concierge desk.

For meetings and social events, the JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi will have 2,150 square meters of space. Included will be a 1,000-square meter grand ballroom that will be divisible into five sections; a 450-square meter ballroom that will be divisible into three sections and five meeting rooms in varying configurations, all of which will also be divisible into two or three sections.

Marriott International currently is represented in Vietnam with two hotels in Ho Chi Minh City and a 271-room JW Marriott Resort is scheduled to open in Danang in 2013. In Asia, Marriott International’s portfolio today consists of 111 hotels in 16 countries. More than 50 hotels and resorts are under construction in the region.
